Georgia Southern University Associate Professor of Religious Studies Dan Pioske, Ph.D., will host a 1-hour virtual learning experience that traces the history of Jerusalem from its first settlement until its destruction by the Babylonian Empire in 586 BCE.
“We’re going to see what it would have been like to walk around Jerusalem during the different parts of its history,” Pioske said. “When we ask ‘What kind of place was Jerusalem?’, That’s not what people expect. There are a lot of new archaeological materials that have emerged over the past ten years that we need to think about. “
“We had a lot of interest in Dr. Pioske’s course on King David in the fall, so we are delighted to host this program on the history and archeology of ancient Jerusalem,” Deedee said. Southerlin, Ed.D., Division of Continuing Education Program Manager. “This is a great opportunity for those interested in how history and archeology intersect with the Bible. “
Pioske teaches Bible literature, history, and interpretive approaches to Bible reading today. His research explores how the people who wrote the Bible experienced and recorded the past.
The program is presented by the Continuing Education Division and will be held on April 16 from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. The registration fee is $ 20 per person. For more information on the single course, visit https://web.cvent.com/event/923871aa-e108-4bac-895d-b96f201c1e01/summary.
