Armageddon Fortress May Hold Keys to Biblical History.

Israel Finkelstein, one of the preeminent current Israeli archeologists, believes that there is a way in which he can use the various strata of Meggido to date the stories of the Bible as well as provide dating for other historical events around the Mediterranean.  I like the ambition of this project but I hope that it doesn’t further complicate the already difficult idea of whether the bible is historically accurate (at least at some point in history).  I look forward to seeing what will ultimately come from this project.   See this piece on Finkelstein’s dating methods.
