Teresa Neumann : Aug 4, 2008  Nadav Shragai - Haaretz

"Only rarely do archeologists come across findings of significant figures in history, which help lift the dust of history and bring the Biblical story to life in such a tangible way."

(Jerusalem)—Another ancient seal has been unearthed in Jerusalem by a team of Israeli archaeologists. Carried out under the auspices of the Hebrew University, the seal is said to be one that belonged to King Zedekiah. The find was said to corroborate the Biblical story of one of the king's ministers demanding the prophet Jeremiah be killed.

Ancient SealAccording to the report in Haaretz, "the seal impression, or bulla, with the name Gedalyahu ben Pashur, who served as minister to King Zedekiah (597-586 BC)... was found completely intact just meters away from a separate seal impression of another of Zedekia's ministers, Yehukual ben Shelemyahu, which was unearthed three years ago."

"Only rarely do archeologists come across findings of significant figures in history, which help lift the dust of history and bring the Biblical story to life in such a tangible way," said Professor Eilat Mazar of the Hebrew University, noting that the newly discovered seal is very clearly preserved.
