The ancient building would have commanded a view of King Solomon’s Temple but was likely destroyed in 586 BC however some traces of the lost structure has survived

A royal palace overlooking the Biblical heart of Jerusalem has been uncovered by stunned archaeologists.

The building, which stood outside the walls of the ancient city, would have commanded a view of King Solomon’s Temple but was likely destroyed in 586 BC.

However, some traces of the lost structure survived, including a number of capitals – a type of stonework used in columns – closely associated with the Kings of Judah and Israel.

Yaakov Billig, who directed the excavation, said this “proto-Aeolian” style was typical of royal buildings, raising the possibility that the palace belonged to a king.

He said: “This is a very exciting discovery.

“The level of workmanship on these capitals is the best seen to date, and the degree of preservation of the items is rare.”

But experts are puzzled over why parts of the palace were neatly buried and thereby preserved, when the rest was plundered.

“At this point it is still difficult to say who hid the capitals in the way they were discovered and why they did so,” said Professor Billig.

“There is no doubt that this is one of the mysteries at this unique site to which we will try to offer a solution.”

Experts believe the palace was built at some point between the failed Assyrian siege of Jerusalem in 701 BC and the destruction of the city by Babylon in approximately 586 BC.

During that time, Jerusalem was reigned over by a succession of eight different kings, five of whom are named in the Bible as ancestors of Christ.

The association between these ancient kings and the style of the artefacts is so close that a likeness of the stonework actually appears on modern Israel’s five shekel coin.

The fact that the palace was built outside the city walls reflected a degree of confidence, experts believe.

The artefacts from the palace, which are carved from soft limestone, will be exhibited in Jerusalem over the coming days.

Professor Billig said: “This discovery attests to a new revival in the city and somewhat of an ‘exit from the walls’ of the First Temple period after the Assyrian siege.

“We have revealed villas, mansions and government buildings in the area outside the walls of the city.

“This testifies to the relief felt by the city’s residents and the recovery of Jerusalem’s development after the Assyrian threat was over.”

The more we think we know, the more we find out we don't know.


But then, how do we find out things deliberately hidden by the powers that be, both in the past and now?

Humans except they belong to the powerful class are pawns to be played both by the actors of history and the writers of history itself.

Great Work from the Archaeologists and Scientists.
Of Recent they Have been Coming up with Physical and Tangible Evidence of Matters and Events in the Holy Bible that Many have argued about..

For Me, I do not Need any Scientist or Archaeologists to Show Evidence before I Believe.
The Holy Bible is My Evidence . I Believe with all of My Heart and Soul Every Word of the Bible..

I don't Need an Archaeologist to tell me Jerusalem Belongs to Isreal!
I Don't Need a Scientist to tell me Isreal is God's Elect Nation..

These things are not Discovered in these times for Fun..

I Believe The Almighty God is Doing Everything Possible for People to Believe in Him, Surrender to Him and Be Saved From the Wrath to Come.

I Believe The Almighty God, The God of Abramham, Isaac and Isreal is allowing these things So that those who are still Pondering between two Opinions will Understand that The God of Isreal in the Bible is Alive Today and is The Orginal GOD..

This Same Holy Bible Records the Endtimes Events we are seeing All over the Nations

This Same Holy Bible Announced Clearly that JESUS is Coming to Snatch His Children away..

For the Scoffers and Arguers, Drop that sense you feel you feel you Have..

If you Miss Heaven! You Must Cry...

Humble yourself! Do away with Sin and Surrender to JESUS! So you are not Left Behind..

Be Rapture Ready!

This is simply archaeologists doing their jobs. They are not trying to confirm your bible which have already been academically established as unreliable.

Well, the year in which Jerusalem was destroyed is one that is still debated 'til today.
Some will say 607BCE, others might say 587/586BCE.
It is worthy to note that the date MUST correspond with Bible chronology.

But I'm not sure you can say the same for me—seeing that you're intolerant of other people's beliefs.

This is actually what caught my attention—because it seems you now have a say in what others choose to believe.

Hence the question:

“Would you like to do the thinking for the people who choose to believe in the Bible?”

If you cannot provide a reasonable answer to that, then you have no argument.

I notice that when you put atheists in their place and silence them, they look for the next avenue to run—which is what you just did here.

The point is not that Judah didn't have kings 2500 years ago. The point is that the histories told about those kings are highly exaggerated and blown out of proportion by the writers of histories from time to time. Below is a record of the lies of Solomon as he revealed to his son some thousands of years back.


Common Era 22:12-33

12. This is the true story of my life, to Roboam my son alone have I written this, to make known the exact truth concerning me, Solomon his father. When I, Solomon, the king of the little Kingdom of Israel have sent men to count the number of people in my kingdom, after the death of David my father, they brought me number.
13. They said, there are 2,505 men and 2,671 women in the whole of the kingdom, with 4,914 children. Altogether, the population of the land is 10,090 people.
14. Now I called all the wise men of the land together and said, tell me, how can we make the kingdom of Judah seem great, even greater than Aksum where their population is about 80,000 people at this time?
15. Now the wise men said, we might be unknown at this time o king, but if we write a history of our land, according to our own wish, then in the future, we shall be made known in the way we portray ourselves.
16. Remember the histories and legends which that great man Moses left for us about the departure of Israel from Egypt. Although we have checked and have found that the stories of that man Moses, who was also called Yahweh, was not true, yet we made it a tradition and our belief.
17. And now Yahweh has replaced El as the Almighty God in the minds of everyone in Israel. For we know that Moses spoke of leading about a million Israelites out of Israel, but here we have but just about 10,000 Israelites.
18. Where are the children and descendants of the other thousands of people? By this we know that the stories passed down to us are mere exaggerations and lies, but we still believe them.
19. Now let us write large histories for Israel and make our kingdom a hundred times larger in that history, so that those in the future shall read of the things which we have written concerning ourselves and regard us as great people.
20. Then they shall make us great by themselves.
21. Now I your father considered these things and agreed with them, saying, let books of histories be written concerning this land Israel. Let us be regarded greater than the Syrians, Egyptians, Hivites, Hittites, Aksumites and all surrounding lands in our histories.
22. I Solomon shall write also books and words of wisdom, for I know how to do such things. I shall bring famous people under me and make them appear inferior to me.
23. I shall make Israel seem greater than all these lands in the matter of wars, civilization and even population.
24. Now I Solomon and my people set aside one year to write false histories, from the end of the books of Moses and Joshua till the present time. And we wrote according to our abilities.
25. And we wrote the Chronicle of this land Israel, wherein we added numbers from time to time to make our land seem great before those who should read them in the future.
26. Now I discovered that I could write words of wisdom, so I began to do so. And I wrote more than a thousand words of wisdom.
27. Now also, I thought, saying, there is wisdom in inflating the numbers of wives and concubines which I have. For I have seven wives and three concubines. And one of my concubines is your mother, for I brought her into the house to be one of my wives after she gave birth to you.
28. Now Roboam my son, if you read the Chronicles of the kings of this land Israel, you shall see that it is recorded that I have 700 wives and 300 concubines. This is falsehood. For I made the truth seem a hundred times more than it really is.
29. My father David left no book for me, but I hired the service of a chief musician from Gilgal named asaph. And he said to his choir, let us make songs for Solomon the king. Let it be known as the Psalms of David his father, because king Solomon has promised us lands and slaves in the land of Israel.
30. So asaph and his choir wrote many songs to be known as the Psalms of David my father.
31. As for me, I have made myself the wisest of all men and kings on earth, according to the stories of the Chronicles. For I wrote the Queen of Saba as one who submitted to me. And if the famous Queen of Saba is written as such, then in the future, tell me how I shall not be regarded even greater than her?
32. Also, I commanded that an ark should be constructed, so that the story of Moses and Joshua about a certain mysterious ark which none of us knew of could appear real. And I have commanded the construction of a temple.
33. Now Roboam my son, when you shall become the king, make sure writers are not lacking around you. For they shall write according to your wish and whatever is written shall stand.
