Dr. Eilat Mazar, professor at Hebrew University in Jerusalem and the leader of the archaeological team digging at the City of David, has unearthed proof of another biblical story, this time a story of one of the ministers of King Zedekiah from the period of the Babylonian invasion of Jerusalem.
A completely in tact seal impression or "bula" bearing the name of Pashur was uncovered only a few feet away from a second such seal which was found three years ago, this first seal also belonging to a minister of King Zedekiah. Dr. Mazar remarked that this archaeological find is absolutely fantastic and very special, and again gives proof of the authority and authenticity of the biblical account of the city of Jerusalem and the Babylonian captivity of the Jewish people.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
Archaeological proof of the biblical book of Jeremiah has a historic significance as well as a profound prophetic significance for the Last Days.
The archaeological find of two different seal impressions with the names of two ministers in the court of the Jewish King Zedekiah dates back some 2,600 years ago and is of great historic significance. The two ministers are two of a number of men who encouraged King Zedekiah to put the prophet Jeremiah to death because he had prophesied that the king should surrender Jerusalem to the Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar instead of fighting the invading army, Jeremiah 38:1-4.
Jeremiah 50-51, which reveals the total destruction of Babylon, is for today or at least in the near future as it relates to the modern day name for Babylon, the nation of Iraq. Revelation 18 reveals that Babylon, modern day Iraq, will be the international headquarters for the one-world, economic, political, governmental system led by the one-world dictator, the Antichrist.
All that we see unfolding in Iraq today is indeed setting the stage for the prophecies in Jeremiah against Babylon. The archaeological find in Jerusalem is evidence that Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
