The Lost Tomb of King David

What have archaeologists and biblical scholars recently learned about the location of King David’s tomb? What are some misconceptions about the tomb’s whereabouts? What implications would a discovery of such magnitude have on the Christian faith?

David Sielaff will be driving up to Bellingham from Portland, Oregon to address those questions in tonight’s lecture The Lost Tomb of King David. David Sielaff has been the Director of the Associates for Scriptural Knowledge since 2002. The mission of ASK is to strengthen the faith of Bible believers through education and improved understanding of biblical themes. Much like Logos, ASK places special emphasis on studying original documents and primary sources.

Tonight’s event will be the seventh lecture in Logos’ continuing Lecture Series. The lecture will begin at 7:00 PM at Mount Baker Theatre. As with each previous event, The Lost Tomb of King David is free to attend and open to the public.

For those who are not able to attend the lecture, an extended version of it can be found in MP3 format at the Associates for Scriptural Knowledge website. In addition to this lecture, the ASK website has dozens more audio presentations, articles and commentaries. This is one website that should definitely be bookmarked by every pastor and student of the Bible.

For those who live within driving distance of Bellingham, we hope to see you there!

  1. I think Logos should move to Philadelphia. Then I could attend.

  2. It looks to me like the ministry was founded by Earnest L Martin – who (according to wikipedia – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dr._Ernest_L._Martin ) has been associated with some dodgy doctrine… Is this series and the ministry credible or do we need to watch out for heresy around points such as the location of the temple or worse misleading doctrines?

  3. Thanks for your post Darryl.
    The point you raise is an important one. We want to make sure the lectures are interesting and thought-provoking, but at the same time they need to be acceptable to a diverse Christian audience. We would never book a lecturer for the sake of stirring up controversy, but (just as with any sermon) there will likely be some content in these lectures that some Christians disagree with.
    That being said, we are careful to select speakers that won’t present anything that could be considered overtly heretical. The speakers that are asked to participate in the Lecture Series are people that a) someone at Logos knows personally or b) come from a highly regarded academic institution. In most cases our lecturers have fit into both categories. This has proven to be a very good safeguard against any lectures being misleading – both academically and theologically.
