Dr. Sung Hak Kim finds Ancient Menorah Rock Inscription in Saudi Arabia!

Dr. Kim discovered this ancient Menorah rock inscription at Wadi Atana in Saudi Arabia, which is about 120-130 kilometers from Jebal al Lawz, Mt. Sinai. It is likely the oldest rock inscription of a Menorah in the world having been inscribed by the Israelites as they wandered in the wilderness of Midian, in the very first decades after God gave Moses instructions on how to make the golden 'lampstand."  Exodus 25:31-40  “Make a lampstand of pure gold. Hammer out its base and shaft, and make its flowerlike cups, buds and blossoms of one piece with them. Six branches are to extend from the sides of the lampstand—three on one side and three on the other. Three cups shaped like almond flowers with buds and blossoms are to be on one branch, three on the next branch, and the same for all six branches extending from the lampstand. And on the lampstand there are to be four cups shaped like almond flowers with buds and blossoms. One bud shall be under the first pair of branches extending from the lampstand, a second bud under the second pair, and a third bud under the third pair—six branches in all. The buds and branches shall all be of one piece with the lampstand, hammered out of pure gold. “Then make its seven lamps and set them up on it so that they light the space in front of it. Its wick trimmers and trays are to be of pure gold. A talent of pure gold is to be used for the lampstand and all these accessories. See that you make them according to the pattern shown you on the mountain." (2011 NIV)
