Biblical Archaeology Exhibit Coming to Southwest Baptist University

BOLIVAR, Mo. (Bolivar Herald-Free Press) Southwest Baptist University will host the biblical archaeology exhibit “Khirbet el-Maqatir — A Journey through Biblical History” beginning Saturday, Feb. 24.

The exhibit will be on display through December in the Joyce Sells Heritage Center of the Jester Learning and Performance Center on the Bolivar campus and feature about 200 artifacts from ancient Israel, Jordan, Egypt and Syria.

“This exhibit has significantly impacted the faith and understanding of the biblical world over the past four years, and I expect it to be a huge inspiration to the people of Missouri as well,” said Dr. Scott Stripling, who serves as provost at The Bible Seminary in Katy, Texas, and as the director of excavations for the Associates for Biblical Research at Khirbet el-Maqatir and Shiloh, Israel. He also will be featured in a symposium.

“Visitors can expect to experience an illumination of the biblical text that will positively affect how they read the Bible and see the world around them,” Stripling said.
