3000-Year-Old Palace In Israel Linked To Biblical King David

Alan Boyle, Science Editor NBC News

Israeli archaeologists say they have found the remains of a palace that they believe was a seat of power for the biblical King David — but other experts say that claim shouldn't be taken as the gospel truth.

Jewish Love and Care for everyone has really hit its high water mark.

Support the Jewish Ottoman Land Trust by calling 1-800-Satans-Layer, that's 1-800-SATANSLAYER

The modern Nation of Israel,

The modern Nation of Israel, and the Biblical Twelve Tribes of Israel, have nothing in common besides the name, ask a modern supporter of the state of Israel, "What ever happened to the other eleven tribes" and watch them call you an anti Semite


TY emalvini

What a joy to see this on the top of DP topics. I watched a fantastic documentary about this a few weeks ago. It featured the woman who figured out where it was, and she had video and showed us clips of the dig. It's absolutely AMAZING.. and they way they do digs.. it looks like a lot of fun. They are removing a tremendous amount of dirt, but the way they do it, it's not hard, it's like a dance.

There are so many outstanding things happening in Israel. Everyday I think, "Wow, I would like to post this on DP", but the idea that it would be downvoted.. I don't care about my own down votes.. I rarely vote anymore.. I gave you my only vote of the day and it's an upvote. I just would not like for these fantastic events to be down voted.

So it's wonderful to come and see you have posted a link.. the video is AWESOME! Hope you see it. And isn't it interesting that things like this, King David's Palace FOUND!, is not in MSM???

TY again!

You're Welcome Grange!

Shabot Shalom!!!

shabbat shalom

shabbat shalom

Means 'peaceful sabbath' -- a common greeting when Shabbat is approaching..

Isn't that today?

Saturday.. Shabbot.. well, I heard it plenty yesterday, thought it was from yesterday afternoon to today's sundown.

TY for the lesson.

Lunar Sabbath

In Biblical times they followed a Lunar calender, not a Solar calender, Saturday was not the Sabbath, the quarters of the moon were, with a 2-3 day Feast at the end of the month on the New Moon, just like it tells you in your Bible


I was having a conversation about this.. first a 7th day Adventist got me thinking that rather than attending mass of Sunday, I should be going Saturday, and then a Reform Jewiush friend of mine was telling me what emalvini was saying.. that's it's the Sundown on Friday, and why the Temple has mass friday evening...

I think you bring up a real interesting perspective, based on my studies in WICCA/ Pagan, which also goes lunar.

My Bible doesn't tell me anything to be honest. I've attempted reading it on my own, but it didn't make sense. I only began Bible study three years ago, and I enjoy it, especially the scholarly reference books the instructor uses to aid understanding. My questions have been about Sadar, not the calendar.

And I will admit, as much as I enjoy Bible study and realize there are men and women who spend their entire lives studying the Bible, I am far behind in KNOWING THE BIBLE. If that offends you, I apologise.


of course you don't offend me, I was just trying to say that in the Old Testament it talks about New Moon feasts, and it says the sabbath is from sundown too sundown.

the moon cycle is about one month long, with each quarter seven days apart, leaving 6 work days, and 1 Sabbath, with a little extra while the moon is dark, that way anyone, rich or poor could look in the sky and know what day it was, so it makes a lot of sense.

I am sorry if you thought I was being condescending or something because I was not.

so I apologize as well, I guess that makes us even :)

as for Wicca it is a modern religion with no real cohesion, I see these kids online, saying stuff like:

"I worship the ancient wood goddess of Babylon, because her personality matches mine"

Crazy world, have a wonderful Sabbath no matter what day you keep it, every day belongs too the same Almighty God.

(((((((((Stonewall Jackson))))))))))))

TY. I appreciate what you told me about the Sabbath.. it does make sense, and it makes studying the Bible more interesting, and I greatly appreciate that gift from you. I will always remember you for this lesson.. May God's mercy bless you abundantly.

May God bless you as well,

May God bless you as well, I'm no expert but I have read the entire Bible a couple of times, believe me it is worth the time.

it is the best book ever, just try to be a little careful with the notes in the study Bibles, often they try to downplay things they don't agree with, no matter what their beliefs all scholars have biases.

I read it first, when I was about 8 years old, so I had no preconceived notions, other than what my Parents taught me.

I am flattered that you think I taught you something, because I am probably about 35 years younger than you think I am :)


My father was an objectivist and no Bibles were allowed in the house.

I don't believe wisdom has anything to do with age, but everything to do with the heart, and mind, working in unison.

David Risked Death By Entering The Holy of Holies

David had strayed from his first estate - His original obedience to God and his laws. He had sinned a great sin. He was very troubled by this sin and risked his death by entering the holy of holies.

Only the priests of Levi were instructed and allowed to enter the holy sanctuary.

David being slain with sorrow went in to pray for Gods forgiveness and survived because God loved him and knew his heart was contrite and forgave David for his sin.

This is the word of the lord..

God said to the great prophet Samuel, "David a man from my own heart" anoint him with oil and prepare him to led my people, for i have looked into the heart of Saul and have found him unworthy to be king.

David loved God at 12 years old. He had faith in the words of God and became outraged at the mocking of God by the Philistines. With overwhelming odds, David killed the 9 foot tall giant Goliath with a single stone. David's faith and love of God was his comfort and his shield and would protect him all of his life.

When he was very old, King David died and word went out throughout all the land that a great man had died. There was fasting, lamentation and mourning for 40 days because the people had lost a great king.

Biblical Marriage

Let's not forget the 8+ wives and the dozens of hookers. True man of God.

Check out for activism and news.

There Was No Law For A King Not to Have Multiple Wives

Don't Judge God, because in that way you open yourself open for judgement from him..


David kicked Ass!!!

You know it, and I know it, he killed this Giant, and convinced a bunch of hot Girls too live with him for the rest of their lives, envious? :)

and yes he was a True man of God.

I find it funny that so many self proclaimed libertarians will get red in the face if someone dares suggest that same sex marriage is wrong, but then these same people attack the Idea that a Man can be married too more than one Woman at the same time.

by the way Concubines are not hookers

sex slaves

You're right sex slave sounds better than indentured hooker.

Check out for activism and news.


where do I find some? I need me a harem.
