What can recent archaeological discoveries tell us about the historicity of the Bible? The miraculous destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah and the equally miraculous fall of Jericho seem far-fetched to modern-day skeptics and Bible critics. But is it reasonable to discount what’s written in the Bible when excavation findings have consistently corroborated events recorded in the Old Testament?
In this fascinating podcast episode, Frank invites best-selling author and archaeologist, Joel P. Kramer, to unpack some of the greatest archaeological evidence for the validity of both history and prophecy recorded in the Bible. On his popular YouTube channel, Expedition Bible, Joel documents many of the sites referenced in Scripture, giving viewers the opportunity to see the Bible come to life! Throughout their talk, Frank and Joel will cover topics like:
- What is Joel’s greatest personal find?
- Is there anything special about Ancient Babylon today?
- How has the secularization of archaeology affected the field?
- Why should biblical chronology be considered more reliable than pottery chronology?
- How was the Moabite Stone discovered and why is it considered one of the greatest archaeological finds of all time?
As you’ll hear during this episode, archaeology and the Bible work together like a jigsaw puzzle. As experts in the field continue to uncover ancient artifacts, the Bible gives context to many of those unique finds. To learn more about the exciting advances in biblical archaeology, be sure to check out Joel’s YouTube channel and purchase his best-selling book, ‘Where God Came Down.’
