Archaeologists digging near the Temple Mount in Jerusalem found a seal belonging to the Biblical King Hezekiah, who reigned between 727-698 BC.
The seal measures 9.7 X 8.6 mm. King Hezekiah’s seal was imprinted on a 3 mm thick bulla (soft clay). One can clearly see the depression of the frame of the king’s ring, as the seal was pressed. These types of seals were used to authenticate the king’s decrees and his belongings, which basically were used as his signature.
The impression bears an inscription in ancient Hebrew script reading: (in English) “Belonging to Hezekiah [son of] Ahaz king of Judah,” reported IsraelNationalNews.com.
The seal also includes a two-winged sun, with the wings turned downward, with two ankh symbols, which signifies life.
This is the first seal impression ever found of an Israelite or Judean king in a scientific archaeological excavation, a very significant find.
The discovery was made by the Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s Institute of Archaeology, under the direction of Dr Eilat Mazar.
Those who believe the Holy Word of God is myth had better rethink their theology!
The Word of God tells us,
“For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse” Romans 1:20.
