Wordless: Verse 43

This image is the Kadesh Treaty. It is the earliest known documented treaty found in the world to date. The treaty explains the terms of a trade agreement between Ancient Egypt and the Hittite Empire.

This treaty is important to Christians and to Bible believers because early skeptics used the Hittites as proof that the Bible had inconsistencies because there was no proof the Hittites existed. This treaty shows otherwise.

The Hittites are mentioned in Genesis chapters 10, 15, 23, and 25.

I have to say that I love not only this WW picture, but all the other WW historical photos you have posted. In all my history courses/research the one area I was never able to delve into was Biblical history. You have made this very, very interesting. Thank you!
