ABR’s excavations at Shiloh, Israel were recently featured in the Jerusalem Post newspaper. In an article entitled, “WAS THE CORNER OF GOD'S ALTAR FOUND IN SHILOH, WEST BANK?” Dr. Scott Stripling, ABR’s Director of Excavations, highlighted some of the recent finds at ancient Shiloh. In 2019, three horns of a four-horned altar were discovered; one of those horns is pictured in the article. Other artifacts featured include the Shiloh pomegranate from 2018, a kobaat (ritual chalice), and numerous pithoi, collar-rimmed jars that were found in storage rooms and likely held grains and fruits brought as tithes by the Israelites. These objects are evidence that the Israelites worshiped the Lord at Shiloh, as described in Scripture. The tabernacle stood at Shiloh for over 300 years and it was essentially Israel’s first capital city.
