(November 2023)



You are invited to our annual "Open House" at the Museum on Saturday, December 2nd, from 1 PM - 3 PM. We will have our miniature Bethlehem Village model depicting life at the time of the birth of Christ on display. This is a favorite for many each year.

I will be offering a brief lecture on the "Archaeology of Christmas" at 2 PM.

The museum will be open before and after the lecture and there will be refreshments and snacks provided for all who attend. You may stay as long as you like at the museum.



On January 20th, 2024, Dr. Scott Stripling will be our guest lecturer at the Museum. Dr. Stripling is the Director of the dig site at Biblical Shiloh. This was the location of the Tabernacle during the time of Samuel and recent excavations have revealed amazing information and details concerning the site. Dr. Stripling will be sharing the latest information with us. Also, he has recently led the sifting project at Mt. Ebal where one of the most important finds in archaeological history was found. The postage stamp sized folded lead tablet with writing on the interior from the Late Bronze Age has helped prove that Moses authoring the Pentateuch was not just possible, but probable.

A free pizza lunch will be provided for all at this event. Please let me know if you plan to attend so we will know how many to prepare for. A schedule for both events is below:
