Archaeologists reaffirmed the reality of the Kingdom of Judah


Israeli archaeologists during excavations of the ancient Jerusalem’s Ophelia (near the southern wall of the Temple Mount) found a seal impression (bull) with the inscription “לחזקיהו (בן) אחז מלך יהדה” – that “belonged to Hezekiah – king of Judah.”

According to the report, this unique discovery confirms  the reality of Hezekiah king of Judah, mentioned in the Bible.

The discovery was made by a group of the archeologists of the Hebrew University, headed by Dr. Eilat Mazar.

According to the text of the Tanach, Hezekiah the son of Ahaz – one of the most famous representatives of King David’s dynasty, who ruled in Jerusalem more than 2,700 years ago.

King David and his son Shlomo (Solomon) created a powerful Jewish Empire about 3 thousands years ago.

The territory of the empire  was bounded by the river of Nile and the Euphrates.

According to the historians, Hezekiah (Hezekiah) reigned in 727 BC. e., when he was 25 years old.

According to the text of the Tanach, Hezekiah rules Judah for 29 years.

It’s worth noticing that Hezekiah’s name is mentioned in the Assyrian cuneiform inscriptions – as a Jewish king who fought with Assyria that destroyed the ancient Israel (North) Kingdom in the 8th century BC.

As a result of this historic event, ten of 12 “tribes of Israel” were expelled from their homeland and assimilated.

    most historians accept the chronology of the later kings. it is the time of Abraham, Issac, Jacob and Joseph they have trouble accepting. of course there are the “minimalists” who don’t believe in David and Solomon, which will soon be rebuffed by the amazing huge building that is being excavated on the original part of ancient Jerusalem which is thought to be David’s castle, fort, administrative center, Holy Temple

    We are those who believe without seeing with our own eyes all these things written in the bible, the inspired Word of the most high God.
