Ritual vessel with mysterious inscription found in Jerusalem

Published on July 31st, 2009 | by Admin


An earthenware vessel, from the time of Jesus Christ, bearing a mysterious inscription has been found at a dig in Jerusalem.

“It is possible that this type of vessel was used by Jesus to wash his hands before eating,” said Shimon Gibson, author of the recently published “The Final Days of Jesus — The Archaeological Evidence.”

The letters, either ancient Hebrew or Aramaic, are legible though the meaning of the 10 lines of text is yet to be deciphered, according to Gibson who heads the University of North Carolina team conducting the dig.
