Event description

Description

What archaeology can and cannot say abot the Exodus and the conquest of the promised land.

OPEN LECTURE

The exodus and the conquest of Canaan have shaped the identity of Jews, Christians, and Muslims since ancient times, and continue to fuel the popular imagination in social media and sensationalist documentary films. However, no archaeological or extra-biblical accounts support the historicity of these narratives as far as modern archaeologists and historians can tell. We will compare the flawed logic of Bible-based archaeology with the approach of modern scholarship. If not historical accounts, then why do these stories survived the passing of time and do they retain any value for us today?

The presentation ends around 9.00. The exchange of ideas usually continues until 10, or even later, while we share complimentary snacks and beverages.

The venue is called “Centre Place” and is located at 320 Richmond St. E - Suite 101, Toronto, ON, M5A 1P9. We're on a commercial unit of "The Modern" condominium, at the NE corner of Sherbourne and Richmond. Our unit has its own entrance on Richmond, right next to McFarrens Ln. Above the main entrance there's a blue sign that says "Centre Place". (For directions lookup "Centre Place Toronto" on your phone). The venue is 100% accessible.
