2,750-year-old temple found near Jerusalem

Can anything good come from Fox News? Apparently so.  Today they are reporting that a recently discovered dig is most likely the city of Mozah referenced in the Book of Joshua.

Discoveries like this are evidence that the Bible is not just accurate in spiritual and theological matters, but in scientific and historical matters too. Experts have proposed identifying this newly unearthed site with the Biblical settlement of Motza which is mentioned in the Book of Joshua.

Joshua 18:21-28 says, “Now the cities of the tribe of the children of Benjamin, according to their families, were Jericho, Beth Hoglah, Emek Keziz, Beth Arabah, Zemaraim, Bethel, Avim, Parah, Ophrah, Chephar Haammoni, Ophni, and Gaba: twelve cities with their villages; Gibeon, Ramah, Beeroth, Mizpah, Chephirah, MOZAH, Rekem, Irpeel, Taralah, Zelah, Eleph, Jebus (which is Jerusalem), Gibeath, and Kirjath: fourteen cities with their villages. This was the inheritance of the children of Benjamin according to their families.”
