In the modern world, the three major Abrahamic religions continue to challenge each other, while remaining fairly oblivious to the common golden thread which ties them together. Ken Hanson deciphers the mystical tradition of the Kabbalah and discusses how it can help us understand the world in which we live. As new archeological findings continue to sustain the biblical account of history, we may find it easier to look past the religious teachings and find a chance for peace through the ancient mystical traditions which still stand in plain sight, waiting to be rediscovered. This interview with Sean Stone was originally webcast on May 8, 2017.
Dr. Ken Hanson, author, lecturer, is devoted to disseminating knowledge of the Biblical and classical world. He has dug on archaeological sites in the Middle East, lived in a politically volatile region of northern Galilee, and taught Hebrew on an Israeli agricultural settlement. He has also worked with a television news-gathering operation in a war zone in southern Lebanon, at the height of the civil war that left the jewel of the Mediterranean in ruins.
