THE STORY OF THE STONE IN BIBLICAL TEXT

The stones of the choshen mishpat, the High Priest's breastplate, were referred to in the Bible as the urim v'tummim, or Urim and the Thummim, a phrase that has yet to be defined.

Legend says it was given to a Knight Templar 1,000 years ago and handed down through that family from one generation to the next.

With no visible markings on the surface, Dr. James Strange ruled out the idea that the stone (pictured) was initially cut open. After his examination, he said it had either been set in a large plate or breastplate and he also dated its creation to the 5th century BC

‘And thou shalt put in the breastplate of judgment the Urim and the Thummim; and they shall be upon Aharon’s heart’. Exodus 28:30

The Jewish text, Talmund, reveals questions would be brought to the breastplate and the stones would light up to spell the questions – each stone had different letters at the center.

This text states the stones were lost in Jerusalem was invaded by the Babylonians.

In the book of Samuel, you read the urim v’tummim is one of the three forms of divine communication: dreams, prophets and the urim v’tummim.

And when Shaul inquired of Hashem, Hashem answered him not, neither by dreams, nor by Urim, nor by prophets. I Samuel 28:6

It is nonsense. Note no actual scientists has examined the stone, no gemmologist, no geologist.
