A piece of roughly 3,100-year-old writing containing the name of a figure mentioned as one of the judges in the Old Testament has been discovered.
Five letters that appear to represent the name Jerubbaal were found on a piece of pottery discovered in Southern Israel among other finds dating somewhere between the 11th and 12th centuries B.C., according to an article published in the Jerusalem Journal of Archaeology.
Researchers said the pot was unearthed in 2019 at Khirbet er-Ra‘i, near Kiryat Gat in the Southern District of Israel.
