It's funny, time and time again Archaeology supports Bible Claims. From Pontius Pilate to the 5 porches at the Pool of Bethesdah (sp?) to the Dead Sea Scrolls, to Biblical Manuscripts, it goes on and on. Paul said in 1 Cor that God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise. And that man through wisdom did not know God but that it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe... Paraphrased of course... Some people have thought of David as a mythical character and the stories of the old Testament as myth and folklore. But is it? If we can believe that God created the heavens and the earth meaning He can do anything, why couldn't He do things like that in the past? Makes sense to me. But if we start from the idea that miracles and such can't happen then we will forever be discounting evidence that could lead to a deeper trust in the reliability of the Bible. We think we have got God figured out, disproved and just when we feel smug, God allows for new evidence to validate His Word. He is good and wants people to believe and trust Him. He gives us proof but it's not our minds a lot of times that has the problem believing, it is our personal morality that doesn't like the prospect. I don't say this to get on anyone's case. I am the same way. But if God can do anything why can't the stories as written in the Old Testament happen? If they are just stories how can we trust anything else. I will shut up because I am rambling but the book The Case for the Resurrection of Jesus I think it is called by Gary Habermas and Case for Christ by Lee Strobel make such a compelling argument for the resurrection of Christ that it is hard based on the evidence to disprove. So if that is true, I can work my way back and see that the OT did happen especially if the Jesus who raised from the Dead seemed to think that it did since He quoted the Old Testament several times including the Flood which has been thought by skeptics to never have happened. Prove Jesus beyond a reasonable doubt, prove the OT.

B.C.E. - hehe

That's always slain me.
To "E" or not to "E"...

Bill,

Was Noah's Flood a global flood?

do you believe that people found Jesus' bones in a sarcophagus?
