Archaeological and Scientific Evidence

Bible ArchaeologyMore and more there is archaeological and scientific evidence proving the Bible is true. Some of the books above give information on what scientists are finding that proves the Creation Story, the Flood, Jesus, etc.

Because there are so many websites on Archaeology we have not taken the time to share all the discoveries that prove the validity of the Bible.

There is one thing we want to make clear regarding relics and artifacts that appear to defend the Bible. Not everything that is presented as real is real. We believe there are many hoaxes and false artifacts. For us, unless the artifact is found at an actual dig with a variety of witnesses, we do not accept the artifact as reliable. With the technology of today, individuals can create false relics. This said, there are plenty of reliable relics that even skeptics cannot deny.

There is an excellent site called Reasons To Believe that provides Answers to Skeptics. it is directed toward those who are more analytical, logical, and scientific oriented.

Archaeological Discoveries that confirm Biblical Accounts:
From the radio show "The Book and The Spade" by Gordon Govier and Keith Sohoville.
An inscription at a Roman theater in Caesarea Martima reading, "Pontius Pilate, prefect of Judea".

An inscription found in Northern Israel mentioning King David's dynasty. The inscription is the oldest reference to any Biblical figure outside the Bible.

The discovery of an ossuary, a stone box used for retaining bones of the deceased, inscribed with the name of Caiaphas, the high priest who presided over the trial of Jesus shortly before his crucifixion.

From the Jerusalem Christian Review
    JERUSALEM - Israeli archeologists have uncovered a 1st century cave, in a suburb south of Jerusalem, which served as a tomb to a family of disciples of Jesus Christ.

    The burial cave, carved in the mountainside, off the Kidron Valley, contained several coffins, with names engraved on their sides, as well as signs of the cross. These inscriptions identified the cave as the burial vault of the Barsabas family. This family is well known to us, since several of its members are mentioned in the book of Acts. The tomb remained hidden for nearly 2000 years.

    Eminent Jerusalem Historian, Prof. Ory N. Mazar, states that "at least some members of this family were among the very first disciples of Christ."

Historical Evidence That Proves the Bible

Biblical Archaeology Society

Reasons To Believe
Reasons To Believe is an international, interdenominational ministry established to communicate the uniquely factual basis for belief in the Bible as the wholly true Word of God and for personal faith in Jesus Christ. GREAT SITE for Spiritual Seekers or those wanting scientific evidence to prove the truths of the Bible.

Disclaimer-In His Steps Ministries does not endorse or agree with some of the doctrinal beliefs or teachings of sites that are recommended throughout our website. These sites are only given as additional resources that have some items that we find of value. We acknowledge that as in every other religion or belief system, there are individuals or organizations in Christianity that are 'flakey', 'off base', claim facts that are fiction, etc. Use wisdom and the intelligence that God has given you, even those of you who do not believe there is a God.

It should be noted that Christianity is a religion based upon relationship, not knowledge. It is a religion of faith not logic. The information provided is to help answer questions, but ultimately you must believe in the Bible by faith. Because of who God is, we will always have questions. In order to have eternal life, we need to believe the words of Jesus that we are sinners and are in need of a Lord and Savior.
