Bible True by Archeology

Updated on August 28, 2012
Source

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?

      I love history also, I do not want us to forget the past. It shaped our world. It would be wonderful also, if leaders of all of the countries could learn from the past.

      Again a interesting hub. I do believe bible is true. for I was a Hindu before I turned Christian 2 years ago and took Baptism just after 3 months after going to church. I felt GOD and I always say even if you can't theoretically prove it.. you must feel it!! plus good to read that many things in bible are appearing and are been proved true. I strongly stand with my decision of existence of GOD and truth of Bible. and about giants i'll be looking forward to your next hub as well I'll research on my own. see if I could find any evidence and fact :)

      Was it Book of Enoch? Just wondering. Thank you for you comment. Once again , your comments are wonderful, as usual.

      I will be addressing this subject from a theological perspective over on my other site which I cannot name or tell you about here accept to say the topic is on the Nepheliem and my site is called Ufology vs Theology. FYI - the 6th chapter of Genesis clearly tells us the Nepheliem were on the earth both before and AFTER the flood, so these Giants were definitely not entirely human or the flood would have destroyed them. Just a thought.

      Mathew James, the comments I read do help me learn more, and for that I do say thank you

      The giants are explained best in the Book of Enoch. They were a result of the fallen watchers lusting after humans. The offspring were the giants during the third world. That is why God flooded the earth and brought forth humanity with Noah. God flooded the earth to kill all the giants. They started eating humans for lack of other food.

      Thank you Raja, that is also an idea for two other hubs. My last one helped me understand how the internet can fool us. It helped me realize the internet is not the only place to find answers.

      Dear Michele

      Bible is definitely true and so are it's contents. Though the possibility of people making some small changes from time to time cannot be denied.

      Why dont you conduct such a study on Hinduism and Islam and share what you find.

      I certainly believe the Bible is true and believe that the giants there were real people and I've seen some really tall people and replicas of famous tall people, but I'm not so sure about some of those in U-Tube. Such an interesting hub.

      Thank you rdlang05 I have been looking for some more evidence of giants and and have found some, but am going to make a very small hub with those.

      I know from my archeology and physical anthropology classes that there have been fossils found that are called Gigantopithecus but they aren't human at all and dating shows that they are far older than Homo sapiens. It's thought that they were an ancient species of Ape but so little has been found (primarily just teeth and parts of the mandible) that there is still a great deal of mystery about it.

      Two links:

      http://blogs.smithsonianmag.com/hominids/2012/01/d...

      http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2005/12/12...

      It is fascinating how we can find sites and artifacts that are spoken about in the Bible. I think it makes it all seem easier to relate to. To think that the pot that some archeologist dug up could have been held by someone who shook the hand of Jesus is pretty amazing.

      Michele,

      Interesting hub. I'd like to see some of the links you used... especially that of the giants. I'm just not sure that youtube link is all together reliable.

      Also, while I agree that the Bible is true, I think an important distinction that should be made is between true historical events and metaphorical truths about God and man.

      Overall good hub though.

      Great information in this hub and definitely something for non-believers to think about! What about Noah's Ark and the Shroud of Tourin? So much. The finds you wrote about are new to me and I really enjoyed reading about them. Great job! voted up, thanks for SHARING.

      Fantastic Hub Michele. Good research and great information. There is so much on "giants" both in and outside the Bible which we have only begun to tap into as well archeology over all which supports the validity of the Bible. I voted UP, useful, interesting, awesome and beautiful. Good job. Lee

      Interesting article. Do you have links to some of the sources you used? Specifically about the giant skeletons. I don't remember covering them in any of my archeology or anthropology classes and I'd love to read more about it.

      Thank you, took your advice. Can't help myself when it comes to the bible. I tried, but you know me. I am feeling better, but still waiting for the doctor to call. So having to stay home and not do anything, I wrote a hub.
