When will the secular world acknowledge that the Bible is full of facts? When will they acknowledge the truth of God’s word?

TIMES OF ISRAEL: Monumental Iron Age remains from the ancient Philistine city of Gath, once the home of the legendary biblical giant Goliath, surfaced this summer during excavations by a Bar-Ilan University-led team of archaeologists.

Gath, one of the five cities of the ancient foes of the Israelites, was one of the largest cities in the region in the 10th and 9th centuries BCE. The Old Testament describes Gath as the home of Goliath, the enormous warrior killed with a slingshot by the young Israelite David who would go on to found a dynasty of kings.

“We knew that Philistine Gath in the tenth to ninth century (BCE) was a large city, perhaps the largest in the land at that time,” excavation leader Professor Aren Maeir told Live Science. “These monumental fortifications stress how large and mighty this city was.”

According to Maeir, the monumental gate is among the largest ever found in Israel and confirms that Gath was one of the most influential cities in the region at the time.

  1. It is easier not to believe so that mankind can freely wallow in sin and selfish living. The thought of judgment or thoughts that will reduce the free living without repercussions is unbearable and comprehend since the secular World think that you need to see and touch God in order to believe. It is only a fool that says that there is no God.
