A Middle Eastern archaeologists state with repeated proofs that what is said in the Bible about the collapsing of the city; is historical fact. Professor Tom Meyer, a Middle East linguist at Shasta Bible College and Graduate School in California, has come to the conclusion that the team has found evidence of the fall of the ancient Lachish town of Shephelah in Israel.
Professor Mayer, in an interview with ‘Express’, revealed that the archaeological findings of British archaeologist Austin Henry from 1845-1847 have identified the names of more than 100 people mentioned in the Bible. “Tell Lachish” or “Tel Ed-Duir” is an ancient settlement found in clay tablets of the “Amarna Texts” between 1360 and 1332 BC. The city was conquered and destroyed by the Israelites and later made part of Israel. The Bible makes explicit mention of this. The city of Lachish was strongly fortified, however in 701 BC, the city was invaded and destroyed by Sennacherib.
The most recent evidence of the invasion of Sennacherib, one of the greatest battles mentioned in the Bible, is from the ancient Nineveh region of present-day northern Iraq, Meyer pointed out. The 40” wide and 17” high clay tablet known as the Siege of Lachish is now on display in the British Museum. During the siege, the sloping wall built to enter the fort can still be seen. In addition, Israeli archaeologists have found evidence of weapons and explosives. Professor Mayer points out that these findings are evidence that what the Bible says is true.
