Nyack’s Distinguished Professor of New Testament and Christian Origins Dr. R. Steven Notley will be the featured speaker presenting, “Unearthing Bethsaida-Julias: Has the City of the Apostles Been Found?” on Thursday, September 28 at 7:00 p.m. at the Nyack New York City campus, 2 Washington Street (Room 2241) in Battery Park. The event is hosted by The Nyack College Center for the Study of Ancient Judaism and Christian Origins and the Biblical Archaeology Society and the public welcome. Seating is limited.

The El Araj Excavation Project, led by Dr. Notley as academic director along with other Nyack faculty and students and archaeologists from Kinneret College in Israel, unearthed evidence of the possible location of  ancient Bethsaida and Herod Philip’s urbanization of the Jewish fishing village. This breakthrough stirred a media blitz that circled the globe including coverage by National Geographic, USA Today, Newsweek, Times of Israel, Jerusalem Post, "The Today Show," Fox News.com and the History News Network.
