Looking back in the OT text and comparing what is there to what is onsite in the Holy Land helps us fill in the gaps in our understanding today as we read the narratives we find there . I can't go there, but the Lord have given some that opportunity and they have passed their findings on to us with video proof.
It's been a habit of mine lately to glean all I can from biblical archaeologists for a greater understanding of the breadth and depth of what God was doing.
In particular this is truth with Jacob's encounter with the Lord at Peniel. This gives us a more keen sense of assurance and confidence in God's trustworthy Word when we see this place and how it matches the biblical account.
Here Dr. Joel Kramer and his son seek out the ruins of Peniel on the eastern side of the Jordan river. Is this really Peniel, which is near Sukkoth? And does it match the biblical account? Follow the link to discover what Dr. Kramer found there and so glean from, understand, and know the times as God has revealed for us in His Word and for our benefit today.
