The Bible and Archeology”
7pm – Cammarere Home
111 Sunrise Ct. Frankfort, NY
Led by Mark Cammarere
Our study begins with the old testament. although significant archeological contributions have been made to New Testament scholarship, the reliability of the NT text is well attested by study of the documents themselves.  However, many of the OT books are far more ancient-with the earliest originals likely penned by Moses in approximately 1500-1400 BC. Archeological finds provide a wondrous backdrop and window into OT life and times. Join us as we probe the historicity of our ancient faith!
