National Geographic has a beautiful seven-shot photo gallery of King Herod’s tomb, including good information about the recent discoveries. The Book and the Spade discusses the tomb in its current radio broadcast (direct link from this page).
Leon Mauldin has posted a beautiful aerial photograph of Aphek/Antipatris.
No, I didn’t watch the 60 Minutes piece on the excavations in the City of David. After a while, dishonest reporting is no longer even entertaining.
The Jerusalem Post has a short article on the stones of Jerusalem, including mention of the British Mandate law requiring that buildings in the city be faced with it.
Logos 4 was released a year ago, but I waited until recently before installing it on my computer. I’ll add my voice to the chorus praising the program.

Apparently the whole Bible is online at mystudybible.com, but it was a bit slow when I tried.
