Did Archaeologists Just Discover the Stone Pillar Where Abraham Met Melchizedek?

An Israeli archaeologist has uncovered the remains of an altar believed to be from around the time when Abraham met the high priest Melchizedek in Jerusalem.

Archaeologist Eli Shukron has spent much of his life looking for Bible history in the City of David. Shukron gave CBN News an exclusive look at what he feels is one of his most important discoveries kept under lock and key that dates back 4000 years: a stone pillar.

Shukron says the pillar, found in the City of David, is just like the one described in Genesis 28 when Jacob had a dream in Bethel of a ladder reaching up to heaven. After the dream, Jacob said, "How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven! So Jacob rose up early in the morning and took the stone that he had put under his head, set it up as a pillar, and poured oil on top of it" (Gen. 28:18).

Shukron believes Melchizedek set a stone pillar up in Jerusalem just as Jacob did in Bethel.
