Digging for Truth TV

Join us for part one of a three part virtual round table discussion about the location of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem! Archaeologist Dr. Scott Stripling joins us from Katy, Texas.

Some evangelicals are claiming the present-day Temple Mount is not where the Temple was located in the days of Solomon and Herod. We’ll be responding to these dubious claims by carefully evaluating the biblical, historical, and archaeological evidence.

Hosts Scott Lanser and Henry Smith will be continuing their discussion on a pastoral approach in dealing with conflict and differences of opinion. What does the Bible say about conflict? How do we discern issues of essential biblical truth verses those subjects of secondary importance? And lastly, how are we to conduct ourselves among non-believers and with believers that we disagree with?

On these next two episodes of Digging for Truth, we'll be tackling on thorny problem of conflicts and disagreements among believers in Jesus Christ. Our approach will be pastoral as we seek to encourage our viewers to be faithful to the Bible, to distinguish essential biblical doctrine from non-essential and secondary subjects, and to respond to disagreements in a way that follows the principles God has given us in His Word. Are we to respond to believers and non-believers differently? Is scholarly debate and conflict unique? How can we more faithfully honor the Lord in our life and conduct when conflicts arrive? These are just some of the questions we will confronting in this two-part episode of Digging for Truth dedicated to this important topic.

To say that western society is destroying itself from within might very well be the understatement of the century. Our public educational institutions have played a significant role in the spiritual, moral, and intellectual demise of western culture. Public education is now steeped in a worldview that is deeply antagonistic towards the Creator, His moral law, and the Gospel of Christ. Christian parents seriously committed to the Gospel are deeply concerned about the impact these institutions are having on their children. Is there a better way to educate these precious ones who have been given to us by God? Mr. John Mark Niehls of Coventry Christian Schools in Pottstown, PA joins us to talk about a Gospel-centered and time tested alternative: Classical Christian Education.

Bryan Windle will be on the program to talk about Pharaoh Shishak of Egypt. In I Kings 14, the biblical text claims that Shishak attacked the city of Jerusalem, and plundered the Temple. Do we have archaeological evidence about this Pharaoh and can we trust what the Bible says about this king? Could there be evidence for the name of David in an Egyptian inscription?

Bryan Windle joins us from Canada to apply archaeology to the life story of one of the most powerful kings in antiquity: King Nebuchadnezzar. Nebuchadnezzar is mentioned over 80 times by name in Scripture in the books of 2 Kings, 1 & 2 Chronicles, Ezra, Nehemiah, Esther, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and of course, he figures prominently in the book of Daniel.

Even though he is mentioned by name over 1000 times in the Bible, some skeptics and minimalist scholars claim that King David never existed, or, if he did exist, he had just a few hundred followers and controlled only a small territory. Archaeologist Dr. Michael Hasel joins us to talk about the fortified city of Khirbet Qeiyafa from the time of David. Dr. Hasel was one of the Directors of the Qeiyafa excavations from 2007 to 2013.

Dr. Boyd Seevers will be joining us to talk about the use of slingstones in the biblical world. We’ll be talking about depictions of slinging on coins and reliefs, and we’ll also discuss the deadly accuracy and effectiveness of ancient slingers. How did a shepherd boy named David take down the invincible Philistine warrior Goliath? Join us to find out!
