Prof. Yossi Garfinkel will be at Florida College in Temple Terrace, FL, next Tuesday (Nov. 18th) to give a presentation on the archaeological finds from Khirbet Qeiyafa in Israel. This event is part of the school’s Life Enrichment program and is free and open to the public.
This is the excavation I was with for five years. Several Florida College faculty and alumni worked at Khirbet Qeiyafa under Prof. Garfinkel. The site is located along the Elah Valley where David fought Goliath in 1 Samuel 17. Its finds have recharged scholarly debates over David and the existence/character of an early Israelite kingdom. If you are interested in the Bible or in biblical history, this presentation is a must.
The presentation begins at 7:30pm in Puckett Auditorium on the FC campus.
