    We are told that all references to Paran in the Old Testament refer to Muhammad. In Strong's, Paran is describes as a desert in Arabia, a place of caves, and it was a cave where Muhammad had His Revelation. It's possible future archeological finds will show the map differently to now.

    Archaeological Claims about Shiloh

    Israeli Archaeologist Israel Finkelstein excavated at Shiloh and has made several claims that are not in accord with the biblical narrative. ABR's excavations at Shiloh will seek to explore those claims, which include:
    1. Finkelstein claims that the cultic center had to be on the top of the tell because this was the Canaanite tradition. In his view, if there were Israelites at Shiloh, they did not arrive until the 13th century B.C. or later. Biblical chronology based on 1 Kings 6:1
    as it is written
    :read: (1 Kings 6:1 From TS1998 VERSION OF
    1 Kings 6:1
    And it came to be, in the four hundred and eightieth year after the children of Yisra’ĕl had come out of the land of Mitsrayim, in the fourth year of the reign of Shelomoh over Yisra’ĕl, in the month of Ziw, which is the second month, that he began to build the House of יהוה.
    2 And the house which Sovereign Shelomoh built for יהוה was sixty cubits long, and twenty wide, and thirty cubits high.
    3 And the porch at the front of the hĕḵal of the House was twenty cubits long, according to the breadth of the House, and its width ten cubits, from the front of the House.
    4 And he made for the House windows with narrowed frames.
    5 And against the wall of the House he built rooms all around, against the walls of the House, all around the hĕḵal and the Speaking Place. Thus he made side rooms all around.
    6 The lowest side room was five cubits wide, and the middle one was six cubits wide, and the third one was seven cubits wide; for he made narrow ledges around the outside of the House, so as not to lay hold on the walls of the House.
    7 And the House, when it was being built, was built with finished stone made ready beforehand, so that no hammer or chisel or any iron tool was heard in the House while it was being built.
    8 The doorway for the middle side room was on the right side of the House. And they went up by stairs to the middle side rooms, and from the middle to the third.
    9 So he built the House and completed it, and he panelled the House with beams and boards of cedar.
    10 And he built the side rooms of the structure against all the House, each five cubits high, and they were fastened to the House with cedar beams.
    11 And the word of יהוה came to Shelomoh, saying,
    12 “This House which you are building – if you walk in My laws, and do My right-rulings, and shall guard all My commands and walk in them, then I shall confirm My word with you, which I spoke to your father Dawiḏ,
    13 and shall dwell in the midst of the children of Yisra’ĕl, and not forsake My people Yisra’ĕl.”
    14 So Shelomoh built the House and completed it.
    15 And he built the walls of the House inside with cedar boards, from the floor of the House to the ceiling he panelled them on the inside with wood, and covered the floor of the House with planks of cypress.
    16 And he built twenty cubits at the rear of the House, from floor to the walls, with cedar boards. And he built it inside as the Speaking Place, as the Most Set-apart Place.
    17 And the House was forty cubits, it is the hĕḵal before it.
    18 And the cedar for the House inside was carved with ornaments and open flowers; all was cedar, not a stone was seen.
    19 And he prepared the Speaking Place in the midst of the House, to place the ark of the covenant of יהוה there.
    20 And the front of the Speaking Place was twenty cubits long, and twenty cubits wide, and twenty cubits high. And he overlaid it with refined gold, and overlaid the altar of cedar.
    21 And Shelomoh overlaid the inside of the House with refined gold, and made gold chains pass over the front of the Speaking Place, and overlaid it with gold.
    22 Thus he overlaid the entire House with gold, until the entire House was completed. And the entire altar that was by the Speaking Place he overlaid with gold.
    23 And inside the Speaking Place he made two keruḇim of olive wood, ten cubits high.
    24 And one wing of the keruḇ was five cubits, and the other wing of the keruḇ five cubits – ten cubits from the tip of one wing to the tip of the other.
    25 And the other keruḇ was ten cubits. Both keruḇim were of the same size and shape.
    26 The height of one keruḇ was ten cubits, and so was the other keruḇ.
    27 And he placed the keruḇim in the midst of the inner house. And they stretched out the wings of the keruḇim so that the wing of the one touched one wall, and the wing of the other keruḇ touched the other wall. And their wings touched each other in the middle of the room.
    28 And he overlaid the keruḇim with gold.
    29 And he carved all the walls of the House all around, both inside and outside, with carved figures of keruḇim, and palm trees, and open flowers.
    30 And he overlaid the floor of the House with gold, inside and outside.
    31 And for the entrance of the Speaking Place he made doors of olive wood: the lintel, doorposts, a fifth.
    32 And the two doors were of olive wood. And he carved on them figures of keruḇim, and palm trees, and open flowers, and overlaid them with gold. And he spread the gold on the keruḇim and on the palm trees.
    33 And so he made doorposts for the door of the hĕḵal of olive wood – a fourth part.
    34 And the two doors were of cypress wood, the two leaves of the one folded, and two leaves of the other door folded.
    35 And he carved keruḇim, and palm trees, and open flowers, and overlaid them with gold laid smoothly on the carved work.
    36 And he built the inner courtyard with three rows of hewn stone and a row of cedar beams.
    37 In the fourth year the foundation of the House of יהוה was laid, in the month Ziw.
    38 And in the eleventh year, in the month Bul, the eighth month, the house was completed in all its matters and according to all its plans. Thus he built it for seven years.

    and other texts places the Conquest at the end of the 15th century BC. The ABR excavation at Shiloh has the potential to evaluate these arguments. For example, if remains of the tabernacle and associated buildings are found in a clear Late Bronze (LB) [1485-1173 B.C.] context, it would be an obvious synchronism between the archaeological data and the biblical text

    2. Finkelstein did not excavate the summit of the tel because he presupposed that there was only shallow soil above bedrock. However, there is a large building on the summit, possibly from the Crusader era, that may protect and preserve remains from the tabernacle or its associated buildings. The ABR excavation looks to excavate this building down to bedrock in order to explore this possibility.

    3. Finkelstein asserts that the massive LB bone deposit in Area D was entirely from the site's Canaanite's inhabitants. In this, he presupposes a late date for the Conquest (around 1230 B.C.). According to 1 Kings 6:1, Judges 11:26,
    so as it is written
    :read: (Judges 11:26From TS1998 VERSION OF
    Judges 11:26
    ‘While Yisra’ĕl dwelt in Ḥeshbon and its villages, and in Aro‛ĕr and its villages, and in all the cities along the banks of Arnon, for three hundred years, why did you not recover them within that time?

    and Joshua 18:1,
    :read: (as it is written
    Joshua 18:1
    From TS1998 VERSION OF

    the Israelites arrived at Shiloh about 1400 B.C. They immediately erected the tabernacle in order to practice the biblical sacrificial system. The bones in the deposit are almost entirely from animals prescribed for Israelite sacrifice. The ABR excavation at Shiloh will reexamine the evidence from the bone deposit and see how it compares to the biblical text.

    4. In public lectures, Finkelstein has made statements which differ his own Final Publication at Shiloh. He now seeks to minimize the Iron II (980-587 B.C.) or 1st Temple Period occupation at Shiloh. This contradicts 1 Kings 11:29 and 14:2-4, and Jeremiah 7:12-14, 29:6-9, and 41:5. The ABR excavation at Shiloh has the potential to reveal Iron II remains, illustrating the reliability of the biblical text during this era.

    Joshua 18:1
    And all the congregation of the children of Yisra’ĕl assembled at Shiloh, and they let the Tent of Meeting dwell there. And the land was subdued before them.
    2 And seven tribes were left among the children of Yisra’ĕl who had not yet shared their inheritance.
    3 So Yehoshua said to the children of Yisra’ĕl, “Till when are you going to fail to go in and possess the land which יהוה Elohim of your fathers has given you?
    4 “Appoint three men from each tribe, and let me send them out to go through the land and describe it according to their inheritance, and come back to me.
    5 “And they shall divide it into seven portions – Yehuḏah stays within their border on the south, and the house of Yosĕph stays within their border on the north –
    6 and you shall describe the land in seven portions, and shall bring it to me. Then I shall cast lots for you here before יהוה our Elohim.
    7 “But the Lĕwites have no portion among you, for the priesthood of יהוה is their inheritance. And Gaḏ, and Re’uḇĕn, and half the tribe of Menashsheh have received their inheritance beyond the Yardĕn on the east, which Mosheh the servant of יהוה gave them.”
    8 So the men rose up and went. And Yehoshua commanded those who went to describe the land, saying, “Go, walk through the land, and describe it, and come back to me, and let me cast lots for you here before יהוה in Shiloh.”
    9 So the men went, and passed through the land, and described it in a book in seven portions by cities. And they came to Yehoshua at the camp in Shiloh.
    10 And Yehoshua cast lots for them in Shiloh before יהוה, and there Yehoshua divided the land to the children of Yisra’ĕl according to their portions.
    11 And the lot of the tribe of the children of Binyamin came up for their clans, and the border of their lot came out between the children of Yehuḏah and the children of Yosĕph.
    12 And their border was on the north side from the Yardĕn, and the border went up to the side of Yeriḥo on the north, and went up through the mountains westward, and ended at the Wilderness of Bĕyth Awen.
    13 And the border went over from there toward Luz, to the side of Luz, that is Bĕyth Ěl, southward. And the border went down to Ataroth Aḏar, by the hill that lies on the south side of Lower Bĕyth Ḥoron.
    14 And the border was drawn and went around the west side to the south, from the hill that faces Bĕyth Ḥoron southward, and it ended at Qiryath Ba‛al, that is Qiryath Ye‛arim, a city of the children of Yehuḏah. This was the west side.
    15 And the south side was from the end of Qiryath Ye‛arim, and the border went out westward, and went out to the fountain of the waters of Nephtowaḥ.
    16 And the border came down to the end of the mountain that faces the Valley of the Son of Hinnom, which is in the Valley of the Repha’im on the north, and went down to the Valley of Hinnom, to the side of the Yeḇusite city on the south, and went down to Ěn Rog̅ĕl.
    17 And it was drawn from the north, went out to Ěn Shemesh, and went out toward Geliloth, which is opposite the Ascent of Aḏummim, and went down to the stone of Bohan son of Re’uḇĕn,
    18 and passed over to the side opposite Araḇah northward, and went down to Araḇah.
    19 And the border passed over to the side of Bĕyth Ḥog̅lah northward, and the border ended at the north bay at the Salt Sea, at the south end of the Yardĕn. This was the southern boundary,
    20 and the Yardĕn borders it on the east side. This was the inheritance of the children of Binyamin, according to its boundaries all around, for their clans.
    21 And the cities for the tribe of the children of Binyamin, for their clans, were Yeriḥo, and Bĕyth Ḥog̅lah, and Ěmeq Qetsits,
    22 and Bĕyth Araḇah, and Tsemarayim, and Bĕyth Ěl,

    Mecca in the Bible and the stone in the Bible
    The Jewish people do circle the Temple 7 times just like the Muslims circle the Kaaba 7 times. Evidence The pilgrims would circle around the Temple seven times and then watch the various rituals, sit under the columned porticos that surrounded the plaza and listen or talk to the rabbis.

    Before that they would wash performing Ablution washing like in Islam.

    Source Virtual Jewish library: The Second Temple

    Isaiah 60 Mecca all the tribes of Ishmael gathering to my House the monument Zion Kaaba in the desert.



    Zion actually means a monument in the desert and the verse in Isaiah chapter 60 says You will be The monument in the desert of the Holy One of Israel in Hebrew and not you Zion

    Ancient Hebrew Dictionary

    Spelled the way it is, however, the name Zion is identical to the Hebrew word ציון (sayon) either meaning place of dryness, or monument:

    Similarities between Judaism and Islam
    The religious practices of observant Jews and Muslims are at
    times identical, this page highlights the similarities in the hope it
    will inspire others to focus on the many things that unite us

    Similarities between Masjid al-Haram and the Jewish Temple

    Similarities between Masjid al-Haram and the Jewish Temple | Judaism and Islam – comparing the similarities between Judaism and Islam

    There are a number of interesting similarities between the two holiest sites in Islam and Judaism.

    Masjid al-Haram is the Great Mosque in Mecca, while the Jewish Temple

    once stood in Jerusalem where the al-Aqsa complex stands today.

    Al-Masjid al-Haram: The Sacred Mosque (Masjid
    al-Haram) is in the city of Mecca, Saudi Arabia. It is the largest
    mosque in the world and surrounds one of Islam’s holiest places, the
    Kaaba. Unlike other mosques which are segregated, men and women can
    worship at Al-Masjid Al-Haram together.

    Beit ha-Mikdash: The Holy Temple (Beit ha-Mikdash)

    stood in the city of Jerusalem, Israel. Two successive Temples stood on
    the Temple Mount, the current site of the Dome of the Rock. It is the
    holiest place in the world for Jews. The complex was separated into
    areas where priests, leviim, women and non-Jews could all come to
    worship the Almighty.

    Kaaba: The Kaaba is the most sacred point of the most sacred mosque in Islam. It is a square building which according to Islamic tradition, was first built by Abraham AS. Over time the Kaaba became a place of idolatry, until Muhammad SAW commanded that the idols be removed from this holy site.

    Kodesh Ha-Kodashim: The Holy of Holies (Kodesh
    HaKodashim) was the most sacred part of the most sacred place in
    Judaism. It was a sanctuary within the Temple that housed the Covenant
    of the Ark. Only the High Priest was permitted to enter this area.

    Al-Masjid al-Haram: The mosque can hold 900,000 people (currently being expanded to 2,000,000)
    Beit ha-Mikdash: The Second Temple could hold
    1,000,000 people (expanded to this capacity by King Herod to allow for
    the large numbers Jewish and non-Jewish pilgrims during chag)
    Islam: Wherever a Muslim is in the world, they are obligated to face the Kaaba when praying.

    Judaism: Wherever a Jew is in the world, they are obligated to face the Kodesh Ha-Kodashim when praying.

    Al-Hajar Al-Aswad: The Black Stone (Al-Hajar
    Al-Aswad) is the eastern cornerstone of the Kaaba. It is a stone that is
    revered by Muslims and is said to have fallen from Heaven to show Adam
    and Eve where to build an altar. It was originally set intact into the
    Kaaba’s wall by Muhammad SAW.

    Even Ha-Shetiya: The Foundation Stone (Even
    Ha-Shetiya) is the name of the rock that is believed by many to be the
    location of Holy of Holies. According to Jewish tradition it is the site
    where Abraham AS was commanded to sacrifice his son Isaac AS,
    it is the rock from which Earth was formed, it was close to th stone
    that God gathered the earth that was formed into Adam. It was on this
    rock that Adam, Cain, Abel, and Noah offered sacrifices to the Almighty.

    Underneath the Foundation Stone there is a cave. Muslim tradition
    teaches that Muhammad SAW ascended to heaven from this point.
    The stone currently lies under the Dome of the Rock. Five hundred years
    before the birth of Muhammad SAW, Rabbi Yishmael one of
    Judaism’s most important rabbis was recorded saying: “In the future, the
    sons of Ishmael (the Arabs) will do fifteen things in the Land of
    Israel … They will fence in the breaches of the walls of the Temple and
    construct a building on the site of the sanctuary”.

    Praying towards Gods House Bible just like Islam and a prophesy about the future the religion of Islam the Kaaba and Mecca.

    1 Kings 8:30,38,44,48-50

    And hearken thou to the supplication of thy servant, and of thy people
    Israel, when they shall pray toward this place: and hear thou in heaven
    thy dwelling place: and when thou hearest, forgive…

    Psalm 5:7
    But as for me, I will come into thy house in the multitude of thy mercy: and in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple.

    1 Kings 8:54
    And it was so, that when Solomon had made an end of praying all this prayer and
    supplication unto the LORD, he arose from before the altar of the LORD,
    from kneeling on his knees with his hands spread up to heaven.

    2 Chronicles 6:38

    If they return to thee with all their heart and with all their soul in the land of their captivity, whither they have carried them captives, and pray toward their land, which thou gavest unto their fathers, and toward the city which thou hast chosen, and toward the house which I have built for thy name:

    Daniel 6:10
    Now when Daniel learned that the decree had been published, he went home to his upstairs room where the windows opened toward Jerusalem. Three times a day he got down on his knees and prayed, giving thanks to his God, just as he had done before.

    Genesis 28 The Black Stone in the Bible:

    16 And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the LORD is in this place; and I knew it not.

    17 And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this place! this is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven.

    The Stone of Bethel
    18 And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the stone that he had put for his pillows, and set it up for a pillar, and poured oil upon the top of it.

    19 And he called the name of that place Bethel, (Bethel meaning House of God)

    Isaiah chapter 60 is talking about Gods glory shining upon Arabia and Mecca and in the context it's talking about the Hajj to Mecca, your just simply taking things way out of context.
    Glory of Makkah or Zion in ISAIAH
    Isaiah 60
    King James Bible

    1 Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.

    2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.

    3 And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.

    4 Lift up thine eyes round about, and see: all they gather themselves together, they come to thee: thy sons shall come from far, and thy daughters shall be nursed at thy side.

    5 Then thou shalt see, and flow together, and thine heart shall fear, and be enlarged; because the abundance of the sea shall be converted unto thee, the forces of the Gentiles shall come unto thee.

    6 The multitude of camels shall cover thee, the dromedaries of Midian and Ephah; all they from Sheba shall come: they shall bring gold and incense; and they shall shew forth the praises of the LORD.

    7 All the flocks of Kedar Ishmael tribes shall be gathered together unto thee, the rams of Nebaioth Ishmael tribes shall minister unto thee: they shall come up with acceptance on mine altar, and I will glorify the house of my glory.

    8 Who are these that fly as a cloud, and as the doves to their windows?

    9 Surely the isles shall wait for me, and the ships of Tarshish first, to bring thy sons from far, their silver and their gold with them, unto the name of the LORD thy God, and to the Holy One of Israel, because he hath glorified thee.

    10 And the sons of strangers shall build up thy walls, and their kings shall minister unto thee: for in my wrath I smote thee, but in my favour have I had mercy on thee.
