Telling the Story of Tel Dan in Switzerland

News Aug. 16, 2017

Dr. Jonathan Greer, associate professor of Old Testament and director of the Hesse Memorial Archaeological Laboratory, traveled to Switzerland in June. Participating in a conference hosted by the University of Lausanne, he presented research based on his extensive involvement with the Tel Dan archaeological site.

The two-day conference examined the topic of biblical food prohibitions in light of cultural, historical and archaeological perspectives. As part of the program, Greer shared a paper entitled “Prohibited Pigs and Prescribed Priestly Portions: Zooarchaeological Remains from Tel Dan and Questions Concerning Ethnicity and Priestly Traditions in the Hebrew Bible.”

“It was a privilege and pleasure to participate in these broader academic discussions concerning the complexity of the composition of biblical texts and the relationship between the text and archaeology,” Greer said.

Representing Cornerstone University and Grand Rapids Theological Seminary, Greer joined a speaker lineup that included scholars from the University of Lausanne, the University of Zurich, Leuven University, the University of Geneva, Tel Aviv University, the University of Haifa, Baylor University and the University of Leiden.
