In 1979 Dr. Gabriel Barkay made a remarkable discovery in Jerusalem. An ancient tomb was unearthed containing two tiny scrolls of thin, silver sheets. Although less than one inch long by half an inch wide, they contained these Hebrew words inscribed upon them: “Jehovah bless you and keep you; Jehovah make His face to shine upon you and give you peace.” Not just a nice thought, these are a direct quote from Num. 6:24-26. The tiny scrolls were dated to before the Babylonian captivity (600 B.C.). Liberal scholars say the Bible cannot possibly have been written down until long after the captivity. These tiny scrolls blow that theory away. They also prove Scripture was written down much earlier than previously thought. These scrolls are some 400 years older than the Dead Sea Scrolls, previously the oldest manuscripts in existence. Every archaeological discovery verifies the Bible and not one has ever proven the Bible to be false. And, they never will.
