    What a great opportunity to teach to world about the truth in the Bible and bring it to life with this amazing find. Thank you Dr Mazar.

  2. Dan says:

    Sail on, O Ship of State!
    Sail on, O Union, strong and great!
    Humanity with all its fears,
    With all the hopes of future years,
    Is hanging breathless on thy fate!
    We know what Master laid thy keel,
    What Workmen wrought thy ribs of steel,
    Who made each mast, and sail, and rope,
    What anvils rang, what hammers beat,
    In what a forge and what a heat
    Were shaped the anchors of thy hope!
    Fear not each sudden sound and shock,
    ‘Tis of the wave and not the rock;
    ‘Tis but the flapping of the sail,
    And not a rent made by the gale!
    In spite of rock and tempest’s roar,
    In spite of false lights on the shore,
    Sail on, nor fear to breast the sea!
    Our hearts, our hopes, are all with thee.
    Our hearts, our hopes, our prayers, our tears,
    Our faith triumphant o’er our fears,
    Are all with thee, -are all with thee

    Awesome finding specially considering destruction of temple by Babylonians and then by the Romans. Looking forward to seeing the pithoi rebuilt! Great work guys/gals!

  4. David Sheppart says:

    Eilat Mazar, Prof. Shmuel Ahituv much appreciation for the knowledge you share and the studies you are committed to.

    The hard work and grit required to do this, to dig into history, through sand, stone and paper(Books) I find commendable. I watch for more of this exciting work to come to the surface.

    Wow, this is really interesting stuff and how wonderful that Dr. Matzar’s grandfather’s work helped her to understand more fully the peoples around during King David and King Solomon’s reigns!
