    The Value and Limitations of Archaeology, Part 2 (The Covenant & the Cross #7)

    in Religion

    We always like to start out with the Word of God, and today's passage of Scripture is Acts 17:11 which reads: "These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so."


    Today's quote about the Bible is from C.S. Lewis. He said: "In most parts of the Bible, everything is implicitly or explicitly introduced with ‘Thus saith the Lord.’ It is not merely a sacred book but a book so remorselessly and continuously sacred that it does not invite -- it excludes or repels -- the merely aesthetic approach. You can read it as literature only by a tour de force... It demands incessantly to be taken on its own terms: it will not continue to give literary delight very long, except to those who go to it for something quite different. I predict that it will in the future be read, as it always has been read, almost exclusively by Christians."


    Today, we are going to continue our overview of some topics that will help us as we study the Bible throughout future episodes.


    Our topic for today is titled: "The Value and Limitations of Archaeology (Part 2)” from the book, "The Promise and the Blessing" by  Michael A. Harbin.


    First, today, let us consider The Beginnings of Archaeology


    The first serious archaeological expedition was the excavation of Nineveh in 1845-1954 by A.H. Layard, only 30 years before Wellhausen’s work was published. While this discovery was important and started a trend, in some respects, archaeology did not begin gaining consideration until after the famous excavation of Troy by Heinrich Schliemann between 1870 and 1890, about the same time Wellhausen was writing.

    The Value and Limitations of Archaeology, Part 1 (The Covenant & the Cross #6)

    in Religion

    Today's quote about the Bible is from Charles Spurgeon. He said: "Some people like to read many [Bible] chapters every day. I would not dissuade them from the practice, but I would rather lay my soul a soak in half a dozen verses all day than rinse my hand in several chapters. Oh, to be bathed in a text of Scripture, and to let it be sucked up in your very soul, till it saturates your heart!"

    Our topic for today is titled: "The Value and Limitations of Archaeology (Part 1)” from the book, "The Promise and the Blessing" by  Michael A. Harbin.


    As we have noted, one of Wellhausen’s weaknesses was that he did not take archaeology into account as he developed his theories. Archaeology as a science developed in the last half of the 1800s. Since then it has made many contributions to our understanding of the Bible. The key contributions have come from various ancient libraries that have been found. As a result of these discoveries, we are better able to place biblical studies within cultural contexts. We have come to realize that biblical history fits within an overall Ancient Near East historical context, although there is some debate on how the pieces fit in.


    However, archaeology has both strengths and weaknesses. On the one hand, we cannot ignore it, but on the other hand, we must be careful not to expect too much from it. For example, archaeology does not prove the Bible. As part of our groundwork, we need to look at some of the limitations of this discipline.

    The Value and Limitations of Archaeology (Part 5) (The Covenant & the Cross #10)

    in Religion

    We always like to start out with the Word of God, and today's passage of Scripture is Romans 12:2 which reads: "And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God."


    Today's quote about the Bible is from Martin Luther. He said: "For some years now I have read through the Bible twice every year. If you picture the Bible to be a mighty tree and every word a little branch, I have shaken every one of these branches because I wanted to know what it was and what it meant."


    Today, we are going to continue our overview of some topics that will help us as we study the Bible throughout future episodes.

    Today, let’s consider The Problem of Dating.


    Non-written material is very difficult to date. In fact, archaeological dating is often publicly proclaimed with far greater confidence than it deserves. Dates are changed regularly when new information comes to the light or when new theories are developed. Some years ago, for example, an archaeologist modified by 5,000 years the suggested date of a woman’s skeleton found in Texas, and the change resulted simply from challenging and adjusting a single assumption in the interpretation of the original data. 


    Usually nonhistorical items are dated by comparison with other material of a similar sort or by various dating methods. Both have limitations. The most famous method used in archaeology is called Carbon-14 dating. This method works on organic materials because all living organisms absorb the element until they die, after which the Carbon-14 decays...

    The Value and Limitations of Archaeology (Part 3) (The Covenant & the Cross #8)

    in Religion


    (The Covenant & the Cross #8)


    We always like to start out with the Word of God, and today's passage of Scripture is Deuteronomy 11:18-19 which reads: "Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes. And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up."


    Today's quote about the Bible is from A.W. Tozer. He said: "The Word of God well understood and religiously obeyed is the shortest route to spiritual perfection. And we must not select a few favorite passages to the exclusion of others. Nothing less than a whole Bible can make a whole Christian."

    Today, let’s consider The Problem of Limited Excavation


    Very often after a city was destroyed, a new one would be built on the ruins. Without bulldozers to remove the debris, the people merely leveled the old site and built new buildings. Sometimes they used stone from the previous city. Sometimes they dug through foundations. After a period of years, the cycle would repeat itself, and gradually an artificial hill or mound would rise up.

    in Religion

    We always like to start out with the Word of God, and today's passage of Scripture is John 1:1 which reads: "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."


    Today's quote about the Bible is from Leonard Ravenhill. He said: "One of these days some simple soul will pick up the Book of God, read it, and believe it. Then the rest of us will be embarrassed."

    Today, let’s consider The Development of Writing


    All writing began as pictograms, in which the writer used pictures to convey concepts. As different cultures used different media, these pictures became more abstract. In Mesopotamia, where they used clay as a primary writing material, the pictures became a collection of wedge marks called cuneiform. In Egypt, where they mainly used papyrus, the pictures became stylized drawings that we know as hieroglyphs.


    The earliest documents were primarily economic. However, by the middle of the third millennium BC (2700-2400), a few tablets appear containing parts of some of the myths and legends of the time. Some of these are earlier versions of accounts that we have in later form from Babylon and Assyria.


    By the time of Sar-gon II (about 2300 BC), who built a large empire around the city of Akkad, we find a number of documents that relate history and mythology as well as the mundane affairs of everyday life. Over the past 150 years, several archives have been discovered in a variety of cities...

    Exploring the History of Archaeology, Genetics and the Transatlantic Slave Trade

    in History

    Join Sarah Abel for a discussion of her research in genetics and identity.


    EUROTAST is a Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN), supporting a new generation of science and humanities researchers to uncover and interpret new evidence on the history and contemporary legacies of the transatlantic slave trade. The network will be running for four years from 2012 to 2016, and will enable 13 PhD researchers in history, archaeology, social anthropology and population genetics to work collaboratively across disciplines to provide new perspectives on this history. The research will focus on three themes: Origins, Life Cycles, and Legacies, which they hope will not only lead them to further detail the slave trading system, but also help demonstrate how slavery fundamentally shaped the cultural and biological experiences of people of African descent around the world.


    Sarah Abel is a British PhD researcher, based at the International Centre for Research on Slaveries (Centre international de recherches sur les esclavages, CIRESC) in Paris, France. Abel specializes in the history of slave resistance and race relations in Latin American and Caribbean.  Overall, her research aims to look at how the rise in public access to genetic technologies and data is changing the ways in which we think about personal identity, ancestry, and 'race' in different parts of the Atlantic world today.
