    Solomon was, according to the Bible, a King of Israel and according to the Talmud one of the 48 prophets. He was a son of David, also called Jedidiah, and is described as the third king of the United Monarchy, and the final king before the northern Kingdom of Israel and the southern Kingdom of Judah split. Following the split his patrilineal descendants ruled over Judah alone. The Hebrew Bible credits Solomon as the builder of the First Temple in Jerusalem, and portrays him as great in wisdom, wealth, and power, but ultimately as a king whose sin, including idolatry and turning away from Yahweh, leads to the kingdom being torn in two during the reign of his son Rehoboam.

      In summer 2012, Azusa Pacific University, in a joint project with Hebrew University of Jerusalem, began a 10-year survey and excavation project on Abel Beth Maacah (1 Kings 15: 20 and 2 Kings 15: 29), one of ancient Israel's northern guardian cities. Azusa Pacific Associate Professor of Biblical Studies Robert Mullins, Ph.D., will co-lead the project with Nava Panitz-Cohen and Ruhama Bonfil (Hebrew University) in an attempt to uncover the history behind this site.

        http://www.margaretfeinberg.com On the last stop on my journey while researching Scouting the Divine, I hung out with a vintner in Napa Valley. The truths that he taught me, not only about the ancient society, but about modern economy blew me away. Ancient Israel lived in a subsistence economy—farmers grew enough to live on from year to year. When Jesus uses vineyard imagery, he taps into the economic plight of the culture and our own. *** Margaret Feinberg is a popular Bible teacher and speaker at churches and leading conferences such as Catalyst, Thrive and Extraordinary Women.

                In asking the question, "Is the history the Bible presents to us a trustworthy history?", this episode examines an ancient artifact known as "The Tel Dan Stele". The question of the existence of King David and his dynasty is an element that skeptical biblical scholars have tried to use to communicate the idea that the history the Bible presents to us isn't believable. What is inscribed on this artifact, by an ancient enemy of Israel, shows beyond any doubt that both King David and his dynasty did in fact exist, just as the Bible says they did.

                  http://www.margaretfeinberg.com I'm fascinated by Jesus' first miracle. Ancient Israeli weddings lasted several days—which required time, money, and resources to contribute to the celebration. On day three of one specific nuptial that Jesus attends, they run out of wine—not only embarrassing, but devastating to the family honor. Mary, Jesus' mom, asks Jesus for help. At first reluctant, Jesus instructs the servants to draw water from the jar and take it to the headwater. Somewhere between the faucet and the palette, a miracle takes place. The common water becomes choice wine in seconds. Normally, producing choice wine takes years—Jesus goes beyond the realm of time to perform a miracle and further display that he was the Son of God.

                    Also in the period of the last few centuries before Jesus, the land of Israel was mostly divided between influences from the Ptolemaic Empire in Egypt from the South and the Seleucid Empire from the North. They both were successor states of the Empire of Alexander the Great and many Jews objected the Hellenistic influences.

                      In what many have called a boring and obscure part of the Bible sits an incredible mystery: a missing city. If the mystery turns out one way, the history that has been left to us in the Bible will show the Bible to be a fraud. If the mystery turns out the other way, the evidence will show that the history left to us in the Bible is highly accurate. The ancient city of Dibon is mentioned in Numbers 33:45 as one of the places the children of Israel camped during their journey to the land of Canaan. But excavations at the modern site of Tel Dihbon have not turned up evidence of habitation at the time of the Exodus (1200-1240BC). In fact, no substantial signs of settlement were seen until around 300 years after the time mentioned in the Old Testament. That leaves us with several questions: Did the Israelites just make up the story of camping at Dibon? Is the Old Testament unreliable in the Jewish history it chronicles? In short, is this slice of history communicated to us in the Bible truthful, or merely an ancient fraud? The lack of any significant findings at Tel Dihbon has led many scholars to completely jettison the idea that the Old Testament history of the Jewish people is reliable. But is that the end of the story? In this episode we examine the evidence surrounding this important question, and we invite to the table a witness to ancient history that has something to say on this matter. This voice is indeed an ancient voice, a trustworthy voice, and a completely scientifically verifiable voice. It is the voice of ancient Egypt herself. Please join us as we examine the trustworthiness of the Bible through the lens of an ancient city buried in the sands of time.
