Jerusalem- 3000 Year old Jewish text found- from time of king david- words decoded so far including the words "king" and "slave" and judge- hinting at legal meaning

CNN reports- an Israeli archeologist has found a scroll dating around 1000 B.C. this is around a thousand years before the dead sea scrolls, which verified the Roman Catholic view of what the majority of Jewish people considered the bible in Jesus' time. This latest +-3000 year old text is recorded on a piece of pottery, and CNN claims that there are the words "king", "judge", and "slave" on it, but the rest has yet to be deciphered. What makes the pottery more noteworthy, is that it is dated around the time of the rule of Israel's Saint King David- the second king of Israel. It is thought to possibly give new insights into Jewish laws at the times.
