Archeology and the Gospels

Along the lines of our most recent monthly meeting, here is a fascinating little article showing some archeological discoveries that shed light on life in the time and place of Christ. In some cases the discoveries directly confirm key points of the Biblical text and in other cases they merely highlight some tangential issues that help us understand the Biblical text (i.e. what Jesus may have meant when he rhetorically asked if John the Baptist was a reed in the wind). All in all a good read with lots of reference material.

The author has a few other articles along this theme; you can find all his articles (including political commentary and articles on other issues as well) here.
