Jerusalem: Historical Perspectives from Ancient Sources
Dr. Maxwell Miller
Sunday, March 16, 4pm
Most of our information about earliest Jerusalem comes from the Hebrew Bible. Yet there are a few other ancient written sources that have direct bearing on the early history of the city, such as a fifteenth-century BC letter discovered in Egypt. Dr. Miller, co-author of the widely respected volume A History of Ancient Israel and Judah, will describe this and other non-biblical documents pertaining to early Jerusalem and discuss what might, or might not, be learned from them.
Presented in conjunction with the film Jerusalem, now showing in Fernbank’s IMAX® Theatre.
Cost: Lecture is free and reservations required at 404.929.6400. Tickets for Jerusalem and/or Museum admission must be purchased separately. Lecture-only guests will be seated at 3:45pm.
This lecture is made possible by a generous gift from Marty and John Gillin in honor of Carter and Hampton Morris.
