Archaeology Confirms That the Bible Is History

In 2007, assyriologist Dr Michael Jursa found the name Nebo-Sarsekim in a dirt report in the British Museum. The subtleties referenced in the tablet composed around 595 BC relate to what the Book of Jeremiah says regarding the Babylonian attack of Jerusalem that occurred during the rule of the Babylonian lord Nebuchadnezzar II.

The report is critical, as the Babylonian authority who momentarily shows up in Jeremiah 39:3 is an exceptionally minor person in the record, and shows the scriptural creator has recorded the realities accurately.

Nebo-Sarsekim was without a doubt present at the hour of the attack, very much like Jeremiah says.

Finding archeological help for the Bible has become so ordinary that in 2014 Biblical Archeology Review (BAR) distributed an article entitled Archeology Confirms 50 Real People in the Bible.

The title is fairly deceptive, however, as it just arrangements with Old Testament characters. Had it included individuals referenced in the New Testament, the rundown might have been significantly longer. In Jerusalem, for example, archeologists have uncovered lots of proof supporting the Bible’s set of experiences.

Sir William Ramsey (1852-1916) set out as a cynic to discredit the unwavering quality of the Bible. Yet, the more he dove into theĀ As in the days of Noah subtleties of the Acts of the Apostles, the more persuaded he turned into that Luke, its creator, was a top notch student of history and had recorded even little subtleties, like the titles of neighborhood Roman authorities, accurately.

This is surprisingly noteworthy, as the titles shifted by spot and time and a specific title could have been utilized for a concise period ever.

Apparently Luke committed no errors.

A comparative pattern can be tracked down in convictions about the dependability of the Old Testament. The Hittites were once remembered to be non-existent, until archeologists found proof that showed the Old Testament scholars had been correct.

Another intriguing point of interest has to do with Belshazzar and Nabonidus. In 1854 prehistorian Sir Henry Rawlinson, who was exhuming at the old city of Ur found an engraving, which expressed that Nabonidus proclaimed that his oldest child Bel-shar-usur (for example Belshazzar) could utilize the regal title.
