Assuming moabite is required, and stone is required, the following results were found.

  • Moabite Stone
  • Mesha, King of Moab

    in 2 Kings 3. But we know a lot more about him from a record he left us, referred to as the Mesha Inscription, or Moabite Stone. It was discovered in Dhiban, Jordan, in 1868 by a French Anglican medical missionary by the name of F.A. Klein . Both...
  • Tall el-Hammam 2008: A Personal Perspective

    In January 2009, we will be back in the field for our fourth season of excavating at Tall el-Hammam 1 , Jordan. Situated seven miles north of the Dead Sea and nine miles east of the Jordan River, it is the largest site in the southern Jordan River...
  • The United Monarchy Under David and Solomon

    (Shanks 1994), written about 100 years after his death. King David was probably mentioned again in the Mesha Stela (the Moabite Stone; Lemaire 1994) and possibly in Shishak's relief at Karnak (Shanks 1999). According to the excavators of Hazor (Amnon...
  • The Mystery and Miracle of God's Artifacts

    an accident that caused the Dead Sea scrolls to come to light? Was it just luck that caused F.A. Klein to discover the Moabite Stone in 1868, or the Mari Letters to come to light in the 1930's? No, God has led people to these discoveries; for...
  • Armchair Archaeology and the New Atheism

    is viewed with extreme suspicion, even though there are references to David found in the Tel Dan Inscription and the Moabite Stone, as well as numerous references in the Hebrew Bible. Indeed, Gilgamesh is thought to have been a real person despite being...
  • The Sons of Jacob: New Evidence for the Presence of the Israelites in Egypt

    When Jacob and his family migrated to Egypt, they were settled in 'the land of Rameses.' The Bible tells us, in fact, that they became property owners there (Gn 47:11, 27). During their time in Egypt, the Israelites were used as slave laborers to build...
  • Biblical Archaeology in 2013

    The Meetings of the American Schools of Oriental Research, or ASOR, took place in the city of Baltimore, MD this past November. For those unfamiliar with this organization, it is comprised of archaeologists and scholars who make the 'lands of the...
  • The Tel Dan Stela and the Kings of Aram and Israel

    A people known as the Arameans lived in the regions of Syria and Mesopotamia in antiquity. They were a large group of linguistically related peoples who spoke dialects of a West Semitic language known as Aramaic. Although not politically unified, they...
  • The Old Testament and the Ancient Near East: Profits and Losses

    Since the onset of "scientific" Middle Eastern archaeology in the mid-19th century and the deciphering of ancient languages and texts, biblical scholarship has come to understand the indispensable relevance of ancient Near East (ANE) studies to the...
  • The Name Yahweh in Egyptian Hieroglyphic Texts

    of the God of Israel. As Astour points out, the reference to Yahweh at Soleb is 500 years earlier than the well-known Moabite Stone’s reference to Yahweh, and thus it is by far the earliest non-biblical occurrence of the name Yahweh. Even if Yahweh in...
  • David Rohl's Revised Egyptian Chronology: A View From Palestine

    David Rohl purports to have produced a better correlation between the findings of archaeology and the Bible by revising Egyptian chronology. Rohl, however, cannot so easily be brushed aside... This article was first published in the Summer 2001 issue...
  • Meat Offered to Idols' in Pergamum and Thyatira

    This article deals with understanding the phrase 'meat offered to idols' in two of the letters that the Lord Jesus addressed to the seven churches. Dr. Charles A. Kennedy has set forth, in my opinion, the best explanation for the phrase 'meat offered...
