Understanding Biblical Archaeology
Many of the places mentioned in the Bible can be witnessed in modern times: Jerusalem, Hebron, Tiberias, Bethlehem and Jericho, to name a few. Others, like the cities of Megiddo, Hazor and Gezer, are known only by their ruins.
This volume, which shares more than 100 years of scientific archaeology, provides you with greater insight into the lives and customs of the ancient peoples who inhabited the region.
Understanding the Alphabet of the Dead Sea Scrolls
The most important discovery of documents written in the “Jewish” script is the discovery of the documents from the Judean desert, known as “the Dead Sea Scrolls”. These show the graphic evolution of the so called “Jewish” letter forms.
Understanding the Boat from the Time of Jesus
The ancient boat from the Sea of Galilee exhibited at the Yigal Allon Museum at Kibbutz Ginosar speaks of pivotal times on the lake two millennia ago, when an itinerant rabbi walked its shores and sailed its waters with his followers, and changed the world forever.
This volume aims to give the non-expert reader an in-depth understanding of the boat, the story of her discovery and excavation and, most importantly, her significance for illuminating Jesus’ ministry by helping us better understand its contemporaneous milieu of seafaring and fishing on the Sea of Galilee.
