In a groundbreaking discovery that could lend credence to a biblical narrative, researchers have reportedly unearthed an ancient military base that might corroborate a biblical account of divine intervention in the defense of Jerusalem against an Assyrian invasion, as reported by the Gateway Pundit.

The biblical narrative in question, dating back approximately 2,700 years, tells of God dispatching an angel to counter an Assyrian army set on seizing the Holy Land. The Angel of the Lord is said to have descended upon the encroaching forces, eliminating 185,000 soldiers in a single night. Until now, there has been no archaeological evidence to validate this event or the battle itself. However, archaeologist Stephen Compton, employing contemporary mapping techniques, asserts to have discovered compelling evidence that this monumental confrontation indeed took place.

According to a press release, a peer-reviewed paper in the esteemed journal Near Eastern Archaeology discloses the first-ever discoveries of ancient Assyrian military camps. These camps, established around 700 BC during military conquests across the Middle East, signify the expansion of the Assyrian Empire, which later served as a model for the subsequent Persian, Greek, and Roman empires.

The initial discovery was sparked by a scene etched into the stone walls of the Assyrian King Sennacherib’s palace, celebrating his conquest of Lachish, a city south of Jerusalem. Matching the landscape in this image to features of the actual landscape, using early aerial photographs of Lachish prior to modern development, led to a virtual map to the site of Sennacherib’s camp. This subsequently led to ruins similar in size and shape to the camp depicted in Sennacherib’s relief.

An archaeological survey of the site revealed no evidence of human habitation for 2600 years, followed by pottery sherds from the exact time of Sennacherib’s invasion of Lachish, after which it was again abandoned for centuries. Intriguingly, the ancient Arabic name for the ruins was Khirbet al Mudawwara, translating to “The Ruins of the Camp of the Invading Ruler.”

The Assyrians, an ancient civilization hailing from Mesopotamia, established a formidable empire in the Near East, as per Britannica. The Assyrians, often portrayed as fierce and ruthless conquerors, resided in the area of present-day northern Iraq and southeastern Turkey. Sennacherib reigned as the king of the Neo-Assyrian Empire from 705 BC until his demise in 681 BC.

Three biblical accounts, Isaiah 37:36-38, 2 Kings 19:35, and 2 Chronicles 32:21, detail how the Assyrian soldiers met their end on the eve of their assault on Jerusalem. The narrative in Isaiah 37:36-38 (New International Version) reads:

"Then the angel of the Lord went out and put to death a hundred and eighty-five thousand in the Assyrian camp. When the people got up the next morning—there were all the dead bodies! So Sennacherib king of Assyria broke camp and withdrew. He returned to Nineveh and stayed there."

This discovery, if validated, could provide a tangible link to a biblical narrative that has long been a matter of faith. The images from the peer-reviewed paper, The Trail of Sennacherib’s Siege Camps, by Stephen C. Compton, offer a glimpse into this potential historical and religious milestone.
