  • From Ramesses to Shiloh: Archaeological Discoveries Bearing on the Exodus-Judges Period

  • Missions of the Mind: Christianity's Colossal Failure to Win on the Home Front

  • Megiddo, The Place of Battles

    Although Megiddo has been extensively chronicled in extra-biblical sources, it is only mentioned 12 times in the OT 1 and once, indirectly, as Armageddon in the NT (Rv 16:16). Most Christians know the book of Revelation prophesies an end-times battle...

    It is the southern Mesopotamian backdrop that provides the basis for studying the account in light of what is known of the culture and history of Mesopotamia. One of the immediate results of that perspective is firm conviction that the tower that...

    In Genesis 6:1–8 we read about some persons who may be a pre-Flood link between the Bible and the cultures of the ancient Near East. They are the “sons of the gods.” The biblical reference to them should have some relationship with historical fact. If...
