Archeology finds things continually…
Tue, April 8, 2014 | link
The trend of all knowledge at the present is to specialize, but archaeology has in it all the qualities that call for
the wide view of the human race, of its growth from the savage to the civilized, which is seen in all stages of social and
religious development.~ Margaret Murray
Scrabbling in the dust is not exactly what everyone thinks is a great job, but thank the Lord there are
those that find it fascinating.
This past year has been one for wonderful discoveries, of which the discovery of King David’s Palace at Khirbet
Qeiyafa is perhaps one of the best.
In July last year the Israel Antiquities Authority’s released a headline saying “King David’s Palace
was Uncovered in the Judean Shephelah”
One of the best part of this discover was a pillared storeroom having hundreds of jars having Judah seals.
which will benefit us all for years to come.
This Garfinkel discovery complements the other discovery in Jerusalem of massive structures from David’s
era which Eilat Mazar excavated.
Dusty ruins reveal a lot about the people of the day and more than that, they slap the academic documentary hypothesis
( which at one point was happy to claim David was a myth) in the face.
The bible is show to have authenticity in this period.
Those of us who are Christians
probably had no issue with that, but until these discoveries became evident, many others argued we were not understanding
the bible correctly.
amazing how many times this happens right.
Yet, let’s also be honest about the fact that we also interpret our bibles incorrectly quite often.
we get to heaven there is no perfection.
Today I felt it would be good to thank God for bright people, for preserving these ancient artifacts for
us, and for guiding us to find them.
Looking back always prompt me to look forward as well.
2 Peter 3 says
“Dear friends, this is now my second letter
to you. I have written both of them as reminders. I want to stir you up to think in a way that is pure. I want you to remember
the words the holy prophets spoke in the past. Remember the command our Lord and Savior gave through your apostles.
of all, here is what you must understand. In the last days people will make fun of the truth. They will laugh at it. They
will follow their own evil longings. They will say, “Where is this ‘return’ he promised? Everything goes
on in the same way it has since our people of long ago died. In fact, it has continued that way since God first created everything.”
Jesus is going to return and like people were mocking the Christians
and building up their “Documentary hypothesis” which got struck down, so people have a hypothesis that Christians
are crazy because Jesus has not come for 2000 years so why should he come again.
As Peter says “In the last
days people will make fun of the truth. They will laugh at it. They will follow their own evil longings.”
Every day we get to
know more about our bible and it has withstood scrutiny be the best brains over the ages. We can rest assured Jesus will return.
We need to claim that
fact and follow Peter’s advice “Dear friends, you already know that. So be on your
guard. Then you won’t be led down the wrong path by the mistakes of people who don’t obey the law. You won’t
fall from your safe position.”
Have a great day awaiting our Lords return!
