Those that claim the Bible is just a book of man-made myths and stories have never put it to the test. 28% Over of the Bible is made up of prophecy. Over 2000 of these prophecies have been fulfilled, many down to very specific details. Who but God knows the future.
The Bible contains wisdom and advanced knowledge about nature, prophecy, medical, sanitation, and science. A knowledge that was literally thousands of years ahead of its time, proving that the scriptures were God inspired.
Archaeology has continued to prove the Bible true. Historical scholars claimed there was no proof that King Herod, Pontius Pilate, Nebuchadnezzar, Belshazzar, Hezekiah, Darius, and King David ever existed. But archaeological discoveries in recent years have proved they and many more biblical characters did exist. Archaeology has never proved the Bible false, rather it has substantiated the scriptures. Archaeologists continue to find cities and places mentioned in the Bible, such as in 2004 when they discovered the Siloam Pool where Jesus healed the blind man. And in September of 2015, the biblical city of Sodom was discovered. Excavations show that the city came to a sudden fiery end, just as portrayed in the Bible. In fact, all archaeology finds have agreed with the historical biblical accounts as recorded in the Bible. There has not been a single artifact or discovery made that would disprove what is written in The Word of God.
Dr. Nelson Glueck, the great Palestinian archaeologist, and President of the Hebrew Union College stated:
“As a matter of fact, it may be stated categorically that no archaeological discovery has ever controverted a Biblical reference. Scores of archaeological findings have been made which confirm in clear outline or exact detail historical statements in the Bible.”
I challenge those that don’t believe the Bible to read it and test the scriptures. Don’t just believe what others have told you. Don’t be afraid of finding out the truth. God is real. The Bible is His word. The day will come when everyone will be faced with the truth. Be Ready!
Knowing the truth is not a burden. It will set you free to live the joy-filled life, Christ wants for you.
