Recent archaeological discoveries greatly illuminate and validate the Biblical record. Zola and Dr. Tom McCall journeyed to archaeological sites in Israel and Jordan and interviewed the experts. Learn about the controversial Hasmonean tunnel, the first extra-Biblical reference to Pontious Pilate, idols from the time of the Canaanites, the first archaeological proof of Roman crucifixions in Israel, plus many other ways “the stones cry out.”
Episode: “Rulers in Stone”
Many first-century finds are being unearthed at Caesarea, an ancient city on Israel’s Mediterranean coast. The first extra-biblical reference to Pontius Pilate was found there, as well as a full-size Temple replica. At Tel Dan in northern Israel, the “House of David” has been confirmed archaeologically. We also discover there an altar with metal shovels.
