40-year-old odyssey uncovers original ‘Home of God’ at Mount Ebal, Jerusalem Post, Zvi Koenisberg, 1/26/2022
The date was October 13, 1983. A Wikipedia search turns up nothing of importance for that date, but it will be etched in my memory forever as the real starting point in the saga of my Mount Ebal research. The goal of the research has been to reveal the historical truth behind the archeological site known popularly as “Joshua’s Altar” at Mount Ebal. It is a journey that continues to this day, and hopefully, will be continued by others once I cannot.
