“A team of archaeologists in Israel has unearthed what's believed to be the royal seal of an Old Testament prince who is said to have tossed the prophet Jeremiah down a well,” reports Joe Kovac in WorldNetDaily.

"How absolutely fantastic and special this find is can only be realized when you hold in your hand this magnificent one-centimeter piece of clay and know that it survived 2,600 years in the debris of the destruction, and came to us complete and in perfect condition," archeologist Mazar said.

This Royal seal bears the name of Gedaliah, a prince to Judah's King Zedekiah, mentioned in the Old Testament Book of Jeremiah.

It was unearthed 600 feet south of Jerusalem’s Temple Mount.

Jeremiah’s writings tell us Gedahah was part of a group that put lowered the prophet into a well: "Then took they Jeremiah, and cast him into the dungeon of Malchiah the son of Hammelech, that was in the court of the prison: and they let down Jeremiah with cords. And in the dungeon there was no water, but mire: so Jeremiah sunk in the mire" (Jeremiah 38:6).

Archeologists keep proving the historical accuracy of the Bible.
