On this episode, we’ll pick up where we left off last week with Egyptologist, David Rohl. During this part of the conversation, Shane talks with Dr. Rohl about various archaeological discoveries which he argues are connected to the lives Saul and David. Later in the program, the discussion shifts to the recent discovery of the Mt Ebal curse tablet, as well as to questions related to the history and chronology of events recorded in the New Testament.

In his important new book, Rethinking the Dates of the New Testament, Jonathan Bernier is currently attempting to revive Robinson’s thesis. John Wenham attempted to do this in the 90s with his book, Redating Matthew, Mark & Luke. In this article, Daniel Wallace argues that John 5:2 points to a pre-66 AD date for the Fourth Gospel, and in his commentary on John 1-7, William Weinrich makes a strong case for placing John, not only before the Jewish War, but perhaps as early as the 40s.
