This morning Moody Bible Institute's Dr. Jim Coakley joins us for a time of Bible Q&A.
Plus, an ancient fortress that is believed to be manned by one of King David's allies has been discovered by Israeli archeologists in the Golan Heights, where construction of a new neighborhood was slated to begin. The discovery was made by The Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA), who believe that the fort was owned by the ancient kingdom of Geshur. Our good friend Professor Tom Meyer, known world-wide as "The Bible Memory Man" is also an expert in biblical archeology. We get his take on the significance of this find and talk about some other recent discoveries too.
Dr. Jim Coakley has taught at Moody Bible Institute, specializing in Old Testament and Biblical Languages, since 1999. Prior to Moody he was involved in pastoral ministry for thirteen years. He has traveled to Israel multiple times as a tour leader and has also toured throughout Turkey.
