Lights On: The Bible and Interpretation

Several years ago one of my favorite websites to frequent was Bible and Interpretation.  I appreciated the news updates as well as the articles, which came from a variety of perspectives.  For lack of funding, the site went dark.  Today the site is back with a new design and the promise of regular updates and essays. I’m delighted to see its return and am sure that it will be worth checking in on.  If you find it valuable over time, consider sending a contribution.

  1. Thanks for the website Todd! What happened to the big announcement at the Elah Fortress? I thought they were going to announce a big find?

  2. I haven’t heard anything more about the Elah Fortress. I would guess that they’re just taking the time they feel they need. This is also the holiday season in Israel.

  3. Ken – I don’t know anything about the film. I think it is unlikely that “Bethany beyond the Jordan” is located near Jericho. It is more likely further north near to the Sea of Galilee.

  4. On the 30th of October, Yosef Garfinkel will be giving a public lecture in a conference in Jerusalem and will present the excavations and the preliminary results concerning the ostracon (in Hebrew).

    Apparently there will not be any international press conference dedicated solely to the major find from last season.

    In November he will be at Boston, participating in the ASOR meeting. On the 18th he will give an hour-long talk at Harvard Semitic Museum, and on the 20th a 15-minute talk at ASOR. These two presentations will be in English.
