JNN News, June 9, 2019


A rare coin was discovered at an archaeological dig in Shiloh during a visit by Brazilian officials last week. The 2,000-year-old coin was uncovered as a delegation of governors and Congress members from Brazil were briefed by Dr. Scott Stripling who heads the excavations at the site where the Biblical tabernacle once stood. An especially exciting moment occurred during the presentation of Dr. Striping of recent unique findings when suddenly one of the diggers nearby found a 2000-year-old coin from the Hasmonean period. The participants where extremely move. Today, there is a modern Jewish community in Shiloh and the Brazilian delegation met with local residents to learn about the political situation and the history of the area. The visit was a part of a tour of the Benjamin Region of Samaria, located in the post-1967 areas north of Jerusalem. Among the participants was Everaldo Dias Pereira, head of the Social Christian Party who made headlines three years ago when he baptized Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro in Israel's Jordan River. (J.Post/Arutz-7)
