Two full days of engaging live talks via Zoom from world-leading Bible scholars and archaeologists. This October 16 & 17, join in via computer, tablet, or phone—wherever you have internet. The ongoing pandemic prohibits us from gathering in person, as we had done annually for decades. Yet we can provide the same full weekend of information–with even greater convenience– on new finds and new analysis, advancing understanding and ongoing debates in the field of biblical archaeology.
