I went to the City of David when I went to Israel recently. Amazing site. Archaeologist have discovered many of these bullas which were used to leave a seal of clay to mark documents. Some of the bulllas are from figures from the Hebrew scriptures.
The language on the bullas shown is Hebrew using an ancient script.
Thou believest that there is one God? Thou doest well. The devils also believe, and tremble.
After 2,600 years I’ll bet that seal needed some serious veterinary care!
There are some almost that old on the piers in San Fran Sissyco.
Muslims will be outraged!.....4
Once again, a major find proving the reliability of the Bible as an historical text. What wonderful days for those of us who see the Hand of God in discoveries like this.
Especially seeing how Josiah was so faithful to the Bible and wanted to especially honor the finding of the Law.
The statement notes that the name Nathan-Melech appears once in the Hebrew Bible, in II Kings 23:11, where he is described as an official in the court of King Josiah.
Interesting that the seal is written in Paleo-Hebrew pictographs and not in the Classical Hebrew used in the Bible which didn't develop until many centuries later.
In other news, the sun rose this morning...
Is that the college seal from Huxley College?
In order to make that connection, you would have to explain the 500 to 700 year gap between the date of this object which was written in Paleo Hebrew, and rise of the Classical Hebrew language in which the Book of Kings is written.
How do you know which script was used to write the original manuscript of the Book of Kings?
Do you know there was an "original" that pre-dates the 2nd Century BCE?
Not if it was a Navy Seal. They're tough.
So you don’t know what script the original was written in.
