Where Science and Faith Converge

King David’s Palace

Archeological digs in the Middle East have provided more evidence that the Bible gives an accurate record of history. Although King David is featured prominently in Old Testament history, archeological evidence of his existence has been sparse. However, recent excavations around Jerusalem have unearthed a large building and extravagant pottery that date to the time when David would have reigned. Such findings argue that ancient Jerusalem served as the central government of the region, as described in the Bible. While many people still “explain away” the corroboration with the Bible or dispute the dating, RTB’s creation model predicts that future finds will continue to affirm the historicity of the Scriptures.
