1414 Rustom Mkhjian – Bethany Beyond the Jordan
Dug out this interview from our 1999 Book & The Spade tour, after I found out that Religion and Ethics News Weekly recently visited the same location and also interviewed Rustom Mkhjian. Fifteen years later and he’s still there. We’ll link to the RENW story from this blog when their feature airs. The site is Wadi Kharrar, along the Jordan River, just across from Jericho.
UPDATE #1 – Here’s the first report from Kim Lawton on “The Other Holyland,” with some quotes from Rustom Kkhjian. She says a further report is coming later.
