    Does Archaeology Verify The Bible?

    Dr. Heinz Lycklama


    .....The Ebla Tablets

    Discovered in Northern Syria beginning in 1964

    Excavations made at the site of Tell Mardikh, ancient Ebla

    Ebla was at the height of its power in 2300 B.C. with a population of 260,000, with 11,000 civil servants

    Names of 5000+ cities mentioned

    Includes names of many Biblical cities such as Salem, Gaza, Lachish, Ashdod, etc.

    Destroyed in 2250 B.C. by a grandson of Sargon the Great


    @ Dr. Heinz Lycklama

    Where is Ebla?

    Ebla
    Damascus
    Ruins of Ebla’s Royal Palace

    Clay Tablet at Ebla



    @ Dr. Heinz Lycklama

    The Ebla Tablets - 2

    17,000+ tablets unearthed from era of Ebla Kingdom since 1974

    Early critics did not think that writing was prevalent at the time of Moses

    Recent digs in northern Syria (Ebla in mid 1970’s) have verified that man had writing skills early on, even at the time of the patriarchs (~ 2500 BC)

    Patriarchs were able to record events on tablets

    Most writing was in Sumerian language, some in Eblaite, their own Semitic language using the same Sumerian script


    @ Dr. Heinz Lycklama

    The Ebla Tablets - 3

    Shows evidence of writing 1000 years before the time of Moses

    Customs and events were recorded in writing in the same area of the world where Moses and the patriarchs lived

    Gen. 14 refers to the five cities of the Plain (Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah,, Zeboiim, Zoar), verified by Ebla archives

    The area flourished before the catastrophe recorded in Genesis 14

    We now know about early writing systems such as Egyptian hieroglyphics, Ugartic cunieform script, proto-Siniatic hieroglyphic script, and Hittite hieroglyphic system....
