According to the law of Moses, altars are supposed to have ramps, not stairs.
26 Neither shalt thou go up by steps unto mine altar, that thy nakedness be not discovered thereon. (Exodus 20:26)
Recently, the discovery of an ancient Hebrew inscription, written on a lead plate and dating to the 14c BC, was published. This video discusses the significance of the find because it corroborates the Biblical account of Joshua.
One key to the discovery was the presence of a ramp, not stairs, leading to the altar.
This shows it was an Israelite site.
The divine name YHV from Mount Ebal, written in proto-alphabetic script.
remember in the torah it prescribed that this you could not have steps going up to the altar right it had to be a ramp right and so a kosher altar had to be a ramp not steps now pagan altars were always steps right so this is huge it's huge it's a ramp up to and you have ash piles of only kosher animals i mean how much on the nose could you be and then for so so that was you know it's it's a huge discovery but people know people here and i grew up in israel people didn't talk about this people didn't know i mean this is probably one of the biggest discoveries in the land and people don't know about it why why people won't know about this because there's so much politics and so much oppression to this and he he speaks about this in his book first of all uh it was with archaeologists if the if the whole science of archaeology and and biblical history say that joshua never existed
One reason scholars are skeptical that Nephites ever lived in Mesoamerica is that Mayan culture used steps, not ramps, for their altars. In North America, at least in Book of Mormon times, the ancient people built ramps.
