A Tel Aviv University team that includes mathematicians, archaeologists and physicists has been examining pieces of First Temple-era pots and vessels on which ancient inscriptions are etched into the molds. These ancient pot fragments, known as ostraca, are revealing some amazing biblical parallels.
According to the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, one such parallel can be drawn between the inscription on the ostracon, believed to be at least 2,500 years old, and the book of Jeremiah:
“Even more gripping is the tale told by perhaps the most known ostracon from the period, which was found in Lachish, the largest Judahite town after Jerusalem. In the dispatch, an official stationed outside the city reports to his commander on the fall of a nearby stronghold, saying that ‘we can see the signals from Lachish, but we no longer see Azekah.’
“Scholars have taken this as a confirmation of the biblical narrative of Jeremiah, which recounts that Azekah and Lachish were the last fortresses of Judah to fall before Jerusalem was besieged and destroyed by the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar II.”
Although mainstream media is ignoring this discovery, the Israeli foreign ministry stated on its website that more than 100 ostraca with Paleo-Hebrew script etchings in have been found in the areas of Arad and Southern Israel.They proclaim it as “the largest and richest collection of inscriptions from the biblical period ever discovered in Israel.”
The inscriptions were used for different things, the foreign ministry explained. Some of the inscriptions were addressed to the commander of the Citadel of Arad, Eliashiv ben Ashiyahu, and discussed getting bread, wine and oil to soldiers serving in the Negev Desert. Others discussed the security threats in the area, warning of an emergency and requesting reinforcements.
The quest to understand these inscriptions began six years ago when archaeologist Israel Finkelstein and physicist Eli Piasetsky constructed a special camera to capture high definition photos of the ostraca.
What they discovered was that parts of the ostraca included inscriptions that were invisible to the naked eye.
The Blaze reported that “Once, the technician mistakenly photographed the reverse side of an ostracon, which was known to be blank … the image revealed four clear lines of text there.”
Palestinians and atheists alike try to refute any evidence that the land of Israel and the Jewish people have a historical connection to each other. However, mounting evidence provides more validity to the Israelis’ claim to their ancestral land.
Which, of course, is why mainstream media suppresses such stories.
These discoveries do appear to support biblical texts and give more weight to the claim of the Jewish people to Israel, Judea and Samaria.
Please share this story on Twitter and Facebook because all Americans need to know the truth about the history of the Israeli people — and the mainstream media cannot be trusted to tell them!
