What was Jerusalem like between the Old and New Testaments? Using archaeology, the Bible, ancient Jewish scriptures that did not make it into the Bible, and other texts this class will explore Jerusalem from the time of the return from the Babylonian Exile, to the time of Hellenistic rulers, to the Hasmonean Kingdom of Israel, and finally to Roman Palestine and the destruction of the Second Temple. Come see the palace outside of Jerusalem (which Dr. Schulte helped excavate) and other important sites.
Dr. Lucas Schulte is a university professor specializing in the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament. He has excavated in Israel at Ramat Rahel and Tell Akko. Dr. Schulte is also the author of the book, My Shepherd, though You Do Not Know Me: The Persian Royal Propaganda Model in the Nehemiah Memoir.
