Achaeological Backing for the Bible

David and Solomon ruled over Israel about 3000 years ago establishing their country’s golden era.  Amazingly some people still contest this even in the face of more archaeological evidence recently unearthed.  Using conventional and standard archaeological methods, Israeli archaeologist Eliat Mazer showed strong indications of the age of some ancient fortifications matching the biblical account of David & Solomon’s constructions.

One opponent to the discovery begrudgingly said that the age of the fortifications may be accurate but prefers to doubt because it comes to close to backing what the Bible records regarding that period of time.  At least there is some honesty in the reasoning for fighting against the discovery.  Once again archaeology is backing the Bible but if a person is fighting believing in God it makes sense for them to fight anything that indicates the accuracy of God’s Word.
