Are the stories of the Bible history, or mythology? The science of archaeology can help to provide the answer. On January 30, 2016, Kevin Conover of the Educate for Life radio program interviewed Dr. Scott Stripling and Dr. Bryant Wood of ABR.

With the 2015 summer dig season complete, 22 volunteers took a day of rest (Shabbat) before embarking on a series of field trips in the Holy Land. While many of the sites visited are well-known, just as many are not well known to many of the group. But where to start?

The 2015 summer dig season is now in the books! We had an amazing three weeks of discoveries, sightseeing, lectures, and Christian fellowship.

The second week of our dig at Khirbet el-Maqatir has ended. Our early morning alarms have been turned off, and we are ready to relax for the weekend!

2015 marks the 20th anniversary of the beginning of the Khirbet el-Maqatir dig and also the 13th season of excavations at the site. We had some extra work to do at the beginning of the week in order to clean up the destruction caused by vandals following our 2014 spring season. The beautifully-preserved walls of a first-century town, which we worked hard to uncover from 2011 to 2014, sadly were demolished. After a few days of hard work, we are now excavating in all areas.

The battle of Jericho is one of the bloodiest episodes of the Old Testament. It's a fantastic tale of victory through faith—but is there any truth behind the story? Archaeologist Dr. Bryant Wood believes the physical evidence indicates the biblical account is true.

ABR's ongoing excavation at Khirbet el-Maqatir in 2014 brought to light some exciting new finds.

The one event that shaped the world more than any other during the last century was World War II. Conservative estimates place the number killed during the conflict as well north of 55,000,000 (http://www.historyonthenet.com/WW2/statistics.htm). In Europe, the war officially began in September of 1939 with Germany's invasion of Poland. Over succeeding months, the German Wehrmacht would sweep through and take Norway, Denmark, Belgium, and the Netherlands.
