I find this very find very exciting and could unite the Jews with Christianity and maybe others but I`m just wishing I guess but it is an awesome
here some part of the find.
The tablet consists of two partially-preserved columns of Hebrew text. The first column describes the breaking of evil by righteousness:
"By three days you shall know that, thus said the Lord of Hosts, the God of Israel, the evil has been broken by righteousness."
This text is reminiscent of the passage from Daniel, which declares that the Messiah will "make an end of sin, to make atonement for iniquity, to
bring in everlasting righteousness."4 The text of Gabriel's Vision goes on to describe the timing of this event as in being "in just a little
In just a little while, I will shake the heavens and the earth.
Since the dating of this tablet has been set to the late first century B.C., this "little while" would have been just a few years before the birth
of Jesus, described in the Bible as being at the time of king Herod (who died in 4 B.C.).5 The text goes on the make Messianic allusions:
My servant David, ask of Ephraim (that he) place the sign; (this) I ask of you.
At the time of the writing of the Gabriel's vision, David had been dead for 1,000 years, so, obviously, the text does not refer directly to David.
However, in the prophetic passages of the Bible (e.g., Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel), the text often refers to "My servant David" as King David's
descendant and the Messiah to come.6 According to Jeremiah, the Messiah is the "righteous Branch" of David, who will be known as "The LORD our
righteousness,"7 which goes along with the text listed above. Line 80 begins with the phrase "by three days" followed by the word "to live" or
"be resurrected" , with the source being the angel "I, Gabriel" . Because of the poor preservation of the text, the object of the command is not
clear. However, the next line contains the phrase "prince of princes" . Elsewhere in the prophetic passages of the old testament, Messiah is known
as "Prince of Peace."8 Daniel defines Messiah as "Messiah the Prince"9 and makes direct reference to him as the "prince of princes."10 Given the
significance of the Messianic nature of the text, and the juxtaposition of "prince of princes" to Gabriel's command, it would not be unreasonable
to think that the resurrected one would be the Messiah. So, the likely translation would be "By three days, live, I Gabriel, command you, prince of
the princes." Therefore, this stone strongly supports the New Testament's claim that Jesus is the Messiah who died for the sins of the people11 and
rose again the third day.12
