Mission Statement
The primary reasons for beginning and maintaining the Woodland Museum of Biblical Archaeology are:
1.   To preserve and display antiquities from the land of the Bible.
2. To promote the understanding and teaching of Biblical History.
3. To demonstrate the historical and geographical authenticity of the Bible.
4. To create a learning environment for understanding God's redemption of the world through      Jesus Christ.

We have designed a new website that is more attractive and easier to navigate. If you haven't visited the museum website, please do so soon. The web address is: www.wufmuseum.org

He will be sharing with us the exciting finds of the first season and will also share how you can become a part of this dig in Israel. The lecture begins at 7 PM on November 4th at the Museum.

Dig at Tall el-Hammam:
Dr. Steven Collins invites you to participate in the annual dig at Tall el-Hammam in Jordan. Next year will mark the 13th dig season at this site believed to be Biblical Sodom.We need diggers this year and no experience is required. The dig season runs from January 29th - March 2nd and you can get all the information needed at www.tallelhammam.com .

Something New At The Museum:
We have added a beautiful Assyrian bronze sword from the Iron Age. It is dated (1000-500 BC) and would have been used in close combat. It gives you an idea of what Micah the prophet was referring to when he wrote "Then they will hammer their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks; nation will not lift up sword against nation, and never again will they train for war." (Micah 4:3) A picture is below and it is an excellent addition to the Museum. You can see it and several other new pieces when you visit our Museum.
