    "The Ten Tribes living in the Kingdom of Israel during the 8th century B.C.E. practiced a mixed religion, but contrary to the conventional wisdom among biblical scholars, their main deity was Yahweh after all, not the Canaanite god El and his envoys, golden calves and goat-shaped demons." -- Bohstrom, Haaretz Magazine

    Was the worship of "El", or was it "Elohim" (the general name for the true God )? The "conventional wisdom" that the writer attempts to debunk by the archeological evidence is not the only interpretation of the Biblical record. Yes, the prophets condemned synchronism, but the evidence seems to parallel the use of the golden calf in Yahweh evidence in Exodus , lead by none other than Aaron himself. While dancing drunk around t…

    My God, my God, Why have you forsaken me?

    There are some questions that don't make sense until they are asked by the right person. The question penned by David is surely one that many feel in their darkest times--times that cause doubt to arise in even the purest heart. The king, a man loved by Yahweh, found it hard to reconcile much of his trouble with his knowledge of God's loyalty to His promises. But David had proven by his actions at times that he was not worthy of God. He felt himself to be the lowest of the low, an unclean maggot in the garbage dump--a reflection on Psa. 21:31--"He has done it".

    Let us, children of the Living Savior, get the message out. God is Good, All the Time.

    The Great Flood forms one of two distinct dividing points in human history. In fact it is more universal than the Christian calendar that is dependent on deciding an exact date in an ancient culture.  The exit of  humanity from the ark began a restart, dated early on with the birth of the first post-flood son of promise--Arphaxad--at being born in the third year after the flood ("two years after. It could be that with a noontime darkening and and evening sacrifice, the flood was exactly 365.25 days. The prophets would hold on to the idea of a perfect 360 days, and thus reflecting, one might surmise, the world as God made it.

    Foundations or Rubble?

    February 28, 2018 by SouthWriter


    There is a lot of excitement among Christians and Jews on a recent archaeological find . Several months ago, a dig in Jerusalem came upon the seal of Hezekiah, king of Judah . It was as clear as the text of 2 Kings and Isaiah. Then, when all the excitement of the undeniable confirmation of the historicity of this king was accepted by the world at large, a seal found ten feet away is revealed to be that of an "Isaiah, NBI[..]".

    The reason that they took their time on revealing this was the seal of this Isaiah was because a letter was missing , leaving an uncertainty as to whether the title was NBIA ("prophet ") was indicated. Could there be another Isaiah in the court of Hezechiah? Could a person from the town of Nob (a "Nobi", or Nobite) ha…
