Does archaeological evidence prove the Bible?
Archaeology is the study of non-perishable debris that has been left behind and has survived the ravages of time. People recover and study the remains of the past in order to achieve a better understanding of ancient people and what they did. All that archaeology can tell us is a sequence of cultural development, it cannot give us an exact time frame of events. Archaeology cannot prove the Bible is God’s Word, but it can verify some of the history contained in the Bible. Sodom and Gomorrah have been for many years considered mythological, however, past excavations uncovered about 15,000 tablets and some of these have mentioned Sodom and Gomorrah. Other finds include proof that there was a ruler named Belshazzar, the Hittites not only existed but also had a vast empire, there was a King Sargon. There are many more examples of how sources outside the Bible verifies the accuracies of what is inside the Bible.
All Your words are true; all Your righteous laws are eternal.
For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.
