Archaeologists to break ground at biblical site where Ark of the Covenant stood
Times of Israel ^ | February 8, 2017 | ILAN BEN ZION

Israeli and French researchers to excavate ancient site of Kiryat Ye’arim, outside Jerusalem, one of the few unstudied biblical tels

One of the few remaining unstudied major biblical sites, where according to the Bible the Ark of the Covenant was kept for two decades, will be excavated by archaeologists this summer for the first time.

Organizers hope the anticipated study of Kiryat Ye’arim (also transliterated as Kiriath Jearim) will shed light on the site’s significance during the Iron Age, the period associated with the biblical account of King David.

Kiryat Ye’arim is mentioned over a dozen times in the Bible as a Judahite town situated near Jerusalem during the period of the judges and King David — the Iron Age, in archaeological terms.

No, no, no. The Jews were never in the land. It has always belonged to the poor palestinians. Israel stole the land. The Temple Mount and the Temples were never really there, though the muzzies continue to dig up everything around the Temple Mount they can and destroy it so they can erase all proof of the two Temples. No, izzlam is the right religion. It is the religion of SATAN!!! Run by Satan and ruled by Satan. These people were born in Satan’s bosom. They will forever, if they do not repent to the Christian and Jewish God of Heaven and Earth, seeking forgiveness for their sins and be Saved by the blood of Jesus Christ!!!!!!! Without that, they will join Satan in the Lake of Fire with ALL who refuse Him. Period. End of Statement. The TRUTH is told!
