James Morgan of the Canadian Lutheran posted an article online last Friday titled: Ancient artifacts meet new technology in online course.
The "Archaeology and Jesus" course takes place at the seminary, and online, on Tuesday evenings, and is still open to new registrations.
“Archaeology enthusiast and seminary professor Dr. Stephen Chambers teaches the course and is extremely pleased with the enrolment. Of the 50 people registered, 18 attend on-site in Edmonton, ten individuals take part online (including two in Ontario), and groups from congregations gather in Saskatoon,Campbell River B.C., and Rocky Mountain House, Alberta.”
“Fitting all the material into two-hour sessions is not easy, but Dr. Chambers covered five of his Top 10 topics of biblical archaeology in the first session. Students saw photos and learned about the ossuaries (burial chests) of James and Caiphas; the Pilate inscription; Yehohanan the crucified man; and the Herodian cities of Caesarea Martima and Jerusalem.”
Even though the first session has already taken place, it is not too late to register. (The first session is recorded so you can catch up!) Anyone can take part from any location. The cost is $40, but the registration fee is waived for pastors, church workers, and individuals who participate as a group at one site.
