On August 24th, Dr. Merilyn Copland will be speaking on Digging Deeper: Archaeology and the Bible. “Archaeology is immensely helpful in understanding the cultures, people, and events of the Bible. It also provides evidence of the truth of the Bible that one can share with others, including seekers.“
