A word about Tel Dan and the “House of David”

Interestingly, in a scientific world were prejudice and precondition are supposed to be null and void and observation is supposed to trump all, those scholars lining up against Tel Dan actually referring to a real king of Israel named David are those who reject out of hand any reliability in the Biblical texts themselves.

In a post-modern world it’s too easy to say that there is no such thing as objectivity.  What is at stake here is reliability of the Biblical documents themselves.

Consider it closely.  If these inscriptions actually attest to THE King David, that, in and of itself, lends some objective credibility to the accounts of the Bible.

Keep digging!  I can’t wait to hear about what you folks find next.
