Seal of King Hezekiah Found in Excavation by Temple Mount

1697

An archeological team from the Hebrew University uncovered an impressive archeological find in Jerusalem directly south of the Temple Mount at the location of the ancient capital of Israel. The seal bears the impression “Hezekiah [son of] Ahaz, king of Judah”.

While there are existing seals bearing the name of King Hezekiah available of the Antiquities market, none have been proven to be found during an excavation. The significance of this current find is that the authenticity can hardly be challenged.

This historic discovery provides more archeological evidence to the Biblical stories we already believe to be true. In addition to verifying Biblical records, it also important in proving once again to the world of Jewish presence in the land, with Jerusalem as the capital, more than 2500 years ago.
