2005-2013: King David’s Palace Unearthed in Jerusalem

“For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither [any thing] hid, that shall not be known and come abroad.”  Luke 8:17

We are living in exciting times of discovery for Israel; times revealing that real people, real places, and real events existed, and were recorded in the Old Testament/Hebrew text.

An excavation that began in 2005 revealed the foundation of, what Archaeologists believed to be, the biblical King David’s Palace.  The official announce came in 2013.

Archaeologists have unearthed a palace in what they believe is the fortified Judean city of Shaarayim, where the Bible states King David battled the giant Goliath.

The discovery of what is thought to be King David’s palace, measuring 1,000 square metres, was made by Hebrew University and the Israel Antiquities Authority.

Over the past seven years the teams have also uncovered a huge storehouse containing pots and artifacts that they believe proves the existence of a ruler in Judah in the tenth century BCE.  More here.
