June 29, 1932
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Viscount Allenby, Dean Inge and Dr. Leonard Woolley, the head of the British Museum excavation expedition in Ur, will be chairman at three lectures on “The Sojourn of Israel in Egypt in the Light of the Monuments and Language”, which will be delivered by Professor A. S. Yahuda at University College here in aid of the British School of Archeology, on Monday, July 18th. and 25th., and Thursday July 28th.

The Exhibition of Professor Sir Flinders Petrie’s new discoveries in his recent excavations in Southern Palestine will be open at University College daily from July 11th. to August 6th.

Dr. Yahuda published some time ago a book on the Pentateuch and its relation to Egypt, which created a stir. His aim is to disprove Biblical criticism, and scientifically prove the truth of Biblical statements and records.

Every new discovery of old monuments and documents has confirmed the Bible, Dr. Yehuda said to the J. T. A., and the recent finds at Jericho are very significant for fixing the date of the Exodus.

Dr. Yahuda intends to show in the light of Egyptian language and monuments how correct are the details contained in the story of Joseph and of the bondage of the Hebrews in Egypt.

Tickets, which are five shillings for the course, are obtainable from Lady Petrie or the Dowager Lady Swaythling at University College.
