A few small pieces of clay, supposedly royal stamps, have been discovered recently in Jerusalem and this could change the perspective we currently have on the most sacred book in all of Christendom, the Bible. These objects would show that some of the passages found in scripture that have been in doubt for a long time gain more credibility, such as those in which kings appear. David and Solomon, where there are many scholars and scholars who came to affirm that both they and their reigns were only legend.
Both kings and their reigns were of great importance to much of the population as related in different passages of the Old Testament, but the only proof of its existence is the scriptures, which is why many people consider these two characters as part of a legend that was magnified by those who wrote or transcribed the passages of the Bible, giving them a great importance that they should not have, although all this has changed with this discovery .
According to many researchers, the translation errors, the large number of people who wrote it and the exaggeration of some data or the omission of others, means that many of the things that appear in that book can be questioned before the absence of physical evidence beyond mere written words.
On this occasion these small pieces of clay could point to it is a kind of royal seals, although they still have to be studied in depth to verify that they really are what they supposedly appear to be, although it has already been considered that, whether or not they are real stamps, these pieces can provide great information that would be useful in further investigations in this area, which surely still has many secrets to reveal.
Likewise, another piece of what appears to be a jar with a Hebrew inscription has been discovered and according to the first studies carried out by the archaeologist Eilat Mazar, from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, everything indicates that It was the work of someone who was not Jewish but lived in this city.
The finding has not gone unnoticed by anyone and Douglas Petrovitch, from the University of Toronto, has also ensured that the inscription is in Hebrew, since they coincide with those of other contemporary inscriptions, a predominant language in Jerusalem in the 10th century BC., which chronologically coincides with the reign of both David and Solomon.
For these and other researchers, this is one of the proofs that confirms that David and Solomon existed and they are not a collection of stories about the kings of Israel, which little by little have been misrepresented or even lost over the years, one of the arguments most used by the most skeptical scholars. Now we will have to wait to see what is the result of the analysis to which this object will be subjected and those that are in the same excavation.
