Martin Klingbeil, professor of Biblical Studies and Archaeology at Southern Adventist University and co-director of The Fourth Expedition to Lachish, will present a lecture titled “Excavating War and Destruction in Ancient Judah” on Oct. 6 at 7 p.m. in Lynn Wood Hall Chapel on Southern’s campus.

"Tel Lachish, a critically important city in the Kingdom of Judah, second only to Jerusalem, is mentioned 24 times in the Old Testament. Two of these include the separate destructions of the city in 701 B.C.
by Sennacherib, king of Assyria, and again in 586 B.C. by Nebuchadnezzar II, king of Babylon. The overarching research objectives for the 2014 season were to reach levels III and IV, the respective destruction layers by these kings, before the end of a six-week excavation. Although political instability in Israel cut this endeavor short, the research objectives were more than met in half of a field season—testifying to the richness of this ancient Israelite city," officials said.
 
The Fourth Expedition to Lachish is a joint expedition of The Hebrew University of Jerusalem and Southern Adventist University, co-directed by Yosef Garfikel, Michael Hasel, and Martin Klingbeil. For more information, visit southern.edu/lachish.
