In First, Ivory Panels Mentioned in Bible Found in Jerusalem - 2022-09-08 08:07:03



The exquisite panels, now reconstructed after the Babylonian destruction of Jerusalem in 586 B.C.E., may have decorated a wooden reclining couch during the First Temple period

For the first time, archaeologists have found evidence of a luxury item mentioned in the Bible: tiny ivory panels that would have been embedded on wooden furniture of the high and mighty during the First Temple period in ancient Jerusalem, the Israel Antiquities Authority announced on Monday.

 
The panels were likely used on a reclining couch, the archaeologists suggest.

 ===========

Voice of Jerusalem comment: These findings are very exciting.  There is a saying - to know where you are headed, you need to know where you are from.  The immense archeological findings throughout Israel, many of which corroborate with Biblical accounts, is an important and vital connection between modern Israel and ancient Israel.  We are the continuation of the past.
