Enough politics. Let's get biblical
Archeological reports this week out of Israel speak of a cool finding.
Seems an item pertaining to the First Temple was discovered and it's referenced, albeit tangentially, in the bible.
A small stone seal belonging to the Temech family – servants of the First Temple who were exiled to Babylon following its destruction by the Babylonians in 586 BCE – was uncovered by an Israeli archeologist.
That's pretty neat, I think. Check out the full story here on the Jerusalem Post website.
Maybe they'll find the ark of the covenant soon too.
Now I feel like watching Indiana Jones again.
