2016 was a banner year for archaeological discoveries that confirm the reliability of the Bible. From the first-ever Philistine cemetery being unearthed, to a palace from the time of Solomon being discovered at Gezer, to the burial bed from the supposed tomb of Jesus being uncovered for the first time in 500 years, numerous finds illuminated the text of the Old and New Testaments. Some discoveries generated sensational headlines (like the first artifacts to have ever been unearthed in situ on the Temple Mount), while others, like ABR's discovery of numerous coins - including a pristine Tyrian shekel a Khirbet el-Maqatir - quietly added to our growing knowledge of biblical places. Here are the top finds in biblical archaeology in 2016, as chosen by several websites. What finds would be on your personal top ten list?
