Incredible Archeological Findings at the City of David

Around 2010 or 2012 I first saw the City of David.  I don’t recall if it was freshly opened or if it simply was not well-excavated enough to be a hot tourist spot prior to that.  But what I realized the first time there was that this was an incredibly important place of discovery.  If King David indeed lived there, this would one day be an absolutely unbelievable site that would confirm Biblical truth.

Throughout the years, archeologist have made astounding progress.  I was there again in 2014, 2015 and last September (2017) and can tell you the archeological site is very well-excavated.  Yet, there is still much more to go.  News of significant findings come out of there regularly, indeed proving the veracity of Scripture and confirming the history of King David and the First Temple period.

I want to share a very interesting video from this excavation.  It is a long video, so if you don’t have an hour, take a look at just the first 8 1/2 minutes.  Even in that length of time, you will get a sense of how significant the findings are in the City of David!

By the way, if you take a trip to Israel, the City of David is a “must see!”

Enjoy!

Ancient Jerusalem is Rising!

I have visited the City of David many times, the most recent less than 2 months ago.  One of the most exciting things going on in Israel is the excavation of new parts of the City of David…the ancient city of Jerusalem.  It is coming alive!

The video below provides insight into what is taking place in the ancient Jerusalem, so I hope you will take a few minutes to enjoy the video and get excited about what the Lord is revealing.  I pray you are encouraged by the incredible discoveries that confirm the Word of God!  Prophecy is being fulfilled right before our very eyes!

Enjoy the video…and be a faithful watchman, giving the Lord no rest until He makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth!  (Isaiah 62:6-7)

Exciting Discoveries at the City of David

If you saw my post on Facebook a few days ago, you know that I made a stop at the City of David while in Jerusalem.  (For those of you who missed it, you can find it here.) It was shabbat (and, thus, not open), so I don’t have “fresh, new” photos to post.  However, fabulous news is coming out of the City of David, where they are unearthing tremendous things confirming the Word of God!

Please take a look at these two previous posts from earlier this summer:

Part of my purpose in sharing the sites of Israel this week is to emphasize the fact that the Bible is 100% accurate and trustworthy, and that many of the things we see today are fulfillment of prophecies made long ago!

As we look at these things, I am convinced we are seeing the Lord reveal Himself more and more as the day of His return draws near!  He wants His people to know Him!  Both Jews and Gentiles are welcome at His table, and it is only a matter of time before He summons us to join Him there!

Stay tuned, because I will share with you from the Southern steps of Temple Mount, the Western Wall, and the Garden Tomb over the next few days.

Also, I will be teaching a new study, What in the World is Going On?, beginning this Sunday at Calvary Community Church.  9:00am in the Prayer Room at NW, and 11:00am in Room 403 at Central.  For more information and directions to our campuses, click here.  See you there!

Israeli archeologists have unearthed findings dating back to Babylonian conquest and destruction of the First Temple in Jerusalem.

Archeologists uncovered several artifacts from charcoal covered rooms in the City of David dating prior to the siege of Jerusalem at the hands of King Nebuchadnezzar over 2,600 years ago.

Archeologists found several jars for storage, as well as charred wood, fish bones, human bones and seeds. Amongst the artifacts found were an Egyptian ivory statue, pottery jars and rosette seal dating to a decade prior to the capture of the Temple by the Babylonians.

Dr. Joe Uziel, the head of the excavation carried out by the Israel’s Antiquities Authority, described the significance of their findings, explaining, “Classifying objects facilitated controlling, overseeing…
