Oldest Hebrew Script Found By Teenager

This entry was posted in General on by .

Archaeologists have just found a shard of pottery with Hebrew script on it, which wouldn’t be a big deal, except that the shard is about 3,000 years old, a full thousand years before the Dead Sea Scrolls were written.  Scientists still haven’t been able to decipher the full inscription, but they’ve gotten a few words, including ‘to do’ ‘slave’ ‘king’ and ‘judge.’  hebrew_script.jpgThey think that once they’re able to read the whole thing they’ll have some important new information about King David, because the inscription comes from about the time of his reign.  Seriously!  Read the full BBC article here.  You can also check out some good background info on Hebrew, and about King David.
