Les archéologues dévoilés…

Archaeology is the truth and Finkesltein is its prophet

The David and Solomon’s kingdoms are no longer considered as historical by minimalist archeologists. According to Israel Finkelstein and Neil Silberman, authors of The Bible Unearthed: Archaeology’s New Vision of Ancient Israel and the Origin of Its Sacred Texts, at the time of the kingdoms of David and Solomon, Jerusalem was populated by only a few hundred residents or less, which is insufficient for an empire stretching from the Euphrates to Eilath. They suggest that due to religious prejudice, the authors of the Bible suppressed the achievements of the Omrides. Some Biblical minimalists like Thomas L. Thompson go further, arguing that Jerusalem became a city and capable of being a state capital only in the mid-seventh century. Likewise, Finkelstein and others consider the claimed size of Solomon’s temple implausible. A review of methods and arguments used by these minimalists shows that they are impostors for writing history. The historical testimonies dated by a chronology anchored on absolute dates (backbone of history) are replaced by archaeological remains dated by carbon-14 (backbone of myths). The goal of these unfounded claims is clearly the charring of biblical accounts.

Après les égyptologues, Gérard Gertoux charge cette fois les archéologues. Il faut dire qu’il y a de quoi faire. Le titre à lui seul donne le ton, et prélude à la matière. Découvrez son nouvel article : David and Solomon’s kingdoms : legend or history?

    Ce sont des fous, ils ne pourront jamais annuler ce que Dieu lui même a fait consigner dans sa parole

  2. Bonjour,

    Je sais, bien sûr, que vous n’approuverez pas ma position, et que c’est dur (euphémisme) à admettre pour ceux adhèrent à une lecture littérale de la Bible, mais je suis convaincu que le travail de Finkesltein est remarquable, et qu’il est près de la vérité.
