The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2021


Sean Kingsley

Maritime archaeologist

British maritime archaeologist Dr. Sean Kingsley announced a sensational discovery in April: evidence that proved the existence of the Israelite kingdom ruled by King Solomon. Based on his exploration of the Mediterranean basin for evidence of the empire that the Bible says Solomon built in alliance with the Phoenician king Hiram, Kingsley asserted that his findings appeared to confirm that Solomon was indeed the wealthy and powerful monarch described in the Bible who built a maritime empire through an alliance with the ancient Phoenicians. Kingsley added that while archeological excavations in Israel had found “nothing definitive that fits the book of Kings’ and Chronicles’ epic accounts of Solomon’s palace and temple, by exploring traces of ports, warehouses, industry, and shipwrecks, new evidence shakes up the quest for truth.” (Photo: courtesy)
