This summer, 15 of our students from Herbert W. Armstrong College have been working here in Jerusalem on the excavation at the Ophel. This particular phase of digging will wrap up over the next couple weeks—and Dr. Eilat Mazar hopes to begin the third and final phase of the Ophel dig some time in early 2014. For the past twenty or thirty years, Dr. Mazar has probably done more than any other archaeologist to shape the way the world thinks about ancient Jerusalem and the man who established this city—King David. And she’s done that by letting the Bible serve as her guidebook.
People of the Western world would be stunned—dumbfounded—if they knew! The governments of the United States, Britain, Canada, Australasia, South Africa would set in motion gigantic crash programs—if they knew! They could know! But they don’t! Why?
