A recent archaeological discovery in Shiloh, Israel which is in the center part of the state of Israel in the area of Judea and Samaria reveals that Biblical history has been confirmed. A former mayor of Shiloh, Winkie Medad speaks of the significance of this archaeological find.
Winkie Medad: Well, in the political sense we're facing a major onslaught by either politicians, Atheists, or Agnostics who seek to negate anything that the Bible says. Therefore, to confirm in general, the Biblical narrative that when the Bible says someone was here, or an attack was made, or a defense was made, or priests serviced and worshiped at the Temple, or a king ruled, these are elements that are not from the ancient past in a mythological sense, but they actually happened.
For us it is very important because we believe and I think many good thinking people know that the Jewish people were created in the land of Israel, their culture, their religion, their history, and their future is bound up with this land. If we can confirm as much as possible the Biblical narrative it means that people who want to take away our national ethos are simply wrong. The element of uncovering one's past is always connected with realizing one's future. We know that the Arabs are very anxious about this because they have created a parallel universe in an attempt to create or invent for themselves an identity which has nothing to do with the reality.

The Jewish people created in the land of Israel speaks to the history but also the future of the Jewish state according to Bible prophecy.
The Israeli community of Shiloh located in Judea and Samaria dates back 3500 years to the time of the Tabernacle which was in Shiloh and housed the Ark of the Covenant, Joshua 18 and I Samuel 4. Shiloh is today a Jewish settlement which is indeed evidence of the fulfillment of Ezekiel 36 which is the promise of God to give the Jewish people their land in the last days.
This archaeological find of the location of the Tabernacle 3500 years ago gives confirmation to Biblical history, but it also sets the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
