“Who Were the Ancient Israelites and Where Did They Come From?”
Leader: Bobby Williamson Room 65/66
This class will explore the origins of ancient Israel. Did Abraham exist? Were the Israelites enslaved in Egypt? Did they invade the Holy Land after wandering in the desert? We will consider biblical and archaeological evidence to offer a plausible reconstruction of the early history of the Israelites from the time of the patriarchs until the early monarchy.
