Fascinating Archeological Discoveries That Support The Bible


In 1979 archaeologist Gabriel Barkay and his team were doing some excavations of several tombs on the Ketef Hinnom, an archaeological site southwest of Jerusalem, next to the St. Andrew’s Church.

Barkay’s team discovered something at a burial cave: the two tiny silver scrolls which were then used as amulets. These amulets contain some portions from the Book of Numbers of the Old Testament. And also, they are also inscribed with the name of God, “YHWH,” or “Yahweh.” These scrolls are considered the oldest known archaeological finds that present biblical reference.
