Archaeology confirms the Bible’s historical accuracy


Archeologists have reliably found the names of government authorities, lords, urban areas, and celebrations referenced in the Bible – now and then when students of history didn’t think such individuals or spots existed. For instance, the Gospel of John recounts Jesus recuperating a disabled person by the Pool of Bethesda. The content even portrays the five porticoes (walkways) prompting the pool. Researchers didn’t think the pool existed, until archeologists thought that it was forty feet subterranean, complete with the five porticoes.1

The Bible has a colossal measure of chronicled detail, so not all things mention in it has yet been found through antiquarianism. In any case, not one archeological find has clashed with what the Bible records.2

Interestingly, correspondent Lee Strobel remarks about the Book of Mormon: “Antiquarianism has over and again neglected to substantiate its cases about occasions that as far as anyone knows happened quite a while in the past in the Americas. I kept in touch with the Smithsonian Institute to ask about whether there was any proof supporting the cases of Mormonism, just to be told in unequivocal terms that its archeologists see ‘no immediate association between the archaic exploration of the New World and the topic of the book.'” Archeologists have never found urban areas, people, names, or places referenced in the Book of Mormon.3

A large number of the antiquated areas referenced by Luke, in the Book of Acts in the New Testament, have been distinguished through antiquarianism. “Taking all things together, Luke names thirty-two nations, fifty-four urban areas and nine islands without an error.”4

Antiquarianism has additionally invalidated some badly established hypotheses about the Bible. For instance, a hypothesis still instructed in certain schools today affirms that Moses couldn’t have composed the Pentateuch (the initial five books of the Bible), since composing had not been imagined in his day. At that point archeologists found the Black Stele. “It had wedge-formed characters on it and contained the definite laws of Hammurabi. Is it true that it was post-Moses? No! It was pre-Mosaic; that, however it was pre-Abraham (2,000 B.C.). It went before Moses’ compositions by at any rate three centuries.
