Major Find During Dig Points To Bible Accuracies
February 23, 2010
Israel (ChattahBox) – A major archaeological find of an ancient wall believed to be 3,000 years old may point to accuracies in the bible about kings David and Solomon.
The two are considered two of the greatest kings in biblical lore, but experts have long since debated the accuracy of the stories of their ruling.
The finding of this wall, however, may lead to clues as to the existence of a major government and technological capabilities of the time.
The wall, if scientists are correct in its’ dating, proves that massive fortified structures were built at the time, and that the people of 10th century B.C. were able to able to both create such structures, and had the resources available to them for the task.
“[It is] the most significant construction we have from First Temple days in Israel,” archeologist Eilat Mazar said.
“It means that at that time, the 10th century, in Jerusalem there was a regime capable of carrying out such construction.”
