Across the Bridge – Fall 2016

November 28, 2016 | Written by Matt Carter

Across the Bridge features expanded coverage of stories from the Fall 2016 issue of The Bridge.

The Spring of Gihon

Dr. Huffard used the Spring of Gihon as a metaphor in his article. Here is a video tour of Hezekiah’s Tunnel, the Pool of Siloam, and the Spring of Gihon.


New Testament in the New World

Dr. Richard Oster and Bob Turner led a tour of Boston, Philadelphia, and New York, visiting museums featuring antiquities from the New Testament World. Here are a few pictures from the trip.

Dr. Oster lectures in New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art about meanads, mythological figures who appear in Euripides's The Bacchae, who inform current conversations about the status of women in antiquity.
