12:00 to 2:00 p.m.—Reception and Exhibit Viewing

“Seals of Isaiah and King Hezekiah Discovered” is an archaeological exhibition that will enable visitors to discover the history of ancient Judah’s most famous king-prophet pairing—a story which illuminates how Jerusalem escaped annihilation at the hands of King Sennacherib’s Assyrian army at the end of the 8th century B.C.

Items on display will include nearly three dozen artifacts from the time of King Hezekiah, including the recently discovered royal seal impressions of King Hezekiah and Isaiah from the Ophel excavations, royal Judean clay vessels, and weapons used during the siege of Lachish. The exhibit will also feature key Assyrian history and will include replicas of such artifacts as the famous Annals of Sennacherib Prism (aka Taylor/Jerusalem/Oriental Prism), various other Assyrian inscriptions, and the famous Assyrian wall reliefs.

A grand opening is scheduled for Sunday, June 10, at 11:00 a.m. at the Armstrong Auditorium. The opening will also celebrate the 50-year anniversary of the AICF’s “iron-bridge” partnership with Benjamin and Eilat Mazar.

Tickets for the grand opening celebration are available at www.ArmstrongAuditorium.org or by calling (405) 285-1010.
