This is Ken Ham, on a mission to strengthen the global church with God’s Word.


Archaeological discoveries from Bible times can help us as we study God’s Word today. But we must remember that His Word stands as an authority over them. Here are two uses for ancient artifacts and texts.

One, they can provide unknown details. Archaeology gives valuable information about the culture, religions, and more of Israel and the surrounding lands. This can enhance our understanding of the biblical text. We don’t need this information because the Scripture is clear, but it can enhance a passage.

Second, for helping us defend the Bible’s historicity. Many archaeological discoveries have confirmed what we read in the Bible. We can use these to defend its truth and authority.
