 TOMB OF PROPHET ZECHARIAH FOUND?

Israeli archaeologists unveiled on Wednesday the remnants of a newly discovered Byzantine-era church they suspect is concealing the tomb of the biblical prophet Zechariah...

...Zechariah is associated with the book of the Old Testament that refers to four horsemen and other visions prefiguring the coming of God in judgment.

I find it interesting that this particular tomb is found at this late hour...because the "day of the Lord" is at hand.

Jimmy, I knew that...

My comment was a play off of Enid's. Get it?

Talking about the flood, I have a question for you, Jimmy, or anyone else who has a thought on it - warning! a rabbit trail coming up!

Ever wonder why there appears to be no physical evidences of a civilization before the flood? Or, was the flood that destructive? These question drift through my mind occasionally, not that it troubles me, just curious.

Time dilation.

You are dealing with a God who controls space and time...and anything is possible to Him.

Even humans can control the flow of time (slow it down or speed it up)

Einstein's theory. E=MC^2

God made time pass at a much greater rate outside the Ark and kept the Ark in a static shell if you will, so that time passed at its normal rate inside the Ark. I cannot prove this of course, but it is what I think.

 Re:

Yes ginny, I got your humor :-)

As far as the flood... well... when you have lots and lots of water, things tend to get pretty violent pretty quickly. I imagine the flood would've clean whatever primitive landscape existed at the time. The Scriptures suggest that perhaps the mountains were re-fashioned during this time as well.

But perhaps all the old cave paintings and tools we find in layers of mud are evidence of the old world. But such is a tricky subject, especially since science doesn't agree that there was ever a global flood.

Personally, I think this is cool! I used to get the magazine, "Biblical Archeology," I always looked forward to the mail!

They did say that, "they suspect is concealing," they don't know for sure but I'd like to know the reason they "suspect" it's his tomb!!!

God bless and thanks for posting,
Lisa

Maybe they will find Enoch and Elijah at the same time :-)

Their ignorance always amazes me, I found a fossilized shell on a really high place in Montana one time.

Additionally, I've never seen a fish tank with water one level on one side and another level on another, see how ridiculous it is?

:-)

In Christ,
Earl
