Church of the Apostles Found on Mt Zion! – TaborBlog

This groundbreaking article by the late Bargil Pixner, a Benedictine priest and my dear friend, mentor, and colleague, was published in Biblical Archaeology Review in May/June, 1990. For me it was a most important article–groundbreaking! Other than Jim Strange and Shimon Gibson, there is no one from whom I have learned more of ancient Jerusalem–both underground and what remains visible to this day–after nearly 2000 years!

I carried it to Israel with me in July of that year  on my first of 70 trips since! Within days of my arrival I immediately went to the historic Dormition Abbey on Mt Zion to introduce myself to Fr. Pixner. We became fast friends over the next decades, until his death in 2002. You can read the article yourself made available by Michael McKinney of Center One Foundation, with permission from the late BAR editor, Hershel Shanks.
