A group of archaeologists has confirmed that part of the walls built in the heart of ancient Jerusalem was not built by King Hezekiah of Judah, but by his great-grandfather Uzziah. In a Bible story.

The study, carried out by the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA), Tel Aviv University and the Weizmann Institute of Science, is the first time David has been able to link the events recorded in the Bible with archaeological finds in the city of Science, according to a statement by the IAA.

For decades it was believed that the city expanded due to the influx of refugees from the Kingdom of Israel due to the Assyrian exile, however, recent discoveries show that such expansion towards Mount Zion occurred in the 9th century BC. C., about 100 years before the exile period.

The new research provides more than 100 radiocarbon dates of various organic materials taken from four different excavation areas of the City of David on the eastern and western slopes of the ancient city.

In this way, the study scientifically reconstructed the history of Jerusalem from 1200 BC. C.—the period before the reigns of David and Solomon—until the destruction of Babylon, in 586 B.C. C., explained Professor Yuval Gadot from the Department of Archeology at Tel Aviv University.

“In its eastern part, in the territory of the City of David, it has now been revealed that it was previously built as part of the renovation of the upward construction in the time of King Uzziah after the great earthquake in Jerusalem. After the wall was built and until the Babylonian destruction, the city continued to grow and flourish,” Israel Archaeology. Commission expert Joe Uziel said.

In the Old Testament, the second book of Chronicles states that “Uzziah also built towers in Jerusalem, at the corner gate, at the entrance of the valley, and at the corner of the wall, and fortified them.”

Meanwhile, the earthquake is quoted in Amos 1: “These are the words of Amos, one of the shepherds of Tekoa. It was a vision of Israel two years before the earthquake, when Uzziah was king of Judah and Jeroboam the son of Joash was king of Israel.”
