More Awesome Archeology!

Coins were recently discovered in Egypt from the era of the biblical "forefather" Joseph. They bear engravings with Josephs name on them as well as symbols related to stories about Joseph that are recorded in the Old Testament.

Not only does this point to the veracity of some of the biblical tale, but it is also being touted by archeologist's as proof that coins were used in ancient Egypt. A theory that had heretofore been of much discussion and unproven.

I've often heard it said that there was no archaeological proof of the biblical story of the exodus. I wonder if this is further or even the first proof of Jewish presence in ancient Egypt.

Fascinating!
