Young Earth Creationist Ken Ham has said the recent discoveries of desecration done to the shrines of Baal in Israel allude to specific passages of the Bible and prove the truthfulness of Scripture.
Ham, who is president of the Ark Encounter and the Creation Museum in Kentucky, wrote in a blog post for Answers in Genesis on Thursday that excavation discoveries of an ancient city gate and shrine that the biblical King Hezekiah wanted destroyed somewhere in the eighth century B.C. point directly to 2 Kings in the Bible.
The discoveries in question were made at the site of Tel Lachish, where a city gate which once contained a sacred shrine with two altars also came with a ceremonial toilet made for desecration purposes. more >>
Archaeologists conducting research at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem's Old City have said that for the first time ever they have uncovered the original limestone bed where Jesus Christ is believed to have been buried before His resurrection.
"I'm absolutely amazed. My knees are shaking a little bit because I wasn't expecting this," said Fredrik Hiebert of National Geographic.
"We can't say 100 percent, but it appears to be visible proof that the location of the tomb has not shifted through time, something that scientists and historians have wondered for decades." more >>
Scientists have reportedly uncovered for the first time since 1555 an ancient slab inside a chamber in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, which is believed to have once held Jesus' body.
The National Geographic reported that the slab in question had been covered by marble cladding since at least the mid 16th century.
"The marble covering of the tomb has been pulled back, and we were surprised by the amount of fill material beneath it," said archaeologist Fredrik Hiebert, a partner in the restoration project at Jesus' tomb. "It will be a long scientific analysis, but we will finally be able to see the original rock surface on which, according to tradition, the body of Christ was laid." more >>
Once again archaeology confirms biblical history. I'll explain the latest find — just bring along your sense of humor.
The late Chuck Colson was known for many things: his role in the Watergate scandal, his subsequent conversion to Christ; his work with prisoners around the world, and his efforts in promoting a Christian worldview.
But to his closest associates, Chuck was also known for his sense of humor. He loved practical jokes, and as odd as this sounds, jokes about bathroom mishaps — the kind of potty humor made famous by humorist Dave Barry. more >>
Former Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson has slammed the United Nations and UNESCO for passing a resolution last week that denies the Christian and Jewish connection to the Temple Mount and Western Wall in Jerusalem.
"Jews and Christians around the world should be morally outraged by UNESCO's theft, robbing them of their history and denying their connection to the Temple Mount and the Western Wall," Carson wrote in an op-ed published by the Independent Journal Review on Monday.
"UNESCO's adaptation of this virulently anti-Semitic and anti-Israel resolution is an outright abomination," he added. more >>
