In the area of the Tigris-Euphrates Rivers, clay was readily abundant. Huge libraries containing thousands of clay tablets have been unearthed from this part of the world. The clay was made into tablets when soft. The writing was impressed upon the soft tablets with a stylus. Then, finally, the tablets were baked in an over.

Archeologists have discovered a clay tablet of the ancient city of Nippur, which is like the map of Jerusalem the ancient Prophet Ezekiel was commanded by God to sketch on a block of clay (Ezekiel 4:1). Again, archeology is found, contrary to popular belief, to confirm rather than contradict the Bible’s reliability.
