30 Where Is Mount Sinai? By Hershel Shanks

[Numerous candidates for Mt. Sinai were debated at a recent international colloquium of scholars in Israel, focusing especially on Har Karkom in Israel’s Negev desert and-surprisingly-on a Midianite site in Saudi Arabia. No one defended the traditional site in the southern Sinai Peninsula.]

42 Archaeology Confirms 50 Real People in the Bible By Lawrence Mykytiuk

52 Modi’in: Hometown of the Maccabees by Shlomit Weksler-Bdolah and Alexander Onn

[Modi’in is fan1ous as the hometown of the Maccabees, who successfully led a Jewish revolt when the Hellenistic king Antiochus N Epiphanes banned circumcision and Sabbath observance and desecrated the Temple. Have excavations within the modern Israeli city of Modi’in uncovered the Jewish village that the Maccabees called home?]

60 With & Without Straw: How Israelite Slaves Made Bricks by Robert Littman, Marta Lorenzon and Jay Silverstein

[Was it possible for Israelite slaves to meet their mudbrick quota after Pharaoh stopped providing the straw and they were forced to gather it on their own? Modern mudbrick-making at Tell Timai in the Nile
Delta sheds new light on the Biblical account. Using ancient techniques, archaeologists manufactured mudbricks and used them to conserve ancient mudbrick walls.]
