Ancient Rock Believed to Offer Key Evidence of Biblical Account


Dec. 16, 2014 11:00am Sharona Schwartz

A rock found in Israel and currently on display at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art offers new evidence supporting the Bible’s description of the rule of King David, archaeology experts believe.

The stone’s inscription, which appears to refer to King David’s dynasty, is believed to have been written in 830 B.C., only 150 years after he reigned.

A recent article by the Biblical Archaeology Society described the inscription referencing the Davidic dynasty as “extraordinary” and a discovery that substantiates the biblical narrative of the storied king:


The inscription hails from Tel Dan in northern Israel and commemorates the conquests of Hazael, king of Aram-Damascus, enemy of the ancient kingdoms of Israel and Judah. Hazael claims to have killed both Jehoram, king of Israel, and Ahaziahu, king of “the House of David” — or Judah. That the nation of Judah is referred to as the “House of David” is significant because it is the only archaeological evidence of a historical David — a belief that had been hotly debated prior to this discovery — thus substantiating part of the Biblical narrative.

"Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime and pure (and) which insures to the good eternal happiness, are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments."

^ I think that is second to the Dead Sea Scrolls in terms of "biblical finds."

How does any of this support creationism? Point being, the same techniques used to verify Biblical accounts are the ones used to verify secular archeology:

Evidently since it is obviously about the reliability of the Bible, and unless I am mistaken Creationism is taken from the Bible. Or have Fundamentalists given up on the Creation story?

Or, is it that you think archeology is now limited to only Biblical stories of Abraham, David, etc.?

BTW, I posted many of these same archeological finds several years ago.

"Creationism is taken from the Bible..."

Yes.

That doesn't make "the Bible about Creationism" any more than a truck being a vehicle means that any vehicle is a truck (i.e., a tank, a plane, a ship).

A huge logical fallacy there.

And what's with "Fundamentalists"?  This is the Christian Forum. Not the Fundamentalist Forum.

Ok. So we are going to play the childish mind games again.

What is the First Book in the Bible about? Where does the Christian concept of creation come from? How often is the creation story referred to in the Bible?

No. What was illogical was your comment "That doesn't make "the Bible about Creationism" any more than a truck being a vehicle means that any vehicle is a truck (i.e., a tank, a plane, a ship)"

It doesn't make it about Abraham, David, libraries, etc. neither. Then too, I have no clue as to how you could so foolishly compare what is a vehicle to what the Bible teaches.

"Fundamentalists" are not Christians now? Or is fundamentalism just not allowed in your "christian" forum?

Here's the logical fallacy:  Fallacy of Composition.

That's the second time in two posts.

Here, read this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fallacy_of_composition

Creationism "comes from the Bible"--that doesn't make the Bible "about Creationism," and neither is "young-earth Creationism" the sole interpretation of Genesis 1 and 2.  Fundamentalists are Christians. Not all Christians are Fundamentalists. Therefore the conversation here is not limited to Fundamentalists.

This thread is not about Creationism. Your comments are off-topic. Further off-topic comments will be deleted.

Since I started the thread I do believe I have the authority to say what it is for. The title speaks for itself.  Historical finds, not creationism.
