In my haste to post the Weekend Roundup this morning, I neglected a few things I had intended to mention.
Ferrell Jenkins is back in Israel on a study and photographic tour. He has already posted some good photos from Samaria, Shechem, Qeiyafa, and Jerusalem.
This month you can view the Ezra and Nehemiah commentary for free from the Zondervan Illustrated Bible Backgrounds Commentary.
National Geographic has just released The Letter and the Scroll: What Archaeology Tells Us About the Bible. I’m pleased to have a number of photos in the book, but I haven’t yet seen it. A friend
suggests that its approach is rather mainstream, trying not “to push too many buttons.” He is very impressed with the photographs and illustrations and thinks they will be helpful in teaching.
