It definitely seems as if the more one digs into the earth over in the Middle East the more you find that digging into the Bible is worth it. The latest archaeological find is revealing just how massive/impressive the city of Gath would have been … I guess the ole’ giant of the said city needed some headroom when he came back home.
Time and time again (and time will continue to show) a shovel has uncovered what the Spirit of God never buried in the pages of God’s word, but yet people still find reasons to not believe.
I for one enjoy reading stories like the one referred to above, but whether or not the gates of a city are discovered, or whether the “proof” an individual’s existence is found on a piece of pottery, my faith will continue to rely upon the word that has outlasted the cities of the past – which is the same word that will remain until the heavenly city of the Zion reveals even more impressive gates.
“because “All flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of the grass. The grass withers, and its flower falls away, but the word of the Lord endures forever.” Now this is the word which by the gospel was preached to you.” (1 Peter 1:24-25)
