Old Testament Archaeology
Facilitator: Dr. Brennan Breed
Archaeology is the study of the fragmentary remains of the past, and is a powerful tool that can help shed light on our understanding of ancient Israel and its scriptures. While many Christians want archaeological study to simply prove the Bible, and some critics of Christianity simply want it to disprove the Bible, archaeology instead offers us a deep context about the ancient world from which the Bible emerged.
In the second week of our study, we will learn about the archaeology of the Eighth century BC in Judah and Israel, which offers us background and context that unlock the meaning of the prophetic books of Amos, Micah, and Isaiah. Over the course of these two sessions, we will gain an overview of the methods and results of the archaeology of ancient Israel that will help us deepen our understanding of the entire Bible.
