YOU GOT TO EXPERIENCE Anathoth

anato5t

Anathoth is the name of one of the Levitical cities given to “the children of Aaron” in the tribe of Benjamin (Joshua 21:13–18). It is one of the cities of refuge, in the tribe of Benjamin ( Joshua 21:18 ). The town was named after an Israelite as seen in 1 Chronicles (1 Chr 7:8), and in Nehemiah (Neh 10:19). Anathoth is  the native place of Abiezer the Anetothite, one of King David’s “thirty” (2 Samuel 23:27) and of Jehu, another of his mighty men (1 Chr 12:3). King Solomon banished Abiathar the Priest to Anathoth, “unto thine own fields”. It is the birth-place of Jeremiah .  In Jeremiah 32:6, there it says that God told the prophet Jeremiah to purchase land in Anathoth from his cousin, Hanamel of Anathoth. .In spite of a hopeless situation of the impending exile of the Jewish people. Jeremiah forewarned the Judeans of the destruction of Jerusalem and Judah as well as the Babylonian captivity. But he also predicted that the people would return to the land of Judah. There was a vivid lesson to the people of Judah that God would return His people from the Babylonian captivity. Jeremiah had publicly proclaimed to the people of Judah that God would restore them to the land after 70 years of captivity in Babylon. Jeremiah’s faith in the promise of God was shown by buying the field at Anathoth, a city already destroyed by the Babylonians. Jeremiah was literally putting his money where his mouth was!

Anathoth is perhaps best known as the home town of the prophet Jeremiah (Jer 1:1; 29:27; 32:7-9). He delivers a prophecy of tribulation by the sword against the residents of Anathoth, who were plotting against him (Jer 11:21-23). It suffered greatly from the army of Sennacherib, and only 128 men returned to it from the Exile ( Nehemiah 7:27 ; Ezra 2:23 ).  Anathoth suffered greatly from the army of Nebuchadnezzar, and only 128 men returned to it from the Babylonian exile (Neh 7:27; Ezra 2:23). It lay about 3 miles north of JerusalemAnathoth is about 3 miles north of Jerusalem. Anathoth  is between the city of Michmash and Jerusalem  Anathoth is a very Beautiful Nature area that commands a spacious outlook over the uplands to the North, and especially to the Southeast, over the Jordan valley toward the Dead Sea and the mountains of Moab. There is nothing to shelter it from the withering power of the winds from the eastern deserts (Jeremiah 4:11; 18:17. In Anathoth are the remains of ancient walls and strong foundations, and quarries that still supply Jerusalem with building stones.

It is always the archaeologist’s dream to find inscriptional material, such as a seal,  clay tablet, papyrus, scroll, or even just graffiti on a wall. In Israel, an inscription is a rare find. In the summer of 2005, the Jerusalem Post reported the discovery of a tenth-century wall in the City of David in Jerusalem by Dr. Eilat Mazar. One of her area supervisors also discovered a bulla (a dried lump of clay with a seal impression on it) of an individual named ‘Jerucal ben [son of] Shelemiah ben [son of] Shevi.’ The name of this person appears in Jeremiah 37:3 and 38:1. This seal impression adds a detail that the Bible does not mention: the name of his grandfather, Shevi (Lefkovits 2005:13; Mazar 2007:67-69).


A hoard of inscribed Hebrew bullae (Seals) surfaced on the antiques market and was found to contain a bulla impressed with the name of Baruch, son of Neriah, known from the Bible as secretary and faithful companion to the prophet Jeremiah, the scholarly community was stunned.A bulla is a small lump of clay impressed with a seal that served as a kind of signature. Bullae were attached to ancient documents to secure them and to identify the sender. The backs of bullae often bear the impress of the papyrus on which the documents were written and the string with which the documents were tie.  Ultimately  over 250 bullae (Seals) came to light in October 1975 in the shop of an Arab antiquities dealer in East Jerusalem. The four bullae were purchased by a collector who took them for evaluation to the leading Israeli expert on ancient seals and scalings, Nahman Avigad of the Hebrew University.

The Temple in Arad
February 20, 2020, 11:12 am
Filed under: Archeology, The Temple, Uncategorized

 

arad

 

In the Royal fortress of Arad on the borders of the Negev, a whole temple – modeled like Solomon’s temple in Jerusalem in Arad fortress on Judah’s southern border. It is the only Judahite Temple ever discovered. This most amazing archaeological discovery is at Tel Arad . It is one of the most important archaeological sites in Israel, on which were found the remains of a  fortresses from the time of the Kings of Judah. .A fortified city from the Israelite period (Iron Age), with a unique temple and remarkable water facility.

The Temple was used from the eleventh century BCE until the eighth century BCE when the religious reforms, established with the opening of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem  banned all Temples and places of worship around the kingdom except the Holy Temple King Solomon built in Jerusalem. Before this Israelites had been living in the promised land for nearly 250 years. The sanctuary that they had bought with them from their travels in the wilderness,  called the “Mishcon” (Taberbacle)  served as  their central place of worship, but it was permitted to have also private alters called “Bamot” during this period , up until King Solomon built The Holy Temple in Jerusalem.
In keeping with the instructions from the “House of Jehovah” – the temple at Arad was carefully buried inside the walls of the massive border fortress of the kingdom of Judah – and never seen again, until it was rediscovered, intact, during excavations in the 1960s.

The temple includes all the elements described in the Bible as being part of the temple: a sacrificial altar – made of unhewn stones and earth, and a Holy of Holies. Two stone incense burners bearing the remains of the last incense offered there stand at the entrance to the holy of Holies, and inside are two  smooth standing stone pillars  – Maybe like “Yachin” and “boaz” the pillars in King Solomon’s Temple.

For nearly 50 years the temple at the Arad National Park, after being dug up and exposed to the elements again deteriorated away. Now, finally the temple is not only being preserved but also in parts renovated – the floor of local stones in the courtyard for example, or some of the walls around the compound. Underneath the temple a huge water reservoir was discovered, which will be opened to public in the coming weeks.

This temple consists of three successive spaces. A worshiper would walk the length of a long rectangular courtyard (12 x 7.5m) with a large dirt and uncut stone altar (2.5m square) into a narrow broad room lined with benches (10.5 x 3m) to face an elevated, recessed niche (1.8 x 1.1m) in the center of the rear wall. Two small incense altars of stone, one .4m and the second .5m high, lay near the niche, and Two standing stone pillars were found plastered into the niche wall plastered into the wall. A third stone, measuring nearly 1m high with smoothed sides preserving traces of red paint on the side, lay fallen in the niche. The identity of the deity worshipped is known from military and administrative correspondence found in the fort that invokes only YHV”H .

The fortress called “Alexandrion” -PROOF of the Biblical Narrative
February 16, 2020, 1:59 pm
Filed under: Archeology, Uncategorized | Tags: ,

wall2

wall

The fortress called  “Alexandrion” is at a Height of  377 meters (1237 feet) above sea level. At this summit is the Alexandrion fortress built by King Alexander Yannai (ca. 126-76 BCE) or by Queen Salome Alexandra (Shelomziyyon HaMalka) in 90 BCE. (and Latinised as “Alexandrium”), is mentioned by Josephus . It was mentioned in the  Talmud as “Sartaba” and is now called “Qarn Sartabe” (lit. “Horn of Sartabe”) in Arabic. The fortress was constructed by the Hasmoneans on a pointy barren hill towering over the Jordan Valley from the west. It was likely named after Hasmonean king Alexander Jannai. (104-77 BCE). Alexandrium was constructed by the Hasmoneans near the border with Samaria to accommodate a military garrison, as well as to guard political prisoners. It is  mentioned during Pompey’s conquest of Judea”…as he passed by Pella and Scythopolis, he came to Corem, which is the first entrance into Judea when one passes over the midland countries, where he came to a most beautiful fortress that was built on the top of a mountain called Alexandrium, whither Aristobulus had fled. The Alexandreion was restored by Herod , a task he assigned to his brother Pheroras. Herod gave it the character of a palatial desert fortress, similar to those he built or rebuilt at Masada, Herodion and Machaerus. Herod used the fortress as a prison for his political opponents, holding his 2nd wife, Mariamne and her mother, Alexandra there in 30 BCE. It was also the burial site of Alexander, son of Herod, and Aristobulus, two of his sons whom Herod had executed at Sebaste in 7 BCE. During the Second Temple Period it was a signal mount, where fires were lit to announce a festival and new moon. in the Talmud, its said to be the first stop after Jerusalem where beacons would be lit when a new moon was sighted; this ancient method of relaying information allowed the news to reach the Jews in Babylon in a short time.

Following their mother’s death, Hyrcanus and Aristobulus struggled for the kingship. Pompey  had just entered Syria to protect Rome’s eastern frontier against the Parthians. Hyrcanus went to Damascus to seek his backing. Aristobulus set out in the same direction, but his pride overcame him: he would not bow and scrape before Rome! Instead, he withdrew to the fortress of Alexandrion (aka Sartaba; see map above). Favoring Hyrcanus, Pompey marched against Aristobulus, who withdrew further to Jerusalem. On seeing the Roman display of force, he had second thoughts and went out to surrender. Yet his own troops refused to accept the deal, and Pompey, taking Aristobulus captive, set about conquering the city (erecting siege ramps on Sabbath, when the Jews would not fight back!). It was on this occasion that Pompey stepped into the Holy of Holies and did terrible things there..

The fortress was destroyed by Gabinius (1st century BCE Roman governor) but then rebuilt. Alexandrium was finally destroyed by Vespasian or Titus during the Great Revolt. The fortress destroyed around 70 CE.

There still exists Remains of fortress, aqueduct and plastered pools. The cisterns built into the mountain can be seen from the main road. The cone-shaped mountain has not been excavated, and little can be seen of the fortress, other than some columns. Parts of well built Roman Roads still can be see leading to the fortress.

Years’ worth of sporadic plundering has been replaced by systematic use of heavy machinery to empty a site of its treasures, then build over it. Using metal detectors to locate valuable coins and other artifacts, thieves burrow through the historic strata, rendering them unidentifiable. The evidence is clearly visible in the scarred and pitted ground awaiting construction, and the damage to such sites is irreparable.

The consequences are clear. These sites are being destroyed, together with the priceless information they contain. Some, like Khirbet a-Tabiqa (the biblical Beth Zur) and Tel el-Natsba (thought to be Mizpah, a central site in the book of Samuel), are slowly becoming residential areas. Second Temple cities such as Archelais and Alexandrion (Sartaba) are raided daily.

The miracles of The Septuagint- The Library of Alexandria, the Great Synagogue of Alexandria
January 29, 2020, 12:26 pm
Filed under: Archeology, EGYPT, History, Septuagint, Uncategorized

lib

lib2jpeg

The Library of Alexandria was one of the largest and most prestigious libraries of the ancient world. It was said to have 900,000 volumes of writings. in 48 BC, during Caesar’s Civil War, Julius Caesar was besieged at Alexandria. His soldiers set fire to his own ships while trying to clear the wharves to block the fleet belonging to Cleopatra’s brother Ptolemy XIV. This fire spread to the parts of the city nearest to the docks, causing considerable devastation. The first-century AD Roman playwright and Stoic philosopher Seneca the Younger quotes Livy’s Ab Urbe Condita Libri, which was written between 63 and 14 BC, as saying that the fire started by Caesar destroyed 40,000 scrolls from the Library of Alexandria.The Greek Middle Platonist Plutarch (c. 46–120 AD) writes in his Life of Caesar that, “[W]hen the enemy endeavored to cut off his communication by sea, he was forced to divert that danger by setting fire to his own ships, which, after burning the docks, thence spread on and destroyed the great library.

Jews settled in Alexandria at the beginning of the third century B.C.E. (according to Josephus, already in the time of Alexander the Great). At first, they dwelt in the eastern sector of the city, near the sea; but during the Roman era, two of its five quarters (particularly the fourth (= “Delta”) quarter) were inhabited by Jews, and synagogues existed in every part of the city. From the legal aspect, the Jews formed an autonomous community at whose head stood at first its respected leaders, afterward – the ethnarchs, and from the days of Augustus, a council of 71 elders. According to Strabo, the ethnarch was responsible for the general conduct of Jewish affairs in the city, particularly in legal matters and the drawing up of documents. Among the communal institutions worthy of mention were the bet din and the “archion” (i.e., the office for drawing up documents). The central synagogue, famous for its size and splendor, may have been the “double colonnade” (diopelostion) of Alexandria mentioned in the Talmud (Suk. 51b; Tosef. 4:6),

In 66 C.E., influenced by the outbreak of the war in Ereẓ Israel, the Jews of Alexandria rebelled against Rome. The revolt was crushed by Tiberius Julius Alexander and 50,000 Jews were killed (Jos., Wars, 2:497). During the widespread rebellion of Jews in the Roman Empire in 115–117 C.E. the Jews of Alexandria again suffered, the great synagogue going up in flames. As a consequence of these revolts, the economic situation of the community was undermined, and its population diminished.

A marble slab with the following inscription in Greek: “In honor of King Ptolemy and Queen Berenice, his sister and wife, and their children, the Jews dedicate this synagogue” The stone was found in the ancient Schedia, 20 kilometers from Alexandria; the king mentioned on it is Ptolemy, according to Th. Reinach (in “R. E. J.” xlv. 164). Similar dedicatory inscriptions have been discovered in Lower Egypt, one of them declaring that the king had bestowed the rights of asylum (ἄσυλον) on the synagogue (ib. xlv. 163). In III Macc. vii. 20 there is an account of the founding of a synagogue at Ptolemais (on the right bank of the Baḥr Yusuf) during the reign of King Ptolemy IV. Philo expressly states (“De Legatione ad Caium,” § 20) that the large population of Alexandria had many synagogues in various quarters of the city, and he says also (ib.) that when the Alexandrian synagogues were destroyed the same fate was shared by the shields, golden wreaths, stelæ, and inscriptions which in honor of the emperors had been set up in the open halls (περιβολαι) of the courts of the synagogues (Philo, “In Flaccum,” § 7). The great synagogue of Alexandria, which was destroyed during the reign of Trajan, was especially famous, its size and splendor being made the subject of glowing descriptions in the schools of Palestine and Babylon (Suk. 51a; Tosef., ib. iv.; Yer. Suk. 55a).

The Greek Old Testament, or Septuagint (from the Latin: septuāgintā, lit. ‘seventy’; often abbreviated 70. The first five books of the Hebrew Bible, known as the Torah or the Pentateuch, were translated in the mid-3rd century BCE; they did not survive as original translation texts, however, except as rare fragments. The full title (Ancient Greek: Ἡ μετάφρασις τῶν Ἑβδομήκοντα, lit. ‘The Translation of the Seventy’) derives from the story recorded in the Letter of Aristeas that the Hebrew Torah was translated into Greek at the request of Ptolemy II Philadelphus (285–247 BCE) by 70 Jewish scholars or, according to later tradition, 72: six scholars from each of the Twelve Tribes of Israel, who independently produced identical translations, this had to be miraculous. According to the legend, seventy-two Jewish scholars were asked by Ptolemy II Philadelphus, the Greek king of Egypt, to translate the Torah from Biblical Hebrew to Greek for inclusion in the Library of Alexandria.[13] This narrative is found in the Letter of Aristeas to his brother Philocrates, and is repeated by Philo of Alexandria, Josephus (in Antiquities of the Jews), and by later sources (including Augustine of Hippo). It is also found in the Tractate Megillah of the Babylonian Talmud. King Ptolemy once gathered 72 Elders. He placed them in 72 chambers, each of them in a separate one, without revealing to them why they were summoned. He entered each one’s room and said: “Write for me the Torah of Moshe, your teacher”. God put it in the heart of each one to translate identically as all the others did, , this had to be miraculous.

Some other writing not Septuagint included in the Tanach as we have it today include

Books of Tobias,Judith, Esther with additions 1 Maccabees 2 Maccabee, Wisdom (or Wisdom of Solomon), Sirach or Ecclesiasticus, Baruch, Letter of Jeremiah

Daniel (with additions) 1 Esdras, 3 Maccabees, 4 Maccabees

Rock-cut tombs are mentioned in the Bible. As its written about the “Cave of Machpelah”, was purchased by Abraham for Sarah from Ephron the Hittite (Gen. 23:2) Hundreds of Jewish rock-cut tombs were constructed in Israel in ancient times. They were cut into the rock with elaborate facades and multiple burial chambers. Some are free-standing, but most are caves. The earliest Israelite tombs, which date to the 9th century BCE in Jerusalem. There are a great many Jewish tombs dating to the Second Temple period.

In the Silwan valley is the most important ancient cemetery of the First Temple period, is assumed to have been used by the highest-ranking officials residing in Jerusalem, the capital city of the Kingdom of Judah. Its tombs were cut between the 9th and 7th centuries BCE. It is located in the Kidron Valley across from biblical Jerusalem of the kings of Judah, in the lower part of the ridge where the village of Silwan now stands. The architecture of the tombs and the manner of burial is different from anything known from contemporary Palestine. Having entrances located high above the surface, gabled ceilings, straight ceilings with a cornice trough-shaped resting-places with pillows, above-ground tombs, and inscriptions engraved on the facade appear only here. There are three different types of tombs in the Silwan , each type concentrated in one specific area. Seven of the tombs feature gabledceilings and extremely fine stonework. They have been described as among the most beautifully rock-cut tombs known in the Jerusalem area even when compared with tombs of later periods A second tomb type has flat ceilings and one, two, or three chambers of well-dressed stone carefully squared into spacious rooms. One features a rear chamber of especially “impressive” scale and quality. There are tombs combining characteristics of the two described here above. A third type consists of just three “magnificent” First Temple monolith tombs, now located in the northern part of the village. These have been carved out of the cliff to create free-standing buildings above the underground burial chambers. Hebrew inscriptions survive on these three tombs; these are the only ancient inscriptions that survive in Silwan. The Silwan. monolith was first described as located under the courtyard of a modern-period house serving as a cistern. It has the finest and most delicate stone dressing in the Silwan . The upper story was destroyed for use as quarried stone in the Roman/Byzantine period. Only a small section of the inscription survived to be recorded by Ussishkin. The first line is “This is the burial of Z …”. The second line “the one who opens this tomb . ..” The third line was illegible. The Pillar of Absalom is in our day the most prominent edifice in the Kidron Valley, easily recognizable through its singular architecture: a round dome set on a square structure.  Beside it we find the Tomb of Benei Hezir and the Tomb of Zecharia. At the foot of Ras Al-Amud, we find graves dated from the 8-7th Centuries BCE, and identified as part of the cemetery of the Jerusalem nobility from the Judean Kingdom.  The best-known grave among these is a tomb called “Yehu Who Is Lord of the House,” after the inscription at its entrance.

During the Second Temple period, rock-cut tombs were built outside the walls of the city of Jerusalem in every direction extendinf as far as 7 km from the city walls but predominantly to the north and south of the city. more prestigious tombs located close to the city.

The Tombs of the Kings is a collection of rock cut tombs in East Jerusalem believed to be the burial site of Queen Helene of Adiabene. The site is just east of the intersection of Nablus Road and Saladin Street. The gate of the property is marked in  French  “Tomb of the Kings”. As of May 2016, the Tombs of the Kings cannot normally be visited they being considered private property of the French State. From the house there is a 9 meter wide staircase (23 steps) that was originally paved and leads to a forecourt. Rain water is collected in baths, which are carved in the steps, and carried via a channel system to the water wells. At the bottom of the stairs there is a stone wall to the left with a gate. This gate leads to a courtyard that was cut from the rock at the same date. The dimensions of this courtyard are roughly 27 meters long from north to south and 25 meters wide from west to east.  The entrance to the tombs is via this courtyard. The tombs are entered via a rock-cut arch facade in the western side. The 28-meter facade was crowned with three pyramids, which no longer exist, and decorated with reliefs of grapes, plexus leaves, acorns and fruit, reflecting the Greek architectural style. The architrave was originally supported by two pillars, fragments of which were found in the excavations. The tombs are arranged on two levels around a central chamber, with four rooms upstairs and three rooms downstairs. The tombs are now empty, but previously housed a number of sarcophagi; they were excavated by a French archaeological mission headed by Louis Felicien de Saulcy, who took them back to France. They are exhibited at the Louvre.

The Cave of Nicanor is an ancient burial cave located on Mount Scopus in Jerusalem. Among the ossuaries discovered in the cave is one with an inscription referring to “Nicanor the door maker”. The cave is located in the National Botanic Garden of Israel on the grounds of the Mount Scopus campus of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

Nicanor is mentioned in the works of the Roman Jewish historian Josephus and the Talmud as the donor of the bronze doors of the Court of the Women in the Second Temple in Jerusalem. This fact is also inscribed in Greek on his ossuary, which is a rare case of archaeology supporting facts stated by written sources.

Rock-cut tombs are  found in the Judges 8:32; 2 Samuel 2:32; Second Kings 9:28; 23:30; 21:26; 23:16

 

The elaborate Tombs of the Sanhedrin are north of the city. They were so called by later generations because the largest of them contains 70 chambers with burial benches, and the Sanhedrin had seventy members. Each of the three tombs would actually have contained the burials of a single, multi-generational, wealthy family. They were constructed between the reign of Herod and the year 70.

There has more recently been uncovered excavations of a large Jewish necropolis Second Temple Period  in Yericho 75 of the Robbed tombs were surveyed. The graves were  marked in the Jericho cemetery By charcoal drawings of a neftI on a tomb wall and a three-dimensional stone neftI on the surface of the cemetery.

WHAT ARE rhinoceroses DOING  INSIDE SOLID ROCK ?

WOW

WHAT ARE rhinoceroses DOING  INSIDE SOLID ROCK ?
Filed under: CHANGING TIMES, STRANGE EVENTS

When digging marble from the quarry at Oreston, England, in the 19th century, a startling discovery was made. This marble is finely grained and quite pure. The only defect is that here and there wide seams of clay wandered through the 400-million year old stone, sometimes giving way to partially-filled caverns. In one of the caverns, the fossil bones of three rhinoceroses was found, which were common in the area 65 million to 2 million years ago. The cave was 15 feet wide, 45 feet long, and lay 70 feet down. There were no stalactites, no stalagmites, and no indication that there had ever been an opening in the rock, and no indication on how the Rhino’s got there.

A horned lizard was found inside a block of stone, in New Mexico, in 1853. The stone was “so solid as to preclude the entrance of the smallest insect”. The lizard was sent to the Smithsonian Institute, where it died 2 days later.

Excavating for the Hartlepool waterworks in Durham England, in 1865, workmen accidentally freed a living toad from a block of magnesian limestone 25 feet down.

The cavity [in which the toad had been contained] was no larger than its body, and presented the appearance of being a cast of it. The toad’s eyes shone with unusual brilliancy, and it was full of vivacity on its liberation. It appeared, when first discovered, desirous to performs the process of respiration, but evidently experienced some difficulty, and the only sign of success consisted of a “barking” noise, which it continues to make invariably at present on being touched. The toad is in the possession of Mr. S. Horner, the president of the Natural History Society, and continues in as lively a state as when found. On a minute examination of its mouth is found to be completely closed, and the barking noise it makes proceeds from its nostrils. The claws of its fore feet are turned inwards, and its hind ones are of extraordinary length and unlike the present English toad… The toad, when first released, was of a pale colour and not readily distinguished from the stone, but shortly after its colour grew darke r until it became a fine olive brown.

The last of the pterodactyls (flying reptiles with leathery wings and long, toothy beaks) died about 100 million years ago, according to established scientific opinion. But in the experience of a number of startled French workmen, the last one died in the winter of 1856 in a partially complete railway tunnel between the St. Dizier and Nancy lines. In the h alf-light of the tunnel, something monstrous stumbled toward them out of a great boulder of Jurassic limestone they had just split open. It fluttered its wings, croaked, and died at their feet. The creature, whose wingspan was 10 feet 7 inches, had four legs joined by a membrane, like a bat. What should have been feet were long talons, and the mouth was arrayed with sharp teeth. The skin was like black leather, thick and oily. At the nearby town of Gray, the creature was immediately identified by a local student of paleontology as a pterodactyl. The rock stratum in which it had been found was consistent with the period when pterodactyls lived, and the limest one boulder that had imprisoned the winged reptile for millions of years was found to contain a cavity in the form of an exact mold of the creature’s body.

Excavating for the Hartlepool waterworks in Durham England, in 1865, workmen accidentally freed a living toad from a block of magnesian limestone 25 feet down.

“The great problem for geological theories to explain is that amazing phenomenon, the mingling of the remains of animals of different species and climates, discovered in exhaustless quantities in the interior parts of the earth so that the exuviae of those genera which no longer exist at all, are found confusedly mixed together in the soils of the most northerly latitudes . . . The bones of those animals which can live only in the torrid zone are buried in the frozen soil of the polar regions.”[20]

All around the globe there are caves which are full of bones.  Many of these contain the remains of animals that would not have normally existed alongside each other.  One such cave, at Oreston, near Plymouth, England contained mammoths, rhinoceroses, bears, lions and reindeer.  Kent’s cave in nearby Torquay yielded, amongst another things, the bones of sabre-toothed tigers.

A cave near Settle, in West Yorkshire, contains the remains of the hippo, rhino, mammoth, bison, hyena and other animals.  They are buried under twelve feet of clay deposits and the cave is 1450 feet above sea level.  Charles Lyell speculated that:

“The hippopotami issued from North African rivers, such as the Nile, and swam northward in summer along the coasts of the Mediterranean, or even occasionally visited islands near the shore. Here and there they may have landed to graze or browse, tarrying awhile, and afterwards continuing their course northward.. to the Somme, Thames or Severn, making timely retreat to the south before the snow and ice set in.”[21]

Yet, according to his Theory of Uniformity we should be able to observe hippos doing the same thing today!  So, what could have caused hippo bones to be found deep inside English caves?  They may indeed have lived in England, but hippos are not known to climb mountains by choice.  They could have been hiding from the cataclysm, sharing the cave with terrified hyenas and bison.  Or their bodies, dismembered by a violent cataclysm, may have washed up there, as part of a concurrent great flood.  It is reasonable to say that these two ideas are more sound than hippos going on a summer holiday!

In China, near the village of Choukoutien, among the animals found in caves were a porcupine, tiger, woolly rhinoceros, camel, elephant, baboon, ostrich and a species of tortoise.  They are not of the same habitat – the bones have been somehow gathered up and dumped in the caves.[22] What forces of nature could do such a thing?

In Sicilian caves were found hippopotami, hyenas, lions, Megatherium, rabbits, bears and elephants.[23] On Kotelnoi Island, in the Arctic Circle above Siberia, where “neither shrubs, nor trees, nor bushes exist”, are found the bones of elephants, buffaloes, horses and rhinoceroses.[24] Similar evidence is available worldwide – proof of destruction at levels we dare not imagine to be possible.

Some say this is evidence of a recent poleshift

But this does not explain the living creatures encapsulated in stone.

I DONT KNOW ABOUT THAT POLE SHIFT BUT I DO KNOW THESE BOOKS CAN TAKE YOU TO PLACES YOU CANNOT IMAGINE NOW

Scale-model of an airplane in 1800 year old pre-Columbian tomb

ANCIENT AIRPLANES ?

They can be found in the Museo del Oro, in Bogota, Columbia. They are solidly dated and accepted as being some centuries old. Those are the real thing.

Golden object coming from a pre-Columbian tomb which, though an estimated age of 1800 years, evidently represents a scale-model of an airplane with delta wings, place for the engine, cabin, windshield, tail with flaps and elevators. It’s only one of many similar findings in South America.

One can identify vertical and horizontal stabilizers and swept-wings, ideal forsupersonic flights. We can even see what could be looked as corrugated metal or underlining structures. And there are not one, but many of these artifacts, like the other one at right.

On its wings, in this case smooth, we can also see what could be a symbol, much like the ones adorning our planes today.

Some years ago, the AAS-RA (Archaeology, Astronautics and SETI Research Association) even tried to actually reproduce those ancient jets.

One was fitted with propellers, while the other was actuallyfitted with a small jet engine, in the exact location they assumed it was in the original jets.

If you are still skeptic, then swallow this: the models byAlgund Eenboom and Peter Belting flew. They didn’t brake the sound barrier, but they flew quite well.

Rock-cut tombs are mentioned in the Bible. As its written about the “Cave of Machpelah”, was purchased by Abraham for Sarah from Ephron the Hittite (Gen. 23:2) Hundreds of Jewish rock-cut tombs were constructed in Israel in ancient times. They were cut into the rock with elaborate facades and multiple burial chambers. Some are free-standing, but most are caves. The earliest Israelite tombs, which date to the 9th century BCE in Jerusalem. There are a great many Jewish tombs dating to the Second Temple period.

In the Silwan valley is the most important ancient cemetery of the First Temple period, is assumed to have been used by the highest-ranking officials residing in Jerusalem, the capital city of the Kingdom of Judah. Its tombs were cut between the 9th and 7th centuries BCE. It is located in the Kidron Valley across from biblical Jerusalem of the kings of Judah, in the lower part of the ridge where the village of Silwan now stands. The architecture of the tombs and the manner of burial is different from anything known from contemporary Palestine. Having entrances located high above the surface, gabled ceilings, straight ceilings with a cornice trough-shaped resting-places with pillows, above-ground tombs, and inscriptions engraved on the facade appear only here. There are three different types of tombs in the Silwan , each type concentrated in one specific area. Seven of the tombs feature gabledceilings and extremely fine stonework. They have been described as among the most beautifully rock-cut tombs known in the Jerusalem area even when compared with tombs of later periods A second tomb type has flat ceilings and one, two, or three chambers of well-dressed stone carefully squared into spacious rooms. One features a rear chamber of especially “impressive” scale and quality. There are tombs combining characteristics of the two described here above. A third type consists of just three “magnificent” First Temple monolith tombs, now located in the northern part of the village. These have been carved out of the cliff to create free-standing buildings above the underground burial chambers. Hebrew inscriptions survive on these three tombs; these are the only ancient inscriptions that survive in Silwan. The Silwan. monolith was first described as located under the courtyard of a modern-period house serving as a cistern. It has the finest and most delicate stone dressing in the Silwan . The upper story was destroyed for use as quarried stone in the Roman/Byzantine period. Only a small section of the inscription survived to be recorded by Ussishkin. The first line is “This is the burial of Z …”. The second line “the one who opens this tomb . ..” The third line was illegible. The Pillar of Absalom is in our day the most prominent edifice in the Kidron Valley, easily recognizable through its singular architecture: a round dome set on a square structure.  Beside it we find the Tomb of Benei Hezir and the Tomb of Zecharia. At the foot of Ras Al-Amud, we find graves dated from the 8-7th Centuries BCE, and identified as part of the cemetery of the Jerusalem nobility from the Judean Kingdom.  The best-known grave among these is a tomb called “Yehu Who Is Lord of the House,” after the inscription at its entrance.

During the Second Temple period, rock-cut tombs were built outside the walls of the city of Jerusalem in every direction extendinf as far as 7 km from the city walls but predominantly to the north and south of the city. more prestigious tombs located close to the city.

The Tombs of the Kings is a collection of rock cut tombs in East Jerusalem believed to be the burial site of Queen Helene of Adiabene. The site is just east of the intersection of Nablus Road and Saladin Street. The gate of the property is marked in  French  “Tomb of the Kings”. As of May 2016, the Tombs of the Kings cannot normally be visited they being considered private property of the French State. From the house there is a 9 meter wide staircase (23 steps) that was originally paved and leads to a forecourt. Rain water is collected in baths, which are carved in the steps, and carried via a channel system to the water wells. At the bottom of the stairs there is a stone wall to the left with a gate. This gate leads to a courtyard that was cut from the rock at the same date. The dimensions of this courtyard are roughly 27 meters long from north to south and 25 meters wide from west to east.  The entrance to the tombs is via this courtyard. The tombs are entered via a rock-cut arch facade in the western side. The 28-meter facade was crowned with three pyramids, which no longer exist, and decorated with reliefs of grapes, plexus leaves, acorns and fruit, reflecting the Greek architectural style. The architrave was originally supported by two pillars, fragments of which were found in the excavations. The tombs are arranged on two levels around a central chamber, with four rooms upstairs and three rooms downstairs. The tombs are now empty, but previously housed a number of sarcophagi; they were excavated by a French archaeological mission headed by Louis Felicien de Saulcy, who took them back to France. They are exhibited at the Louvre.

The Cave of Nicanor is an ancient burial cave located on Mount Scopus in Jerusalem. Among the ossuaries discovered in the cave is one with an inscription referring to “Nicanor the door maker”. The cave is located in the National Botanic Garden of Israel on the grounds of the Mount Scopus campus of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

Nicanor is mentioned in the works of the Roman Jewish historian Josephus and the Talmud as the donor of the bronze doors of the Court of the Women in the Second Temple in Jerusalem. This fact is also inscribed in Greek on his ossuary, which is a rare case of archaeology supporting facts stated by written sources.

Rock-cut tombs are  found in the Judges 8:32; 2 Samuel 2:32; Second Kings 9:28; 23:30; 21:26; 23:16

 

The elaborate Tombs of the Sanhedrin are north of the city. They were so called by later generations because the largest of them contains 70 chambers with burial benches, and the Sanhedrin had seventy members. Each of the three tombs would actually have contained the burials of a single, multi-generational, wealthy family. They were constructed between the reign of Herod and the year 70.

There has more recently been uncovered excavations of a large Jewish necropolis Second Temple Period  in Yericho 75 of the Robbed tombs were surveyed. The graves were  marked in the Jericho cemetery By charcoal drawings of a neftI on a tomb wall and a three-dimensional stone neftI on the surface of the cemetery.

Mount Zion- HIGH ENERGY

 

UPDATED Jan 13 2019

Just as the moon waxes and wanes, so too the house of David goes through phases. The last peak was the fifteenth generation from Avraham, when King Solomon built the “Bait HaMikdosh” (Holy Temple). Then there was a possibility of the world reaching perfection and King Solomon being Moshiach. But it did not happen King Solomon made some costly mistakes.

The “mitzvah” (commandment) to appoint a King is not necessarily agreed upon. There is an argument in the Talmud Sanhedrin 20b regarding the verses of the Torah that discuss the Jewish king. The Torah plainly says (Devarim 17:14): “When you come to the land that Hashem your God is giving you, you will inherit it and settle in it and you will say: I shell appoint a king over myself … Then indeed you should appoint a king over yourself …” The language of the Torah seems obscure. Is it trying to tell us that the monarchy is not the ideal system of government, but Hashem allows it if the people will demand it? Or is it trying to say that indeed there is a mitzvah to appoint a Jewish king at some point in our history? In fact both explanations are found in the Talmud. The Talmud leaves this dispute undecided. The Rambam  holds that appointing the king is a mitzvah. Rabbi Abarabanel (Devarim 17:14) holds that it’s not. The  Ramban (Devarim 17:14) explains that the Torah obscure language here without clearly stating if it commendable to appoint a king or that simply this is what would happen in the future.

The Rambam writes that if someone is anointed to be the king by a Navi during Bayit Rishon (The First Temple) or the Sanhedrin during Bayit Sheni (The 2nd Temple) his kingship is valid.

400 years after we entered the land of Israel the Jewish people asked Shmuel, the greatest prophet of the time, that a king should be appointed. Shmuel was very upset at their request and kept warning them that the kingship they are asking will one day turn against them.

The lineage of King David is shrouded in mysteries, Here is a little revealed :David’s  Great Grandmother was a convert from Moab, Moab is the nation known for exceptional cruelty and moral degradation carried all the way from Lot and his daughters. The Vilna goan says that this kind of cruelty is a quality needed for a Jewish King.  The Torah forbids a Moabite convert to intermix with our nation, but this prohibition was limited to men, though its not written as such in the Torah explicitly. For generations there were no Moabite converts, the details of this law were forgotten and when Ruth came with Naomi, many thought that she was forbidden to marry a regular Jew.. Boaz however, knew the truth and issued his halachic ruling: Saying that Ruth is permissible to the Jewish Congregation. There was a closer relative than Boaz who could choose to marry Ruth but that relative refused, as he did not accept the ruling Boaz had made. He though a Jew could not marry a Moabite convert, even a female one. She became pregnant on the wedding night, but Boaz died right after. Some thought that his death was Divine retribution for marrying a Moabite convert, but in truth it was exactly the opposite – Hashem let Boaz live till this time only in order that the next generation of David’s ancestors will be born.

Boaz’s grandson Yishai was one of the leaders of the generation. At the end of his life he started doubting the halachic decision of his grandfather. What if Boaz was wrong? Then the entire family would be considered “Psulei Kahal”  (those unfit to marry regular Jewish people) There is one way to purify such families ( Kidushin 69a). The man can take a servant woman and her children are halachically like herself. If they are freed, they can marry anyone. But what if Boaz was right? Then Yishai is regular Jew and can’t have relations with a servant woman. So Yishai came up with an ingenious solution..

He separated from his wife, and freed his servant woman on condition that he is a kosher Jew. This way, if Yishai is kosher, his relations with the servant woman are permitted since she was freed, and has become Jewish. But if Yishai is not kosher, then he is having relations with a servant woman, whose children will not bear a stigma of “Psulei Kahal”. This way Yishai could purify his seed and have kosher descendants no matter what.

When Yishai’s wife found out about this, she did not accept such a decision. She was confident that Boaz, the leader of his generation, could not be mistaken. She Knew her husband was a kosher Jew. She therefore pretended to be the servant woman, and went to her husband in the dark.. When his wife was noticeably pregnant, Yishai, of course, assumed that this is an illegitimate child. Later, when Shmuel came to anoint one of Yishai’s children, it did not even occur to Yishai to bring Dovid. It was only when Shmuel received a message from Hashem that neither of the men standing before him is the chosen one, was Dovid called in. And here the TRUTH came out at last. The man that was most despised is the true anointed of Hashem. It’s the broken heart that Hashem desires (Tehilim 51:19).

David was the fourteenth generation after Avraham, so 14 is the “Gematria” of his name, David. His kingdom is compared to the moon. The moon shines its’ brightest on the fifteenth day of the lunar month, but by the end of the day its’ light begins to wane. So too Shlomo, David’s son, reached the highest point of the dynasty, but at the end of his life things started to deteriorate (see Melachim 1:11:4). In another fifteen generations the Temple was destroyed and our nation went into exile. Every month, when we sanctify the new moon we say that our nation will be renewed just like the new moon! And as we wait for Moshiach to speedily arrive, we continue: “David, the King of Israel lives forever!”

In Sha’ar HaGilgulim, is explained how the God uses “trickery and scheming.” In order to bring about what he desires !. Thus the works of the God in his providence most of the time is misunderstood by most of the people. As “His thoughts are not our thoughts”. We see this by God arranging for Avraham to be born to Terach, a leading practitioner of idol worshipper. Who would of thought that Avraham would be the first monotheist  ?

It’s God who made King David’s coming to his Kingship and his  life to be so difficult to under, and difficult for King David..David was the last one the suspected to become king from his family. No one thought Yosef would be the ruler of Egypt. We don’t know how many times things as these happen throughout history, probably all the time on a personal basis. We just don’t see it, and what we do notice most of the time all we can say is As “His thoughts are not our thoughts” along the long twisting roads and paths to Moshiach and the Final Redemption

Jews have been praying at this site King David’s tomb on Mount Zion since the Middle Ages (12th century). david ancient-well-cover-2100-years-old Ancient well cover on Mount Zion 2100 + years old davidtomb2s marker phjerusalemmountzion1 phjerusalemmountzion2 phjerusalemmountzion6 tom BEHIND THIS ANCIENT STONE MARKING THE GRAVE OF KING DAVID ARE SEALED STAIRS THAT GO DOWN TO THE BURIAL CAVES OF THE BIBLICAL KINGS OF THE HOUSE OF DAVID ! The Midrash, counting Abraham as the first Jewish King counts 14 kings between him and King Solomon, and another 14 kings from King Solomon to the destruction of the First Temple. King Solomon is the 15th of 30 kings. These 30 kings correspond to the 30 days of a lunar month, and thus the institution of Jewish monarchy is seen as starting as a “ moon” with Abraham, waxing until its greatest point in the person of King Solomon, and then waning as Jewish civilization became more decadent after him, until the destruction. Now more on king David and Mount Zion. Mount Zion is a hill just outside the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem. The term “Zion” became a synonym referring to the entire city of Jerusalem and the Land of Israel. There is reason to believe that in Biblical times the name Mount Zion referred to the area of what today is called the Temple Mount. However, as early as the first century the hill today called Mount Zion had acquired the name for unknown reasons. On Mount Zion is King David’s Tomb and that of the other kings of Isreal. An unexpected opportunity to investigate this building occured in 1948, during Israel’s War of Independence. A mortar shell hit the site, and Israeli archaeologist Jacob Pinkerfeld was sent to repair the damage. In the course of repairs, he removed the marble floor slabs and dug two pits revealing three earlier floors, shown in the lower left drawing. Five inches below the present floor was a 12th-century Crusader floor; 1.5 feet below that, Pinkerfeld discovered a mosaic floor with geometric designs dating to the Byzantine period (fifth century); 4 inches below the mosaic, he uncovered the remains of a Roman floor (end of the first century), consisting of plaster fragments and stones from a possible pavement. A foundation ledge projecting into the hall at this final level indicated that this earlier Roman floor was the original building’s floor. Pinkerfeld observed that the niche in the northern wall, behind the cenotaph, was Part of the original construction Standing 6 feet above the earliest floor Level, the niche resembles other niches in ancient synagogues. He noted that the niche was oriented towards the Temple Mount and concluded that the building was originally a synagogue and the niche was the aron (ark for Torah scrolls).Pinkerfeld concluded that the original building was a Roman-period synagogue or early Byzantine. . The thousand-year-old building that houses the Tomb of King David on Mount Zion in Jerusalem is almost always thronging; some have come to pray and pay homage to Israel’s famous king and ancestor of the Messiah, while others pour over sacred texts all day long in the anteroom next to the tomb. Jewish tradition has identified the tomb of King David on “Mount Zion”, a few hundred meters from the Zion Gate for more than one thousand years. The earliest mention of the Tomb of David as identified today appears in the writings of the Moslem geographer al-Makadasi, in the 10th century. However, al-Makadasi based this identification on the tradition of “the People of the Book”, that is, Jews and Christians. The first Jewish source to commit this tradition to writing is the travel diary of the “Jewish Marco Polo”, Binyamin of Tudela [1160 – 1173]. He writes Two Jewish workers employed to reconstruct a damaged monument on Mount Zion accidentally happened upon a secret passage andfound themselves in a palace made of marble columns.Within the palace was a table upon which rested a golden scepter and golden crown, with riches all around. The workers decided this was King David’s Tomb. Suddenly, they were struck down by a fierce wind and heard voices that told them to leave immediately. Three days later, the two workmen were sick in bed and could not be persuaded to return to the site. The tomb itself is a burial cave, which is not accessible. What is accessible is a cenotaph (stone marker) over the entrance to the cave. The cenotaph is located within a complex of buildings which date to the Crusader Period [12th century], though some of the buildings were added during the Ottoman Period [16th century and later], and may have served as a caravanserai (inn for traders on the caravan routes). The building housing David’s tomb incorporates much more ancient elements. The southern wall includes stones which are quite large and obviously older than the rest of the building. Josephus reports that Herod the Great (37-4 B.C.) secretly tried to rob the treasure hidden in David’s tomb. When two of Herod’s clandestine diggers met a mysterious death, fear overcame Herod and he ordered a tomb-memorial erected at the site. Jews have streamed here for centuries to recite the Psalms written by David, whose life teaches many lessons about human nature. The tomb is covered with a velvet cloth embroidered with the words David Melech Israel Hai Vekayam, the first song many Jewish children learn, which evokes the sense that David’s spirit is still with us. Prayers at King David’s tomb also turn to Jerusalem, which David made the united capital of the tribes of Israel. The anniversary of David’s death coincides with the eve of Shavuot, when it is customary to pray and study all night at the tomb. Behind the marker of King David’s tomb, the cenotaph there used to be stairs going down to the actual burial cave. Workers were sent down to look by Rabbi Goldstein, they came up terrified saying they saw down there amazing ancient things. This area was sealed with cement by Rabbi Goldstein. Mount Zion is a hill just outside the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem. The term “Zion” became a synonym referring to the entire city of Jerusalem and the Land of Israel. There is reason to believe that in Biblical times the name Mount Zion referred to the area of what today is called the Temple Mount.

Jewish tradition has identified the tomb of King David on “Mount Zion”, a few hundred meters from the Zion Gate for more than one thousand years. The earliest mention of the Tomb of David as identified today appears in the writings of the Moslem geographer al-Makadasi, in the 10th century. However, al-Makadasi based this identification on the tradition of “the People of the Book”, that is, Jews and Christians. The first Jewish source to commit this tradition to writing is the travel diary of the “Jewish Marco Polo”, Binyamin of Tudela [1160 – 1173]. He writes Two Jewish workers employed to reconstruct a damaged monument on Mount Zion accidentally happened upon a secret passage andfound themselves in a palace made of marble columns.Within the palace was a table upon which rested a golden scepter and golden crown, with riches all around. The workers decided this was King David’s Tomb. Suddenly, they were struck down by a fierce wind and heard voices that told them to leave immediately. Three days later, the two workmen were sick in bed and could not be persuaded to return to the site.

The tomb itself is a burial cave, which is not accessible. What is accessible is a cenotaph (stone marker) over the entrance to the cave. The cenotaph is located within a complex of buildings which date to the Crusader Period [12th century], though some of the buildings were added during the Ottoman Period [16th century and later], and may have served as a caravanserai (inn for traders on the caravan routes). The building housing David’s tomb incorporates much more ancient elements. The southern wall includes stones which are quite large and obviously older than the rest of the building. Josephus reports that Herod the Great (37-4 B.C.) secretly tried to rob the treasure hidden in David’s tomb. When two of Herod’s clandestine diggers met a mysterious death, fear overcame Herod and he ordered a tomb-memorial erected at the site. Jews have streamed here for centuries to recite the Psalms written by David, whose life teaches many lessons about human nature. The tomb is covered with a velvet cloth embroidered with the words David Melech Israel Hai Vekayam, the first song many Jewish children learn, which evokes the sense that David’s spirit is still with us. Prayers at King David’s tomb also turn to Jerusalem, which David made the united capital of the tribes of Israel. The anniversary of David’s death coincides with the eve of Shavuot, when it is customary to pray and study all night at the tomb.

Behind the marker of King David’s tomb, the cenotaph there used to be stairs going down to the actual burial cave. Workers were sent down to look by Rabbi Goldstein, they came up terrified saying they saw down there amazing ancient things. This area was sealed with cement by Rabbi Goldstein.

The Sfas Emet writes that the Mishnah in Avot (3:2) states that if not for the fear of the king, every man would swallow his friends up alive. Nonetheless, if people feared HaShem there would be no need for a king. The concept of a king, is because through fearing the king one will come to fear HaShem. Thus, we see that there really is no need for a king over the people, as every man should be a king over himself. This idea is akin to what the commentators write regarding the Mishkan (tabernacle). Prior to the sin of the Golden Calf, there was no need for a Mishkan, as everyone was able to contain the Divine Presence within himself. Once the Jewish People sinned, however, they required a Mishkan as a resting place for the Divine Presence. 

King David had made music instruments that were played in the Temple his son King Salomon built. We see in  Divrei HaYamim 1(Chronicles) 28:11-13 Then David gave his son Solomon the plans for the portico of the temple, its buildings, its storerooms, its upper parts, its inner rooms and the place of atonement. He gave him the plans of all that the Spirit had put in his mind for the courts of the temple of HaShem and all the surrounding rooms, for the treasuries of the temple of God and for the treasuries for the dedicated things. He gave him instructions for the divisions of the priests and Levites, and for all the work of serving in the temple of HaShem, as well as for all the articles to be used in its service.

The Palace of David has been discovered ! First unearthed by Dr. Eilat Mazar in 2005, the ancient palace of King David occupies the slope just north of the City of David, the former Jebusite city. Archaeologically, it is known as the Large Stone Structure. To this point, only about 20 percent of David’s palace has been excavated. Yet already, massive walls are visible, one of which is more than 20 feet wide. The Jucal (Jehucal) and Gedaliah bullae were discovered inside the walls of the palace of David.

4. Nehemiah’s Wall A large stone tower stands adjacent to the eastern wall of King David’s palace. Until recently, archaeologists believed the tower was built during the Hasmonean dynasty, in the first or second century b.c. Over the years, this tower has degenerated and showed signs that it may collapse. In the summer of 2007, Dr. Mazar and her team were assigned the task of repairing the tower.

What started as a simple assignment quickly became a six-week excavation, resulting in some fascinating discoveries. Under the tower, Dr. Mazar’s team discovered the bones of two large dogs, and under those bones, a rich assemblage of pottery and finds from the Persian period—the sixth and fifth centuries b.c.

This means that the tower was constructed during the middle of the Persian period—the exact time that the Bible records Nehemiah building his famous wall around Jerusalem (Nehemiah 3-6).
