A View from the Past

The archaeologist’s spade has often confirmed biblical accounts. In a recent discovery about 2 miles from the Old City in Jerusalem, archaeologists have uncovered what they believe to be the administrative center of the Kingdom of Judah. “Archaeologists from the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) believe the area was used during the reigns of Hezekiah and Manasseh in the 8th Century to 7th Century BCE, also known as the First Temple Period.” The experts believe strongly this was an administrative center “because of the many jar handles found with the royal Hebrew stamp. It seems the jars were used to gather taxes paid to the Judean kings in the form of foodstuffs.”

Incredible finds of Israel’s ancient past continue to confirm the biblical account of the nation, its inhabitants, and rulers.
