The Peoples of the Bible: The Moabites: The Kingdom of Mesha (4 of6)

"In this video we explore what we know about the people of Moab from history, the Bible, and archaeology. The Moabites were a people who lived in the territory east of the Dead Sea in the modern day Kingdom of Jordan. They appear in the Pentateuch, in Judges, Samuel, and Kings. They are said to have shameful origins and are targets of prophetic ire. History and archaeology offer some insights into when and how the kingdom of Moab developed. With artifacts like the Balu'a Stele and the Mesha Stele we can explore the trajectory of Moabite history." from video introduction
