The Word of God, Session 5

Today we continue looking at the issue of inspiration by taking a look at the Bible's historical accuracy and the lives that have been transformed by it.

Teaching Notes
6. History
And yet another proof of the inspiration of the Bible is history, especially in the realm of archeology. It has been said that with every turn of the archeologist's spade, another skeptic is put to silence. Halley's Bible Handbook lists 112 examples and Unger's Bible Handbook lists 96.

In Genesis 2:8-14 it says that the Garden of Eden was in the lower Mesopotamian Valley and it is now referred to by even the evolutionists as the birthplace of human life or the Cradle of Civilization. In Genesis 11:1-9 it mentions the Tower of Babel and dozens of ziggurats have been found in Mesopotamia. The Bible states that the birthplace of Abraham was in Ur of the Chaldees (Genesis 11:27-31). For many years, people doubted if it ever existed until C.L. Wooley came along in 1922 and found it. It is now one of the best known ancient sites in the world that dates back to around 2000 B.C.

7. Transformed Lives
The final proof (at least for this paper) in the proof of the inspiration of the Bible is the lives that it has transformed. There is not enough room in this paper or any other for that matter, to list the lives that have been "elevated to new levels of peace and joy by turning their lives over to Christ."

The Bible says in Psa 119:9, Heb 4:12.

There is no doubt that the Bible has changed the lives of many. The Apostle Paul said of himself in 1Tim 1:12-15.
