Jerusalem: Archaeologists Discover Ancient Biblical Wall

November 29th, 2007 · 1 Comment

I love this sort of thing. Historical proof. What wonderful news to hear during the Christmas season.

Israeli says elusive biblical wall found

JERUSALEM - A wall mentioned in the Bible’s Book of Nehemiah and long sought by archaeologists apparently has been found, an Israeli archaeologist says.

A team of archaeologists discovered the wall in Jerusalem’s ancient City of David during a rescue attempt on a tower that was in danger of collapse, said Eilat Mazar, head of the Institute of Archaeology at the Shalem Center, a Jerusalem-based research and educational institute, and leader of the dig.

Artifacts including pottery shards and arrowheads found under the tower suggested that both the tower and the nearby wall are from the 5th century B.C., the time of Nehemiah, Mazar said this week. Scholars previously thought the wall dated to the Hasmonean period from about 142 B.C. to 37 B.C.

The findings suggest that the structure was actually part of the same city wall the Bible says Nehemiah rebuilt, Mazar said. The Book of Nehemiah gives a detailed description of construction of the walls, destroyed earlier by the Babylonians. Continued.

When will “THEY” get it?

Lest we forget…

BETHLEHEM, West Bank — The Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem reeked of urine and was strewn with dirty pots and pans, leftover food and mattresses Friday afternoon, but emerged with little permanent damage as the 39-day siege ended with Israel pulling its forces out of the city.

Journalists touring the basilica, one of Christianity’s holiest shrines, saw two wooden altars in the Armenian section and a marble baptismal covered with leftover food and dirty dishes

Bully for them…

Report: Hamas urges UN to rescind decision that made Israel a state
It is not shameful to correct a mistake. Palestine is Arab-Islamic land from the river to the sea, including Jerusalem, and Jews have no place there,” the radio quoted a Hamas statement as saying.

I think not!

…And for the record. I have had it with Condoleezza Rice.

Oh and did you all hear of this?

Bush: We are all Terrorists now @ Atlas Shrugs

Bush has lost his mind and his moral compass. This statement is an outrage. A lie and a blood libel. Israel has never committed any acts of terrorism. What a tool of Islamic jihad. Based on that, Bush is a terrorist, anyone that defends himself, his family, his country is a terrorist.
This is a sad sad day.

Good night and God Bless.

    I’ve had my fill of Condi too. She compares the plight of the Palestinian terrorists, to that of the blacks in the South under Jim Crow laws. Sure. Whatever.

    That’s pretty cool about Nehemiah’s wall. I admit, I accept the Bible solely by faith, but it is fun to watch the physical truth being discovered. Merry Christmas is right. :)
