Bible archeology and some fascinating finds

  • Jun 10, 2011

Did Sodom and Gomorrah really happen? Where did Melchisedek live? Where was Abraham when he was spared from sacrificing his son? And how many histories are there buried under Temple Mount?

There are stories buried all over the worlds in the stones of archeology, but with so many religions centered on the Holy Land there are bound to be lots and lots of stories there.  While there might not be evidence (yet) for every Bible story I've read, I was amazed to find out how much evidence there is for some.

I particularly enjoyed the chapters on the Cities of the Plains, and seeing that curious Biblical tidbit about tarpits near Sodom and Gomorrah. Suddenly it all makes sense, and I like things to make sense.

This book's not a quick read, but it's a fascinating one and highly recommended.

About this book

Wiki

Were Sodom and Gomorrah real cities, and were they really destroyed in catastrophic firestorms? Can we respond to the historians who have long claimed that King David was only a mythical figure? Is there archaeological evidence for Jesus’ historical existence here on earth?

In recent excavation, archaeologists have unearthed both surprising and substantial answers to these questions and others. Pottery shards, stone inscriptions, ancient scrolls, and other fascinating artifacts have shed new light on the people and events of the Bible—bringing them from the realm of mystery to the world of fact.

Discover what new archaeological finds have to tell us about Israel’s journey to the promised land, the fall of Jericho’s walks, the ark of the covenant, the kings and prophets of Israel, the Assyrian and Babylonian invasions, the Dead Sea Scrolls, the time and people of Jesus, and more. Includes testimonies and interviews from leading archaeologists and exciting pictures featuring the latest finds made in the lands of the Bible.

The Stones Cry Out will give you a new appreciation for both the world and the Word of the Bible!
