JERUSALEM - In his latest attack against King David, Tel Aviv University archaeologist Israel Finklestein now says that the history of the United Monarchy under kings David and Solomon is really just a description of the magnificent kingdom of Jeroboam II, projected back by aggrandizing Jewish scribes centuries later.

On today’s program, host Brent Nagtegaal looks at a recent Haaretz article featuring this new theory and shows why it is dishonest to the facts on the ground, and in the Bible itself.
