It is mentioned not only in the Hebrew bible, but in the new testament. Our Uri Shapira has the story.  Many sites in the holy land have a luxurious mausoleum which are dedicated to a Muslim, Christian or Roman figure. However, these three impressive monuments are associated with Jewish characters. This is the Kidron Valley  Perhaps the most striking monument here is the Tomb of Absalom: carved out of rock, and this monument is around 19 meters high. Absalom is described as the rebel son of Kind David, who forced David to flee and almost took over the United Israeli Kingdo. In the book of Samuel Absalom orders the construction of a huge monument to himself. In 2003, Anthropologist Joe Zias from the Hebrew University deciphered an inscription on Absalom’s tomb which emphasis the theory that it is where Zechariah, father of John the Baptist, is buried, and perhaps other figures from the New Testament as well.  Joe Zias, anthropologist from science and archaeology at Hebrew University says,"This finding is very important to Christianity and I think to the history of Jerusalem as well. Because first of all we know the existence, for literary sources at least of these tombs and of these individuals, but we never knew exactly where they were buried and now we have evidence going back to the 4th century that perhaps this was the tomb of Zachariah, Shimon, and we hope that perhaps James as well." The third monument is "Zecheriah’s Tomb" and as opposed to the other monuments, it is completely carved out of solid rock. The tomb is dated to the late Hellenistic period. But tradition ties this site to one of the tragic stories of the bible, a story mentioned in the book of Chronicles. Right below the Mouth of Olives, The Kidron Valley was a substantial burial sites for Jews and Christians. It is also mentioned in the New Testament as one of the areas Jesus passed on his way to Bethany. One way or another, it is one of the most interesting and remarkable burial sites in the Holy Land

The translation of the Torah was started in 1955 and completed in 1962. Nevi'im was published in 1978 and Ketuvim in 1984. The entire Tanakh was revised and published in one volume in 1985, and a bilingual Hebrew- English version appeared in 1999 (also in one volume).

@Abnel Rashid are you triggered by the fact that your little "allah" told Moses that the land belongs to us and not to you? DEAL WITH IT. Your religion is a lie, anyway.

@Suzanne Baruch Actually I didn't but if it is in Wikipedia entry that means that everything I'm telling you is true and therefore you stole the land and you never were there in Jesus time ignoring Jew lady🤣🤣🤣

Abnel Rashid: you copied what you posted from the Wikipedia entry for "Jewish English Bible Translations." What it's talking about are the many ENGLISH translations of the Tanakh. Your UNRWA-built schools never taught you how to think, did they? 😂
