The Bible has been under attack in the western world for over years but never more intensely than today. These attacks have taken different forms and have come from many different corners of the academic world, from philosophers, to scientists, to textual critics. In the specialized world of archaeology the attacks have increased dramatically in the past 50 years. Once a specialization filled with Bible believing individuals, the field of archaeology is now overrun with atheists and skeptics, agnostics and those committed to the destruction of the Bible as a source of true historical information. These attacks on the Bible are a part of a sweeping movement in western culture. Spearheaded by academic elitists in the university and the public educational system, the news and popular media, and the entertainment industry, these revisionists cloak themselves with supposed objectivity, purity of motives, and the superiority of science over the "uninformed", "unscientific", religious community.

And so little is known about the beginnings of the synagogue, that the Gospel accounts are actually a major resource for such studies. Why did Jesus choose the synagogue for the focus of much of his ministry? That's our topic on this program. The synagogue is a significant part of Jesus' ministry, as recounted in the Gospels. Wheaton College professor Jordan Ryan, author of The Role of the Synagogue in the Aims of Jesus Fortress Press, , has excavated at Magdala, where one of the most recently discovered first century synagogues was discovered, and has extensively studied the history of the synagogue.
