REALL's Monthly Meeting - Archaeology and the Bible

Markus Kessler will discuss the book, "The Bible Unearthed, Archaeology's New Vision of Ancient Israel and the Origin of Its Sacred Texts" by Israel Finkelstein and Neil Asher Silberman.

Some info about the book: "Archaeology has helped us to reconstruct the history behind the Bible, both on the level of great kings and kingdoms and in the modes of everyday life. And as we will explain in the following chapters, we now know that the early books of the Bible and their famous stories of early Israelite history were first codified (and in key respects composed) at an identifiable place and time: Jerusalem in the seventh century BCE."

    The best information in one place on Biblical origins I've yet seen. Outstanding presentation. Intense subject matter. Time flew

    Markus spoke to our Book Club on this topic. His presentation was excellent. He really makes sense of this stuff.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
