Archaeology validates the Bible—again!

Comment on this article

Archaeologists continue to discover more evidence that corroborates clear statements in the Bible.  Israeli archaeologists, excavating near Jerusalem’s Western Wall, recently unearthed what they believe to be a 2,000-year-old clay seal.  “The button-shaped object bears the Aramaic words ‘pure for God,’ suggesting it was used to certify food and animals used in sacrificial ceremonies.”  The Israel Antiquities Authority said, “it believed it was the first time such a seal had been excavated, providing direct archaeological evidence of ritual activity in the temple described in ancient texts” (Reuters, December 25, 2011).

Archaeological finds like this one are exciting because they help validate the authenticity of the Holy Bible as an historical document.  It also makes it more difficult for critics to continue to refer to the Bible as “just a book of fables.”

Jesus stated several times, “there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known” (Matthew 10:26, Mark 4:22, Luke 12:2).  Even though archaeological and historical evidence continues to emerge that supports the authenticity of Scripture, critics continue to ignore this evidence.
