  Qeiyafa Ostracon Prophecy
Amid all the understandable fuss about the possible consequences of the finds at Khirbet Qeiyafa, and in particular the enigmatic ostracon, one fact has been overlooked by all.

The finding of the ostracon was prophecied by scholars at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (on a page at http://qeiyafa.huji.ac.il/index.asp months before the event!

The image here shows a fragment of the writing, which chronicles in detail the finding and partial or false publications of its finding even giving often precise dates, all in a webpage copyrighted in 2007. This is a miracle! What a shame that the page does not continue beyond this month... then we'd all know what the ostracon reads even before it is deciphered ;) In the meanwhile I plan to wait for more information before I speculate too much...

  Thin King Blog!
Well, there's this meme, started by some guy at www.TheThinKingBlog.com and thanks to Tyler I got tagged.Apparently because I'm contrarian, so of course I'm making the start of this acceptance speech as contrarian as possible. I even linked to Tyler's post with the word contrarian in the link text, do you think this will get me hits from all those millions searching Google for a contrarian blog? Even though there is already a blog with the name: The Contrarian!

But in the end I'm so conventional, and here's my list of five of the blogs that make me think (for some of the others see the sidebar lists!):
And that about wraps it up... I've got in the required link to The Thin King, I've (in a contrarian way) thanked Tyler - more seriously to be given this meme by Tyler is a great honour, because his blog is among the consistently best Biblical Studies focused blogs around. Now, I'll just retire to the after function party ;-)
