Ancient Hebrew Seals Found

Recommended Posts

I found this interesting. https://www.algemeiner.com/2017/09/06/ancient-hebrew-seals-from-judean-kingdom-unearthed-in-jerusalem-excavations/ 

Several of the seals are emblazoned with Hebrew inscriptions, and dozens of the ancient seals reference the names of officials from the Judean kingdom who lived before the Babylonian destruction of Jerusalem, including “Pinchas” and “Achiav ben Menachem.”

The seals, which are small pieces of clay used to close letters, were well-preserved due the raging fires ignited in the holy city by the invading armies of Babylon thousands of years ago.

The accompanying video remarks that many of the names are apparently of refugees who came to Jerusalem from the Northern Kingdom.  Thus, since the ancestors of Lehi and Laban probably came from that Nothern Kingdom, we might want to examine those names of evidence of Book of Mormon names.  Other Israelite bullae (seal impressions in clay) have been found in the past with Book of Mormon names thereon.

Any mention of Lehi, Nephi or Laban?

Lehi, as a merchant , might have had seals for his correspondence. Laban, as an official also might have had some. Nephi , on the other hand , as a youth of about 16 would not( unless he was an Olympic swimming champion or some such ). But hey, thanks for the drive-by cake anyway!
