Visit and lecture by Prof. Marc Brettler

Today, at the very beginning of the 2nd week, we had a visit from Prof. Marc Brettler, the well-known biblical scholar from Duke University. Marc, who is a good friend, visited the site and then presented an excellent lecture to the team, dealing with the complex textual analysis of the David and Goliath story in I Samuel 17 (and parallels texts).

As usual, Marc’s talk was excellent!

Here is Marc at the site and with Jeff at the Kibbutz.
