Infographic: Seal Artifacts Identifying Biblical Persons
The following infographic visualizes some of my research on Hebrew seals and Bullae of the Iron Age royal court. Basically, I used formal verification criteria modeled in Lawrence J. Mykytiuk's doctoral thesis, Identifying Biblical Persons in Northwest Semitic Inscriptions and determined that of the thousands of seals and seal impressions discovered in the archeological record which ones we can say with confidence identify individuals named in the Hebrew Bible.
