Bible True by Archeology
Some people believe the bible is the true word of God and some do not. Is there anyway to prove the bible is true? Archeologists have been finding evidence that the bible is true, they have found cities that have been names in the bible and more. There is a lot of evidence of the truth of the bible, but I am only going to mention a few.
Archeologists have found a city that was named Arad. Arad is found in Numbers 21:1 "When the Canaanite, the King of Arad, who live in the city of Negev, Heard that Israel was coming, by the way of Artharim, he fought against them and then took some of them captive."
This city is also mentioned in Numbers 33:40 "Now the Canaanite , the King of Arad who lived in Negev, in the land of Canaan, heard of the coming of the sons of Israel."
What is interesting is Archeologists have found the city of Arad, which is about 30 Kilometers north east from the city of Beersheba in Israel, and that is where they have also found the remains of a Hebrew Temple.
There have been many more cities Archeologists have found, but my favorite is the cite of Dan. Judges 18:19 "And then they called the name of the city Dan, after the name of their father, who was born in Israel. The name of the city was formally Laish." The excavation of Dan began in 1966 under the direction of Horn, Siegfrid, H.( Biblical Archeology: A generation of Discover. 1985 pg.42.) What really has excited me about this discovery, is that Dan was the name of my biological father.
Another very interesting find, is not a city. Archeologists have found giant skeletons. The bible also tell us about Giants. Genesis 6:4 "There were giants in the in earth in those days; and also after that. The Sons of came unto the daughter's of men, and the bore children to them, the same became mighty men which were old, men or renown." This came from the Authorized King James Version of the bible. It was given to my father in 1940.
There are many more Archeological finds that have been uncovered. Many Egypt, Israel, Iraq, and Iran which were found some years ago. We cannot find any more right now, which is obvious. How many more are there left to be found, we don't know. There are also writings that are hidden in the Vatican, that we cannot see. How much is left for us to find? I hope someday we will find out. About the video below, some have told me it is fake. What do you think?
