The Divine Name — YHWH — at Mt. Gerizim

I have posted on my web site some images of the archaeological remains that have been excavated on Mount Gerizim—the Samaritan’s holy mountain.

In addition to the images of the archaeological remains, I have posted three images of inscriptions, among many,  that were found on Mount Gerizim and that are now on display in the Good Samaritan(!) Inn Museum—on the road from Jerusalem to Jericho.

One of these stone inscriptions actually contains the divine name Yhwh in Paleo-Hebrew script and might be of interest to some of you.

Changes: Nebi Samwil, Jacob’s Well, Mount Gerizim

On our current trip to Israel I have noted a few changes (that may be “old news” to some of you) but I thought I would mention them.

The staircase to the roof of Nebi Samwil is now open—after being shut for a number of years—you can see the Dome of the Rock from here.

We can now take pictures at Jacob’s Well in Nablus—in my experience this was not permitted previously.

And then, students always seem to inject some surprises along the way!
