Archaeological research in the Land of Israel has provided fascinating insight into biblical accounts of ancient Jewish history, including King David’s capture of Jerusalem.¬†

King David, crowned King of Israel almost 3,000 years ago, decided that Jerusalem, which was already positioned at the heart of Israelite territory, will be the capital of the royal kingdom.

But how did he capture the city from the powerful Canaanites? Certainly not through conventional tactics.

In 1867, Captain Charles Warren made an amazing discovery that shed light on the biblical text describing the victory of King David’s army.

Watch this video for some insight into a biblical account of history which became clearer thanks to continued research in the Old City of Jerusalem, the eternal capital of the Jewish People.
