• Samuel at Gilgal

    This year I will be sharing brief excerpts from the articles, sermons, and books I am currently reading. My posts will not follow a regular schedule but will be published as I find well-written thoughts that should be of interest to maturing Christian readers. Whenever possible, I encourage you to go to the source and read the complete work of the author.

The Merneptah Stela

Archaeology and the Bible:

Confounding earlier skeptics, but confirming the Bible, an important discovery was made in Egypt in 1896. A tablet, called the Merneptah Stela, was found and it mentions Israel. Merneptah was the pharaoh who ruled Egypt from 1212-1202 B.C. The context of the stela indicates that Israel was a significant entity in the late 13th century B.C.
