A 2,600 year old seal inscribed with a Biblical name excavated in Jerusalem

The bulla (seal impression) bearing the inscription ’(belonging) to Nathan-Melech, Servant of the King’ was discovered in the First Temple-period ruins of a house destroyed by Babylonians 2,600 years ago. The name Nathan-Melech appears in the Hebrew Bible, 2nd book of Kings 23:11, where he is described as an official in the court of King Josiah.

Those damn Israeli settlers with their evil Zionist time-traveling plots! They must have occupied the Palestinian territories in the ancient times only to plant archeological artifacts to legitimize their illegal occupation.

I love when ancient artifacts continually prove the accuracy of the Bible, particularly the KJB. It makes evolutionary theory look like a joke. Bring it on Bible haters, doesn’t change a thing!

Yet more proof that Israel is the ancestral home of Jews. This find dates Israel to at least 1000 years before anyone began making up Islam.
