Just in time for Chanukah! A City of David archaeologist has discovered an intact oil lamp from the Second Temple period.

City of David archaeologist Rikki Zalut Zalut Har-Tuv recently discovered an intact, complete oil lamp dating back to the Second Temple period – from the 1st or 2nd century BCE, between the Hasmonean and Roman periods.

The lamp was found on the Old City of Jerusalem’s Pilgrimage Road, which goes from the Shiloah Pool to the area adjacent to the Western Wall.

Just amazing! So much for the denial of Jewish history in Jerusalem by the enemies of the Jewish state!
