On October 24, 2013, Emmaus Bible College (Dubuque, IA) will sponsor a lecture delivered by Dr. Gabriel Barkay, Professor of Archaeology at Bar Ilan University in Tel Aviv, Israel. The title of his lecture is “Discovering the Earliest Verses of the Bible.”
This lecture will detail the archaeological excavation which Gabriel Barkay led and which uncovered the oldest copies of biblical inscriptions ever found. Known as “The Silver Scrolls,” these amulets are inscribed with the priestly benediction from Numbers 6:24-26 and date to the late-7th century B.C.
Emmaus Bible College cordially invites the public to attend this free lecture. Join us Thursday, October 24 from 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm in the Emmaus Auditorium, located at 2570 Asbury Road, Dubuque, IA 52001.
