Ancient Papyrus Offers First Non-Biblical Mention of Jerusalem

 Israeli archaeologists unveiled the papyrus dating back to the seventh century B.C.

CHR Comment: The inscription provides evidence for an organized Judean kingdom in the century before the Babylonian exile. This papyrus is much, much older than the famous Dead Sea Scrolls, offering some hope that other early Hebrew texts may yet be discovered.
