Science and the Bible dramatically converge to reveal ancient Jerusalem’s most famous king-prophet pairing. In this interactive, multimedia exhibit, visitors discover the illuminating history of how Jerusalem, under the leadership of King Hezekiah and Isaiah, escaped annihilation at the hands of the Assyrians in the eighth century B.C. These sensational artifacts grabbed international headlines when first discovered and now make their world premiere in the Grand Lobby of Armstrong Auditorium.
Unearthed in Jerusalem’s royal palace, two tiny clay seals were found in the same strata of soil just meters apart. They bear the inscriptions “Belonging to Hezekiah, [son of] Ahaz, King of Judah” and “Belonging to Isaiah ...” (believed to be “the prophet”).
For the first time ever, these seals are on display. They are joined by more than 40 artifacts from the time of King Hezekiah, including royal Judean vessels, silver bullion and weapons used during the siege of Lachish. The exhibit includes replicas of the Assyrian wall reliefs of Lachish and the famous Annals of Sennacherib Prism (aka Taylor Prism). Visitors can also walk through a 10-foot-long exact replica of Hezekiah’s underground water tunnel in Jerusalem. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see these artifacts in one location!
