Was this mining camp one of the sources of Solomon’s famous wealth?

    Mankind in that era is so fascinating. It would be amazing to have the ability to see back to that era for one day.

    Quick point of clarification for all the angry commenters below: you can separate the history of the Israelites in the Bible from the religious narrative of the Bible. It's not as though just because the Bible mentions the Temple or the Egyptians that there was no Temple or were no Egyptians.

    I believe that the God gifted the king with pure metal of copper which came out in molten state due to some volcanic activity in the area he ruled… Can anybody from Israel confirm the existence of native copper in Israel.. Pls

  • David Brown on April 17, 2020

    No this was not, and these devils know its not. They were from the caves formed my the building. Solomons caves are in JERUSALEM. Same area where we removed and hid the ARK.
