Urim and Thummim
What was the true nature and purpose of the Urim and Thummim? In Ancient Hebrew, these stones were called abnay zeekawrone traditionally translated “stones of memorial,” and there are many ideas as to their function as well as the function of the ephod, a peculiar device worn by the High Priest of the Israelites at the time that the Ark of the Testimony (aka Ark of the Covenant) was in use.
Through extensive research and analysis through 19 ancient languages in use around the time of the Ark, these stones appear to be “stones of communication” at the heart of a system used to “talk” with God.
This and many other questions have puzzled biblical scholars, archeologists, and all those interested in solving one of the most intriguing mysteries of the Old Testament.

In Talking With God: The Radioactive Ark of the Testimony. Communication Through It. Protection From It., biblical researcher Roger D. Isaacs examines more than 30 important words in the Bible that skew our understanding of what really happened in ancient times. The result is a totally new understanding of the puzzling laws and seemingly fantastical stories about the ark that readers often dismiss.
