 NABATAEA HISTORY

Nabataea.net also owes it existence to David J. Gibson (1904 - 1966) who was the primary force behind Nabataea.net's Library of Archives. David collected filing cabinets full of clippings and shelves full of archeological books and journals. While he considered himself an ordinary businessman, his knowledge of the Old Testament classed him among some of the greatest Old Testament scholars of his day. David studied Hebrew and Greek in his spare time, and concentrated most of his research on understanding Old Testament chronology and how it meshed with the chronologies of the surrounding nations. His knowledge of the geography of the Holy Land was astounding, considering the fact that from the age of 12 he was bound to a wheelchair, and never visited the Holy Land.

Nabataea.net hopes to digitize some of the important parts of David's research and writings, and post them here on this website. We currently have 65 books and articles written by David, and over 50 charts and maps in our archives. Some of his hand-drawn maps can be found in the Gibson Bible Atlas. We hope to publish David's work on Bible Chronolgy in the near future.
