10 Intriguing Pieces Of Evidence For Bible Stories

The Physics Of The Ark

In 2014, four physics students from the University of Leicester tested the instructions given in the Book of Genesis for constructing Noah’s ark. They wanted to see if the 300-cubit-long, 50-cubit-wide, 30-cubit-high ark would actually float. A cubit is the length from the tip of a person’s middle finger to their elbow, which the students standardized at approximately 48 centimeters (19 in). That means the ark itself would have been around 145 meters (476 ft) long, 24 meters (79 ft) wide, and 14 meters (46 ft) high. The dimensions are like those of a small cargo ship.

The Bible says that the ark was made out of gopher wood, but nobody knows what that is anymore. A common guess is some type of cypress, so the students decided to use that for their calculations. When empty, a cypress ark would weigh approximately 1.2 million kilograms (2.6 million lb).

Next, the students had to determine how much weight the ark could carry without sinking. They knew that the density of the ark could not be greater than the water. Otherwise, the ship would sink. So assuming the vessel was shaped like a box, the maximum weight it could hold without sinking was almost 51 million kilograms (117 million lb). That’s the same weight as roughly 2.1 million sheep.

So could the ark have carried two of each animal? There are as many as eight million distinct species out there today, but the majority could survive a flood without being brought aboard the ark. Additionally, biblical scholars note that Genesis refers to two of every “created kind,” which probably refers to a smaller number of animals than two of every distinct species. Assuming all aquatic life stayed in the sea, then the students estimate that as few as 35,000 pairs of animals would need to be taken aboard, which the ark would have been easily capable of. (To reduce the space needed inside the ark, babies or young specimens of huge animals like elephants could have been used.) And how did Noah get all these animals in the first place? Some Christians hold that Noah built the ark on high ground and God simply had most of the animals migrate there for safety before the flood.

The Power Of Jezebel

Jezebel, the most wicked woman in the Bible, is mentioned in various passages, most often in the Books of Kings. In the ninth century BC, she married King Ahab of Israel, even though she was a Phoenician who worshiped the deity Baal. According to the Bible, Queen Jezebel wanted to convert the Israelites to her religion, and she was willing to murder the Jewish prophets to do it.

In one passage, Jezebel forged Ahab’s seal on documents to persuade the Israelites to accept her religion and abandon their own. This didn’t go down well and she was ultimately thrown out of a window to be eaten by dogs. But historians have long wondered if Queen Jezebel had influence independent of Ahab’s authority. In other words, did she really have the power to be as bad as she’s presented in the Bible?

The answer might lie with a stone seal discovered in Israel in 1964. The seal’s iconography includes a double cobra, a Horus falcon, and a winged sun disk, which Old Testament scholar Marjo Korpel interprets to suggest a connection to royalty. In addition, a lotus and a sphinx with a female head and crown imply that the seal was used by a queen. If the seal belonged to Jezebel, it would imply she had considerable political power of her own.

But archaeologists initially had trouble connecting the seal specifically to Queen Jezebel. The engraved letters on the stone were confusing. Her name appeared to be misspelled. However, when Korpel compared the seal to others of that time, she realized that an upper edge was missing, which probably held the two missing letters that were needed to spell Jezebel’s name correctly in ancient Hebrew.

So case closed? Well, not quite. For starters, the seal wasn’t actually found by archaeologists, but simply turned up on the Israeli antiques market. This isn’t actually uncommon (just 10 percent of ancient Jewish seals were found in scientific excavations), but it does complicate identifying its origins. Korpel’s work has also been challenged by experts like Christopher Rollston, who notes that the missing portion is large enough to suggest at least five missing letters, rather than the two Korpel suggests could have spelled out “Jezebel.” Since the root “zbl” was quite common in ancient Semitic languages, the missing letters could make any number of different names or words. Rollston also argues that the seal contains no title or family name, which might be expected from a royal seal. Ultimately, we’ll probably never know the origin of the seal for sure, although we can at least say that it belonged to a very powerful lady.

The Jewish High Priest Caiaphas

Appearing in the New Testament Books of John, Matthew, Luke, and Acts,Caiaphas was the high priest of Israel who presided over Jesus’s trial before delivering Him to Roman governor Pontius Pilate for crucifixion. (We’ve already covered the Pilate stone, physical evidence that Pontius Pilate actually existed.) In 1990, workers widening a road in Jerusalem stumbled across an ancient burial cave containing 12 ossuaries—limestone boxes containing the bones of the dead. One particularly ornate ossuary was inscribed “Joseph, son of Caiaphas.”

That name squares quite closely with the record of the first-century Jewish historian Flavius Josephus, who referred to Caiaphas as “Joseph who was called Caiaphas of the high priesthood.” The elaborately decorated ossuary contained the bones of a 60-year-old man, which was approximately Caiaphas’s age when he died. Archaeologists also observed that the writing on the ossuaries and the cave wall was the type of language used by cemetery workers in the first century. One of the ossuaries contained an AD 43 bronze coin, which is further evidence that the ossuaries were placed in the cave during the first century.

That said, the find isn’t without controversy. Skeptical archaeologists have noted that the tomb itself isn’t as fancy as you’d expect for the burial place of a high priest. And while other wealthy Jews of the time had their ossuaries delicately inscribed, the writing on the Caiaphas ossuary appears to have been crudely scratched with a nail. Additionally, some linguists have argued that the Hebrew name on the tomb doesn’t have enough syllables to be the origin of the Greek “Caiaphas,” and would actually have sounded more like “Qopha.” Others have dismissed this, noting that the Greeks had no problem adding extra syllables to confusing foreign names.

The ossuary is now in the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, although the bones were reburied on the Mount of Olives. In 2008, another ossuary was discovered in Israel and identified as belonging to Caiaphas’s daughter. The ossuary had been moved by thieves from its original location, but archaeologists currently believe it’s authentic. The ossuary is engraved with the words, “Miriam daughter of Yeshua son of Caiaphas. Priests (of) Ma’aziah from Beth Imri.”

Guide to Affordable Pens

A follower asked me about affordable pens and I figured it would be easier to make a post about it, so here you go:

Gel Pens

1. Pilot G-2 - A click-pen with nice, even inkflow and doesn’t bleed through pages. This pen is refillable and comes in 0.5 mm, 0.7 mm, and 1.0 mm, and a multitude of different colors. While this pen is favorited amongst many buyers, a problem a lot of them often run into is that the ink is splotchy and erratic. About $1.37 each.

2.  Uni-Ball Signo DX - Also a click-pen with even inkflow and does not bleed through. While people have said that the Pilot G-2 is the best gel pen, others who have used the Uni-Ball Signo DX argue that they are far inferior to the latter. This pen comes in 0.28 mm, 0.38 mm, and 0.5 mm. About $2.50 each.

3. Muji Gel Ink Ballpoint Pen - This pen comes in a wide variety of colors and the sizes 0.38 mm, 0.5 mm, and 0.7 mm for only four colors. It writes smoothly and has a fine tip. While the ink does not build up and splotch, there have been complaints about the ink refusing to work after some use. About $2.00 each.

4. Zebra Sarasa Push Clip - This pen is comfortable to use and hold, but is not as smooth as the Hi-Tec C pens. However, what it lacks in smoothness it makes up for with the fact that it does not blob or smear, most likely due to the 0.3 mm tip it comes with, along with a huge variety of colors. About $2.20 each.

*Gel pens are technically a roller ball pen variant that has thicker ink, so if you’re going for a pen that doesn’t bleed through, these would be ideal.

Roller Ball Pens

1. Hi-Tec C - This is one of my favorite roller ball pens because of the famous fine point and rich ink. It comes in a wide variety of colors and the sizes vary from 0.3 mm, 0.4 mm, and 0.5 mm. One issue with this pen, however, is that the ink occasionally splotches over long use and starts skipping, as in, if you are writing a word it will stop producing ink in the middle of writing. About $3.30 each.

2. Morning Glory - This pen has quite a distinctive design and the ink itself does not bleed through as the Hi-Tec C often does. It also does not skip, splotch, or streak, writes smoothly, and dries quickly. The stroke is easy to control and you do not need to press too hard while writing. The lines are very clean for a liquid ink pen. It is available in 13 colors and 0.38 mm. About $2.00 each.

3.  Zebra R-301 - This pen only comes in 0.7 mm, and blue and black ink, but it writes dark and bold. It is light and clean, so writing for a long time is not a problem, but the plastic grip is uncomfortable. It feels great to write with and the ink is plentiful, and dries quickly. Some have made complaints that this pen’s cap rattles too much whilst writing and it feathers on most types of papers. About $3.99 each.

4. Uni-ball Jetstream Finepoint Pen - Does not skip, smudge, feather, splotch, or bleed, and has an easy-to-hold grip and available in the generic red, blue, and black. Also, this pen offers great precision for those who write small, is comfortable to hold, and very reliable as it does not seem to dry out. It is only available in 0.7 mm. About $3.00 each.

Ballpoint Pens

1. Uni-ball Jetstream - This pen glides effortlessly across paper and produces even inkflow which dries quickly (even though ballpoint pens usually get stuck on the page or drags friction across the paper) so that you can write with your regular writing pressure and will be fine. This pen comes in 0.38 mm, 0.5 mm, 0.7 mm, and 1.0 mm. About $2.50 each.

2. Zebra Surari Emulsion Ink Pen - This is a ballpoint pen but it produces gel ink, so I was ambiguous about where to put it. It has thin lines, smooth inkflow, and oil-based ink, comes in 0.5 mm and 0.7 mm, and many different colors. A reviewed tested this pen against others when coming in contact with water, ethanol (hand sanitizer), and rubbing alcohol, and reported that this worked best in adversity compared to two other pens. About $1.65 each.

3.  Pentel Vicuna Super Smooth Ballpoint Pen - This pen comes with pitch-black ink and writes super smooth (as the name suggests), clean, and dark. It comes in black, blue, and red, and 0.7 mm. About $3.43 each.

4. BIC Cristal Soft - I’m just going to be upfront about it and say that I hate BIC’s ballpoint pens because the ink does not come out evenly and I usually have to press down hard to get it out, but one day I had to pleasure of picking up a BIC Cristal Soft that somebody had left at my workplace and it wrote surprisingly smoothly and easily. It’s light and the ink doesn’t build up or splotch, and has a hexagonal barrel for comfortable handling. This comes in red, black, and blue, and 1.2 mm and 0.45 mm. About $0.50 each.


1. Staedtler Pigment Liner 308 - I just purchased one of these pens myself and was far more satisfied with it than I was with the famous Staedtler Triplus Fineliner 334. It is advertised to be good for both writing and drawing, but I do not draw so I really wouldn’t know for that aspect. However, the ink comes out evenly and easily, and I was impressed with the multitude of different sizes it comes in: 0.3 mm - 2 mm, 0.05 mm, 1.20 mm, 0.90 mm, 0.10 mm, 0.20 mm, 0.30 mm, 0.40 mm, 0.50 mm, 0.60 mm, and 0.70 mm. About $3.30 each.

2. Staedtler Triplus Fineliner 334 - We all know this one, and its trademark ergonomic triangular barrel. While the previous liner only comes in black, this one comes in up to 36 different colors but only one size of 0.3 mm. It is adored by the studyblr community for its dry-safe guarantee and water-based ink. However, I’ve bought much too many sets of these and I can let you know firsthand that after long use the tip will begin to push into the metal and become unable to write. About $1.30 each.

3. Stabilo Point 88 - Another studyblr favorite, this pen also uses water-based ink and does not bleed through the pages, is easy to hold due to its lightweightedness, and produces clean, sharp lines. In contrast to the Staedtler Triplus Fineliner 334, this pen is shaped hexagonally. This is available in 30 different colors and 0.4 mm. About $0.80 each.

4. Sharpie Pen - I love this pen. I used to carry this pen around with me, one in each pocket, until I tragically washed my jacket with the pens still in and just never got around to purchasing them again because of lack of money. This pen does not bleed through the pages or blotch, and is smooth with a very fine point. It does not smear and it comes in many different colors, although I personally just prefer black. About $2.00 each.
