Most people look at the Bible as a book that contains many interesting stories and theological teaching. While this is true, the Bible is so much more—it’s a history book that reveals the major events of history that are foundational to the Bible’s important messages.
Nothing in ancient history (when properly understood) can possibly conflict with biblical history. As archaeologists continue to make exciting new discoveries, we have nothing to worry about. God’s eyewitness record is 100% true and reliable, the only sure starting point for studying the timeline of human history.
The Bible provides us with a timescale for history. Although not measured by means of atomic clocks, the several dates and facts underlay a proper understanding of the Bible.
Josephus is an eminently important and helpful source for gathering details about New Testament times, but Christians should be careful not to read him as an apologist for Christianity or to rely upon him too heavily. Nor should they be ignorant of his bias in favor of Judaism.
The Bible is inerrant, yet some have tried to state that the Bible erroneously records 20 commandments.
Have you ever wondered how the early history of Egypt and other ancient nations fits within biblical history?
One of the most-quoted resources about the world during Bible times is the first-century historian Josephus. But who was this man?
A recently reported study by meteorologist Carl Drews has suggested a way in which the waters of the Red Sea could have parted “naturally,” enabling the children of Israel, led by Moses, to cross as pharaoh’s army pursued (Exodus 14). Such an explanation might leave God with credit for the timing of the event, but little else.
The history of the Jews—and, more broadly, the Hebrews—is wrapped up in the history of the Bible. For that reason alone, modern studies of those identifying as Jews often have interesting implications for biblical history.
Those familiar with the message of the Creation Museum know that it will feature a ‘walk through history’ based on the ‘7 C’s of History.’
With a biblical framework in place, we can teach our children how the Bible explains the world around us.
Why should we trust what the Bible says about itself?
The Ussher timeline chart by Paul Hansen that appeared in Creation magazine in September 2005 is available for download.
Most people look at the Bible as a book that contains many interesting stories and theological teaching. While this is true, the Bible is so much more!
The origin of clothes is only a mystery if one rejects the written record of God’s Word.
Assyrian chronology is not as simple as Thiele would have us believe, and there is no reason to bend the Bible to fit the current reconstructions of Assyrian chronology.
Chronologists have differing views as to the length of the sojourn of the Jews. I think it would not be a problem for anybody if they just collect all the relevant verses.
In many church settings, Bible stories are taught as just that—stories, nice accounts that, although they may have a moral message, have no real bearing on the world around us.
Ancient documents about the days of Peleg are consistent with the total accuracy of the Bible’s chronology.
The Sumerian King List records the lengths of reigns of the kings of Sumer. The initial section deals with kings before the Flood and is significantly different from the rest.
There are a number of points where modern Biblical chronologies disagree with each other.
The early chapters of Genesis are factual history, and when compared with other writings the Bible has dramatically superior records of creation, the Fall, the Flood, and the Tower of Babel.
There is an interesting prophecy in 2 Peter 3 concerning the last days of this earth’s history, and it very much relates to the whole creation/evolution issue!
Answers in Genesis is an apologetics ministry, dedicated to helping Christians defend their faith and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ effectively. We focus on providing answers to questions about the Bible—particularly the book of Genesis—regarding key issues such as creation, evolution, science, and the age of the earth.
