A chariot linchpin has been found in Israel that appears to date from the time of the book of Judges. The linchpin (a cover over the axle) contains a carved image of a woman, and is being dated at around 1200 BC. The discoverer believes the location is the site of ancient Harosheth Haggoyim, the home town of Sisera, as mentioned in the story of Deborah and Barak in Judges 4-5. For picture and background, see PhysOrg; for interpretation and more links, see Bible Places Blog.It’s always exciting to see artifacts emerge from the sites where Bible stories took place. Many of us learned these stories as children. Artifacts bring details to life and illuminate the setting of the accounts. Archaeology cannot confirm the stories, but can help validate them by showing that they are consistent with independent physical evidence. They also illustrate that the Biblical stories are not myths in a historical void, but took place in space and time. They occurred at named sites that can be visited and checked. This one chariot linchpin says little on its own, but the sum total of artifacts and inscriptions found that are consistent with the Biblical record is compelling, providing added confidence to the reader of Scripture that the Lord has spoken and acted on behalf of those who trust His word.(Visited 54 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0

India’s auto major Mahindra and Mahindra (M&M) is all set to launch its much-awaited multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) Quanto on September 20. The new car expected to pitch in the same space as the Premier Rio SUV is likely to have a price tag of Rs 5 lakh.According to reports, Mahindra’s Quanto SUV ( mini-Xylo) is based on the Xylo platform, and will come with a new three-cylinder twin-turbo diesel engine producing 65PS and wear the same tyres as the Toyota Innova in size. In a media interaction, M&M president, Automotive and Farm Equipment sectors, Pawan Goenka said: “The company is expecting volumes to be around 1,500 to 2, 000 units per month to start with. Capacity wont be a constraint because it could come up on the same line as Scorpio and Xylo. We will have flexibility on what we can produce. It is very unlikely that we will run out of capacity.”About the pricing of the Quanto, Goenka reportedly said that expectation should be realistic as the car is not a small hatchback. “It is after all a sports utility vehicle (SUV),” he added.We are confident that with its unique value proposition, the Quanto will carve out a segment for itself in the market. The Quanto will cater to the needs of young urban India which enjoys an active lifestyle. We expect the Quanto to offer an exciting upgrade at a premium to customers who are otherwise looking for premium diesel hatchbacks or entry level diesel sedans. Trade analysts, who refer to the yet to be launched Quanto as the mini Xylo, expect the pricing of the vehicle to be very competitive.With Agency inputsadvertisement
South African cricket’s many colours mix uneasilyThe Centurion: Its “historical allies” in India may have been dewy eyed at the stirring support in cricket’s Dennessgate crisis, but the United Cricket Board (UCB) of South Africa is coming to live with the realisation that its damage control exercise may end up,South African cricket’s many colours mix uneasilyThe Centurion: Its “historical allies” in India may have been dewy eyed at the stirring support in cricket’s Dennessgate crisis, but the United Cricket Board (UCB) of South Africa is coming to live with the realisation that its damage control exercise may end up doing more damage than anticipated. While UCB officials maintain that they had little choice but to support the Indians due to financial and political pressures, the noises coming from the Board indicate that more rumbling is to follow.In a country where Hansie Cronje’s betrayal was taken very personally, the Johannesburg Star thundered that the UCB had misjudged the situation at every level, including the moral.It had therefore abandoned the right to stand on judgement on any issue anymore. “The UCB has weakened its own stance regarding the Hansie Cronje scandal. The moral rectitude practised now seems rather unconvincing. It has undermined the position of a governing body of the sport to such an extent that any future pleas will seem almost laughable,” wrote the daily. Many believe that the current chorus of disapproval of the UCB’s actions is part of a campaign targeted at the new UCB chief executive Gerald Majola, who has rivals in the Asian lobby of the Board.The South African team may be predominantly white today but the Board is a more mixed, with enough representations of white, black and Asian interests. The Indian predicament and the case for standing up to Mike Denness is now secondary.advertisementAt the top of South African minds is alarm that the UCB is aligning itself with the new rebel forces of international cricket a perception that has the most disturbing associations here.While UCB President Pery Sonn maintained his Board had not defied ICC, followers of that school of thought are very few.
