Backgrounders on the Bible through Biblical Archaeology

1135 – The "Gabriel’s Vision" inscription


A rare 2,000-year old inscription, written in ink on stone, is starting to generate some interest among Bible scholars, especially after one of them said “it will change our concept of Christianity.” It’s been called the “Gabriel’s Vision” inscription, and it’s also been called a Dead Scroll in stone. It dates to the same era and has many stylistic similarities to the Dead Sea Scrolls. To asses its significance, I talked with two of the top New Testament scholars, Darrell Bock of Dallas Theological Seminary and Ben Witherington of Asbury Theological Seminary.
