The battle of Jericho is one of the most enduring biblical stores. The description of the “walls falling down” is among its most well-known accounts. Yet, the most famous excavation of this ancient site, carried out in the 1950’s under the direction of Kathleen Kenyon, claims that there wasn’t even a city at Jericho–much less city walls–at the time when Joshua supposedly conquered it.
What are the implications of the battle of Jericho being disproven? Wouldn’t the Bible be demonstrtated untrustworthy? Couldn’t it be argued that the Jewish people have no more right to the land of Israel than anyone else? The implications really are staggering!
For more than fifty years, scholars have built a wall of doubt against the historical accuracy of the Bible using Jericho as one of its cornerstones. It’s time to face thsoe challenges head on! It’s time to determine whether or not the conclusions of modern scholarship stand in light of the evidence or if those arguments don’t, in fact, collapse — like Jericho’s walls.
Join us, as we return to the site of one of history’s most important battles in order to explore the crucial question relating to Joshua’s conquest: Did the walls of Jericho really come tumbling down?
“Be strong and courageous, because you will lead these people
to inherit the land I swore to their forefathers to give them.” Joshua 1:6
“This evening I used your Jericho Unearthed DVD in my Old Testament studies class this evening and the response was overwhelmingly positive.
Entertainingly educational and intellectually fair and honest with some of the highest production values we have ever seen, the video is a brilliant archeological defense of the Biblical story of the Battle of Jericho.
We are VERY impressed. We will be looking toward other releases along these archeological apologetic lines.
Keep up the great work.“
