ABR’s Campus Ministry Appreciated
Let me say, having ABR at Ozark Christian College was definitely one of the highlights of my experience at OCC. ABR is doing a great work. I encourage more Bible Colleges to invite them to conduct seminars on their campuses. You will be blessed! Far too many of our colleges have marginalized archaeology and other hard sciences, or neglected them all together, for “practical” studies. ABR is an academic anchor, keeping us moored to the rich evidential dimensions that undergird our faith in the historically verifiable Word of God.

Appreciates Gordon Franz’s Recent Article On The Via Egnatia
“How Beautiful Are the Feet—on the Via Egnatia” by Gordon Franz is another excellent article by Gordon. His research and writings bring alive many of the Scripture texts and provide helpful background to better understand Paul and his journeys, etc. As a civil engineer by undergraduate training, I appreciate this Roman road-building achievement—built to high engineering standards, as is typical of much Roman construction. God used this Via Egnatia to advance the Gospel. Praise God!

A Question Concerning Joshua And The Amarna Letters
I have a question concerning the Philistines of Joshua. According to Jewish tradition Joshua reigned as leader of Israel 28 years after the death of Moses which if you were to calculate how long he lived after the exodus in 1447 it would lead you to 1406. This means Joshua died at the age of 110 in 1378 leaving leadership to Othniel. Now around Jos 13:3 it mentions all five Philistine city- states. The problem I have is that in the Amarna Letters the five Philistine cities were under Egyptian hegemony with a Canaanite monarch or mayor. Not a major issue...
