Why We Dig: The Importance of Biblical Archaeology

"Archaeology reminds us of the 'earthiness' of the biblical accounts. As a field archaeologist at the site of Bethsaida, next to the Sea of Galilee, I oversaw the excavation area of the New Testament/Roman domestic quarter. Not only did we uncover some of the houses from that time, but we found lots of fishing gear, such as hooks and weights, inside the houses." - TGC
