Maqatir Monastery Money 2/15/2019 - by Scott Stripling DMin

A coin inscribed with “King Agrippa” was recently found by an Israeli boy on a school trip. This is the same Agrippa who had the Apostle James murdered and who jailed the Apostle Peter.

This fascinating story was recently featured in a news report filed by the Christian News Network with an interview with ABR’s Director of Excavations, Dr. Scott Stripling, and ABR’s Director, Scott Lanser.

Dr. Stripling pointed out that the Agrippa coin that was discovered was the same type of Agrippa coin discovered by ABR’s archaeologists at Khirbet el-Maqatir (the site ABR believes is the Conquest city of Ai). Dr. Stipling wrote about the Agrippa coin discovered at Maqatir in an article for ABR’s Bible and Spade magazine entitled, Maqatir Monastery Money, which we share here as our bonus article for the month of February.

From The Mailbox 3/18/2010 - by Rick Lanser MDiv

We frequently find that skeptics and atheists visit our website, read something that sets them off, and post a diatribe to the Comments area. Most of the time these remarks are never published, since they represent emotional outbursts rather than an honest wrestling with facts. But once in a while, even if we do not make the comments public, we nevertheless send a personal reply to the writer...
