Indiana Hoenlein and the Lost Philistine Gates of Goliath. @ELALUSA Report w/Malcolm Hoenlein @Confofpres. @ThadMcCotter

A massive gate unearthed in Israel may have marked the entrance to a biblical city that, at its heyday, was the biggest metropolis in the region. The town, called Gath, was occupied until the ninth century B.C. In biblical accounts, the Philistines — the mortal enemies of the Israelites — ruled the city. The Old Testament also describes Gath as the home of Goliath, the giant warrior whom the Israelite King David felled with a slingshot. The new findings reveal just how impressive the ancient Philistine city once was, said lead archaeologist of the current excavation, Aren Maeir, of Bar-Ilan University in Israel. https://www.livescience.com/51737-goliath-city-gates-uncovered-israel.html
