An archaeologist claimed in an interview published in late June that he has identified the ancient Biblical site where Sodom once stood.
Trinity Southwest University’s Dean of Archaeology Steven Collins told host of the Rosenberg Report, Joel C. Rosenberg, that he and his team believe the Tell el-Hammam site in Jordan appears to have many of the markers of Sodom. The site is reportedly scattered with Bronze-age remains that appear to have been melted in a “flash heat” situation, matching the Biblical account of how Sodom burned to the ground.
“As soon as we get a few centimeters into that [Bronze Age] matrix, this piece of pottery, the shoulder of a storage jar, is facing up at us. And it looks like it’s glazed,” Collins told Rosenberg. Another member of Collins’ team remarked that the scars looked similar to those witnessed at the Trinity nuclear test site in New Mexico where the first atomic bomb was detonated.
Previous reports on the site suggest that the site was decimated by a meteor-impact some 4,000-years-ago. This cataclysm has yet to be confirmed, but evidence shows a “charcoal-rich destruction layer” and a series of melted objects, according to a study published in Nature.
The study suggested that the site was “wiped out in the blink of an eye,” Collins noted.
He went on to claim that “there are at least 25 known pieces of geography [in Scripture] that you can triangulate between to take you to the city of Sodom.” For example, Genesis 13:10 states that when Lot was at Bethel and Ai, he traveled eastwards. Tall el-Hammam is east of Bethel and Ai.
The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
