Last week, excavation directors on Mount Zion announced they had discovered a destruction layer relating to the 2600-year-old burning of Jerusalem at the hands of the Babylonians. This destruction is detailed heavily in the biblical books of Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Kings and Chronicles.

On today’s program, host Brent Nagtegaal details the biblical account of the destruction, the corresponding archaeological proof, and the powerful message that discoveries from the destruction layer provide.
