Is It Time to Throw Away Your Bible? The Walls of Jericho Part Three 9/18/2014 - by ABR Staff

Temple Mount Flyover 7/21/2014 - by Joel Kramer

Lately my son, Barry, and I have been experimenting with shooting aerial video from a remote control helicopter. The Old City of Jerusalem is a no fly zone. However, we received special permission to video the Jerusalem excavation where I am a staff member. This morning we had one take at flying over the Old City in the early light of dawn. We had a great challenge, though; we couldn't see what the camera saw. We were shooting blind due to a monitor malfunction. As the Bible says, sometimes we have to be blind to truly see.

Is It Time to Throw Away Your Bible? The Exodus from Egypt 6/30/2014 - by ABR Staff

The Potter 6/4/2014 - by Joel Kramer

The months since our return to Israel have been very full. I’ve been blessed to show around several wonderful church groups that have visited. I’ve completed more classes for my Masters in Archaeology. I’ve scouted various new biblical sites. I’ve had adventures that come with living in a foreign country. In it all, I’m afraid the tyranny of the urgent has crowded out some other important areas, and I apologize for the long silence here on the blog! One of my goals for Sourceflix is to show you visuals of what the Bible is talking about. This opportunity presented itself to me again one day while I was driving through the city of Hebron. I spotted a potter sitting at his wheel and stopped to see his work. Watching his hands carefully molding the clay, his foot precisely controlling the speed of his turning wheel, his concentration in applying just the right amount of pressure to reshape the clay and his delighted satisfaction as his object took the shape he desired, I saw with a new clarity my life in God’s hand. He is the Potter, I am the clay. And what is the outcome of yielding myself to His care, His control, His concentration, His pressure? It is His delighted satisfaction! May you be blessed as you yield to the Potter, your Master Creator.

Join ABR on the Dig in Israel 1/30/2012 - by Henry B. Smith Jr. MA

The location of Joshua's Ai has been a matter of mystery and controversy since the beginnings of archaeological research in Israel. Scholars have concluded that the location of Joshua’s Ai is at et-Tell. They have also used this conclusion to discredit the Biblical account of Joshua 7-8 because there is no evidence of occupation at et-Tell during the time of Joshua. We believe they are incorrect, not the Bible.

The Crags of the Wild Goats 5/11/2011 - by Joel Kramer

One of the powerful realities of the Bible is that it accurately describes the ancient world — it’s people, its places, its animals. While not all those descriptions of ancient times are still observable today — some are. En Gedi, in the Judean Wilderness, is one of those places. You’ll see Ibex on the cliffs of En Gedi, just as David would have seen them. As you watch, maybe you can imagine one of the pictures the Psalmist had in mind when he penned Psalm 104. I hope you enjoy!
