The Yehoash Stone
A few years ago an inscribed plaque appeared on the Antiquities market. The stone known as the Yehoash (Jehoash, Joash) Stone is one of the most significant finds in the Archaeological World. It is the only plaque from any of the Judean Kings. The Plaque was discovered while digging a grave for a Moslem terrorist in the Moslem cemetery on the western slope of the Kidron Valley just below the Temple Mount Walls. The plaque commemorates the repairs done by Yehoash to the Temple and compliments the information we have in II Kings 12 and II Chronicles 24. The story of Yehoash is one of the most amazing reports of the First Temple Period.
