More and more discoveries are being made that bring the Bible to life. Pontius Pilate’s ring was found in 2018, and now they have found an inscription speaking of him in an Egyptian amethyst mine.
The discovery, made at Wadi el-Hudi, was among other inscriptions. The mine fed the massive demand for amethyst in Egypt, where people loved the purple stone. Being that the mines were in Southern Egypt, the opposite side of the country that is close to Israel, it serves as evidence of Pilate’s reach and notoriety.
The history of the Bible gets clearer and more vibrant every day!
