To find oil, companies use everything from remote sensing satellites to seismic prospecting. But could verses of the Old Testament be used to find oil in the Holy Land? Maybe so, according to an article in World Net Daily, which describes how Israel’s Zion Oil company is using verses of the Torah to look for a huge reserve of oil. Deuteronomy chapter 33 speaks of Asher “dipping his foot in oil” while Genesis 49 mentions the “blessings of the deep” being on the crown of Joseph. Zion is therefore drilling in the area of Biblical inheritance of these tribes, and found encouraging signs of petroleum storage deep underground. Only time will tell if the Bible blesses Zion with a gusher of black gold.
