A new exhibit, 'In the Valley of David and Goliath,' has opened at the Bible Lands Museum in Jerusalem. It presents the recent archaeological evidence for the kingdom of David discovered in the Valley of Elah. The exhibit displays artifacts discovered at Khirbet Qeiyafa, quite possibly the biblical city of Sha'arayim (which means 'two gates' in Hebrew) of 1 Sam 17:52 and 1 Chr 4:31. Almost all of the artifacts in the exhibit were excavated at the site, including tools, weapons and cookware, as well as an inscription that may be the earliest form of Hebrew writing discovered to date. In addition, the Tel Dan Stele, with its famous 'House of David' inscription, is on loan to the Bible Lands Museum for the exhibit.
