One would think with all the evidence that the Bible is the Word of God critics would give it a break but they won’t. They keep hammering away at it trying to destroy its credibility. But facts are stubborn things and archeology has again and again supported the Bible and refuted its critics. Today’s devotional is a good example. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
Luke 24:25 (ESV)
And he said to them, “O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken!
“Critics of Scripture…doubted the existence of the Hittites, a people the Bible refers to some 40 times. Archaeologist Hugh Winckler excavated the Hittite capital of Boghaz-Koi and recovered thousands of Hittite texts, as well as the famous Hittite code.” [John F. MacArthur, Jr., Why Believe the Bible? (Grand Rapids: Baker Book House, 1980), p. 34]
“The historical foundations of early Israelite tradition are becoming more and more solidly established by the progress of archaeological discovery.” [William Foxwell Albright, From the Stone Age to Christianity, (Garden City, NY: Doubleday Anchor Books, 1957), p. 13]
