Ancient Lost City of King David Uncovered Near Jerusalem

A LOST city that appeared in the Bible has been found near Jerusalem, experts say.

Historians believe they have uncovered a building belonging to the ancient settlement, which is linked to King David.

Archaeologists are divided over whether or not Biblical figures such as King David and King Solomon ever existed.

Professor Avraham Faust, co-head of the archaeological dig, said the latest find backs the case for the historical accuracy of the Bible.

He says the latest discovery is “part of the events in the Bible ascribed to the Kingdom of David”.

Biblical references claim King David is an ancestor of Jesus and would have existed around 1,000BC.
