Once in Royal David’s City

That’s the name of the Christmas carol that opens the Nine Lesson and Carols service at King’s College, Cambridge, each Christmas Eve. Some archeologists have suggested that Kings David and Solomon as described in the Bible are more legend than fact. However, a group of bullae (clay seals used with ancient government documents) dating from the 10th century BC was recently found in Israel. The existence of such bullae suggests that a very organized and centralized government existed in Israel in that era, something which tends to confirm the Biblical record.

  1. Archaeologly has consistently proved the veracity of the bible. It deems folly to state that it it isn’t true. The left and atheists don’t let facts get in the way of their beliefs. If they did, then they would have to acknowledge the existence of God.
