Product description

The links between archaeology and the Bible have fascinated generation of archaeologists and biblical scholars who seek evidence to support events described in the Bible. The British Museum's collections include a wealth of incised objects, scripts, and pictorial reliefs that provide just such evidence. For this important book, the author has selected seventy-two such "documents," mainly from Western Asia, with some examples included from Greece, Egypt, and Asia Minor, dating from the period of the Patriarchs to New Testament times (c. 2000 CE to 100 AD). The transliterates and translates the ancient texts, which include documents in Cuneiform, Aramaic, and Hebrew, and discussed the contribution they make to our knowledge of the culture and history of Biblical times. THE BIBLE IN THE BRITISH MUSEUM will serve as a valuable sourcebook for all students of the Bible and of the ancient Near East.
