The book describes the labours undertaken in Israel in digging up the evidence and how Biblical accounts has actually been given veracity by the archaeological science.
In 1979 an archaeological expedition on the western shoulder of Israel's Valley of Hinnon "came upon the nine burial caves that had been carved out of rock more than 2 600 years ago, at a time when Solomon's Temple still stood. The tombs appeared to have been looted, but to the team's astonishment one of the caves whose roof had collapsed had not been touched in all the intervening centuries.It contained the remains of nearly 100 people and a vast array of burial gifts, from glass vessels to jewellery . The greatest prizes at first seemed relatively modest: two small rolled up silver scrolls, evidently intended to be worn around the neck as amulets".
Four years later the Israel Museum laboratory, through chemical means, uncovered the Hebrew writings on the scrolls of Yod-He-Weh- which formed the sacred name of G-D.
Verses from the Sixth Chapter of Numbers was revealed, written before 600 BC, using the exact same liturgy used by the Jews in synagogues today.
The historicity of the Biblical narrative was advanced considerably in the 20th century by many discoveries, including the site of the ancient city of Lachshish, the scene of so many Biblical struggles beginning in the days of Joshua, rediscovered in the 1930s by British archaeologist John Starkey.Read more ›
