The Book Of Acts Chapter

But Peter and the other apostles answered and said We ought to obey God rather than men. The God of our fathers raised up Jesus whom you murdered by hanging on a tree. Him God has exalted to His right hand to be Prince and Savior, to give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins. And we are His witnesses to these things, and so also is the Holy Spirit whom God has given to those who obey Him. When they heard this, they were furious and plotted to kill them. Then one in the council stood up,...

Belonging to Gedaliah who is over the House

This find is an amazing confirmation of the scriptural account of Nebuchadnezzar's invasion we read about in 2Kings 25 22-24 Then he made Gedaliah the son of Ahikam, the son of Shaphan, governor over the people who remained in the land of Judah, whom Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon had left. Now when all the captains of the armies, they and their men, heard that the king of Babylon had made Gedaliah governor, they came to Gedaliah at Mizpah. Another clay seal housed in the British Museum is...

Jesus Christ The Messiah

The first evidence for the life of Jesus, mentioned outside of the Bible, comes from a Jewish historian by the name of Josephus. Josephus was born in 37 A.D., just a few years after the crucifixion of the Lord Jesus Christ. He was the son of a priest named Matthias and at the age of 19 he became a Pharisee in Jerusalem. Later in his life he was appointed a commander in Galilee during the Jewish revolt against Rome. After surrendering to the Romans, he was taken before the Roman Commander...

How To Give Glory To

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men (After curing ten lepers of their disease, one of them came back to thank Jesus) Jesus answered and said, Were there not ten cleansed But where are the nine Were there not any found who returned to give glory to God except this foreigner And He said to him, Arise, go your way.

The Modern Day Equivalent To Abortionists

The Oriental Institute of Chicago, during excavations near Samaria, found the ruins of a temple built to Ashertoreth that stood during the reign of king Ahab. Near the site were found jars that contained the remains of infants who had been sacrificed in this horrible temple.

A seal was also...

The Bible records how Hoshea came to power in 2Kings 15 29 In the days of Pekah king of Israel, Tiglath-P-ileser king of Assyria came and took Ijon, Abel Beth Maachah, Janoah, Kedesh, Hazor, Gilead, and Galilee, all the land of Naphtali and he carried them captive to Assyria.

God And The House Of David

In 1868, a stone was uncovered in the biblical city of Dibon, on which was recorded victories over the Israelites by Mesha, king of Moab. MESHA STONE Battles between Israel and this same Mesha are also recorded in the Bible. It is uncertain whether the victories on the stone were recorded before or after the kings of Israel and Judah fought against king Mesha, around 850 B.C., as recorded in 2 Kings 3 4-26, in which Israel, with God's help, was victorious. The following is a translation of the...

The Miracles Of Jesus

An early mention of the miracles of Christ comes from Julian the Apostate (Roman Emperor from 361-363 A.D.) who was an enemy of Christianity, he wrote Jesus . . . has now been honored for about three hundred years having done nothing throughout his lifetime that was worthy of fame, unless anyone thinks it a very great work to heal the lame and the blind and to cast out demons in the towns of Bethsaida and Bethany. This statement shows that it was commonly accepted that Jesus performed miracles...

He is recorded in Jeremiah 36 10-12 Then Baruch read from the book the words of Jeremiah in the house of the LORD, in the chamber of Gemariah the son of Shaphan the scribe, in the upper court at the entry of the New Gate of the Lord's house, in the hearing of all the people.

Quirinius And The Census

For many years, critics of those who believe the Bible to be 100 accurate, used a passage found in the Bible to point out an apparent historical error. Luke 2 1-2 states And it came to pass in those days that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. This census first took place while Quirinius was governing Syria. Since the Bible states that Jesus was born before the death of Herod the Great, who died in the spring of 4 B.C., critics claimed that the Bible...

The Book Of Daniel

Joshua And The Promised Land

After wandering in the wilderness for forty years, Moses handed over the leadership of the Hebrew nation to Joshua, who brings the children of Israel into the promised land of Canaan. According to the Bible, after entering Canaan, Joshua had to go to war with the peoples who occupied the land. There is an amazing piece of evidence to support this.

King David

Picture King Babylon

A stone erected to pay tribute to a Syrian king, and a record of his victories over Israel, was uncovered during excavations in the biblical city of Dan during 1993. The stone mentions the name House of David. According to the Bible, the city of Dan was the northern most city of Israel and was named after Dan, the father of one of Israel's twelve tribes.

King Belshazzar And Darius The Mede

In Daniel chapter 5, a Babylonian king by the name of Belshazzar mocks God by throwing a party with articles taken from the Jewish temple. As a result, God passes judgement on Belshazzar by taking away his kingdom and dividing it between the Medes and Persians. Bible critics love to use this story to point out apparent historical errors in the text, trying to disprove the accuracy of the Bible. The first thing they say is that the last king to rule the empire of Babylon before being captured by...

The Pool Of Siloam

In the Gospel of John it is recorded that Jesus healed a man who had been blind from birth at the pool of Siloam. The pool of Siloam was fed by water from an underground spring which flowed through a tunnel originally constructed by King Hezekiah, who ruled from 716-687 B.C., as recorded in IIKings 20 20 Now the rest of the acts of Hezekiah all his might, and how he made a pool and a tunnel and brought water into the city are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah...

And he went...

Moses And Pharaoh

The Photo Dead Body Pharaoh

In Cecil B Demille's classic The Ten Commandments staring Charlton Heston, Yul Brynner plays the role of Pharaoh Ramesses in one of the all time great Bible movies about Moses. But according to the Bible, Ramesses could not have been the Pharaoh of the Exodus. The reason many movies about Moses portray the Pharaoh as Ramesses is because of the Bible passage found in Exodus 1 8-11 which states Now there arose a new king over Egypt, who did not know Joseph. And he said to his people, Look, the...

Jezebel Seal

Jezebel Seal

Another event which occurred at the time of Jezebel was when the prophet Elijah challenged the 450 prophets of Baal whom she had appointed. Elijah told the people If the Lord is God follow him but if Baal is God, follow him.

Then Elijah prayed to God that the people would turn their hearts back to the Lord. God heard...
