Lecture no. 3 from the course: The Holy Land Revealed
Taught by Professor Jodi Magness | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses
Here, survey the topography and layout of Jerusalem—perhaps the most important city in religious history. Then, review biblical accounts of Jerusalem from the arrival of David around 1000 B.C.E. to the start of the Babylonian exile in 586 B.C.E. (including the remains of a dramatic Assyrian siege on the city of Lachish).
