Bible and Spade Sneak Preview: Spring 2011 posted by Henry B. Smith Jr. MA

Dr. D. James Kennedy writes an article outlining some well known discoveries from the world of biblical archaeology that refute the critics and provide church goers with basic evidences that uphold the authority of Scripture. Dr. Gerhard Hasel wrote an article some years ago pertaining to the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Book of Daniel. In part, this article demonstrates that Daniel was not written in the 2nd century B.C. Along with the Nabonidus cylinder, the DSS provide us with more evidence that Daniel was written at the time the Bible records, and that the prophecy concerning Cyrus the Great was not invented by editors after the fact. Dr. Bryant Wood details the evidence concerning Assyrian inscriptions and the Kings of Israel. Mike Caba writes about "Three Kings in A Verse", found in II Kings 19:9. ABR founder, Dr. David Livingston discusses the evidence pertaining to the Israelite destruction of Jericho, and interacts particularly with the Canaanite moon god and its utter defeat by Yahweh. "Fall of the Moon City" is a must read! We hope you enjoy another content packed issue of Bible Spade, soon to be delivered to your door!

Israel Accuses US man of Antiquities Trafficking posted by Henry B. Smith Jr. MA

The authority said it suspects John Lund, a 70-year-old tour guide from Utah, sold stolen artifacts to tour groups he led in Israel. Lund was detained on Monday night (5/16/2011) at Israel's international airport as he was trying to leave the country, officials said.

Dating the Ezekiel Plates posted by Henry B. Smith Jr. MA

Until now, estimates of their age have varied widely. According to the British Museum, the plates could be anywhere between 300 to 2000 years old. In any event, taken together the series of 66 stone plates contain the entire Book of Ezekiel, with only a few notable variances in wording compared to today’s accepted Hebrew text. These do not change the message of the prophet to any extent, but they may provide hidden clues to Jewish scholars on certain mysteries surrounding the prophet.

Editorial note: This mentions the Dead Sea Scrolls as the oldest known Hebrew text. There is actually one much older: The Silver Scrolls discovered by ABR staff member Gordon Franz at Ketef Hinnom.
