Explanation of Ancient Carvings sent to “City of David” Archeologists
who requested help in deciphering some recently discovered carvings
Dear City of David Archeologists:
Yesterday, I was notified that you are soliciting information about
the mysterious stone carvings recently uncovered in the City of David.
As the last Eldest Brother of the Desposyni Church, I have access
to our organization’s vast collection of ancient documents and drawings
dating back thousands of years.
I found some of the information that you are looking for. I can tell
you that all of the information you seek about the carvings, the room
and the entire City of David, was, and is, stored in the stone found
standing upright in the room next to the carvings.
The carvings were made by the biblical Enoch, long ago, while he
was teaching people in the area how to use spiritual energies for
alchemical purposes, in the healing of people’s bodies and in the
awakening of people’s Souls. This is where Enoch, (the first Lion
of Jud-Ah after the Great Flood of Noah’s Ark), would lay out the
ingredients for the Sacred Anointing Oil and perform an ancient sacred
Lions of Jud-Ah ceremony.
This ceremony would include appreciation by one Chosen One (Enoch)
to the five Chosen Ones who preceded him, and to the four Chosen Ones
who would follow him. This is represented by the two numeric symbols
of I and V being used separately and together.
Long ago, God asked ten Chosen Ones to be born in human bodies upon
planet earth, one for every thousand years. These ten are known in
some legends as the lineage of the Alpha and the Omega. This lineage
is represented by the two upside down Vs, the one with markings at
the top is the Alpha symbol and the one with markings on the bottom
is the Omega symbol.
We Desposyni were requested to keep our information secret until
2011. We are now releasing a vast amount of formerly secret esoteric
JERUSALEM (AP) — Mysterious stone carvings made thousands of years
ago and recently uncovered in an excavation underneath Jerusalem have
Israeli diggers who uncovered a complex of rooms carved into the
bedrock in the oldest section of the city recently found the markings:
Three "V'' shapes cut next to each other into the limestone floor
of one of the rooms, about 2 inches (5 centimeters) deep and 20 inches
(50 centimeters) long. There were no finds to offer any clues pointing
to the identity of who made them or what purpose they served.
The archaeologists in charge of the dig know so little that they have
been unable even to posit a theory about their nature, said Eli Shukron,
one of the two directors of the dig.
"The markings are very strange, and very intriguing. I've never
seen anything like them," Shukron said.
The shapes were found in a dig known as the City of David, a politically
sensitive excavation conducted by Israeli government archaeologists
and funded by a nationalist Jewish group under the Palestinian neighborhood
of Silwan in east Jerusalem. The rooms were unearthed as part of the
excavation of fortifications around the ancient city's only natural
water source, the Gihon spring.
It is possible, the dig's archaeologists say, that when the markings
were made at least 2,800 years ago the shapes might have accommodated
some kind of wooden structure that stood inside them, or they might
have served some other purpose on their own. They might have had a
ritual function or one that was entirely mundane. Archaeologists faced
by a curious artifact can usually at least venture a guess about its
nature, but in this case no one, including outside experts consulted
by Shukron and the dig's co-director, archaeologists with decades
of experience between them, has any idea.
There appears to be at least one other ancient marking of the same
type at the site. A century-old map of an expedition led by the British
explorer Montague Parker, who searched for the lost treasures of the
Jewish Temple in Jerusalem between 1909 and 1911, includes the shape
of a "V'' drawn in an underground channel not far away. Modern
archaeologists haven't excavated that area yet.
Ceramic shards found in the rooms indicate they were last used around
800 B.C., with Jerusalem under the rule of Judean kings, the dig's
archaeologists say. At around that time, the rooms appear to have
been filled with rubble to support the construction of a defensive
It is unclear, however, whether they were built in the time of those
kings or centuries earlier by the Canaanite residents who predated
The purpose of the complex is part of the riddle. The straight lines
of its walls and level floors are evidence of careful engineering,
and it was located close to the most important site in the city, the
spring, suggesting it might have had an important function.
A unique find in a room beside the one with the markings — a stone
like a modern grave marker, which was left upright when the room was
filled in — might offer a clue. Such stones were used in the ancient
Middle East as a focal point for ritual or a memorial for dead ancestors,
the archaeologists say, and it is likely a remnant of the pagan religions
which the city's Israelite prophets tried to eradicate. It is the
first such stone to be found intact in Jerusalem excavations.
But the ritual stone does not necessarily mean the whole complex was
a temple. It might simply have marked a corner devoted to religious
practice in a building whose purpose was commonplace.
With the experts unable to come up with a theory about the markings,
the City of David dig posted a photo on its Facebook page and solicited
suggestions. The results ranged from the thought-provoking — "a
system for wood panels that held some other item," or molds into
which molten metal would could have been poured — to the fanciful:
ancient Hebrew or Egyptian characters, or a "symbol for water,
particularly as it was near a spring."
The City of David dig, where the carvings were found, is the most
high-profile and politically contentious excavation in the Holy Land.
Named for the biblical monarch thought to have ruled from the spot
3,000 years ago, the dig is located in what today is east Jerusalem,
which was captured by Israel in 1967. Palestinians claim that part
of the city as the capital of a future state.
The dig is funded by Elad, an organization affiliated with the Israeli
settlement movement. The group also moves Jewish families into the
neighborhood and elsewhere in east Jerusalem in an attempt to render
impossible any division of the city in a future peace deal.
Palestinians and some Israeli archaeologists have criticized the dig
for what they say is an excessive focus on Jewish remains. The dig's
archaeologists, who work under the auspices of the government's Israel
Antiquities Authority, deny that charge.
