- First Judaism, which started with one leader, Abraham and ended up as strong monarchies with Jerusalem as the religious and political capital.
- Then Christianity is invented which was an attempt to supplant/replace Judaism, which is why its bible is called the "new" sic testament, rather than just the Christian Bible. It claims to be a continuation of the Jewish Bible.
- After that Islam is invented, and with the aim to replace both Judaism and Christianity. It adopts/stolen early Jewish History and major figures.
Carved Stone Block Upends Assumptions About Ancient Judaism
Yael Yolovich/Israel Antiquities Authority
But what makes the stone such a rare find in biblical archaeology, according to scholars, is that when it was carved, the Second Temple still stood in Jerusalem for the carver to see. The stone is a kind of ancient snapshot.
And it is upending some long-held scholarly assumptions about ancient synagogues and their relationship with the Temple, a center of Jewish pilgrimage and considered the holiest place of worship for Jews, during a crucial period, when Judaism was on the cusp of the Christian era.
Even a superficial reading of the Jewish Bible will point out that places of Jewish worship existed all over the Land of Israel during Biblical times, whether sanctioned or not. The split in the Kingdom into Judea and Israel was strengthen by the building of an alternative worship at the time when there was a Jewish Holy Temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.
I find this paragraph just too ridiculous for words.
In contrast to the current tensions over the contested site in Jerusalem that is revered by Jews as the Temple Mount, where the ancient temples once stood, and by Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary, the Magdala project has emphasized religious harmony. The land belongs to a Roman Catholic religious order, the Legionaries of Christ, and the archaeologists who are managing the dig and who found the stone are Dina Avshalom-Gorni, an Israeli Jew, and Arfan Najar, a Muslim.We all know that the Vatican stole land and artifacts, and that is why the stone was discovered there. I'm waiting for them to admit it and return it all to the Jewish People and the State of Israel!!
