Cult Place and Objects at Tel Motza
I am sure most people have noticed this, but for those who haven't, evidence of a shrine and cult objects including figurines of human heads and horses from Iron Age IIA at Tel Motza outside of Jerusalem. See further information here.
I have a Ph.D. in Religion from Columbia University. I am currently a visiting instructor in the Department of Philosophy and Religion at the University of Mississippi. My research focuses on the New Testament and emergent Christian interactions with ancient Judaism in their Greco-Roman and ancient Near Eastern environments.
