To fundamentalist Christians, the Bible is an inerrant source of wisdom whose basis in reality should be unquestioned. To those whose faith is perhaps not quite as strong, independent corroboration of biblical events and people buttresses their beliefs. Unfortunately, such corroboration has been rare, despite the pursuit by generations of archeologists.

An inscription found in Egypt could be the third rediscovered ancient text that points to the existence of the biblical King David, according to Biblical Archeology Review, published here. Professor Kenneth Kitchen, an Egyptologist now retired from England's University of Liverpool, believes a list of place names from southern Judah found at the Temple of Amun in Karnak includes the phrase "Heights of David." The list dates from the 10th century BC, just after the time of King David.

Debate in the Israeli Parliament, rarely decorous these days, turned into bedlam Wednesday when a liberal member, arguing for equal rights for gays and lesbians in the army, suggested that ancient Israel's greatest king, David, was a homosexual--and quoted the Bible to try to prove it. Mourning the death of Jonathan in a disastrous battle with the Philistines, David calls him "most dear to me" and says, "Your love for me was wonderful, surpassing the love of women."

In his masterful letter Corey correctly states the Jewish Messianic tradition that the Messiah was to be a human priestly king, and not a supernatural being. The coming of the Messiah did not signal the end of the world. It signaled the return to the world of a golden age when God's teachings would again govern humankind's daily activities. The term "Messiah" was always used in Judaism in the context of the Hebrew phrase "ha-melech ha-maschiach" : "The Anointed King." It was the practice of the ancient Hebrews, in accordance with divine commandment, to anoint their kings and other persons selected by God with oil (from olives)

If you see a tall man rushing through a hotel lobby, looking like he's got too much to do, it could be the Rev. Floyd Flake. Dressed for Saturday morning in a navy blue suit and tie, running from a late plane to a book signing and two Sunday sermons before the redeye blows him back to New York for work on Monday, the understandably lean, elegant pastor is never too busy to be gracious.

The ancient tales present glorious scenes of a united monarchy of Israel familiar to every Bible reader: King David, so brave that he slew a giant. Solomon, so wise that he ruled a vast empire and built the first Jerusalem temple. But 3,000 years after the great monarchs are thought to have lived, their epic stories are at the center of a vitriolic debate today over how much is actually history.
