UPDATE 7/7/2008 at 2:28pm EST: Here is a link to an English translation of the “Gabriel’s Revelation” stone at the Biblical Archaeology Review—English translation (in Microsoft Word). I have also posted the English translation (from Biblical Archaeology Review) in comments below.
This stone tablet, which contains writings dated to the decades before the birth of Christ, is thought by serious scholars of the subject to be a significant discovery.
The tablet itself is not a new discovery–it was purchased 10 years ago from a Jordanian dealer in antiquities by an Israeli/Swiss collector who, while himself an expert on Hebrew antiquities, was unaware of its importance until recently when it was shown to Ada Yardeni, a specialist in Hebrew writing.
“She (Ms Yardeni) was overwhelmed. ‘You have got a Dead Sea Scroll on stone,’ she told me.”
