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...
