Seal of Jeremiah Persecutor Found

From The Trumpet comes word that archaeology has uncovered the seal of one of the men who had the Hebrew prophet Jeremiah imprisoned for his prophecy of doom against Jerusalem.

One of Jeremiah’s accusers, Gedaliah the son of Pashur, had his name stamped on a small clay seal that was recently discovered about 600 feet south of the Temple Mount. Dr. Eilat Mazar, one of Israel’s top archaeologists, found the bulla earlier this year, in mint condition, while wet-sifting debris excavated under a tower at the north end of the City of David—the original site of ancient Jerusalem.

Archaeology is continually finding evidence of the truth of the Bible's claims. The scientific statements of the Bible are being found to match up with research, as are the historic claims.

Only where biased assumptions, such as ones that claim everything could have come from nothing without an outside cause, are made is there the appearance of inconsistency.

Voltaire's prediction over 200 years ago that "One hundred years from my day there will not be a Bible in the earth except one that is looked upon by an antiquarian curiosity seeker" has fallen a little flat.

A book that has withstood such monumental attempts to wipe it out, and such prolific and sustained attempts to discredit it, might be something worth taking a second look at, if you're a non-believer.

Some new archeological validation of the historical reliability of the Bible seems a weekly event. But why should we be surprised? The Bible has accurately foretold hundreds of historical events centuries beforehand; I suppose we could expect it to be accurate concerning contemporaneous events.
