KING SARGONcuneiform-Sargon

Scholars once claimed that no Assyrian King Sargon ever lived, because the Bible was THE ONLY record of such a person.    “In the year that Tartan came to Ashdod, when Sargon the king of Assyria sent him, and he fought against Ashdod and took it…” –  Isaiah 20:1.

King Sargon’s palace was discovered in Khorsabad, Iraq. The very event recorded in Isaiah 20-his capture of Ashdod-was recorded on the palace walls.
