Ad Feedback

Israeli archeologists have uncovered a massive wall in Jerusalem from Biblical times.

It is in an area known as the City of David, just outside the walls of Jerusalem's Old City.

And the Israel Antiquities Authority says the passage was probably built by Canaanites about 3,700 years ago during the time of Abraham.
    
Israel National News reports the double wall is over 26 feet high and more than 16 feet thick.
    
One expert says it's the type of wall the 12 spies might have seen when Moses sent them to explore the Promised Land.
    
That story is detailed in the Old Testament Book of Numbers.

The discovery marks the first time archeologists have found such a massive construction that old.
