Ancient Israel in Sinai Summary


Ancient Israel in Sinai: The Evidence for the Authenticity of the Wilderness Traditions by James K. Hoffmeier (Professor of Old Testament and Near Eastern Archaeology, Professor of Old Testament and Near Eastern Archaeology, Trinity International University)

In his pathbreaking Israel in Egypt, James K. Hoffmeier refuted the claims of scholars who questioned the historical accuracy of the biblical account of the Israelite sojourn in Egypt. Analyzing a wealth of textual, archaeological, and geographical evidence, he put forth a thorough defense of the biblical tradition. Hoffmeier now turns his attention the Wilderness narratives of Exodus, Leviticus, and Numbers, and to those minimalist scholars who deny the plausibility of the biblical account. As director of the North Sinai Archaeological Project, Hoffmeier has led several excavations that have uncovered important new evidence supporting the Wilderness narratives. This volume will present these archaeological findings as part of a thorough examination of all the evidence. The major focus of the book will be on the actual location of Mount Sinai, which some scholars have sought to locate in northern Arabia and not in the Sinai peninsula as traditionally thought. Hoffmeier's work will serve as a rebuttal to this and other challenges to the authenticity of the Wilderness narratives.
