Bible if one of the most unique and sacred texts which exist today. The Bible was written around 1500 years ago and by 40 writers. Bible caters factual news account of real events, places, people, and dialogue. But since decades historians have been debating on the authenticity of all these facts.
So let us have a look on some real proof about the facts,places, and events mentioned in the Bible.
How does archaeology support the Bible?
However, archaeology cannot support the fact that the Bible is God’s written word. But it can substantiate the Bible’s historical accuracy. Archaeologists have constantly discovered names of various government officials,kings cities, and festivals which are mentioned in the Bible. For example, in the Gospel of John, it is mentioned that Jesus heals a cripple next to the Pool of Bethesda. The text also mentions 5 porticoes which lead to the pool. Earlier scholars never believed that the pool existed, but later on, archaeologists had discovered the pool 40 feet below the ground and that too with all the 5 porticoes.
Has the Bible changed over time or do we read the originally written one?
A lot of people are aware that the Bible has been translated a large number of times which means it might have become corrupted through all the stages of translation if they were made from other translations. But all the translations have been actually translated from the original Greek, Hebrew and Aramaic text which are based on thousands of ancient manuscripts.
The Old Testaments which were found by an archaeological expedition in 1947 along the West Bank in Israel were dated to be 1000 years old which clearly point out to the era of the Christ.
