Description: If you visit Jerusalem's Old City as a tourist, you might be whisked off to a place called "Mount Zion" to see "King David's Tomb". As it turns out, this is not the real tomb of King David. So where is King David really buried? In this fascinating talk, based on a recent article in Biblical Archaeology Review (http://www.biblicalarchaeology.org/daily/biblical-sites-places/biblical-archaeology-sites/king-davids-tomb-a-closer-look), we will explore the probability that King David's tomb is in the southeastern portion of the City of David, near the bottom of the mountain slope that runs down from the Temple Mount on its southern side. In exploring this possibility, we will be transported back to the time of the Biblical Nehemia, as he makes his journey from Persia back to his ancient homeland with a singular vision in mind: to rebuild the broken walls of Jerusalem.
