This is exciting! Archeologists have made a biblical discovery that is the first of its kind! Muslims are pissed because there is new evidence that the Jews ruled Israel long before Palestinians claimed the land.
Charisma News reports that the royal seal of Kind Hezekiah, who ruled around 700 B.C. has been added to the nation’s extensive collection of ancient artifacts.
Hezekiah was described in the bible as a daring monarch- “There was no one like him among all the kings of Judah, either before him or after him” (2 Kings 18:5)-who was dedicated to eliminating idolatry in his kingdom.
This is the first time that a seal impression of an Israelite or Judean king has ever come to light in a scientific archaeological excavation,’’ Mazar said.
The detailed clay seal, known as a bulla, was uncovered near the southern part of the wall surrounding Jerusalem’s Old City. It was mistakenly buried in a refuse dump around the time of the Israelite king.
After five years of research, a team member was able to decipher the text.
