Learn about CLS's involvement in ongoing archaeological project at Hippos, Israel: next Tuesday, Nov. 8th, from 7:00-9:00 pm.
Twenty people have taken part in the Hippos project through CLS since 2006. Dr. Chambers plans to lead another group in July 2012. Participants work on the dig during the week, and tour other places of biblical and archaeological interest on the weekends.
Hippos is a Roman city on the east shore of the Sea of Galilee, inhabited between the 2nd century BC and the 8th century AD. Within the city-wide excavation project, the seminary’s volunteers are part of a larger team from Concordia University (St. Paul, Minnesota) which is focusing on a church-complex. It contains a worship area, a pilgrimage site, the tombs of more than a dozen people, and a luxurious mansion.
This two-hour illustrated talk is a special follow-up to the Quest course, “Let the Stones Speak,” which just ended. Roughly 50 people took part in each of the four sessions, about 20 of them in a seminary classroom and about 30 of them on-line. While Dr. Steve Chambers led the course, Jeff Nachtigall provided technical support, and Ellen Raaflaub brought each night’s snack!
There is no cost to Tuesday night’s presentation, which takes place in the seminary’s distance-education classroom. You are welcome to attend in person, or online. If you have a computer with a decent quality internet connection, capable of using Skype or watching YouTube videos, you are ready to participate.
