VFTB 4/10/22: Dr. Doug Petrovich – A Hebrew Inscription from the Conquest of Canaan

Lachish Milk Bowl Ostracon

A PIECE of broken pottery connects the Israelites to the destruction of a city immediately after Joshua’s “long day.”

Archaeologist and epigrapher Dr. Douglas Petrovich, author of Origins of the Hebrews and The World’s Oldest Alphabet, joins us to discuss his new paper on the Lachish Milk Bowl Ostracon, a potsherd he calls a sort of ceramic business card—with writing he describes as a “proto-consonantal alphabetic script.”

Doug explains why this bit of ceramic is more proof that Hebrew is the world’s oldest alphabet.

After the break: Was Russia’s invasion of Ukraine inspired by “Putin’s Rasputin”?
