Archeological corroboration of the Bible


If we are to believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, then it would make sense for us to see some historical accuracy. We should expect to see names of kings and locations mentioned in the Bible in other historical accounts.

The following are just a couple examples out of literally thousands:

Skeptics used to say there was no Assyrian king named Sargon as recorded in Isaiah 20:1, because this name was not known in any other record. Then, Sargon’s palace was discovered in Iraq. The exact event mentioned in Isaiah 20 (his capture of Ashdod) was recorded on the palace walls! Also, fragments of a stela (a poetic eulogy) memorializing the victory were found at Ashdod itself.

The Hittites were once thought to be a biblical legend, until their capital and records were discovered in Turkey.

There are so many archeological discoveries that corroborate the historical accounts told of in the Bible. Interestingly enough, the same evidence that supports the Bible, destroys the accounts mentioned in other religions. No other religion has evidence to support its claims like the Bible does.
