From the same link above, crwn:


"... Biggs said that it might be 20 years before decent translations are made of the most complicated Ebla tablets, which appear to be written in at least two different languages. One resembles the Sumeria of ancient Mesopotamia: the other resembles nothing previously known.

Of the 11,000 tablets that have been restored, only 48 have been translated and published. These are relatively simple documents confirming commercial trades and transactions. There are some tablets containing as many as 3,000 lines where scholars have made little or no headway reaching a translation ..."


So, a lot more work has to be done yet before that claim can be substantiated:

Ebla Tablets: No Biblical Claims
In your rush to go against the Bible, don't loose sight of the fact that Ebla was a monumental find, whether or not it proves the Bible:


Ebla: Its Impact on Bible Records
by Clifford Wilson, M.A., B.D., Ph.D.

The new findings at Ebla are possibly the most significant discovery yet made so far as they relate to the background of early Bible times. The impact on some areas of Biblical knowledge will indeed be startling.

Ebla Tablets: No Biblical Claims


...it was incredible luck that left the tablets for archeologists to find.The palace whose library contained most of the tablets burned around 2300 B.C. and the fire baked the tablets and preserved them. Unluckily, there appears to be nothing in the tablets suggesting how Ebla disappeared. Most scholars think the city was sacked in 2250 B.C. by Akkadian King Naram-Sim, who killed most of its 30,000 inhabitants ...

Correct, Israel is mentioned only once as you say, in the Merneptah Stela (Stele). And that extra-biblical proof cannot be considered to clarify anything beyond that fact, based on translation issues.

But why would going to Syria for verification be problematic, I'm confused?

Ancient Syria and the Levant is only a stones throw from Egypt, metaphorically speaking. We know Syria's Hebrew name is Aram, and that Syria is derived from Assyria; also, Syria-Damascus, is mentioned 300 times in the Bible.

...

Some of the most documented battles in Egyptian history involve conflict over the area in Syria included in Ka nana which Egypt "controlled by proxy" for over 300 years aka the "promised" land. Both Egyptian and Assyrian history verify this. I'm not saying Syria is not relevant, it's the lamb of Babylon, only that it should only be secondary to information obtained from Egypt and Iraq, where the entire biblical story unfolds. waterbearer.jpg That's like reading a Mexican book to verify that the stories of freed US slaves were true because the US government had no record of it!

“In that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria. The Assyrians will go to Egypt and the Egyptians to Assyria. The Egyptians and Assyrians will worship [the Lord] together. In that day Israel will be the third, along with Egypt and Assyria, a blessing on the earth. The Lord Almighty will bless them, saying, ‘Blessed be Egypt My people, Assyria My handiwork, and Israel My inheritance’” (Is 19:23-25).

Clearly, the jury is still waiting on all of the evidence on both sides so any claims are premature, but ultimately the presence of details that collaborate archaeological sites that should have been well known is neither proof nor disproof of the genealogical reality of the Hebrew characters and events recorded in the bible.

Thank you for expounding more on Syria and where it should rank in terms of information in conjunction with Egypt.

Reading this sparks a question in my mind. If collaborative artifacts, as evidences, aren't enough to prove or disprove the genealogical reality of Hebrews; is there anything that would adequately suffice? And if not, why not?
