Babel, Abraham, and Sodom

In this lesson, David Capoccia surveys archaeological information from Babel and the time of Israel’s patriarchs. Important archaeological finds for this period include: the ziggurats of Mesopotamia, Egyptian depictions of Semitic life, and Mesopotamian marriage customs. David Capoccia also begins to discuss the claims that Sodom has been found today and what biblical details we should keep in mind when assessing such claims.
