12 Ways to Turn Your Pain into Praise

Sapphires from Psalms

Better Than Jewels

Here is another story for you PROVING that what is written in the Bible actually happened. I love this stuff! I hope you are enjoying it. Let me know…Does it build your faith and strengthen your case for Christ when the Bible is verified by archeology and science?

Leonard Woolley was an archeologist and a contemporary of T.E. Lawrence, Lawrence of Arbia (Awesome epic movie with Pete O’toole and Omar Sharif.) In September 1922,  he was on his was to Barsa in present day Iraq to lead and expedition for the British Museum and the University of Pennsylvania to the ancient cite of Ur the birthplace of Abraham. It is burial site for many Sumerian Royals, a non-Jewish culture that formed a series of city-states in the area known as Mesopotamia between the Tigris and Euphrates. It was there that Woolley found tombs, the inside of which contained paintings depicting ancient Sumerian culture.
In a telegram to the University of Pennsylvania, couched in Latin to protect his news from interception he wrote, “I found the intact tomb, of Queen Puabi, adorned in a dress interwoven with gems, flower crown, animal figures. Tomb was filled with magnificent jewels and golden cups.”

Queen Puabi’s 4500 year old body was preserved with items of gold, silver and an intricately carved cylindrical seal which served to confirm her identity. Unearthed was another seal, less stirring in its simple coin-like form, which was misunderstood by Woolley and labeled, “Aramaic.” Later comparison with ancient texts gave these characters a better-informed interpretation. It was inscribed with, ”chemosh-nathan,” the name of its owner. The first part of the name is the name of the God worshipped; the second part is the verb meaning, “he is given.” So its owner had worshiped Chemosh and lived in Ur in the 7th century BC. Just as Yahweh was called the God of the Hebrews, Chemosh was described as the God of the Moabites who inhabited Ur.

Again proof that the stories in Scripture are not someone’s fanciful imaginings but they actually happened!

Yes Linda. Keep these proofs coming! I love how science, archeology and anthropology prove truths of the scripture. Although we believe in faith, this is critical information for us to share with non-believers. Thank you for your nonstop research and growth!

So, Linda, Chemosh must have been the god Ruth was raised to worship? At any rate, very interesting. I love this stuff, so keep it coming, lady.
