Dr. Naomi Susan Schwartz Jacobs

“Five Archaeological Discoveries You Need to Know to Better Understand the Bible” is a class led by Dr. Naomi Susan Schwartz Jacobs. Topics include:

  • When and where were Israelites first mentioned among other peoples?
  • Could Joshua have fought the battle of Jericho?
  • Did some Israelites think that God had a wife?

Archaeological evidence can address these questions and many more.

Together we will look at a number of significant discoveries including the earliest non-biblical mention of the Davidic Dynasty, a seal belonging to the scribe of a famous prophet, and bovine art.

The class will be held at Har Hashem, North Building, on December 8 from 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm.  Cost is $10 for Har HaShem members and $15 for non-members.  Register at https://harhashem.wufoo.com/forms/mhswq51626okc/.
