Archeologists have come across an ancient piece of work, which they suggest could be related to Biblical tale of Samson. A seal, which in size is smaller to a penny, demonstrates a human fighting with a lion.
Tel Aviv University archaeologist Shlomo Bunimovitz said, "The find doesn't prove that the legendary strongman, who was said to have torn apart a lion, actually lived, but it does anchor the story in an archaeological setting".
It has been reported that the archeologists have been able to discover the seal at Beth Shemesh. This has been termed to be an archaeological site, which lie between two ancient cities, Zorah and Eshtaol. The site is approximately 20km towards the west from Jerusalem. The seal has been suggested to be belonging to the 12th century B. C.
In a statement, Bunimovitz asserted that if what has been depicted in the seal is true and they follow it, then Samson legend must have existed during that time and that too near or in the area of Beth Shemesh. Rather, even the date of his existence can be calculated using the ancient seal.
Samson is a famous legend, mentioned in the Book of Judges. However, it majorly raises controversies, as many don't believe in it.
