    A Chronology for the Cities of the Plain

    by Steve Collins PhD

    Biblically, the timeframe for the existence of the Cities of the Plain ranges from the early patriarchal period of Genesis 10 to the time of Abram and Lot in Genesis 13-19. Taken at face value, the biblical chronology would thus require the Cities of the Plain to exist during the Middle Bronze Age. Southern Dead Sea sites such as Bab edh-Dhra and Numeira belonged to the Early Bronze Age, and were destroyed hundreds of years before the time of Abram. This is problematic for the identification of these two southern sites as Sodom and Gomorrah.

    A Response to Bryant G. Wood’s Critique of Collins’ Northern Sodom Theory

    by Steve Collins PhD

    My “northern Sodom” theory has been batted about the scholarly community since I first began to publish on the subject in 2002. In the fall of that year, I presented a paper to the Near East Archaeological Society wherein I provided a detailed refutation of the traditional “southern Sodom” hypothesis held by several scholars, including B. G. Wood. Since that time, I have continued to challenge southern Sodom advocates regarding the many serious “cracks” in the southern theory, encouraging them to come up with a substantive refutation of my theory, if they could muster one. Up to the present time no one has attempted a detailed critique of my northern theory in print, until now. In my opinion, the fatal weaknesses inherent in Wood’s criticisms of my position reveal the untenable nature of the southern Sodom hypothesis.

    Canon Tristram Fires a Lethal Shot at the Southern Sodom Theory

    by Henry Baker Tristram

    Many biblical scholars who frequented the Dead Sea region during the 19th century favored a location for the Cities of the Plain northeast of the Dead Sea. They did so based on clear statements in Genesis 13:1- 12 as to their location on the Kikkar of the Jordan. Once they had visited the entire region, it became obvious to geographical thinkers like H.B. Tristram that the Cities of the Plain belonged to the Jordan Valley proper, not the southern end of the Dead Sea.

    Explorations on the Eastern Jordan Disk

    by Steven Collins PhD

    Before my research into the biblical parameters for the location of Sodom, few scholars had paid much attention to the area specified by Genesis 13:1-12 as the actual place: the eastern Kikkar of the Jordan River, just north of the Dead Sea. This paper applies those parameters, in the form of a criterial screen, to various “Sodom candidate” sites, and reveals that Tall el-Hammam is the most reasonable choice for the infamous city.

    How Low Did the Once-Great Egyptian Eighteenth Dynasty Sink?

    by Steven Collins PhD

    After 158 years of empire-building, Egypt’s Eighteenth Dynasty entered a bizarre, sixty-year period of implosion, seemingly slow at first, but ever-accelerating toward ultimate collapse. It is my contention that the demise of the once-powerful Eighteenth Dynasty was largely, if not entirely, due to the events surrounding the Israelite Exodus from Egypt.

    Locating Tall el-Hammam on the Madaba Map

    by David E. Graves and Scott Stripling

    The Madaba Mosaic Map indicates a prominent but unnamed site near the upper-left edge, just above the Jordan River. Various attempts have been made to identify it with Tall Iktanu, Tall Kefrein, Tall Nimrin, Tall Rama, and Khirbet Sweimeh. This article demonstrates that the better candidate for this site is Tall el-Hammam which boasts superior size, perfect location, abundant water, and Early Roman/Byzantine remains.
