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.

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.
