John Ward's curator insight, January 22, 2014 4:55 AM

There can be little doubt that King David had a palace. The Bible tells us that Hiram of Tyre (who would later help King Solomon build the Temple) constructed the palace for David: “King Hiram of Tyre sent envoys to David, with cedar logs, carpenters and stonemasons; and they built a palace for David” (2 Samuel 5:11). Nine years ago I wrote an article in BAR suggesting where, in my opinion, the remains of King David’s palace might lie.1 I proposed looking in the northern part of the most ancient area of Jerusalem, known as the City of David.

Catholics get 'The Message' in new edition of Bible | National Catholic Reporter

Catholics get 'The Message' in new edition of Bible | National Catholic Reporter | Biblical Interpretation | Scoop.it

The Message is relatively unknown to Catholics because it is a Protestant Bible. It was translated by a Protestant scholar, omits several books that are in Catholic versions, was published by a Protestant outlet, NavPress, and until now, was not reviewed or promoted in Catholic media. The translations for The Message were published in parts over a nine-year period between 1993 and 2002, when the full work was released.

Amid the revolution - Mennonite World Review

Amid the revolution - Mennonite World Review | Biblical Interpretation | Scoop.it

It is no coincidence that the Protestant Reformation shook the foundations of Christendom less than a century after Gutenberg invented the printing press. A revolution in communication sparked a revolution in religion. It happened 500 years ago, and it is happening now.
