Newly Discovered Lead Tablet on Mt. Ebal – A Roundtable Discussion

Michael C. Luddeni/Associates for Biblical Research, from the Times of Israel (25 March 2022).

Episode:In this episode – several of the co-hosts (Oliver Hersey, Mark Janzen, Kyle Keimer, and Chris McKinny) discuss the recent announcement of the discovery of a lead tablet from Mount Ebal that potentially dates to the end of the Late Bronze Age and/or Early Iron Age and purportedly mentions the divine name – YHW (i..e, Yahweh). The discussion centers on Adam Zertal’s initial excavations, the significance of the Iron I settlement wave in the highlands of Ephraim and Manasseh (i.e., northern West Bank) for Israelite history, the background of the discovery of the tablet via wet sifting, and the potential significance of this discovery for early Israel. Like everyone else, we eagerly await the publication…

    hi. Enjoyed listening to this. There was much good information. Given that I was at the excavation from its beginning and even before, and devoted the last 35 years investigating the site and everything related, including speaking to the biggest experts in a variety of fields, I feel it appropriate that I point out that there are also a number of errors in your statements.I suggest you take a look at my articles at thetorah.com, which may fill you in on some important issues.
