The Discovery of Ugarit and the Ugaritic Texts.
 

JOIN US TODAY FOR A QUICK REVIEW / OVERVIEW OF THE UGARITIC TEXTS AND HOW THIS TEXT CAN SHINE SOME NEW LIGHT ON THE BIBLE.

In 1928 a group of French archaeologists discovered the Ugaritic Texts. One of the most, if perhaps not the most, important aspect of Ugaritic Texts is the assistance it gives in correctly translating difficult Hebrew words and passages in the Old Testament. As a language develops the meaning of words changes or their meaning is lost altogether. This is also true of the Biblical text. But after the discovery of the Ugaritic texts we gained new information concerning the meaning of archaic words in the Hebrew text.

The texts which were discovered at Ugarit aroused interest because of their international flavor. That is, the texts were written in one of four languages; Sumerian, Akkadian, Hurritic and Ugaritic. The tablets were found in the royal palace, the house of the High Priest, and some private houses of evidently leading citizens.
