Law Code

27 Jul 2010 July 26th ... press release by the Hebrew University. A Law Code with parallels to the Code of Hammurabi has been found written on fragments of a cuneiform tablet dating back to the Middle Bronze Age. They were found in a new excavation taking place at Hazor which will be interesting to keep an eye on. The latest discovery, it is said, opens an interesting avenue for possible further investigation of a connection between Biblical Law and the Code of Hammurabi. That link of course is the West Semitic Amorites (of Babylonia) with origins in Syria-Palestine. The connection is a MB site at Hazor and a MB Amorite king of Babylon.
