  Karl, if you check the literature on the subjevct you'll realize that this 
  statement is not factual. You may wish to start with II Kings 25:22 ff.;
  In modern research you can look up Oded Liphschitz and others..

Dave Washborn worte, inter alia:
  "In addition, I would point out that the Bar Kokhba letters, like the DSS,
   were produced by a small corner of the populace that had a specific
   purpose in mind"
   If you looked up the Hebrew letters you'd find some suprises. In
  fact, Y. Yadin, the discoverer, was amused  to note in their
  language  a colloquial usage like that of modern Heb. (Instead of 
  pronouning ")et" only the "t" remains and is prefixed to the next word.)
  Eliezer Ben-Yehudah in the intorduction to his great dictionary made some 
  excellent points on this general subject.
