Suba Cave and Isaiah
- Listers may find this report interesting:
"New Discoveries Point to "Cave of John the Baptist" as Important
Site in the Time of Isaiah Recently completed digging at Israel's
Suba Cave, an archaeological site that is possibly connected with
John the Baptist, or Jewish groups of his time has revealed features
that deepen the mystery of the site's ancient origins, according to
University of North Carolina at Charlotte archaeologist James D.
Tabor, associate director of the excavation".
and then further on:
"In the most recent excavations in March, 2006, a University of North
Carolina at Charlotte student team, supervised by Gibson and Tabor,
uncovered an outside corridor leading to what appears to be another
cave. The corridor was filled with deposits that date to the Iron Age
(within 100 years of the site's original construction) and leads
directly into the steep hillside".
The report includes some very nice photos.
