Archaeological Discovery: 2,800-Year-Old Face, Possibly Of Famous Biblical King Ahab, Husband Of Jezebel, Found in Israel

A small carved sculpture discovered in the ancient city of Abel Beth Maacah in northern Israel, and dating back over 2,800 years, could be a depiction of a biblical king, according to archaeologists […] “Given that the head was found in a city that sat on the border of three different ancient kingdoms, we do not know whether it depicts the likes of King Ahab of Israel, King Hazael of Aram-Damascus, or King Ethbaal of Tyre, rulers known from the Bible and other sources. The head represents a royal enigma.” All three of the figures mentioned by Mullins are found in the Bible. King Ahab is said to have been the husband of the infamous Jezebel, who worshiped the pagan god Baal, with 1 Kings 16:30 explaining that he “did evil in the sight of the Lord, more than all who were before him.” King Hazael is mentioned in 1 Kings 19:15, with God telling the prophet Elijah to anoint Hazael king over Aram Damascus. King Ethbaal is found in 1 Kings 16:31, where he is referred to as the father of Jezebel. (READ MORE)
