SciFriday: Joshua’s Altar and Goliath’s Head

WALKING IN THE FOOTSTEPS of Abraham, Joshua, David, and Jesus. Literally. That’s the short version of this week’s program.

Our 2019 tour of Israel took us from Joshua’s altar, site of the recent discovery of an ancient curse tablet written in archaic Hebrew at a time when the Israelites weren’t supposed to be in the land of Canaan, to the Mount of Olives and the Temple Mount.

Messianic Rabbi Zev Porat showed us the historic locations of the crucifixion and burial tomb of Jesus on the Mount of Olives, and he explained why “Golgotha” doesn’t just mean “place of a skull”—it’s where David buried Goliath’s skull!

And you can see those places with us next spring! For details on our Israel Tour March 19-30, 2023, log on to

Our new dates for our tour of Turkey: Due to the political situation in Eastern Europe, we’ve moved our tour back to October of 2023. Exact dates will be finalized by January. For more information, visit
