VFTB 9/24/23: Save Joshua’s Altar!

ONE OF the most important finds in the history of biblical archaeology is threatened.

Palestinian plan for village on site of Joshua’s altar (click to enlarge)

The Israeli government recently stopped a construction project that would have built a Palestinian village on top of the ruins of Joshua’s altar. At least, the project is stopped for now—there is no guarantee that the work has been halted for good.

Aaron Lipkin (altarofjoshua.com) CEO of Lipkin Tours (lipkintours.com), discovered the construction during a visit to the site with his father, Avi. He tells us how he alerted Israeli government authorities to the construction, why the Palestinian Authority was able to launch this project to erase a critical piece of Jewish (and Christian) history, and what we can do to help.
