            1) TEL HAZOR AND THE CONQUEST UNDER JOSHUA 

˙

TITLE: “The Dating of Hazor’s Destruction in Joshua 11 via Biblical, Archaeological, & Epigraphical Evidence”

AUTHOR: Douglas Petrovich

SELECTED QUOTE: “The only tenable solution for dating the destruction of the Hazor of Joshua 11 is to place it firmly at the close of Late Bronze I, as the Biblical narrative matches perfectly with the archaeological evidence that relates both to Late Bronze I and the transition into Late Bronze II.”

            The article presented here is an edited and expanded version of the article of virtually the same name that was published in the Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society (Sept 2008). “The Dating of Hazor’s Destruction in Joshua 11 via Biblical, Archaeological, & Epigraphical Evidence” explores the Late-Bronze-Age destructions visible at Biblical Hazor, which is located in the Jordan Rift Valley to the north of the Sea of Galilee, that are candidates for the destruction recorded in Joshua 11. Is the destruction of Hazor in Joshua 11 connected with the destruction visible in the stratum of the Late Bronze IIB/III Age (1300–1200 BC), or the one visible in the stratum of the Late Bronze I Age (1550–1400 BC)? How does one’s view of the dating of this destruction fit together with the chronological statements found in the OT, and thus influence one’s understanding of how to interpret the Bible? Much more is at stake than meets the eye!

          1) THE ERA OF MOSES AND THE EXODUS

TITLE: “Amenhotep II and the Historicity of the Exodus Pharaoh”

AUTHOR: Douglas Petrovich

SELECTED QUOTE: “These answers prove not only that Amenhotep II is the only legitimate candidate for the exodus-pharaoh, but that the Biblical chronology of that era functions as a canon against which Egyptian history may be synchronized.”

            The article presented here is an edited and expanded version of the article of the same name published in The Master’s Seminary Journal (Spring 2006). This article evaluates the candidacy of Amenhotep II (ca. 1455–1418 BC), the 18th-Dynasty pharaoh who was the son and heir of Egypt’s greatest imperialistic pharaoh, Thutmose III (ca. 1506–1452 BC), as the exodus-pharaoh by examining Amenhotep II’s biography against many of the characteristics that must be true of the exodus-pharaoh historically. The conclusion drawn is that not only does he fulfill all of these qualifications, but that he is the only pharaoh of either the 18th or 19th Dynasty of Egypt who sufficiently meets the necessary biographical requirements of the exodus-pharaoh. The examination itself is a fascinating and enlightening study into the life of one of the Bible’s most ominous and despised characters, an adventure well worth taking!
