Research Topics

This issue of Bible and Spade focuses on the archaeological research and field work being conducted by ABR at Khirbet el-Maqatir, Israel, in The Search for Joshua's Ai. Henry and Birzavit Smith share their experience as diggers during the 2010 season. Dr. Bryant Wood provides readers with an overview of the work completed since ABR returned to Israel in 2009 after a nine year hiatus. We are featuring a reprint of an important article by ABR's founder, Dr. David Livingston, entitled: Locating Biblical Bethel. This important and groudbreaking research remains critical in finding the correct location of Joshua's Ai, AND refuting the critics who undermine the history of Scripture. In addition, Dr. Scott Stripling provides readers with a brief report on the excavation that took place in January 2011 of the Byzantine Monastery at Khirbet el-Maqatir.
