April Showers of Archaeology

April Archaeology

“The role of Biblical archaeology as a hermeneutical tool is invaluable in situations in which cultural allusions and settings have in the past plainly eluded us—simply because the context belonged to another, completely ‘foreign,’ place and time.” (Introduction, Archaeological Study Bible)

Although the Bible has a timeless message, its setting is thoroughly rooted in the past. That past takes us to places, cultures, and people that are sometimes initially alien to us. Since the stories of the Bible take place in specific locations that can still be visited today, archaeology has helped us to understand the ancient context that gave birth to the biblical writings. Biblical archaeology illustrates the stories of Scripture with tangible examples of where and how people lived in the past. This week we offer you savings of up to 50% off the regular price of some of our best archaeological resources for the Accordance Bible Software Library. We hope these April Showers of Archaeology will help to illustrate your biblical teaching and preaching and make the Bible come alive for you and your hearers!

Historic Views of the Holy Land: The American Colony (8 Volumes)

Because of rapid changes in the Holy Lands in the last 150 years, older photographs often reveal features not visible today. Political changes, population explosions, and tourist "improvements" have significantly increased our distance from the ancient world. This set of Historic Views is well documented, searchable, and contains 4,300 high-resolution photographs and illustrations of biblical sites from the last 120 years, taken by resident photographers in the Holy Land from 1898 to the 1940s.
