A Mindful Talmudic View of the World
The genetic record alone proves that all modern Jews are descendants from the inhabitants of the ancient kingdoms of Israel and Judah. There is no doubt that Jerusalem is an ancient Jewish city, much in the same way that Athens is an ancient Greek city. Whether these specific rocks as described in the Old Testament are specifically the City of David is up for debate. The Old Testament, much like the Illiad is part history and part myth. The exercise of uncovering them is certainly a valuable archeological mission as far as Jewish history is concerned.
