Archaeology and the Bible

Critical scholars of the nineteenth century focused upon supposed ‘contradictions’ and ‘errors’ of fact to be found in the Bible. ¬†During the fist half of the twentieth century, archaeological discoveries supported the presentation of fact found in many places of the Bible that previously had been challenged. ¬†At the end of World War II, scholars held the Bible to be much more trustworthy than they had believed at the beginning of the century.
