  • Best Biblical Archaeology Finds From Last Year

    Christianity Today released their annual list of Biblical Archaeology's Top 10 Discoveries, a few of which were posted about here.

    Source: Biblical Archaeology’s Top 10 Discoveries of 2022


    From papyrus in Montana to ivory in Jerusalem, these are the discoveries that made scholars of the biblical world say “wow” this year.

    [...]

    Here are 10 of the most important archaeological finds that made news this year:

    10. A papyrus in Montana

    A scrap of papyrus framed and hung on the wall of a home in Montana was identified as one of a handful of Hebrew texts older than the Dead Sea Scrolls. The text is a little larger than a postage stamp, with four short lines of ancient Hebrew, including the name Ishmael. The unnamed owner said his mother was given the papyrus when she visited Israel in 1965. Israeli authorities believe it dates to around 700 B.C.

    The owner agreed to donate the historic object to the Israel Antiquities Authority, so that it can be properly preserved and studied. Experts do not know where the papyrus came from originally, but they do think it’s genuine. Radiocarbon tests matched the paleographic dating of the writing style. Ishmael was a common biblical name going back to the time of Abraham.

    9.Farm life in Galilee

    Rural life in Galilee came into sharper focus when work on a water project uncovered remains of a farmstead. The farm was abandoned for unknown reasons about a century and a half before Jesus’ lifetime. The workers left behind implements and equipment, including pieces of a loom and large storage vessels, giving scholars insight into the average day at the time the Hasmonean kingdom, during the Hellenistic period, was expanding north from Jerusalem.

    The dig director called the discovery “a time capsule, frozen in time.”

    8. A Tel Aviv tomb

    An accidentally opened tomb south of Tel Aviv revealed treasures that had been sealed away for 3,300 years. A digging machine fell through the roof of the tomb of an unknown Canaanite. When archaeologists entered, they realized they were looking at a burial chamber dating to 1300 B.C. A video of the entry records them saying, “Wow, wow,” over and over.

    Because the tomb was never disturbed and the items buried with the important person are still intact, archaeologists believe they will be able to learn a great deal from the excavation of the Palmahim Beach Tomb, which is now being planned. They immediately identified numerous pots from as far away as Cyprus, indicating a lively trading network around the time the Israelites were freed from slavery in Egypt, or perhaps 100–150 years after.

    7. A monument to Hezekiah

    Hezekiah is back in the news after the king of Judah’s name has been confirmed in an inscription excavated near Jerusalem’s Gihon Spring. Haifa University professor Gershon Galil has concluded that a piece of limestone, dug up in 2007, is the first known monumental inscription celebrating a great achievement in ancient Israel or Judea. These were very common in other ancient cultures but did not appear to exist in Israel or Judea. According to Galil, however, there is now evidence they did.

    He has deciphered the partial text as saying, “Hezekiah made pools in Jerusalem,” which echoes the phrase in 2 Kings 20:20, “He made the pool and the tunnel by which he brought water into the city.” According to the biblical account, the pool was one of Hezekiah’s great works, created to defend Jerusalem against potential sieges.

    6. Peter’s home

    A prayer to the apostle Peter adds evidence that el-Araj is the true location of the New Testament town of Bethsaida. A mosaic at a Byzantine church uncovered near the shore of the Sea of Galilee includes a petition to “the chief and commander of the heavenly apostles,” a phrase commonly used by Christians of that time to refer to Peter.

    Archaeologists believe the inscription comes from the Church of the Apostles, which according to tradition was built at the historic home of Peter and Andrew. If so, that’s strong evidence that the site they’re excavating, el-Araj, is Bethsaida, the biblical hometown of Peter and Andrew. Some experts think another excavated site, nearby but farther from the Sea of Galilee shore, is Bethsaida.

    5. Magnetic dating

    Scholars have discovered a new way of dating the destruction left by military conquests, giving them another tool to use alongside carbon dating, ceramic chronology, and epigraphy. In a joint Tel Aviv University-Hebrew University study, more than 20 researchers from different countries and disciplines were able to accurately date 20 destruction layers by reconstructing the direction and/or intensity of the earth’s magnetic field left in the burnt remnants of 17 archaeological sites.

    They were able to identify the destruction date of the Philistine city of Gath and several other cities by Hazael, king of Damascus, around 830 B.C. They subsequently discovered that the destruction of Beth-shean and two other sites in northern Israel, which had been associated with Hazael, actually occurred 70–100 years earlier, possibly at the hands of the Egyptian Pharaoh Shoshenq.

    “I think that it’s going to become part of the toolbox of archaeologists here in Israel,” the lead researcher said.

    4. Reading Elamite

    Scholars have cracked the code of an ancient language and say they will now be able to decipher Linear Elamite. A team of academics used a bilingual inscription naming several ancient Mesopotamian rulers, written in Linear Elamite and Akkadian cuneiform 4,000 years ago, to figure out more than 90 percent of the Elamite symbols.

    The writing system is believed to be a little younger than cuneiform, and about 40 known texts in Linear Elamite exist today, all found in what is now Iran. While cuneiform was deciphered in the 19th century, Linear Elamite had remained unreadable.

    The Elamites are mentioned a few times in the Bible. They were conquered by Cyrus the Great and became part of the Persian empire. The story of Esther takes place in a Persian palace at the Elamite capital of Susa. “Elamites” are also mentioned in Acts 2, when the Holy Spirit empowered the apostles to proclaim the gospel in other tongues.

    3. Ivory fragments

    Ivory was more precious than gold in ancient times, but many tiny pieces have been found in the ongoing excavation of a parking lot just outside the Temple Mount area of Jerusalem. These fragments—discovered over a period of several years—are the first bits of ivory ever found in excavations of the city. Through careful cleaning and restoration, archaeologists have determined the ivory was used in furniture inlays, decorated with rosettes, flowers, and geometric patterns.

    The ivory was found in the ruins of a large building that was devastated by fire, probably in the Babylonian destruction of Jerusalem in 586 B.C. It could have come from Solomon’s throne, which is described in 1 Kings 10:18, or the bed that the prophet Amos condemned in Amos 6:4.

    2. Curses on Mount Ebal

    Archaeologists missed a tiny lead tablet when they excavated a site on Mount Ebal 40 years ago, but it was found during the wet sifting process in the reexcavation of a dump pile. And folded inside the tablet was a message that scholars say they have been able to reveal with a CAT scan.

    According to Scott Stripling, the head of the team from Associates for Biblical Research, the tablet has Hebrew writing that reads, “Cursed, cursed, cursed—cursed by the God YHW. You will be cursed. Cursed you will surely die. Cursed by YHW—cursed, cursed, cursed.” The two uses of the divine name and the chiastic structure are remarkable, and the text could also be the oldest existing example of Hebrew writing by several hundred years. The curse tablet appears to date from 1200 to 1400 B.C., which would link it roughly to the time that Joshua built an altar on Mount Ebal and pronounced a curse on those who turn from God and worship idols (Josh. 8:30).

    The interpretation of the text and identification of the artifact is disputed. Images of the inscription have not yet been peer reviewed.

    1. A first sentence

    An inscription on a tiny ivory comb excavated at Tel Lachish in southern Israel tops our list for 2022. The comb was dug up in 2016 but it wasn’t until earlier this year that one of the excavation team members, Madeleine Mumcuoglu, noticed scratches that turned out to be words. She sent a photo to an epigrapher, who determined the marks not only were words, but they formed a complete sentence.

    The inscription is Canaanite—the first alphabetic language—and it’s the earliest complete sentence that has been found written in the language. Based on the shape of the letters, it was written around 1700 B.C., about 100 years after alphabetic writing developed first developed. The comb had big teeth on one side and smaller teeth on the other side—an early example of the kind of lice comb that can still be purchased today. The sentence says, “May this tusk root out the lice of the hai[r and the] beard.”

    Archaeologist Michael Hasel, who co-directed the excavation at Tel Lachish where one of his students found the comb, told CT that the discovery provides new evidence for the development of the alphabet.. “Prior to this time everything was written in either hieroglyphics in Egypt or in the cuneiform script by various languages in Mesopotamia,” he said, “so to have this complete sentence found at this early stage is quite remarkable."

    Writing on a common object also suggests that literacy in 1700 B.C.—centuries before the time of Moses—was not uncommon in the biblical world. The Canaanite alphabet was used to write the first books of the Bible in Hebrew.

    Source: Plea to St. Peter and Other Christian Archaeology Stories of 2022


    “And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favor with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus” – Luke 1:30-31

    Any narrative dating back almost 2,000 years is bound to have logical holes, and the story of Jesus is no exception. His very existence remains archaeologically unproven, though it was widely attested in ancient histories – including indirect references in Jewish texts such as the Talmud. Some bridge the gaps with sheer faith. Others, such as the unknown author of the second-century apocryphal Gospel of James, suggest elaboration of the narrative. But while proof of Jesus himself remains elusive, the year 2022 nonetheless brought revelations galore in the world of Christian archaeology.

    Heavenly apostles’
    In the city of Peter and Andrew

    Perhaps the greatest discovery in Christian archaeology in 2022 was an act of faith enshrined in stone. Archaeologists exploring an ancient church by the Sea of Galilee found something they had been praying for: an inscription, shoring up their case that they had found the long-lost Church of the Apostles built over Peter’s house in biblical Bethsaida. The mosaic contains an exhortation to the “chief and commander of the heavenly apostles,” who was, scholars say, Peter. Since the church was erected centuries after the event, its location relied on local tradition. But the inscription was hailed as a huge discovery – by archaeologists not involved in the dig:

    Archaeologists find entreaty to St. Peter in early church by Sea of Galilee


    Peter, in principle
    Where did the apostle really live?

    Scripture is conflicting about the hometown of Peter the Apostle, but historian R. Steven Notley believes the case for Capernaum is a modern artifact and describes key clues that point in only one direction:

    Where did Peter the apostle, disciple of Christ, really live?


    Discovery of a bishop
    The goldsmithing priest

    Fortunately for posterity, the Byzantines routinely put inscriptions in their churches. In Hippos-Sussita, a Roman polis atop a mountain on the eastern shore of the Sea of Galilee, archaeologists found inscriptions in the so-called “Burnt Church” (because it burned down) that shed unique light on the actual Christian people of the city. These included a hitherto unknown bishop, a priest with metallurgic skills and a couple with anxiety issues:

    New inscriptions in Roman city in Israel shed personal light on early Christians


    Knight errant
    Adrian von Bubenberg woz ’ere

    Today graffiti is frowned upon, let alone when the artists deface sacred sites. Yet once matters were different, and while we 21st-century snowflakes might be appalled by 15th-century Swiss war hero Adrian von Bubenberg scribbling his name on the wall of the room where the Last Supper was purportedly held (in the building where King David’s tomb supposedly lies), back then leaving marks of pilgrimage was de rigueur:

    Medieval Swiss knight left graffiti in ‘King David’s Tomb’ complex


    Startlingly graphic
    How Jesus was born

    The scriptural narratives of Jesus’ origin leave questions, some of which are addressed in the apocryphal Gospel of James. Written in the second-century text, the noncanonical text introduces Salome, a woman called in by the thunderstruck midwife who attended Mary and could not believe her eyes. Salome couldn’t believe her ears and the rest is described in the apocryphal gospel in startlingly graphic detail. Now further excavation at the cave where all this is supposed to have happened has found traces of pilgrims over centuries, including in the Muslim period:

    Evidence of Christian pilgrimages found at ‘Tomb of Jesus’ midwife’ in Israel


    Jesus, baptized
    Somewhere on the banks of the River Jordan

    Jesus’ baptism by John is described in no fewer than three Synoptic Gospels, which has not helped the latter-day faithful nail down the location of the site. There are two competing places, whose merits are elaborated by biblical archaeologist Prof. Shimon Gibson. Yet again, much depends on local tradition – since there is precisely zero evidence that anybody, let alone Jesus, was baptized at either place. At least al-Maghtas on the Jordanian bank of the river boasts some ancient ruins:

    Where exactly did John the Baptist baptize Jesus?


    A tradition of sanctity
    Deep inside the Saffron Monastery in Turkey

    In the year 493 or thereabouts, a monastery began to rise in the city of Mardin in eastern Turkey. Deyrul Zafaran, i.e., the Saffron Monastery, was erected right on top of a Roman citadel, which had been erected smack on top of a temple to the sun god built a thousand years earlier. Part of what is interpreted as a temple to Shamash can be observed deep inside the building. Most of today’s monastery is modern construction, but parts of it, including some frescoes, go back over 1,500 years:

    The early Christian monastery built on a sun god temple in Turkey


    Once is happenstance
    Twice is coincidence at Horvat Hani

    Israeli soldiers training in central Israel fired whatever they fired at a hill and inadvertently revealed the ruins of a 1,500-year-old Byzantine nunnery. Again:

    Israeli soldiers accidentally discover Byzantine convent, again


    O Jerusalem
    Remember it by all means, but visit?

    The Bible may admonish Jews not to forget Jerusalem, but it doesn’t insist they should visit, much less settle there. So how did it become home to more than half a million Jews as well as Israel’s capital? Andrew Lawler sheds light on the contribution of archaeology to the advent of Zionism:

    How 19th century Western archaeologists made Jerusalem a Zionist dream
