Evidence of Ancient Israel Discovered in Egypt

The Land of Israel has been referred to by many different names throughout its history- Canaan, Judah, Judea, Israel and Palestine.

In 1896, Flinders Petrie discovered a stele ten and a half feet high, five feet wide, inscribed on both sides. What makes this find so significant is the discovery on it of a single word, "Israel."
