The Blaze website has an article up regarding a rock found in Israel. It is currently on display at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art which offers, according to archaeology experts, new evidence supporting the Bible’s description of the rule of King David.
Once again, the truth of Biblical history has yet another archaeological find to support what is written! Well, the ultimate Expert is God Himself – Who is the One who carried along the prophets and writers of each book of the Bible, in order to reveal Himself, His Son, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit and the way to salvation and eternal life. [For more about the Trinity, please see my previous post where the discussion in the post and comment section leads to Scriptural and Creation’s evidence of the Triune nature of God.]
Excerpt from Biblical Archaeology.org:
An extraordinary inscription from Israel referencing the Davidic dynasty is currently on display in New York. Written only about 150 years after King David would have reigned, the inscription is dated to c. 830 B.C.E. The inscription hails from Tel Dan in northern Israel and commemorates the conquests of Hazael, king of Aram-Damascus, enemy of the ancient kingdoms of Israel and Judah. Hazael claims to have killed both Jehoram, king of Israel, and Ahaziahu, king of “the House of David”—or Judah. That the nation of Judah is referred to as the “House of David” is significant because it is the only archaeological evidence of a historical David—a belief that had been hotly debated prior to this discovery—thus substantiating part of the Biblical narrative.
