Archaeology Supports the Bible

Was the Bible Made Up?

This is Ken Ham, the president of the ministry behind the Answers Bible Curriculum.


Some people claim that the Bible was just made up by people who lived long after the events in the Bible were supposed to have happened. But did you know the Bible’s been confirmed by archaeology? Here are just three examples:

  • A slab was discovered which read "the House of David," confirming King David existed.
  • A stone was found bearing the name "Pilate," the Roman governor who sentenced Jesus to death. It proved Pilate wasn’t just made up, like many thought.
  • Another slab mentions Omri, king of Israel, and Yahweh, the personal name of the God of the Bible.

The Bible wasn’t made up. Its ultimate author is God, who does not lie, so we can trust what we read in God’s Word.
