Evidence of Biblical Antiquity

The headline of this CBS news item"Science Unlocks Biblical Secrets" sound more impressive than the actual news reported therein. An Israeli found a couple of small silver scrolls that have the Priestly benediction of Number 6 written on them. Now scientists have been able to date them to the 7th century B.C., the earliest dated biblical text. I call this interesting, but not quite the unlocking of "biblical secrets."
