Digging for Truth TV

Today, we continue our interview with Dr. Scott Stripling on the Amarna Letters. These communications between Canaan and Egypt in the 14th century BC are highly useful for understanding the background of the book of Joshua and early Judges. Dr. Stripling will propose a NEW translation from Amarna tablet 288, so you don’t want to miss this cutting edge episode of Digging for Truth!

When the Israelites began conquering the Promised Land around 1406 BC, the book of Joshua indicates Canaan was controlled by kings. In the 1880’s, an archive of tablets was discovered in Amarna, Egypt. What can these tablets tell us about the land of Canaan, and how do they relate to the biblical books of Joshua and early Judges? Archaeologist and Shiloh Excavation Director Dr. Scott Stripling joins us from The Bible Seminary to help us better understand the Amarna Letters.

Biochemist Dr. Brian Thomas joins us to discuss intact proteins, hemoglobin, and DNA discovered in fossils from all around the world, including in Dinosaurs.

Find out on this exciting episode of Digging for Truth.
