Multiple categories of evidence support the historical accuracy of the Bible as well as its claim to divine authorship. Archaeologists have consistently discovered the names of government officials, kings, cities, and festivals mentioned in the Bible -- sometimes when historians didn't think such people or places existed.
For example, the Gospel of John tells of Jesus healing a cripple next to the Pool of Bethesda.
Historians and archaeologists have repeatedly confirmed its authenticity.Using the writers' own writing styles and personalities, God shows us who he is and what it's like to know him.At the time of their writing, there were still people alive who had heard Jesus speak, watched him heal people and perform miracles.So the early church readily accepted the four gospels because they agreed with what was already common knowledge about Jesus' life.These are called the four gospels, the first four books of the New Testament.
When historians try to determine if a biography is reliable, they ask, "How many other sources report the same details about this person? Imagine you are collecting biographies of President John F. You find many biographies describing his family, his presidency, his goal of putting a man on the moon, and his handling of the Cuban Missile Crisis.
I remember writing to the Smithsonian Institute to inquire about whether there was any evidence supporting the claims of Mormonism, only to be told in unequivocal terms that its archaeologists see 'no direct connection between the archaeology of the New World and the subject matter of the book.'" Archaeologists have never located cities, persons, names, or places mentioned in the Many of the ancient locations mentioned by Luke, in the Book of Acts in the New Testament, have been identified through archaeology.
"In all, Luke names thirty-two countries, fifty-four cities and nine islands without an error." Archaeology has also refuted many ill-founded theories about the Bible. It was pre-Mosaic; not only that, but it was pre-Abraham (2,000 B. It preceded Moses' writings by at least three centuries."Over 20,000 tablets, many containing law similar to the Deuteronomy law code.
We can be more certain of what we read about Jesus’ life and words, than we are certain of the writings of Caesar, Plato, Artistotle and Homer.
Four of the writers of the New Testament each wrote their own biography on the life of Jesus.
They checked and rechecked their work, to make sure it perfectly matched.
