Biblical Archaeology: Archaeology and the Historicity of the Bible

Facebooktwitter Share this with your Friends!

Israel may well be the most dug up, dug down, dirt-sifted country in the world.  Before there was an Israel, amateur and professional “biblical archaeologists” in the late 19th and early 20th century used their bibles as guides for digging locations, the intent being very much to “prove” that the Bible was absolutely authentic as an historical document.  But by roughly the middle of the 20th Century, archaeology had developed into a more scientifically objective field.  Field techniques became standardized, new tools and methods were developed, and findings were accepted whether they fit preconceived notions or not.  In this presentation, we will discuss a number of archaeologic findings relating to the historicity (i.e., the historical veracity) of the Bible and other texts from the same period.  At the end of our discussion, each person can make his or her own judgment about how much is real history and how much is myth.
