      Dr. Eric Cline: Biblical Conundrums

      Dr. Eric Cline: Biblical Conundrums - From the Exodus to the Ten Lost Tribes Wednesday, October 28 10:00 AM EDT A virtual series Free Every year, new archaeological evidence is discovered that is relevant to the Bible. But despite thousands of hours of efforts, archaeologists have uncovered scant — perhaps nonexistent — proof of the Exodus, the whereabouts of the Ark of the Covenant and the Ten Lost Tribes. Citing his book From Eden to Exile: Unraveling Mysteries of the Bible, Dr. Cline will discuss the Exodus story, the historical context for the Lost Tribes, where the Ark might have gone and what we can — and cannot — demand of archaeology. Dr. Eric Cline is Professor of Classics, Anthropology, and History at George Washington University. He directs the Tel Kabri Expedition and co-edits the Bulletin of the American Schools of Oriental Research. About the Series: HOT TOPICS IN BIBLICAL ARCHAEOLOGY For centuries, archaeologists have raided ancient tombs, explored caves, unearthed watercourses, sifted through rubble, measured skulls, romanced stones and reconstructed pots from tiny shards in their quest to unlock the riddles of biblical times. In this series, eight distinguished biblical archaeologists will discuss their detective work: the questions they ask; the finds they’ve uncovered; the technology they employ that adds science to spades and brushes; their interpretation of evidence; their struggle against fake news, both ancient and modern; and the tightrope they walk between belief in the Bible and evidence.
