Our annual Top 10 Biblical Archaeology story is due to be posted by Christianity Today any day now and we’re leaking the list on this program. The top item on our list also happens to be the cover story from the latest issue of ARTIFAX magazine.

As for the rest of the Top 10, you’ll have to listen to the program, or else read the story at the Christianity Today website, when it’s posted.

My thanks to Todd Bolen, professor of Biblical Studies at The Master’s University and editor of for joining me on the program. Todd and John DeLancey, of Biblical Israel Ministries and Tours, were both kind enough to share their thoughts with me as I was putting together this year’s list. This is a subjective list of some of the top discoveries and developments in biblical archaeology in 2017.
