We are excited to announce the premiere episode of “OnScript – the Biblical World” podcast, which will be a (mostly) weekly podcast featuring episodes discussing the archaeology, geography, culture, and history of the biblical world. In this episode, Oliver Hersey (JUC) and I talk about the archaeology of the religious reform of Hezekiah king of Judah, which is mentioned in 2 Kings 18:4. Give it a listen and subscribe! Thanks to Matthew Lynch (OnScript and Regent College) for all his hard work in getting this podcast off the ground! We look forward to upcoming episodes featuring Mark Janzen, Mary Buck, Kyle Keimer, and Lynn Cohick, as well as a variety of guests!
