30    The Christian Flight to Pella:True or Tale?
Stephen Bourke
According to fourth-century church historian Eusebius, on the eve
of Jerusalem’s destruction  by the Romans in 70 A.D., Jesus’ followers miraculously escaped the city and fled to Pella of the Decapolis in Jordan. After decades of excavation, have archaeologists been able to sift through more than 8,000 years of occupation history to find evidence of these
early Christian refugees?

40    Wooden Beams from Herod’s Temple Mount:Do They Still Exist?
Peretz Reuven
As a result of earthquakes, Al-Aqsa Mosque on Jerusalem’s Temple Mount had to be dismantled and reconstructed in the 1930s and 1940s. Massive Cedar of Lebanon and cypress beams were reused, and others were simply removed. Some of these beams are significantly older than the mosque itself. Were they once part of Herod’s Temple Mount architecture?

49    Cedars of lebanon:Exploring the Roots
Nili liphschitz
David’s Palace and Solomon’s Temple-two of the most famous structures in the Bible-were both built with Cedars of Lebanon (Cedrus libanz) provided by the Phoenician king Hiram of Tyre. Dendroarchaeology, the archaeology of trees and wood, is now able to tell us why Cedrus libani was so treasured and how widely used it was in antiquity.

58    “The Lord Is One”: How Its Meaning Changed
Armin lange and Esther Eshel
A l-inch rectangular gold leaf inscribed with the Shema’ Yisrael (“Hear
0 Israel”) served as a protective amulet for a Jewish baby’s body in the Roman era. The declaration that “The Lord is One” in this incantation reveals that the Israelite deity Yahweh was more than just the sole God of the Jews, he was the only God.

4    DAVID’S JERUSALEM: A Sense of Place
Daniel D. Pioske

Sharp disagreements over the architectural remains and political status of early tenth-century B.C.E.  Jerusa­ lem have overwhelmed a significant point of consensus within  these  wider debates:  the highland site was an inhabited settlement  at the turn of the first millennium B.C.E. The intent  of this investigation is to explore the history of this  early tenth  century B.C.E.  location by focusing on the everyday life that would have occurred within it. Thus, rather than speculating  on Jerusalem’s participation and  role in broader regional develop­ ments during  late Iron I/early Iron IIA transition, my historical  interest  here will be more narrowly concen­ trated on the place of Jerusalem itself: the landscape of the site, its communal spaces, the lifeways it provided its residents. In viewing the location  through this his­ torical lens,  the argument of this  article  will be that an often overlooked  but vital feature of the history  of David’s Jerusalem was its agrarian society and setting.

16 THE LILY AND THE ROSE:
A Review of Some Hasmonean Coin Types
David  M. Jacobson

The previously accepted wisdom among scholars of ancient Jewish numismatics is that the flower depicted on coins of the Hasmonaean rulers  John Hyrcanus I (135-104 B.C.E.)  and  Alexander Jannaeus (103-76 B.C.E.) is invariably a lily. It is now appreciated that most of these coin types are, in fact, based on the Rho­dian rose symbol. This image  was familiar in Judea through the Hasmonaean  period on Rhodian coins and imported wine amphorae  that had circulated there for several decades. The implications of this relationship are discussed against  the background of concurrent political and economic developments.

28     SPYING ON THE PAST:
Declassified Intelligence Satellite Photographs and Near Eastern Landscapes
Jason Ur

While attempting to document Soviet nuclear capaci­ties, the first generation  of American intelligence satel­ lites also captured  vivid images of archaeological sites and landscapes across the Near East. Since the declas­ sification of these satellite photographs,  archaeologists have eagerly exploited them to investigate early cities, trackways, and irrigation  systems. In many cases, forty years of development and  modernization has dam­ aged or destroyed  these sites and features, leaving the satellite photographs as the best surviving record.  This paper reviews case studies from Syria, Iraq, and Iran.

38    REASSESSING ANTHROPO­ MORPHIC METAL FIGURINES OF ALACAHÖYÜK, ANATOLIA
Onsal Yalpn and H. Goniil Yalpn

The analyses of six metal figurines of the royal tombs from Alacahoyiik show that two of these objects were produced from silver, while the rest were cast in bronze. Beyond  this,  the figurines reveal typological differ­ ences. Three schematic figurines from the tombs A 1 and L provide almost all the features of the idols. Three fur­ ther figurines from tomb H are depicted plastically in a naturalistic  manner. These figurines from Alacahöyük reveal a local style. Similar figurines  are known  from other Early Bronze Age settlements in Anatolia.
