Domesticated Pigs, City Walls and the Real Reason Jerusalem Wasn’t Conquered by Sennacherib
Archaeologists in Jerusalem have discovered remains of the eastern wall of the ancient city from 2,700 years ago. From the same period, they have also uncovered remains of a domesticated pig, ready to be carved up for a non-kosher meal.
In today’s program, archaeologist Brent Nagtegaal discusses the parallels between these Jerusalem discoveries and the Bible. He also speaks about his recent experience volunteering on the excavation of Khirbet el-Ra’i.
