The Seal of Gadalyahu

Seal of Gadalyahu

Pictured above is the bulla, or seal impression, bearing the name of Gedalyahu ben Pashur that was recently found in Jerusalem (click here). Gadalyahu was a minister of King Zedekiah, and is mentioned in Jeremiah 38:1-4. The bulla was found by Eilat Mazar's dig at the City of David site, just meters away from the locale where three years ago a separate seal impression of another of Zedekia's ministers, Yehukual ben Shelemyahu, which was unearthed.

Dr. Cook,

I came across your blog, and I thought you might be interested in an electronic edition of the Anchor Yale Commentaries, newly available for pre-order from Logos Bible Software.
