A fascinating find:
A stone seal bearing the name of one of the families who acted as servants in the First Temple and then returned to Jerusalem after being exiled to Babylonia has been uncovered in an archeological excavation in Jerusalem's City of David, a prominent Israeli archeologist said Wednesday.
It's exciting to know that there are still artifacts from this time period waiting to be discovered!
"The seal of the Temech family gives us a direct connection between archeology and the biblical sources and serves as actual evidence of a family mentioned in the Bible," she said. "One cannot help being astonished by the credibility of the biblical source as seen by the archaeological find."
Those of us who actually believe what the Bible says won't necessarily be astonished, but it is nevertheless a gift to hold in our hands evidences of the very people of whom Scripture speaks!
