More Discoveries to come...

Israel is one giant archaeological dig. Month by month small pieces of the past are found and studied. I do not believe that we will find an autograph of scripture, but we may find something as significant as The Dead Sea Scrolls in the future.

Date seeds from the time of Christ were found at Masada in the 1960's. They were planted. One has germinated and could grow to a fruit producing tree that has not been seen for over 1500 years. To date, those seeds are the oldest to germinate.

As a man of faith, I am not afraid of science, I embrace its discoveries and the endless curiosity that drives the investigative mind. I am not looking for science to prove my faith...I hope it never does. Some things should remain a mystery and require the application of simple faith.

  1. Dude, that is just awesome! That is one of the most interesting things I have read in a long time.
    I love stories like that. That seed really grew after all this time. That is so cool.
    Stay well my friend,
