The 1975 Seminary Bible Lands Tour (November 1975)

THIRTY-SIX ministers, evangelists, Bible teachers, administrators, doctors, editors, and laymen from ten countries (United States, Puerto Rico, Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Oki nawa, Germany, Britain, and Bermuda) participated in the fourth Bible Lands study tour sponsored by the SDA Theo logical Seminary. Following the tradition of the earlier tours of 1957, 1959, and 1966, the 1975 tour also combined on-site lectures by Dr. Siegfried H. Horn with guided visits to all the important sites of Biblical interest in Iran, Iraq, Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, and Israel. . .

New Books on Biblical Archeology (part 2) (August 1975)

EACH YEAR The Ministry provides its readers with a brief review of the most recent books in the field of Biblical archeology, history, and geography. Last month we began a review of significant works published during 1973 and 1974. We continue with books dealing with specific geographical areas. . .

New Books on Blibical Archeology (July 1975)

EACH YEAR The Ministry provides its readers with a brief review of the most recent books in the field of Biblical archeology, history, and geography. The last such review appeared in the March, 1974, issue but covered only those books published in 1972. This review covers significant works published in the two years since that time during 1973 and 1974. . .

Archeological News (March 1975)

THOSE who desire to keep abreast of new developments in archeology may be interested in a brief report of the annual meeting of the Society of Biblical Literature and its progeny, the American Schools of Oriental Research, both of which met in Washington, D.C., October 24-27, 1974. . .

Current Archeological Publications (March 1974)

THE MARCH, 1973, Ministry carried a similar review of books published in 1971. It was so well received at that time that the author has again provided us with brief introductions to the most significant scholarly books in the field of Biblical archeology produced since that time. Depending on a minister's individual interests, each of the books reviewed is a suitable addition to his general library. . .

The Excavations at Biblical Heshbon 1973 (January 1974)

ANDREWS UNIVERSITY sponsored the third season of excavations at Tell Hesban in Jordan from June 20 to August 15, 1973, with a staff of 57 and about 120 local workmen. The American Schools of Oriental Research (ASOR), which has done more for the progress of Biblical archeology than any other institution, and Calvin Theological Seminary, in Grand Rapids, Michigan, provided both financial support and key staff members. . .

The "High Place" in Biblical Archeology (Part 2) (September 1973)

THE Biblical evidence considered last month indicated that the high place was a cultic installation borrowed initially from the Canaanites but frequented through out the history of Israel—both in the service of Yahweh as well as in the service of the deities of the surrounding peoples. Its typical features included standing stones (massebot), memorial stones, altars for sacrifice and burning incense, cult objects symbolizing 'Asherah (the mother goddess of Canaan), along with several other types of images. . .

The "High Place" in Biblical Archeology (August 1973)

GENERATIONS of Bible students have puzzled over the unfamiliar practices associated with the "high places" mentioned in the Old Testament. What were they and where were they located? What really went on in mountaintop "groves"? What were the "asherim"? Were the "pillars" phallic symbols? Tourists to the Holy Land in our own generation are often fascinated by sites such as Petra and Gezer. . .

The End of an Era in Biblical Archeology (March 1973)

THE purpose of this essay is to provide the busy pastor and evangelist with a brief introduction to the most significant scholarly books produced in 1971 that have a bearing on our understanding of the Old Testament, with particular reference to archeology, geography, and history. In harmony with the objectives of this feature of The Ministry, its compass does not include books on Old Testament language, exegesis, and theology. Depending on a minister's individual interest, those works marked with an asterisk (*) are suitable additions to his general library. Other volumes are either more technical or more restricted in their scope and therefore of greater value to the specialist, though the minister should be aware of their availability.

Are There New Testament Documents Among the Dead Sea Scrolls? (January 1973)

IN THE spring of 1972 the scholarly world was caught by surprise when in Italy a Spanish papyrologist (with an Irish name) working on Greek papyri found in Jordan (near a Jewish sectarian settlement from the Roman period) announced that he had discovered the earliest extant manuscripts of the New Testament! Jesuit Jose O'Callaghan published his scholarly conclusions and a working hypothesis in the quarterly of Rome's Pontifical Biblical Institute. . .
