You Won’t Believe Where This Ancient Ten Commandments Carving Was Found
A boulder inscribed with a Hebrew translation of the Ten Commandments was reportedly found in the last place people may expect: America.
It is said to be the oldest known Ten Commandments written in Hebrew.
The controversial carving is located west of Los Lunas, New Mexico, at the bottom of what is called the “Hidden Mountain.”
The 80-ton boulder, which is still being called a “mystery stone,” a “”Phoenician Inscription Rock,” or “Mystery Rock,” contains the text of the Ten Commandments written in ancient Paleo-Hebrew.
“This form of Hebrew writing was used for approximately one thousand years and fell into disuse around 500 B.C.,” explained Roni Segal, an academic adviser with eTeacher, an online language academy.
