First of all, many thanks for the dvd’s & booklet & all the research & effort you have gone through to enable me to have this information about my family tree, I really enjoyed whatching my dvd.
We live very busy & active lives here, would you believe it. However, at last, I shall endeavour to answer your questions concerning the reasons I believe in the Bible to be the Words of God, through evidence ! In doing so, we will be able to answer these following questions :-
1. Is the Bible the word of God, or the word of man?
2.Is the bible full of Myths and legends and fairy tails, or is it historically reliable?
3.Is all of it reliable, or just part of it, is it all true and trustworthy?
4.Can the Bible, being; after being translated so many times really be accurate?
5.What makes the Bible unique to all other books?
Today we may cover just the first reason why I believe in the Bible.
Archaeology – It is a historically accurate book.
There are 25.000 sights; digs; that all correspond with events, people, names, locations, and cities, it is rooted in history.
In the 1930s & 40s, people questioned the existance of the Hitite Civilization, but about a decade ago, sightings have been discovered varifying the Hitite civilization, plus the royal House of Nebuchadnezzer. In addition, mulitple incriptions have been discovered to king David, King Solomon’s great Empire :-
In Jerusalem, nothing of his work remains, in fulfilment of the Lord’s prophecy that “not one stone should remain upon another” Matthew 24:2, except for the Wailing Wall. According to Scripture, there are three other cities which Solomon built with his special style as at Jerusalem. this style is described in 1 Kings 9;15.
In the new testament, Luke , the historian wrote these words, – Luke 1:1-4, v 3,4.- It seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all of all things from the very first, to write to you an orderly account, most excellent Theophilus. That you may know the certainty of those things in which you were instructed.
Also, in chapter 2:v2 , he reports about a census that first took place while Quirinius was governing Syria. A Papyrus has been found, giving details about the census, and how every 14yrs, the Romans organized a census to be made, also during the time of Caesar Augustus, verse 1, and evidence discovered of Quirinius, governor of Syria.
No archaeolical discovery has contradicted the accuracy of the Bible. The Bible is rooted in history, It is not a book about myths or legends
Next time I write I could give you more proof & evidence in this area with more details, or I will cover my next reason why I believe in the Bible.
Love, evidence & truth,
