TMOT 8071 Seminar: Biblical Archaeology (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

Professional archaeologists have been at work in the Holy Land for over a century. Their findings have shed much light on the life and culture of the people who write the biblical texts, and their interpretative work has at times confirmed and at other times challenged the biblical narrative. In this course, students will have the opportunity to learn basic archaeological techniques, study their application to important biblical sites, and learn the methods of interpretation that give rise to confirmation and criticism of the biblical narrative.
