Our Evening Lectures Online are scheduled for Saturday evenings, once every two months. They will be on a wide variety of subjects – many of which are not necessarily associated with other material being presented through our curriculum – and will be presented by both regular and visiting speakers. For details of future events, please see below. All Evening Lectures Online will be available on the Zoom platform and can be accessed by clicking here or on the image below. All are welcome.

The city of Lachish is generally considered to have been one of the most important cities of Judah, perhaps second only to Jerusalem. Situated around 25 miles southwest of Jerusalem, in the foothills of Judah, the site has been excavated on several occasions since the early 1930s.
It has proved to be a fascinating site, yielding a wealth of information from the excavations undertaken there in the last hundred years or so. But it is perhaps discoveries made elsewhere which have made Lachish particularly significant from a Biblical perspective.
In this lecture, Patrick Boyns will present a story of archaeological discoveries which together provide some of the most compelling historical evidence confirming an actual Biblical event. Having led numerous tours of the British Museum over the years and following a visit to the site of Lachish itself, he looks forward to sharing something of those experiences with us in the fourth of our Evening Lectures Online.
