The last few years have seen an enormous amount of excavation in Laodicea. It is still ongoing, as Ferrell Jenkins and I saw several sectors of the very large tel that had teams of workers. One site of importance is the restoration of a pagan temple which reflects some of the wealth and splendor for which this city was famous. Remember God had His people here in Laodicea also, and they were the recipients of the 7th of the Seven Letters (Rev. 2-3).
At the back of the temple there is a clear platform through which you can look down and see more excavation several meters below.
On the lighter side I present you with a camel photo.
May I say it’s good to be back in Sweet Home Alabama!
