An Ancient Hebrew Inscription

Oldest Hebrew Text Uncovered By Israeli Archaeologists is the title of an article appearing at Red Orbit. The article cites the discovery of a piece of pottery said to be 3,000 years old which contains an inscription in Hebrew. There is much significance to the find because it is very good evidence that the ancient Israelites were literate. This in turn makes it plausible to assume that Biblical accounts could have been recorded in writing as well as preserved through an oral tradition. Written recordings made soon after the occurences of described events would be evidence against the contention that events were mythological.
