Excavations on the walls of Jerusalem prove its passage

The announcement was made by researchers from the Israel Antiquities Authority, Tel Aviv University and the Weizmann Institute of Science, who Published a joint article in the American scientific journal PNAS (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences) in the last week of April.

The passage recounting the endeavors of Uzziah, considered a brilliant royal engineer, can be found in Chapter 26 of 2 Chronicles, found in both Jewish and Christian sacred text:

Uzziah built towers in Jerusalem at the Corner Gate, at the Valley Gate, and at the corner of the wall. He also built towers in the wilderness and dug many wells, as he had many flocks in the plain and plain. He cared for workers in his fields and vineyards, in the hills and in the fertile lands, because he loved agriculture. 2 Chronicles 26:9-10

Even in the biblical text, the Book of Amos is described as being dated “two years before the earthquake, when Uzziah was king of Judah.” According to carbon 14 dating of the found antiquities, the material is consistent with the period of actions attributed to the king in the written text.

“Until now, many researchers assumed that the wall was built by Hezekiah during his rebellion against Sennacherib, king of Assyria, to defend Jerusalem from an Assyrian siege. But now everything indicates that the wall is in its eastern part, in the area of Israeli Antiquities, in a statement to the public: “The City of David was built earlier, shortly after the Great Jerusalem Earthquake, as part of the construction of the city.”
