Researchers have found definitive proof that the Biblical stories of military campaigns against Israel and Judah were totally real.
A team of archaeologists in Israel have found evidence that proves ancient Egyptians, Arameans, Assyrians and Babylonians waged war against the kingdoms of Israel and Judah.
Using a new magnetic data tool, researchers were able to study Earth’s geomagnetic field to confirm these historical events occurred when the Bible says the did.
The study, published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, found proof in 21 different archaeological sites. From the army of Hazael destroying ancient Israeli cities to the Edomites decimating parts of Southern Judah, the team found evidence of dozens of Biblical military events.
The groundbreaking investigation has also provided new insights regarding the end of the Kingdom of Judah.
“The last days of the Kingdom of Judah are widely debated. Some researchers, relying on archaeological evidence, argue that Judah was not completely destroyed by the Babylonians. While Jerusalem and frontier cities in the Judean foothills ceased to exist, other towns in the Negev, the southern Judean Mountains and the southern Judean foothills remained almost unaffected,” said Professor Erez Ben Yosef.
The study adds to a growing body of evidence that the Bible is a true, accurate and a historical text.
