Early Hebrew Text Found

The earliest Hebrew text has just been discovered as you can read about here.  The text comes from the time of King David in the tenth century BC.  It has not been completely translated but it seems to have the word for ‘king.’  It will be interesting to see what this means for the minimalist position that discounts the early history of Israel including the reigns of David and Solomon.  One correction from the story: it meantions the kingdom of Judea.  It is possibly from Judah or the unified kingdom of Israel but ‘Judea’ did not exist until almost a thousand years after this text.
