Backgrounders on the Bible through Biblical Archaeology

1104 – The Seal of Queen Jezebel


One scholar believes that a seal found 40 years ago is the royal seal of the wife of King Ahab. But not everyone agrees. Nonetheless, there was only one Jezebel in history, so anything remotely connected with her is compelling.

The story can be found in the Jerusalem Post and Haaretz. There’s also scholarly reaction from Chris Rollston of the Emmanuel School of Religion.

Also, there’s breaking news from the Temple Mount. See details in this article from National Geographic. As I often say, there’s always something going on in Biblical Archaeology.
