BR 7:04, Aug 1991
I thoroughly enjoyed Professor Philip J. Kings Exploring the Valleys of Jerusalem, BR 07:02. More than 20 years ago I was a volunteer worker at Temple Mount dig under the aegis of Professor Benjamin Mazar. Professor Kings article brought back many very pleasant memories.

Does BR Enhance Our Relationship with God?
Christ was God come to earth to provide an example of transformation for us. Christ came to show us a transformation that we each are meant to personally experience.
Christianity is not an interpretation of God, it is not research into who the Essenes were (James C. VanderKam, The People of the Dead Sea Scrolls: Essenes or Sadducees? BR 07:02), it is not understanding the correct meaning of a Greek or Hebrew word and it is definitely not trying to make all religions comfortable with one another.
