TOPIC: Harvard Professor endorses “The Lost Temple of Israel”
TALK SHOW GUEST
Adding to the international momentum of “The Lost Temple of Israel” Harvard University’s Hancock Professor of Hebrew at the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations Peter Machinist wrote the following regarding Zvi Koenigsberg’s groundbreaking research:
“You write in a fluent, accessible way that draws the reader immediately into the world you are creating, and the mixture of your autobiography with the scholarly effort to make sense of Deuteronomy archaeologically and historically held my interest throughout. I have still to think a little further about some of your conclusions and arguments, but that they are serious and need to be treated most seriously is beyond critique.”
This book is about Zvi Koenigsberg’s involvement in an excavation at Mt. Ebal north of the city of Nablus in Samaria. The excavation, led by eminent Professor Adam Zertal, Professor of Archaeology at Haifa University, reveals a “lost” Israelite Temple that pre-dates David’s Temple in Jerusalem by several centuries.
This changes an entire series of traditional and scientific assumptions about the beginnings of Israel and the Bible. These new ideas are being quoted by a growing number of Israel’s most distinguished professors of Judaica and other respected experts in the field.
The Lost Temple of Israel contains conversations with some of the leading authorities in these areas, all of whom gave the author permission to quote them. in addition, a former Nobel Prize nominee, a prolific well-respected author, calls the book “a great story”.
The Lost Temple of Israel challenges us to re-read the Bible with a fresh set of eyes and an open mind.
Having earned the respect of scholars in a variety of academic fields, Zvi Koenigsberg is a real-life Indiana Jones with an engaging personality who is publishing this groundbreaking work after 30 years of research that began with an excavation in Israel. Zvi Keonigsberg- part of the team that assisted the Archaeological dig and was instrumental in putting the facts together to prove it is The Lost Temple of Israel.

Dear Zvi, I enjoyed very much reading your book, The Lost Temple. The book, in which you have woven together your personal story along with your scholarly interest in the Mt. Ebal Temple, is filled with suspense and detective-work, making for an enjoyable and interesting read. The challenge you make to certain commonly accepted ideas cannot be easily dismissed by archaeologists or Bible scholars.2

“(The ideas) presented are unique, daring and thought-provoking. I finished the book in one sitting.”

Dear Zvi: Thank you ever so much for your beautiful book. I immediately dropped another project and began to read it between obligations. I finished it this morning at six o’clock after three sleepless hours, enjoying the remainder of it. You have done a tremendous job in writing it, weaving in history, geography, archaeology and personal biography in a most interesting way. You know, your reading and research through many years is equivalent to several PHD’s! Many thanks for your fascinating book –that often reads like a suspenseful who-dunnit!
Cordially, Leona G. Running, Ph.D.5

Dear Zvi: Despite our theological differences, I praise your style of writing and, should you write another book, you may be sure I’ll be the first to read it. I am tired of theological or history books that are boring. You write with passion, and you get the reader involved, this is what I liked the most about your style. You should never stop writing, Zvi, please! 17
