80 Old Testament Characters of World History: Chronological, Historical and Archaeological Evidence By Gerard Gertoux
Paperback: List Price: $121.96 $48.78 | You Save: 60%
Prints in 3-5 business days
Despite the fact that the name of many characters mentioned in the Old Testament, like David, King of Israel, have been recently confirmed by archaeology as well as their epoch and the events in... More > which they were involved, most archaeologists continue to deny the historicity of the Bible they view as pious fiction or a mythical account. They argue that the major events in the Bible such as the victory of Abraham against Chedorlaomer, an unknown king of Elam around 2000 BCE, the victory of Moses against an unknown Pharaoh around 1500 BCE or the victory of Esther, an unknown Persian Queen, against an unknown vizier of Xerxes, never existed because they left absolutely no evidence. They also explain that according to what we know today, these events could not have occurred. These logical arguments are impressive but a precise chronological analysis based on absolute dates, coupled with a rigorous historical investigation, shows that all those major events really took place at the dates and places indicated.< Less

All of the editors of this volume have often been occupied (if not preoccupied) with ceramic artifact identification and cataloguing.We have participated in workshops and symposia in several venues... More > and have all spent time sorting, categorizing, and dating ceramics.We urgently (and selfishly) felt there was a distinct need for a volume with a Western perspective, one containing original essays in addition to particularly useful primary and secondary sources.The dilemma facing us was to find succinct reference information that would not only cover the broad spectrum of ceramic forms but also target what we were actually finding in California’s archaeological sites. Essays chosen for this volume emphasize identifying ceramics and gathering relevant information for the identification and cataloging process.< Less

Queen Esther wife of Xerxes: Chronological, Historical and Archaeological Evidence By Gerard Gertoux

Prints in 3-5 business days
Very few Bible scholars believe now in the historicity of the book of Esther. There is no chronological investigation despite the fact that chronology is the backbone of history and there has been no... More > historical research among archaeological witnesses. Worse still, to establish their chronology, historians have blind faith in the Babylonian king lists which are nevertheless false (reporting no usurpation and no co-regency). Yet it is easy to check in the tablets of Persepolis that Mordecai was an eminent royal scribe called Marduka who worked with Tatennai, the governor beyond the River, under the direction of Uštanu, the satrap of Babylon, during the years 17 to 32 of Darius. Similarly, the narrative of Herodotus regarding Amestris (a name meaning ‘vigorous woman’ in Old Persian), Xerxes' unique wife and only queen known in Persia, corresponds in many ways to Esther (‘star’ in Old Persian”) despite the unfavourable and biased description of the Persian queen.< Less
