    And in a similar vein, I got this in my email in box today:

    ARCHAEOLOGISTS FIND TOWN WHERE FUTURE KING DAVID TOOK REFUGE FROM SAUL:In a finding sure to inflame the debate about the historicity of the biblical King David, an international team of archaeologists claims to have identified the lost city of Ziklag. Based on artifacts and carbon 14 dating results of excavations since 2015, scholars proposed this week that the archaeological site of Khirbet a-Ra‘i in the Judaean foothills is the site of the elusive Philistine town. According to a joint press release from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and the Israel Antiquities Authority, archaeologists discovered remains of a Philistine settlement from the 12-11th centuries BC that was followed by a rural settlement dating to the early 10th century BC, which is in keeping with the biblical account. Carbon 14 dating supports the archaeologists’ timeline and identification, according to the press release. (Times of Israel) No matter what part of the land in which you might find yourself, Israel will unfold evidence of her ancient past and innovative future. “For Your servants take pleasure in her stones, and show favor to her dust.” Ps. 102:14

    Archaeologists say they found town where future King David took refuge from Saul

    This place is a couple of miles from the Sea of Galilee near a shallow ford of the Jordan River. It is about six miles from Capernaum where Jesus stayed after leaving Nazareth. Bethsaida was the hometown of Peter, Andrew and Philip. It is a national park.

    You are certainly welcome.

    I absolutely LOVE it when archeologists find support for the biblical narrative.
