Backgrounders on the Bible through Biblical Archaeology

1510-1512 Dale Manor – Tel Beth Shemesh

dalemanorpixNot a lot to see at Tel Beth Shemesh (compared with some other sites), but an important excavation, nonetheless. The current excavation has been going on for a quarter century, and Bet Shemesh has an interesting biblical history, as recorded in I Samuel 4-6.

In recent years, the excavators at Tel Beth Shemesh have uncovered part of a Bronze Age Palace, and nearby a temple from a couple hundred years later.

Dale Manor of Harding University is a field director of the dig and gives us an update on the site. We also discuss his latest book, “Digging Deeper into the Word – The Relevance of Archaeology to Christian Apologetics”
