Free on Kindle today: The Apostle: The Life of Paul, by John Pollock. The ASOR Blog has posted the latest Archaeology Roundup. Three new volumes of the City of David final excavation reports have been published. If you have not had the chance to visit Hebron, you should take the illustrated tour today with Wayne Stiles. (Another version with smaller images is published at the Jerusalem Post.) Is skinny-dipping in the Sea of Galilee sacrilegious? The Washington Post gives my answer to the question. WiFi access is important enough to visitors in Israel that one biblical village has equipped their donkeys with WiFi routers. HT: Charles Savelle Windsurfer on Sea of Galilee (photo source)

Todd – I liked your input on the article on skinny dipping on the Sea of Galilee.
I was waiting for you to point out that ancient fishermen fished in the buff. Peter would have spent a lot of time skinny dipping in the Sea of Galilee (!)
Thanks, Lois. I talked with the reporter about this matter, though I am of the opinion that Peter wasn't completely nude but would have been wearing some undergarment.
In any case, how was the skiing? A bit rough perhaps?
The skiing was good. I've had more than one chance. I've not yet tried barefooting.
