In , however, archaeologists discovered a stele a monumental stone slab near Tel Dan in Northern Israel. It dates to the ninth century before Jesus, and was apparently placed in this location to celebrate the victory of the Aramean king over the armies of Israel.
Related to the Hittites The historicity and cultural customs of the Patriarchs have been corroborated in clay tablets uncovered in the cities of Nuzi, Mari and Bogazkoy. Archaeological discoveries in these three cities have confirmed the existence of the Hittites. These findings also revealed an example of an ancient king with an incredible concentration of wealth. Prior to this discovery, skeptics doubted such ancient affluence was possible and considered the story of Solomon to be greatly exaggerated.
This discovery provided an example of such a situation, however.
This is consistent with two references of governors in 2 Kings 23 and 2 Chronicles One such person is Nebo-Sarsekim. The tablet is dated to the 10th year of the reign of Nebuchadnezzar II, BC, 12 years before the siege of Jerusalem, once again verifying the dating and record of the Old Testament.
Nehemiah lived during the period when Judah was a province of the Persian Empire, and he arrived in Jerusalem as governor in BC. With the permission of the Persian king, he decided to rebuild and restore the city after the destruction of the First Temple by the Babylonians which occurred a century earlier, in BC.
The Book of Nehemiah records the completion of this wall in just 52 days, and many historians did not believe this to be true, since the wall itself was never discovered. Experts now agree that the wall has been discovered along with the palace. Once again, the Old Testament has been corroborated.
What Is the Role of Archaeology in Establishing the Reliability of the Bible?
Related to the Philistines Skeptics once doubted the existence of the Philistines, the ancient enemies of the Israelites. This structure is dated to approx. Professor Finkelstein told the Jerusalem Post that Jewish archaeologists have found no historical or archaeological evidence to back the biblical narrative on the Exodus , the Jews' wandering in Sinai or Joshua's conquest of Canaan. On the alleged Temple of Solomon, Finkelstein said that there is no archaeological evidence to prove it really existed.
This is my career as an archaeologist.
I should tell them the truth. If the people are upset, that is not my problem. Conservative scholars [ who? Evangelical Old Testament scholar Walter C. Kaiser Jr. With increasing clarity, the setting of the Bible appears more vividly within the framework of general history It has continued to cast light, whether implicitly or explicitly, on many of the Bible's customs, cultures, and settings during various periods of history.
On the other hand, archaeology has also given rise to some real problems with regard to its findings. Thus, its work is an ongoing one that cannot be foreclosed too quickly or used merely as a confirming device. Kaiser goes on to detail case after case in which the Bible, he says, "has aided in the identification of missing persons, missing peoples, missing customs and settings. This is not to say that archaeology is a cure-all for all the challenges brought to the text--it is not!
There are some monstrous problems that remain--some created by the archaeological data itself. But since we have seen so many specific challenges over the years yield to such specific data in favor of the text, a presumption tends to build that we should go with the text until definite contrary information is available. This methodology that says that the text is innocent until proven guilty is not only recommended as a good procedure for American jurisprudence, but it is recommended in the area of examining the claims of the Scripture as well.
