1338 Steve Ortiz – Khirbet Qeiyafa Shrines
Excavations for 2012 continue at Khirbet Qeiyafa, an important Iron Age site overlooking the Elah Valley in Israel. Just a few weeks ago, archaeologist Yosef Garfinkel announced some of the most exciting finds of 2011, a couple of small, portable shrines. What do these shrines have to say about the Israelite monarchy and the Israelite religion of 3,000 years ago?
In this program we continue our discussion of the significance of the Qeiyafa excavation with Steve Ortiz, a professor of Archaeology and Old Testament backgrounds at Southwest Baptist Theological Seminary.
