Caution urged on King David palace claim

(Baptist Press) Archaeologists say they have uncovered the remains of King David’s palace on the site of the biblical battle between David and Goliath, providing key evidence for understanding the origins of the kingdom of Judah.

Southern Baptist archeology professors cautioned against concluding the remains are David’s actual palace, noting that the discovery in the least is a significant part of the Old Testament figure’s kingdom.

While one main structure was identified as the palace, a corresponding structure is believed to have been a large storage facility for collecting taxes in the form of agricultural products.
