Abel Beth Maacah: Uncovering the Secrets of a Biblical City
Abel Beth Maacah is a city of on the northern border of present-day Israel that the Hebrew Bible mentions several times. Though called “a city and a mother in Israel,” other verses suggest that the population was Aramean or perhaps another ethnic group (2 Sam 10:6-8; 1 Chron 19:6; Josh 13:11). The primary aim of this lecture will be to explore the intriguing yet elusive relationship between historical memory as recorded in the Bible and finds on the ground.
