|I wonder if this still rings true?|
A rare bell with a buttonhole from the Second Temple period was found Thursday during an excavation at the Ir David (City of David) National Park, just south of the Old City of Jerusalem. It was found in a drainage canal originating just west of the Western Wall of the Temple.The verses in Exodus 28
Excavation managers Eli Shukrun and Ronny Reich said, "It appears the bell was sewn on the garment of a man of high standing in Jerusalem at the end of the Second Temple period (first century C.E.)." It is known from the biblical book of Exodus that the high priests wore bells like this. While it is not certain that this bell belonged to a high priest, it cannot be ruled out. Here's a pic:
33 And upon the skirts of it thou shalt make pomegranates of blue, and of purple, and of scarlet, round about the skirts thereof; and bells of gold between them round about: 34 a golden bell and a pomegranate, a golden bell and a pomegranate, upon the skirts of the robe round about. 35 And it shall be upon Aaron to minister; and the sound thereof shall be heard when he goeth in unto the holy place before the LORD, and when he cometh out, that he die not.Anyone for denial - or celebration of the historical truth?
