Links a 1948 discovery—that ancient scribes kept records on wax-covered, wooden writing boards—to the sticks of Joseph and Judah spoken of in Ezekiel 37. The coming together of these two records mark the beginning of the physical gathering of Israel (gathering to lands and countries) and the spiritual gathering of Israel (return to God).
