My Comment: It just amazes everyone when they find proof of Biblical History. This is not only a find for Israel, but for Christianity. Jesus came from David’s bloodline. And yet the Israel Antiquity Authorities covered up this find for a while. They said it had to be handled with serious responsibility. The palestinian authority has continuously denied that Kind David existed, or that Israel has a history in this land. They have excavated and damaged and trashed archeological materials from under the Temple Mount. God has a history of sealing things until ‘the time of the end.’ Revelation chapter 5&6, Daniel 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased. Daniel 9:24
“Seventy weeks have been decreed for your people and your holy city, to finish the transgression, to make an end of sin, to make atonement for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the most holy place.

(Excerpt from Israel National News) The find is a decorated carved stone known as “a proto-aeolic capital” that is connected to a column. Only 30 such capitals have been found in Israel so far, and only five of them were found in areas in which Biblical-era kings lived.
Unlike all of the other proto-aeolic capitals found in Israel – this one is not separate from the column but connected to it. The weight of the column and capital are estimated to be about five tons.
“For reasons that are not completely clear,” wrote newspaper Makor Rishon when the find was first announced, “several authorities in Israel have decided to silence the find, which may mark a breakthrough in the perception of the period of King David and his son, Shlomo [Solomon], and of the entire Judean kingdom.”
