The discovery of the Mt. Ebal Curse tablet has provided evidence of the historicity of the biblical accounts in the books of Deuteronomy and Joshua.
Do you know the story?
Moses had instructed that the whole nation and the foreigners with them were to proclaim blessings on Mt. Gerizim and curses on Mt. Ebal after they had entered the promised land. This dramatic chorus was led by Joshua and the Priests who read from the writings of Moses as God had spoken them to him. So what is the take-away for Christians in our time? Are there still blessings and curses? Has the Lord God of Israel changed, or is he the same today as he was in the past and will continue to be in the future.
Interestingly, Jesus conversation with the Samaritan woman at Jacob’s Well. This was in the area of Shechem the same area where God had asked the people to display their devotion to his way of life by giving their assent to the blessings and cursings. So the question today remains unchanged from that of millennia ago, ” Will we follow Christ, the Lord God, on the good path and receive his blessings, or not?”
