Fascinating find that’s been in the news in the last week or so!  Check out the details here and here.

Archaeology once again illuminates the biblical text, adding dimension to what we read about in the exilic and post-exilic prophets of the Old Testament.

Particularly noteworthy was this quote: “Prof. Wayne Horowitz, one of the archaeologists who studied the tablets, says this is the most important ancient Jewish archive since the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls.”

Wow.
