The Ram's Horn
by Wayne Blank
The shofar has been used from Old Testament times right to the present. It was blown on the Sabbath, it announced the New Moon (see the Bible Calendar), and was used to proclaim the crowning of a new king (a ceremony still used today at the swearing in of a new Israeli president).
Other references to the shofar in The Bible:
"But the Spirit of The Lord took possession of Gideon; and he sounded the trumpet, and the Abiezrites were called out to follow him." (Judges 6:34 RSV)
Fact Finder: Will a great trumpet sound on the day of The Return Of Jesus Christ?
