“The ruins are the best example to date of the uncovered fortress city of King David,” said professors Yossi Garfinkel of Hebrew University and Saar Ganor, who led the excavations. “This is indisputable proof of the existence of a central authority in Judah during the time of King David.”

I guess it’s like this for me.
If King Dauid is proved to exist near the 10 century BCE, fine. But that doesn’t make him the giant killing, sister marrying, messianic seeder. That’s right, seeder. Say it out loud. Dauid may exist in some historical record, but David is still a literary contextualization.
