“The City of David” ✡ Amazing Discoveries in the City of David in Jerusalem – ISRAEL365

Nevertheless David took the stronghold of Zion;
the same is the City of David

וַיִּלְכֹּד דָּוִד אֵת מְצֻדַת צִיּוֹן–הִיא עִיר דָּוִד

שמואל ב ה:ז

va-yil-kod da-vid ayt m’-tzu-dat tzi-yon hee eer da-vid

Today’s Israel Inspiration

King David’s palace was amazingly discovered in the City of David, just outside the present walls of the Old City of Jerusalem. After years of archaeological excavations, an ancient Canaanite fortress was uncovered at this site as well. As today’s verse describes, when King David entered the city he conquered the “stronghold of Zion” from the pagan Jebusites, quite possibly this very fortress discovered thousands of years later! By wearing a piece of jewelry from the City of David, you carry the ancient biblical world with you, each gorgeous replica copying archaeological findings to the most minute detail.

Where the Bible Comes
to Life    

The City of David, located south of the Temple Mount, is rich with archeological treasures that map out the stories of the Bible and the Jewish kings.

World’s Oldest Man, 112, Survived Auschwitz and Lives in Israel

When God set down His ideal age limit in the Bible at 120 (Gen. 6:3), he may have had this man in mind: Holocaust survivor Yisrael Kristal of Haifa has been recognized as the oldest man alive today by the Guinness Book of World Records.

Today’s Israel Photo

Igor Farberov’s photo of Jerusalem’s Old City walls. The walls and gates were built in the early 16th c. by the Turkish Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent, who mistakenly excluded an important site. The City of David and David’s Palace were later discovered close to, but not within, the Sultan’s walls.

Yesterday’s Photo Trivia

Yesterday’s photo featured a roaring Sa’ars Fall in the Golan Heights of Northern Israel. The waterfalls are best visited in the winter or spring when the water and snow from Mount Hermon are still making their descent to the Sea of Galilee.
