Cargill on the Tel Dan inscription

XKV8TR ON YOUTUBE: The Tel Dan Inscription - Extended Version with Jehu's Rebellion (Robert Cargill).

In this video Prof. Cargill examines the Tel Dan, or "House of David" Inscription and reveals what it says, what it doesn't say, gives its proper historical context, and explains why it's important to biblical archaeology. This extended version offers a discussion of Jehu's Revolt, and how his usurpation of the throne of Israel may have been part of a conspiracy with King Hazael of Aram-Damascus.
