Palace of David found? Bible's clues help lead to 'significant discovery'


by Bible Network News Staff
(With files from The New York Times, The Washington Post and Biblical Archaeology Review)

JERUSALEM, Israel, March 3, 2006 — Following clues from the Bible's Old Testament, an Israeli archaeologist has uncovered what she believes could be the palace of the biblical King David.

While some scholars are sceptical that the foundation walls Eilat Mazar has discovered in the northern part of the most ancient area of Jerusalem, (known as the City of David), belong to the palace of the Jewish shepherd/poet/warrior/king, they acknowledge the importance of her find. According to a description in The New York Times it is a find that includes, "a major public building from around the 10th century B.C., with pottery shards that date to the time of David and Solomon and a government seal of an official mentioned in the book of Jeremiah."

Amazing discovery in heart of biblical Jerusalem

By: DAVID HAZONY Special to the CJN
Recent archaeological find, thought by some to be the biblical palace built by King David, stirs controversy over the right of the Jewish people to claim Jerusalem.

In what many archaeologists hail as the potential find of the century, remains of a massive structure dating to the time of King David have been discovered in the heart of biblical Jerusalem.

Eilat Mazar, the Israeli archaeologist leading the excavation, has suggested that it may, in fact, be the palace built by David as described in the Bible.

The discovery has shaken the already contentious field of biblical archaeology to its roots: For the last few years, a number of respected archaeologists n most prominently Israel Finkelstein, chairman of Tel Aviv University’s archaeology department and author of the 2001 best-seller The Bible Unearthed n have argued that the biblical accounts of Jerusalem as the seat of a great and united monarchy under the rule of David and Solomon are false. If Mazar’s hypothesis proves right, it would go a long way toward proving Finkelstein and the others wrong.
