Interest in things ancient, especially as they relate to matters of faith is at an all time high. Believer and non-believer alike are fascinated to see the evidences, and lack of evidences, that substantiate or bring into question, matters of faith.
Every believer is encouraged by rational reasons to believe. Every non- believer is similarly encouraged by rational reasons for their “faith” in having no faith!
There is another interest for the believer beyond added confidence. It is the insight into faith that comes from the study of history. History, through the lens of archaeology or ancient writings, informs our faith with context and greater layers of understanding. Join Mark Lanier as we attempt to understand that archaeology’s greatest service to Scripture is informing our understanding by providing a contextual framework.
