Gabriel’s Revelation

In this free eBook, discover the meaning of the inscription of “Gabriel’s Revelation” on a first-century B.C. “Dead Sea Scroll in Stone.” Read the original English translation of “Gabriel’s Revelation” along with the article that made scholars around the world reconsider links between ancient Jewish and Christian messianism.

By Ada Yardeni and Israel Knohl

The whole world is talking about “Gabriel’s Revelation.” Israel Museum curators have called it the most important document found in the area since the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls.

The script dates to the turn of the era—just like a Dead Sea Scroll. The inked writing is laid out in prepared columns—just like a Dead Sea Scroll. The text contains Bible-like prophecies—just like some of the Dead Sea scrolls. But this document isn’t a “scroll” at all—it’s a stone slab!

This FREE eBook shares the two definitive publications on an artifact that has led Biblical archaeologists to reconsider ancient Jewish perceptions of messianic figures. Published just in time for the Israel Museum exhibit “I Am Gabriel” A Scroll in Stone from the Time of Herod, this eBook provides translations and contexts for the artifact and contemporary belief systems.

Ada Yardeni’s Biblical Archaeology Review article “A New Dead Sea Scroll in Stone” was the first publication of an English translation of the artifact in 2008. Later that year, Israel Knohl’s BAR follow-up “The Messiah Son of Joseph” caused an enormous stir, as Knohl deciphered a line reading “In three days, you shall live.” Knohl understood these lines from “Gabriel’s Revelation” to mean “in three days, you shall return to life (be resurrected).” Knohl’s translation and discussion, reprinted in full in this FREE eBOOK, have been a subject of recent discussion in international publications from The Telegraph to Fox News.

Knohl’s translation of the first-century B.C. inscription on “Gabriel’s Revelation”—and its revelations on Jewish messianism—pre-date the life of Jesus. What does “Gabriel’s Revelation” tell us about the Jewish concept of a messiah leading up to the life of Jesus? Download this FREE BAS eBOOK to read Ada Yardeni’s analysis of the artifact, and Israel Knohl’s discussion of the Jewish origins of a suffering Messiah and resurrection on the third day.

    Again, the menstrual cycle. Blood, a period of three days, new life. The festival of ishtar! EASTRE, ESTAR, EASTER.

    Bible Prophecy SEVENTY WEEKS
    While Daniel was praying, Jehovah sent his angel Gabriel with a prophecy Da 9:24-27 that nearly all Bible commentators accept as Messianic, though there are many variations in their understanding of it. Gabriel said:

    “Not one word out of all the good words that Jehovah your God has spoken to you has failed. They have all come true for you. Not one word of them has failed.”

    This is corroborating proof that the story of Jesus was pre-dated by an earlier messianic story originating from the area from which the Dead Sea Scrolls emerged prior to the birth of Jesus. This same area was the place from which John the Baptist emerged. The story of Jesus and this story on this ancient tablet, pre-dating Jesus, highlights the Messiah opposing Roman occupation, the death of the Messiah and the resurrection after three days.

    Steve. There are many messianic prophecies in the Old Testament including isaiah 53. They all refer to JESUS Christ. In fact daniel states messiah had to come and die before the destruction of the 2nd temple which was in 70 AD. There are prophecies of the suffering servant concerning His first coming and as messiah ben David— the lion of the tribe of Judah— those are the prophecies yet to soon be fulfilled. Not two people but one person two comings. God bless
