What is the first mention of Israel in the archaeological record?

In 1896 the British archaeologist Flinders Petrie discovered a stele, (or monumental stone), in Thebes, Egypt.

Dating to around 1200 BC, this was an account of pharaoh Merneptah’s military campaigns, and it includes a direct reference to the people of Israel.

This is the first mention of Israel outside of the Bible that has been discovered so far.

With Dr. Chris Sinkinson, lecturer in Old Testament and Apologetics at Moorlands college.

‘The question of whether there exists a supernatural creator, a God, is one of the most important questions we have to answer. I think it is a scientific question.’
