“Israeli archaeologists have recovered a seal containing the oldest mention of Bethlehem ever found. It dates back to 2,700 years old. “The Bible mentions Bethlehem. Now, this is proof that the city existed at the time” declared Eli Shukron, archaeologist of Israel Antiquities Authority. The seal, 1.5cm long, was found in the City of David, a huge archaeological site just outside the walls of Jerusalem where it is believed king David built his castle. Vatican Insider interviewed Simone Venturini, Bible expert and writer, researcher of the Secret Vatican Archives and professor of Biblical Science at the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross. He is also the author of the book ‘ The secret book of Jesus’ (Newton Compton).”
