Ancient Biblical Artifacts on Display at the York House

The historic York House of Downtown Pikeville, Kentucky, will be the home of the Khirbet El-Maqatir Biblical Artifacts exhibit. The exhibit opened January 21, 2017, and features over 150 items from ancient Israel, Jordan and the surrounding regions. Some of these artifacts are over 3000 years old, and shine more light on Biblical narratives such as Israel’s struggle against Babylon, to the ministry of Jesus.

What kind of artifacts will be presented?
The collection includes artifacts from the centuries before Abraham, throughout biblical history to the time of Jesus. Some of the highlights include:

  • A cuneiform tablet from the time of Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon
  • An idol from the time of the biblical patriarchs
  • Tiles from the Tenth Roman Legion that destroyed Jerusalem in 70 A.D.
  • Slingstones from the period of biblical kings (think David and Goliath)
  • A 4,000-year-old stone bowl from a site some experts believe is Sodom
  • Oil lamps from the time of Abraham to the time of Jesus
  • Many more examples of artifacts from the biblical period
