The new permanent exhibition of archaeology at the Israel Museum, The Samuel and Saidye Bronfman Archeology Wing, is dedicated to the many civilizations that have left their imprint on the Land. It takes visitors on a rich journey along the path of history, from Prehistoric times to the Ottoman Period. The majority of the artifacts on display come from controlled archaeological excavations, and are on extended loan from the Israel Antiquities Authority. These objects are complemented by artifacts in the Museum's holdings, gifted by generous private collectors and donors. This catalogue provides a small taste of the exhibition's rich and varied treasures.

Jesus As Mirrored In John

James H. Charlesworth begins from a burgeoning point of scholarly consensus: More and more scholars are coming to recognize that the Fourth Gospel is more historically complex than previously thought. Charlesworth outlines two historical horizons within John. On the one hand, there is the Jewish background to the text (complete with the evangelist's knowledge of Palestinian geography and Jewish customs) which Charlesworth perceives as offering a window into pre-70 Palestinian Judaism. On the other hand, the gospel also reflects a post-70 world in which non-believing Jews, with more unity, begin to part definitely with those who identified Jesus as the Messiah. Split into four sections, this volume first examines the origins of the Fourth Gospel, its evolution in several editions, and its setting in Judea and Galilee. Charlesworth then looks specifically at the figure of Jesus and issues of history. He proceeds to consider this Gospel alongside earlier and contemporaneous Jewish literature, most notably the Dead Sea Scrolls. Finally, the volume engages with John's symbolism and language, looking closely at key aspects in which John differs from the Synoptic Gospels, and raising such provocative questions as whether or not it is possible that Jesus married Mary Magdalene. From one of the New Testament's most noted scholars, this book allows deeper understanding of the ways in which the Gospel of John is a vital resource for understanding both the origin of Christianity and Jesus' position in history.

Jerusalem ist eine Stadt, mit der niemand zu Rande kommt. Setzt man einen Fuß auf ihren Boden, verspürt man die Vibrationen zahlloser heroischer Anfänge und dramatischer Tode. Sucht man nach ihrer Religion, wird man von ihren monotheistischen Gottheiten geradezu angefallen. Fragt man nach ihrer Geschichte, muss man sich nicht nur durch mehrere Jahrtausende durcharbeiten, sondern trifft diese Jahrtausende mit ihren religiösen Ansprüchen auch heute noch unvermindert an. Jerusalem zu beschreiben endet stets im Fragment; so auch dieses Buch, trotz seines Umfangs. Zuviel ist um jeden Stein gekämpft worden, zu viel menschliche Energie wurde in jeden Quadratmeter eingebracht, zu verschiedene Kräfte erheben am engen Platz ihre Ansprüche, als dass ein Buch dies widerspiegeln könnte. Trotzdem wird dies hier gewagt, in Auswahl zwar, aber doch im Detail. Dazu greift Max Küchler auf seine eigenen Erfahrungen als Reisender, Archäologe und Theologe zurück, wertet historische und theologische Texte aus, Analysen und Berichte von Archäologen und Kunsthistorikern, Pläne von Kartographen und Bilder von Photographen und Künstlern. In diese 2. Auflage sind die archäologischen Entdeckungen seit 2007 eingearbeitet. Die völlig überarbeitete Darstellung bietet die Materialien und Argumentationen der Erstauflage komprimiert und ist auf den aktuellen Forschungsstand gebracht. Küchler weckt Begeisterung für Jerusalem und lässt Glanz und Schönheit der Stadt selbst im Lichte ihrer Brüchigkeit erstrahlen.

Figurines In Achaemenid Period Yehud

Were there figurines in Yehud during the Achaemenid period, and in particular in Jerusalem? A positive answer to this question disproves the general consensus about the absence of figurines in Yehud, which is built on the assumption that the figurines excavated in Judah/Yehud are chronologically indicative for Iron Age II in this area (aside from a few typological exceptions). Ephraim Stern and others have taken this alleged absence of figurines as indicative of Jewish monotheism's rise. Izaak J. de Hulster refutes this `no figurines -> monotheism' paradigm by detailed study of the figurines from Yigal Shiloh's excavation in the 'City of David' (especially their contexts in Stratum 9), providing ample evidence for the presence of figurines in post-587/586 Jerusalem. The author further reflects on the paradigm's premises in archaeology, history, the history of religion, theology, and biblical studies, and particularly in coroplastics (figurine studies).

Theology History And Archaeology In The Chronicler S Account Of Hezekiah

In a doctoral dissertation completed in 1995 (no institution noted), Vaughn takes the treatment of Hezekiah in 2 Chronicles 29-32 as an opportunity to test the relationship between extra-biblical historical data and an interpretation of Chronicles. He combines archaeological and epigraphic evidence with a focused reading of the verses to argue that traditions or remembrances that were historically accurate were used to construct the ideological message for the post-exile community.

Bisher diente biblische Archäologie zum Beweis der Heiligen Schrift. Die beiden international renommierten Archäologen drehen den Spieß um und lassen die Ausgrabungen eine eigene Sprache sprechen. Ihr dramatisch neues, archäologisch fundiertes Bild von der Geschichte Israels zwingt zum Umdenken. Der Auszug aus Ägypten, die Einnahme Kanaans, das Großreich unter König David und der Tempelbau in Jerusalem unter König Salomon galten lange auch bei den kritischsten Wissenschaftlern als gesichert. Neueste Ausgrabungen, bisher nur Experten bekannt, zeigen ein ganz anderes Bild: " Den Auszug aus Ägypten gab es ebensowenig wie eine "Landnahme". " Jerusalem unter David und Salomon war ein größeres Dorf sicher ohne zentralen Tempel und großen Palast. " Der Monotheismus hat sich viel später entwickelt als bisher angenommen & Das klar und anschaulich geschriebene Buch ist in zwölf Kapitel gegliedert: Auf die Nacherzählung der biblischen Geschichte folgt jeweils die archäologische Spurensuche. Im nächsten Schritt rekonstruieren die Autoren (Israel Finkelstein ist der Direktor des israelischen Instituts Tel Aviv) den tatsächlichen historischen Ablauf, um abschließend zu fragen, wann und warum die Geschichte aufgeschrieben wurde.

Reveals the course of archaeological adventures and insights that resulted in The Earth Chronicles series • Explores links between the Old world and the New in search of evidence of extraterrestrial gods in the artifacts and murals of ancient civilizations • Reveals archaeological cover-ups concerning Olmec origins in Mexico and ancient UFO artifacts in Turkey In this autobiographical book, the internationally acclaimed author Zecharia Sitchin reveals the foundational research and the adventurous expeditions that resulted in his writing the bestselling The Earth Chronicles series. Ranging from Mayan temples in Mexico to hidden artifacts in Istanbul, Turkey, from biblical tunnels in Jerusalem to the mysteries of Mt. Sinai, from the abode of a Sumerian goddess to Greek islands, the Expeditions’ destinations and amazing discoveries unmasked established fallacies, detected the fate of mysterious artifacts, and revealed ancient connections to modern space facilities. For the first time, Sitchin shares with the reader not only his encompassing knowledge of antiquity and his field experiences, but also the concrete evidence for his conclusions that ancient myths were recollections of factual events, that the gods of ancient peoples were visitors to Earth from another planet, and that we are not alone in our own solar system. Accompanied by photographs from his personal archive, here is Sitchin’s own story and his inner feelings about the cord that binds him to his ancestral past.
