Prof. Edwin Yamauchi, author of "Persia and the Bible " and "Africa and the Bible " (Baker Publ.), shares insights from a scholarly understanding of the Persians, the Medes, and the Kingdom of Kush, that illuminates the setting for the Purim story.

Dovid and Barnea discuss costumes and Amalek, and the Persian interest in horses. Then, we interview Rabbi Pinchas Stolper, author of "Purim in a New Light, " and head of the David Dov Foundation, which promotes
publications that connect archaeological finds to the Bible. Rabbi Stolper talks about archaeology and Purim - perfect!
