Learning about the Life of Jesus on Earth

Episode 208 - Scott Stripling

Scott Stripling joins us to discuss archaeology and how it helps us learn about our faith. He and his team are now working in Israel (specifically Shiloh) around where the tabernacle would have been during the Old Testament. Through Scott’s digs and research, he has come to know even more about Jesus and His life.

During the episode, he shares about past discoveries, his books, and the importance of knowing the Word. If archaeology, history, ministry, or Scripture interests you at all, come listen and dig into the redemptive story of God!
