    Critics Of Bible Silenced Once Again: Archaeological Discoveries Prove Old Testament To Be Accurate



    [​IMG]

    Entire article here.

    For many years, the critics of the Old Testament continued to argue that Moses invented the stories found in Genesis. The critics contended that the ancient people of the Old Testament times were too primitive to record documents with precise details.


    In doing so, these critics basically claimed that there was no verification that the people and cities mentioned in the oldest of Biblical accounts ever really existed.

    The discovery of the Ebla archive in northern Syria in the 1970′s confirmed that the Biblical records concerning the Patriarchs are spot on. It was during the excavations in northern Syria that the excavating found a large library inside a royal archive room. This library had tablets dating from 2400 -2300 BC.
    The excavating team discovered almost 15,000 ancient tablets and fragments which when joined together accounted for about 2,500 tablets. Amazingly, these tablets confirmed that personal and location titles in the Biblical Patriarchal accounts are authentic. These tablets are known as the Ebla Tablets.

    For a long period of time, the critics of the Old Testament used to argue that the name ‘Canaan’ was used wrongly in the early chapters of the Bible. They claimed the name Canaan was never used at that specific time in history. They further accused that the name was inserted in the Old Testament afterwards, while the earliest books of The Holy Bible were not written in the times that are described.

    However, with the discovery of the tablets from the northern Syria, the word the word “Canaan” does appear, contrary to the claims of the critics. The tablets proved that the term was actually used in ancient Syria during the time in which the Old Testament was written.

    Additionally, the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah were also thought to be pure fiction by Bible critics. These cities are also identified in the Ebla tablets, in addition to the city of Haran. Haran is described in Genesis as the city of Abram’s father, Terah. Previous to this discovery, ‘scholars’ suspected the actual presence of the ancient city.

    Curiously, Ka nana was mentioned in Egypt though and although Egypt is mentioned in the OT 700 times (so much that the entire story would fall apart without it), Israel is mentioned, speculatively, just once in all of the Egyptian writings, so we go to Syria for verification? hummmm

    LOL, are you saying that Egypt was "defeated" by Israel? Wow....huge leap from fiction to unsubstantiated fact. The one time they possibly mentioned Israel, as "I.si.ri.ar" , on the Merneptah Stele, it was recording how they had been totally annihilated.....guess we can't believe all the victories people write about either...

    Correct, Israel is mentioned only once as you say, in the Merneptah Stela (Stele). And that extra-biblical proof cannot be considered to clarify anything beyond that fact, based on translation issues.

    But why would going to Syria for verification be problematic, I'm confused?

    Ancient Syria and the Levant is only a stones throw from Egypt, metaphorically speaking. We know Syria's Hebrew name is Aram, and that Syria is derived from Assyria; also, Syria-Damascus, is mentioned 300 times in the Bible.
