A few people have inquired about the new Khirbet Qeiyafa inscription discovered in the 2012 season. I asked Yossi Garfinkel about it last week when I drove up to Chattanooga (from Tampa!) to catch his presentation at Southern Adventist University. He said they have made good progress on it and may publish something in a few months. He wouldn’t release any details about it during his presentation but told me beforehand that the results are “very interesting.”
I saw the new inscription when it was found last summer. It is from the late-11th/early-10th century Iron Age level at Qeiyafa. It is readable. I’ll post details here as soon as they are released to the public.
Well that’s not much to go on. A second inscription which is legible and ‘interesting’ which won’t be published for several months. No, that’s not at all helpful. (Though to be fair the first inscription wasn’t ‘all that’- being rather both insubstantial and subject to wide ranging readings).
