Background of the Bible

"And it happened, when all our enemies heard of it, and all the nations around us saw these things, that they were very disheartened in their own eyes; for they perceived that this work was done by our God" (Nehemiah 6:16).

Bible and Archaeology Part 1

The study of archaeology can help fortify faith. It allows us to take a fascinating journey back in time to study the stones and artifacts that bear mute but compelling witness to the truth of Scripture. This series examines the discoveries that parallel and illuminate biblical accounts.

Bible and Archaeology Part 2

Evidence from archaeology is one great proof of biblical accuracy, and it is the focus of this series of articles. We offer you a sampling of the evidence that is available—documentation showing that details of the people, places and events described in the Bible—many of them mentioned only in passing—have been verified by archaeologists and historians. Many excellent books have been published in recent years that verify the dependability of Scripture, and no doubt more will follow as new discoveries come to light.
