Discussion for Exodus 12:22

  • Mengistu on Exodus 12:22
    Hyssop is still used in Dawro Zone (Kullo Konta), in southwestern Ethiopia. Certainly, I can clearly describe what hyssop is and almost all of its functions in Bible will be accurately determined.
    I believe that it will be proved scientifically as it can be used for both a ceremonial cleansing and cleaning purpose as a detergent. In Dawro, it is also used for sprinkling of blood and water and most commonly used for handling of sponge. Hyssop has some more functions not mentioned in the bible.
    The only question may be risen is the exact geographic location of Egypt, on the history of exodus. I hope it will be described by biblical historians and further researchers when biblical hyssop is accurately determined.
