The Fran Lefkowitz Biblical Archaeology Series with Dr. Ron Tappy
A Weekly, 7-Week Course Beginning Sunday, April 7. Last Class Takes Place Sunday, May 19
12:30 p.m. - Light Lunch Served
1 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. - Class Takes Place in Chapel
Join Dr. Ron Tappy of the Pittsburgh Theological Seminary for an exciting exploration of the world of Biblical Archaeology, complete with sessions that confirm the reality of well-known biblical narratives that have shaped history. Delve into topics surrounding the Hebrew Bible, the life and times of Amos the Prophet, the Battle of Lachish and the Theology of Jerusalem, and more. In addition, Dr. Tappy will present a series of major inscriptions related to Israel, but were written by scribes and rulers in multiple powers outside of Israel. The historical information recorded in the inscriptions you will study with Dr. Tappy provide an in-depth look at Israel’s history throughout the period of the Hebrew judges and kings, giving you the chance to study archaeological proof of biblical stories cherished in Judaism.
This course is presented in blessed memory of Fran Lefkowitz, whose passion for Biblical Archaeology inspired the education of others during her life. We continue this course in her honor.
