External proof for Biblical content is – in my opinion – not necessary to accept the Bible as the inspired word of God. The internal proof is sufficient for anyone who studies the scriptures objectively to come to the conclusion that the Bible is what it claims to be – God’s inspired written word. The book He uses to communicate His thoughts – to a very limited degree – to man. See Ivan Panin and Scripture Numerics, or Dr. Greenleaf – An Examination of the Testimony of the Four Evangelists by the Rules of Evidence Administered in the Courts of Justice among many many others.
I’ve never seen any external “proof” that contradicts Biblical content, despite the myriad of claims that purport to do just that: prove the Bible is a “collection of myths,” “full of contradictions,” nothing but stories made up by a bunch of desert goat and sheep herders, blah, blah, blah.
The external evidence supportive of even the most unbelievable accounts recorded in the Bible is substantial, in fact, overwhelming.
The problem is not the lack of external evidence verifying Biblical content. The problem is we rarely are shown the supporting evidence. There are many who have a vested interest in keeping the masses believing the lies being told concerning the Bible. Why? Because if the Bible is true, then there is a Creator God. If there is a Creator, then evolution is a lie. If evolution is a lie, can you imagine the repercussions for all that passes for “science” and all that grant money given to evolutionists to promote their “theory” of evolution? If the Bible can be believed, then what about it’s condemnation of homosexuality? Of adultery? Of usury?
If the Bible is true then we are accountable to God.
No, those who control our media don’t want us to go into those topics with objectivity. They’ve already indicated to the rest of us what we should think on these and many other politically correct topics, so they aren’t about to reveal to us the many, many proofs that point to the fact that the Bible can be believed, and that there is in fact a Creator. We’re being herded like cattle into group think.
Here is, for those of you who haven’t yet seen it, a documentary that delves into the Biblical account of the Israelites’ exodus out of Egypt as recorded in the Bible. Notice I didn’t say the Jewish exodus, but the exodus of the Tribes of Israel. These weren’t Jews, they were Israelites. Despite what you have been led to believe, there is a difference. A big difference, as I have said before in other missives, Moses was not Jew, neither was Abraham, Isaac or Jacob. But, that is another topic for another missive.
I found The Exodus Decoded fascinating.
The Exodus Decoded
From the description:
Complex yet utterly compelling, The Exodus Decoded is presented by movie director James Cameron (Titanic) but is the passion of Jewish-Canadian filmmaker Simcha Jacobovici. Jacobovici has extensively researched evidence that the Biblical account of the Exodus was real, and concludes that it actually took place in 1500 BCE (during the reign of pharaoh Ahmos I), historically known as the Hyksos Expulsion. The Hyksos people were a Semitic race about whom little is known. But their departure from Egypt, following a long enslavement, along with early writings and other physical evidence, make a strong case that they are the Hebrews of lore.
