MONTHLY HAS MEETING DECEMBER 19th, 2020.

The Archeology of Christmas - Wilson W. "Dub" Crook

Long-time Houston Archeological Society member, Wilson W. "Dub" Crook, will present a very special holiday program at the Thursday, December 17th HAS monthly meeting. His topic will be “The Archeology of Christmas” and will be presented via ZOOM.

Dub in Jerusalem

“Many people approach the Christmas story in the Bible in the same way as they do Santa Claus – it’s a nice tradition to celebrate during the holiday season, probably based on a few facts, but more myth than truth,” said Crook. “There are a lot of historical descriptions in both Matthew’s and Luke’s description of the Nativity story. Is it possible to evaluate the credibility of their account based on current archeological research?”

Courtryard house

Dub will go through the Christmas story from Mary’s conception in Nazareth to the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem, the visitation of the Magi, to the Holy family’s flight to Egypt and show how many aspects have been supported by archeological discoveries, many over the last several decades. We invite you to listen in and have your faith in the Gospels strengthened for the Christmas season by this special presentation.

Mr. Crook is a Life Member (Fellow) of the Houston Archeological Society, a Life Member of the Dallas Archeological Society, a member of the Texas Archeological Society, a member of the Center for the Study of the First Americans, a Life Member of the Gault School of Archeological Research, a Research Fellow with the Texas Archeological Research Laboratory in Austin, and a Fellow of the Leakey Foundation. He is also an Archeological Steward for the State of Texas.

Social hour will begin at 6:30 and the business meeting and programs will begin at 7:00 p.m. In addition to Dub’s talk, HAS President Linda Gorski will also give a quick look back at HAS activities in 2020.  HAS members will receive a Zoom link via email prior to the meeting If you are not an HAS member but would like to join us for this important program highlighting biblical archeology, please email lindagorski@cs.com and she will send you the Zoom link
