Unveiling the Kings of Israel
Revealing the Bible’s Archaeological History
By David Down
The authority of the Bible faces a real crisis today. Reputable archaeologists have written articles in magazines and have appeared in television documentaries claiming that there is no record of the Israelites leaving Egypt in the Exodus. Or the conquest of Jericho! They go on to point out that there is no historical record of King David and his son, King Solomon, and that any biblical references are simply exaggerated or the product of an over-reliance on the biblical accounts of their lives.
Australian archaeologist, David Down, has over 40 years of experience as a field archaeologist. The premise of this book is to show that the dating systems being used to build a case against the Bible are wholly and entirely inaccurate. Once the correct dates are entered into the formula, the conclusions change quickly. There is clear evidence that one day, quite suddenly, a large number of Semitic slaves disappeared from Egypt! And evidence that they settled in another land! The case of Jericho? Archaeologists have found clear evidence that the walls of the city collapsed and that there was an entire layer of ash covering the city. It all lies in the dating systems.
Join David Down as he unearths the history of the small nation of Israel. Far from being a book of myths, the Bible is an amazing historical record. Each year, archaeology discoveries continue to prove its validity and significance.
