Join the Associates for Biblical Research (ABR) in our archaeological excavation of Khirbet el-Maqatir - the probable remains of the city of Ai, which Joshua conquered (Joshua 7-8). Recent excavations at the site have also revealed the remains of a city from the time of Jesus - possibly the city of Ephraim mentioned in John 11:53-54.
ABR has monitored the situation in Israel carefully, and after prayerful consideration is planning to continue their excavations of the site from May 22 - June 11, 2016. In 2013, a rare 15th century BC Egyptian scarab was discovered (named Christianity Today's top biblical archaeological find of 2013). What will be unearthed this year?
The deadline for applications is April 30, 2016, and there is still room available. Contact Henry B. Smith Jr., Administrative Director, for questions and to sign up.
