The destruction of Jerusalem first occurred at the hands of the Babylonians. And the ruins found prove the Bible’s truth more!
What the Proof of the Destruction of Jerusalem Means
This is an absolutely unbelievable discovery. To find pockets of ash from the destruction of the first Temple which happened thousands of years ago is incredible. The world wants to deny the Jewish connection to Jerusalem and Israel. They want to deny the Jewish people the right to live in their ancestral homeland. But how do they respond to a finding like this one? How do they ignore the fact that there is proof of the destruction of Jerusalem; proof that the Bible is true? If there was a destruction of the Temples, that means that there were Temples that once stood – Jewish Temples. It means that the Jews were living in Israel and were exiled long before the religion of Islam ever even existed.
Rising from the Ashes
The Jewish people have risen from the ashes many times. They have experienced national suffering, exile, destruction, and pain throughout history. And yet, each time, they have gotten back up. They have not despaired. They have rebuilt. It is truly miraculous.
And the archaeological discovery of ash from the burning of Jerusalem is proof of the strength of the Jewish people. Thousands of years later, Jews have discovered tangible evidence of the burning that took place in their holy city. The Babylonians, the Romans, and many other nations tried to obliterate the Jews. They tried to make them suffer enough that they would never recover.
But they failed. The Jews have come back to their homeland to discover the ash that didn’t destroy them.
