ISIS may have inadvertently verified the Bible – WND

(WND) ISIS jihadists might have inadvertently documented the historicity of the Bible, according to a worldwide Christian ministry.Initial indications suggest ISIS destruction of the tomb of Jonah in Mosul, Iraq, “may actually have unearthed archaeological evidence that corroborates the historicity of a part of the Bible that has no parallel in the Quran,” said the Barnabas Fund.

When ISIS seized Mosul, it destroyed churches and blew up the shrine believed to comprise the tomb of the prophet Jonah and also dug deep tunnels underneath it.

Now that ISIS has been evicted from East Mosul, Iraqi archaeologists have found that its actions “have revealed an untouched 600 B.C. palace including a marble cuneiform inscription relating to King Esarhaddon.”
