Weekend Roundup

Haaretz has a lengthy profile of Ronny Reich and his 15-year excavation of the City of David. The article is partly based on Reich’s book and deals with the archaeological highlights and the political controversies. Walk the Land: A Journey on Foot through Israel is available as a free Kindle ebook for a limited time. A FoxNews story about the Chinese Christian version of the Noah’s Ark discovery interviews Randall Price and John Morris. The Oklahoma exhibit with the seals of Jeremiah’s captors is previewed in a four-minute video. Joe Yudin takes his readers on a tour of the City of David. He writes that one may walk underground to the Western Wall, suggesting that the tunnel collapse from late December has been cleared and the passage re-opened. An Asclepium has been discovered in central Greece. Christianbook.com’s Fabulous Friday sale includes a couple of great deals: Zondervan Atlas of the Bible, by Carl Rasmussen, and the audio NKJV Word of Promise New Testament, each for $14.99 for the weekend.
