Have you ever wondered how archaeology influences Bible scholarship? Informed by ancient literature and previous archaeological finds, archaeologists can uncover and record brand-new insights into the ancient world. Dr. Jodi Magness says, “The goal of archaeology is not the process of digging. It’s the publication of what we dig up—because if we don’t publish what we dig up, we’ve destroyed the information and we have then made it inaccessible to others.”
Biblical archaeology has to be carefully documented, she says, because “it’s an experiment that cannot be replicated.” When scholars and pastors depend on that information to help others visualize the biblical world, archaeologists can’t afford to leave any stone unturned.
In Mobile Ed’s latest course, Dr. Craig Evans and a team of prominent archaeologists teach you how biblical archaeology works and why it matters—on active dig sites throughout the holy lands.
“We’re going to start with the ground, dig into it, find things and take you all the way from the point it begins to the point where it is exhibited in museums and written about in textbooks—come on, join me. You’re going to have a lot of fun doing this.” —Dr. Craig Evans
In this course, you’ll journey through an actual dig site and see each part of the process. The findings from this particular dig site shed light on what life was like during the time of Jesus and the apostles—so your personal Bible study can directly benefit from what you learn.
