Ancient Papyrus Mentions Jerusalem.
In 2017, archaeologist discovered the oldest non-biblical Hebrew-language reference to Jerusalem “Yerushalayim” was found on a small piece of papyrus recovered from antiquities robbers who said they had found it in a cave in the Judean desert. The inscription reads, “From the king’s maidservant, from Na’arat, jars of wine, to Jerusalem.” It was dated to the seventh century BCE. We have one other papyrus document from Israel’s First Temple Period has ever been found. Once again the testimony of the Hebrew Bible is historical accurate on the city of Jerusalem.
Have a blessed day!
