Seems that some believe this Gabriel stone could have been written around the time when Hebrew was not even spoken , but Aramaic, and Galilean languages were spoken , as God would know all languages for His messenger Holy angels host , Still the Temple in Jerusalem was profaned by Antiochus Epiphanes hundred sixty years BC and the Romans in 70 AD

To the very interesting gentlemen
I have finally found my peace with God. I love how you end it with..."why does it bother you that something gives us strength and hope"...that is a perfect answer and message. I have atheist friends and that`s the way I will settle any discussion. ..thank you sir for the encouraging words. Godspeed....

Something more to consider
Retired professor and university dean, Stan Seidner contends in "The Knohl Hypothesis and `Hazon Gabriel,`" that it reflects the Apocalyptic beliefs of the day, many which are found in the Dead Sea Scrolls, as antecedent and predictive writings of Christianity. He also suggested the use of infra-red technological applications, similar to what had been utilized on Dead Sea Scroll Material in the recent past. Challenging Knohl`s "Two Messiahs" theory, Seidner noted that, "Knohl’s reliance upon what he calls, the `Glorification Hymn,` in support of a first Messiah’s relationship with King Herod, failed in its Carbon 14 testing. It predates Herod’s ascendency to the throne by at least twelve years and as much as one hundred and fifty six." However, he does agree with Knohl`s interpretation of the inscription,"to rise from the dead within three days."

You`re overlooking something
Have you ever read Hosea 6:2? 2 After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight. This verse isn`t about a messiah. This is about Ephraim (The Kingdom of Israel). Hosea spends a lot of time talking about how Israel (Not Judah. Judah is still there.) will be restored. 4 O Ephraim, what shall I do unto thee? O Judah, what shall I do unto thee? for your goodness is as a morning cloud, and as the early dew it goeth away. Again, Ephraim, mentioned at the top of the tablet. If this tablet is apoclyptic in nature, then one would expect Israel to be restored. It just makes more sense that way then to insert an idea about a ressurecting messiah. Had it not been for Jesus, no one would be saying any-thing about someone coming back from the dead.

Filling in the blank spots...
It would be interesting to lay the text from the stone out in the Gematria form (numeric) and see if there is a patttern to it. This may help fill in the blanks. Is there a Hassid in the house ?

Very Interesting
Very interesting but I am sure not the only one. As for the gentleman referring to this as old gobildegook I also remember Einstien in later years referencing a possible higher being or creator. So please if you don`t believe that is fine but leave the rest of us alone. Why does it offend you so much for us to believe in something positive that gives us strength and hope?

Gabriel`s Revealation
It sounds alot like Zechariah actually. As to the contention that 3 days and nights then a resurrection is a Christian invention, Yeshua himself said," As Jonah...

Will the world ever move forward
Now I realise what Albert Einstien meant when he spoke of superstitious nonsense,I`m sorry but there is nothing enlightning in a load of old gobildegook
