For eons, people assumed that ancient biblical Jerusalem was part of the Old City, an area inside modern-day Jerusalem — but a British archeologist shattered that definitive claim 150 years ago when he made a discovery that had reportedly been hidden for nearly 2,000 years.
Anarina Heymann, outreach coordinator for the City of David, told CBN News about how archeologist Charles Warren “rediscovered the ancient biblical Jerusalem” and how that finding has transformed the understanding of the city that King David designated as his capital 3,000 years ago.
Heymann explained that the archeological findings at the site have helped “bring the Bible to life” and how she believes, in turn, prophecy is being fulfilled. In the end, she said the excavations as well as the Bible’s contents are coming together to give a full picture of Jerusalem’s past.
“Something amazing is happening, because you see that we are now excavating this road and again prophecy is being fulfilled because it says in Isaiah, ‘Build up, build up the road, the highway,'” she said. “And it says, ‘Remove the stones for my peoples’ return.'”
