What Does Archaeology Say about the Fall of Jericho?

If you have never made it to one of the Logos lectures, I would really encourage you to come out to the Mount Baker Theatre on Thursday as Dr. Bryant Wood, Director of Research with the Associates for Biblical Research, will present on the topic "What Does Archaeology Say about the Fall of Jericho?"

About the Lecture

Did the walls of Jericho really come tumbling down? Biblical archaeologist Bryant Wood will present an illustrated talk on archaeological findings at Jericho, a site which has been a problem in biblical archaeology since scholars claimed that there was no city there at the time of Joshua. As a result, most archaeologists claim the Bible must be in error. Dr. Wood shows that not only was there a city at Jericho at the time of Joshua’s Conquest, but that when the findings are correctly dated, it is seen that the archaeological discoveries and the biblical narrative in Joshua 2–6 harmonize in an amazing way.

Mark your calendar, tell your friends, and we will see you soon.

Update: The audio is now available on the Lecture Series page.


  1. We are planning on moving to the Tacoma area in the future and I will so look forward to being able to attend these sorts of events!

  2. Maybe you can video record it and post it. That would be cool.

  3. Video would be great, I agree, but with an hour of lecture and a question and answer time, that would be quite a large undertaking in many aspects. We typically try to post the audio though, so for you or anyone not able to attend, check the lecture page a few days after to catch what was missed.

  4. How about coming to Raleigh, NC. We would love to have you. Good food and great people, it would be a double blessing.

  5. Philana Crouch says

    Consider podcasting on iTunes. More people would be able to find it.

  6. Any chance in getting the audio recording of the lecture soon? I will be teaching on the Fall of Jericho this Sunday. :)

  7. Kelley Smith says

    I have tried, repeatedly, to access the audio clips on the lecture web-site, to no avail. I consistently receive the following error message: “Internet Explorer can display the requested page…”. Any suggestions?

  8. It’s up now on the Lecture Series page. Hope it’s helpful!

  9. Phil Gons says

    Try to right-click and “Save Target As.” That should work in IE.

  10. Yes, I would love to have this video (and postcast would make it more accessible to a wider audience). Thank you nevertheless for posting this. I’m enjoying this just as I have many of the previous lecture series.

  11. The recording is pretty jumpy…So even if we can’t get video in the future (which would have been very nice with these illustrations), a better quality recording would be appreciated. Nevertheless, the content was understandable and the effort by Logos to put this lecture series on and make it available is appreciated.

  12. Jacob,
    Thanks for your comments. We actually noticed a setting on our recorder that was causing the breaks in the recording. Hopefully our next lecture (date TBD) will record a bit smoother. And at this point, there are no plans for video recording the lectures, sorry.

  13. I would love to have this video and postcast would make it more accessible to a wider audience.
