    Archaeologists in Israel say that they have found a clay seal mark that may bear the signature of the Biblical Prophet Isaiah.

    The 2,700-year-old stamped clay artifact was found during an excavation at the foot of the southern wall of Jerusalem’s Temple Mount. In ancient times a seal stamp, or bulla, was used to authenticate documents or items.

    “We found the eighth-century B.C.E. seal mark that may have been made by the prophet Isaiah himself only 10 feet away from where we earlier discovered the highly-publicized bulla of King Hezekiah of Judah,” said Dr. Eilat Mazar of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, in a statement.

    The half-inch wide oval-shaped piece of clay is inscribed with the name Yesha’yah[u] (Isaiah) in ancient Hebrew script. This is followed by the word nvy, the end of which is slightly damaged. As a result, experts do not know whether the word ended with the Hebrew letter aleph. That letter “would have resulted in the Hebrew word for ‘prophet’ and would have definitively identified the seal as the signature of the prophet Isaiah,” explained Dr. Mazar. “The absence of this final letter, however, requires that we leave open the possibility that it could just be the name Navi.”

    There’s more to the article if anyone wants to read it I just posted it to see what everyone has to say about it


    Faux News is state media.

    Wow, if you don’t know what CNN is you’re really lost


    I am wondering why do I find this story so interesting.
    I know the נביא ישעיהו lived in ארץ ישראל וירושלים בזמן הבית
    There is an entire ספר in נביאים just for him recording some of his life and works.
    As to the seal? The גמרא tells us there were millions of נביאים and בן נביאים so why is it a stretch to think there was another נביא called ישעיהו
    And if it was really his would he really sign his name ישעיה נביא ? Is that like ”Alexander the great ”?


    @coffeeaddict, If you mean CNN, that stands for Cable News Network. And is Faux News talking about the Malaysian plane?


    To me, anytime archaeologists find an artifact anywhere it’s interesting , especially in EY,
    even if it belonged to someone other than Yeshaya.

    Maybe some day Communist No-News ( all faux) network WILL find untouched-up artifacts of the Malaysian airliner, who knows?

    From Fox News

    Bible scholars believe the legendary Ark of the Covenant may have landed in Africa after it was taken out of Israel.

    The Ark is said to be a gold-covered wooden chest containing two stone tablets on which the Ten Commandments – which Moses brought down from Mount Sinai – are written.

    Since it vanished there have been several theories as to where the Ark is now, including Mount Nebo in Israel, southern Africa, Ethiopia, Egypt and even several locations in Europe.

    While the idea that the Ark was taken to Ethiopia is not new, there has been renewed interest after evidence was unearthed by the Bible Archaeology, Search & Exploration Institute (BASE).

    Christian monks in the African country have long claimed the Ark is being kept under guard at the Church of Our Lady Mary of Zion in Axum.

    In a blog post on the organization’s website it said: “As unusual as this may sound, the BASE team has uncovered compelling evidence that the Ark may well have been spirited up the Nile River to an eventual resting place in the remote highlands of ancient Kush — modern-day Ethiopia.”

    According to their research, the Ark was taken out of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem during the reign of Manasseh, where it was first taken to a Jewish colony on Elephantine Island in Egypt.

    After that, it is thought it was taken down the Nile to Lake Tana in Ethiopia and in particular Tana Kirkos Island, which is considered to be a holy island only populated by Christian monks.

    From there the Ark was moved to Axum, or Aksum, a city in the north of the country.

    The BASE Institute claims to have spoken to a man at the church who was “The Guardian of the Ark of the Covenant” and who spent his life inside a fenced-off area surrounding the church and claimed he would not leave the compound until he died and a new guardian took over the role.

    The man claimed he was the only person who could look on the Ark because it was a holy object and he and the villagers would protect it with their lives, if necessary.

    When an investigator from the Smithsonian approached the guardian in 2007, he was told: “I’m the guardian of the Ark, I have no other name.”

    While the BASE Institute did not claim the Ark had been found, it did say: “At this juncture, we cannot say with certainty that it is, but neither can we say for certain that it isn’t. What we have concluded is that St. Mary’s of Zion church in Axum, Ethiopia, is the resting place either of an incredible replica of the biblical Ark of the Covenant, or of the actual Ark of the Covenant itself.”



    Very cool


    But isn’t our tradition that it was hidden under the kosel? In fact they didn’t even have it for the second beis Hamikdash because it was hidden underneath on har hayis before the first churban?

    Sorry Mr mod,

    I didn’t realize it would be considered a link


    CS, do you really think that a bunch of nonsense spouted by some missionary group is “cool”?
    Of course our mesora differs from this.



    It’s actually a Machlokes Tanayim.

    See Yoma 53b:

    The Mishna said:
    משניטל ארון אבן היתה שם מימות נביאים ראשונים ושתייה היתה

    The Gemara says there:

    משנגנז לא קתני אלא משניטל תנן כמאן דאמר ארון גלה לבבל דתניא רבי אליעזר אומר ארון גלה לבבל שנאמר (דברי הימים ב לו, י) ולתשובת השנה שלח המלך נבוכדנאצר ויביאהו בבלה עם כלי חמדת בית ה’ רבי שמעון בן יוחאי אומר ארון גלה לבבל שנאמר (ישעיהו לט, ו) לא יותר דבר אמר ה’ אלו עשרת הדברות שבו רבי יהודה (בן לקיש) אומר ארון במקומו נגנז שנאמר (מלכים א ח, ח) ויראו ראשי הבדים מן הקדש על פני הדביר ולא יראו החוצה ויהיו שם עד היום הזה ופליגא דעולא דאמר עולא שאל רבי מתיא בן חרש את רבי שמעון בן יוחאי ברומי וכי מאחר שרבי אליעזר מלמדנו פעם ראשונה ושניה ארון גלה לבבל ראשונה הא דאמרן (דברי הימים ב לו, י) ויביאהו בבלה עם כלי חמדת בית ה’ שניה מאי היא דכתיב (איכה א, ו) ויצא מבת ציון כל הדרה מאי כל הדרה חדרה אתה מאי אתה אומר אמר לו שאני אומר ארון במקומו נגנז שנאמר ויאריכו הבדים וגו’

    אמר רב נחמן תנא וחכמים אומרים ארון בלשכת דיר העצים היה גנוז אמר רב נחמן בר יצחק אף אנן נמי תנינא מעשה בכהן אחד שהיה מתעסק וראה רצפה משונה מחברותיה ובא והודיע את חבירו ולא הספיק לגמור את הדבר עד שיצתה נשמתו וידעו ביחוד ששם ארון גנוז מאי הוה עביד אמר רבי חלבו מתעסק בקרדומו היה תנא דבי רבי ישמעאל שני כהנים בעלי מומין היו מתליעין בעצים ונשמטה קרדומו של אחד מהם ונפלה שם ויצתה אש ואכלתו
