Dear friends, lots of exciting discoveries are being made in Israel, particularly in the excavation of the City of David. Several weeks ago I shared some information about the excavation going on there, and today I have more exciting news to share with you!
As people come to Jerusalem from all over the world, they are seeing the Bible come to life more dramatically than perhaps ever before. The City of David was the “real” Jerusalem back in David’s day. If you recall, David wanted to build a temple to honor the Lord, but God did not permit him to do so. (2 Samuel 7) Instead, David passed that mantle to his son, Solomon (1 Chronicles 22), who built the most elaborate structure on the face of the earth at that time.
Today, it is being unearthed, and Old Testament accounts of David and Solomon’s reigns are coming to life! Spend a few minutes gazing at the work being done, and watching the veracity of Scripture come to life! If you love God’s Word, you will be blessed by what you see!
