Discovery in Jerusalem Confirms Old Testament Narrative

Unknown history of the Kingdoms of Israel and Judah

A very important discovery was made by archaeologists in the ancient city of
Jerusalem, which verifies key stories of the Bible, specifically the Old

It was revealed that a section of the wall in the 'heart' of the city had been
built by King Uzziah, just as the Bible says.

Contrary to popular belief, Hezekiah, who ruled Judea during the 7th and 8th
centuries BC, never fortified his city and thus left it defenseless against

We should make a historical clarification. Immediately after the death and end
of Solomon's reign, the mighty kingdom of Israel split into two kingdoms which
at times were also quite powerful.

Fakewar: Dubious unproven 'history'. 
According to the book: 'The Bible Unearthed' the empires of David and Solomon
were mythical ie. never existed. The first 'Old Testament' scrolls were written 
in Judah during the reign of King Josiah, and are largely political propaganda. 
Israel was most of the time Judah's enemy, hence 'OT' text is mostly verbal attack 
on the Northern Kingdom. 

The first was the kingdom of Judah with Jerusalem as its capital, and the
second retained the name of the kingdom of Israel, with Shechem as its capital.

The first consisted of the tribes of Judah and Benjamin while the second
consisted of the remaining 10 tribes.

For years, experts believed that Hezekiah built the city walls after seeing his
neighbors, the kingdom of Israel, destroyed by the attacks of the Assyrian

According to the Sun, recently, a ten-year study found that it was actually his
great-grandfather, King Uzziah, who built the walls after a massive earthquake.

Joe Uziel of the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) said: “For decades, it was
thought that this wall was built by Hezekiah, king of Judah.  But now it
becomes clear that it dates back to the days of King Uzziah, as mentioned in
the Bible.

Until now, many researchers assumed that the wall was built by Hezekiah during
his rebellion against Sennacherib, king of Assyria, in order to defend
Jerusalem during the Assyrian siege.  Now it is evident that the wall in its
eastern part, in the area of ​ the City of David, was built earlier,
shortly after the great earthquake of Jerusalem.'

The findings verify Old Testament scriptures that implied Uzziah built the

In the second book of Chronicles, a passage describes the event: 'Uzziah built
towers in Jerusalem at the Corner Gate, at the Valley Gate, and at the corner
of the wall, and fortified them.

'The religious scripture also details the earthquake that rocked the capital
2,800 years ago – which proved to be a real event after archaeologists
unearthed 'a layer of destruction' in 2021.  These recent discoveries give an
'air' of credibility to the Bible, at least with regard to its most
controversial part which is the Old Testament.

Bible accounts describe that the Kingdom of Judah arose out of the separation
of the United Kingdom of Israel (1020 to 930 BC) after the refusal of the
northern tribes to accept Rehoboam, the son of Solomon, as their king .

Initially, only the tribe of Judah remained loyal to the House of David, but
soon the tribe of Benjamin (Benjamin) was incorporated into Judea.

The two kingdoms, Judea in the south and Israel in the north, coexisted with
contradictions after the split until the destruction of the kingdom of Israel
by the Assyrians in 722/721 BC .

According to the biblical references, all the kings of Israel and most of Judea
were 'bad', because according to the Bible they failed to dominate monotheism.

Among the 'good' kings, Hezekiah (727-698 BC), is mentioned for his efforts to
suppress idolatry, but his successors, Manasseh of Judah (698-642 BC). AD), and
Amon (642-640 BC), were pagans, as a result of which the wrath of God fell on
the kingdom .

King Josiah (Josiah, 640-609 BC), restored the worship of Yahweh, but his
efforts came too late, as God's wrath brought the destruction of the kingdom by
the Neo-Babylonian Empire (587 BC .).

Without the Old Testament and its detailed knowledge much of what happens in
the New Testament and related to the Lord Jesus Christ cannot be understood.
