“The Second Battle of Jericho” Research Project
An important field of Biblical studies is the Israelite Conquest of Canaan. Dr. Bryant Wood, Director of Research for Associates for Biblical Research, has reexamined and reevaluated the excavated evidence from Jericho to better correlate that data with the Biblical story of Joshua's conquest as contained in the inspired Scriptures of the Old Testament (Joshua 6).
“The Third Battle for Ai - The Bethel / Ai Project”
Central to the Associates for Biblical Research's work on the Israelite Conquest of Canaan is the Bethel/Ai Project. A major scholarly battle has developed over the identification of the Biblical city of Bethel, an important city in Old testament times, and Ai, the second city captured by the Israelites after they crossed the Jordan River. Dr. David Livingston, founder and former director of the Associates for Biblical Research, has pioneered research in this area. The Bethel / Ai Project provides sponsorship, oversight and publication of research and field work related to the ongoing effort to identify the location of the Biblical cities of Bethel and Ai.
The Mount Sinai Research Project
Surprisingly, the location of Mt. Sinai, one of the most significant places in the Bible, is not known with any degree of certainty. Over the years some two dozen sites have been proposed, none of which meets the Biblical requirements. Dr. Bryant Wood and Gary Byers are heading up research to re-evaluate the Biblical and historical evidence in order to identify the location of one of the most important mountains in the world.
