I’ve been remiss for a few weeks. Here is a roundup of some interesting things.
- Todd Bolen has posted his Top 8 Archaeological Discoveries Related to the Bible for 2008.
- For jewelry buffs – A very large stash of perfectly preserved gold coins from the 7th-century A.D. were recently discovered in a Jerusalem dig. A well-designed gold, pearl and emerald earring from 1,700 – 2,000 years ago was also found in Jerusalem.
- I have had the privilege to visit the British Museum, with its rich collections of antiquities, on two occasions. Neither visit has been for as long a duration as I would wish. The museum currently has a special exhibit titled “Bablyon: Myth and Reality.” There are many Bible connections to Babylon. I hope to have an opportunity to visit the exhibit soon. If you are able to visit before it ends on March 15th, you will probably enjoy.
- I’ve referred to Ferrell Jenkins before, but his blog is updated frequently with interesting information and photos. One of my favorites.
- Another blog that I check daily is that of Dr. Leen Ritmeyer, whose archaeologically-based drawings have been sought by movie producers, National Geographic, and the ESV Study Bible. The site has various media products for sale, including PowerPoint files, books, digital images and CD’s of his work.
