[XTalk] Re: Bethsaida, the evidence
I have found this book to be very helpful. I teach a class on Introductory
Archaeology: Bethsaida as a Test Case, and I use it as the textbook. It brings
much of the technical information from _Bethsaida_Vol._1_ (Arav and Freund)
down to a more understandable level, though it is still helpful and proves
copious footnotes. The index is not very helpful, but provides black and white
pictures and introduces some of the HJ information. I also picks up the 1995-
early 1998 discoveries, which Bethsaida Vol 1 does not have, but Volume 2 will
have, whenever it finally arrives (any day now).
