Once in a while, archaeologists find something that both confirms the Bible and is simply fascinating in its own right. Such a find is the priceless collection of fabrics from King Solomon’s mines. Here is an excerpt from the Tel Aviv University team:
This is the first time textiles from that period have been discovered, and they are expected to provide information on the clothes and fashion that were used by ancient Israelites, as well as the neighboring Edomites…. “No textiles have ever been found at excavation sites like Jerusalem, Megiddo and Hazor, so this provides a unique window into an entire aspect of life from which we’ve never had physical evidence before,” Dr. Ben-Yosef said.
TAU masters student Vanessa Workman elaborated: “We found linen, which was not produced locally. It was most likely from the Jordan Valley or Northern Israel. The majority of the fabrics were made of sheep’s wool, a cloth that is seldom found in this ancient period. This tells us how developed and sophisticated both their textile craft and trade networks must have been.”
In addition to the fabric, archaeologists discovered well-preserved seeds, leather and other rare artifacts. “This is the first time seeds from this period have been found uncharred and in such large quantities,” said Dr. Ben-Yosef. “With the advancement of modern science, we now enjoy research options that were unthinkable a few decades ago. We can reconstruct wine typical of King David’s era, for example, and understand the cultivation and domestication processes that have been preserved in the DNA of the seed.” Israel National News
Yehovah, God of Israel is revealing His glory in Israel. I don’t need archaeology to confirm the Bible truth, but it is certainly exciting to see God’s favor and restoration in the Land! He has turned the page from judgement to restoration for Israel. It is the dawn of the new day in prophetic history.
All nations will come to your light; mighty kings will come to see your radiance. Isaiah 60:3
One translation ends the verse: and kings to the brightness of your dawn. NIV
But to you who fear My name the Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing in His wings; and you shall go out
and grow fat like stall-fed calves. Malachi 4:2
Jesus the Messiah (Yeshua haMashiach) is both the sun and the Son of righteousness. Come soon, Messiah of Israel.
