Bible and archaeology news
Prof. Aren Maeir is offering a MOOC (massive open online course) titled “Biblical Archaeology: The Archaeology of Ancient Israel and Judah” online on the EdX platform. The course will be the equivalent of a semester-long course on the archaeology of Iron Age Israel and Judah. The course is open to all—and for a fee, one can receive a certificate from EdX or academic credit from Bar-Ilan University. Registration is now open—click here to learn more and register!
