Biblical Archaeology Review 25:3, May/June 1999

Queries & Comments

Solid Foundation

The January/February 1999 issue of BAR was outstanding. The three main articles, dealing with David’s conquest of Jerusalem (“Light at the End of the Tunnel,” BAR 25:01), the possible discovery of David’s name on the exterior southern wall of the tenth-century B.C. Temple of Amun in Karnak, Upper Egypt (“Has David Been Found in Egypt?” BAR 25:01), and the life of pharaoh’s workers as revealed by excavations at Deir el-Medina (“Pharaoh’s Workers,” BAR 25:01), were great reminders that beneath all the free-floating hocus-pocus of literary criticism, the Bible rests on a foundation of historical truth.
