Archaeology cannot prove Christianity or the Bible – but, it can give us a very high degree of certainty that the Biblical record is an accurate account of what actually happened. The cornerstone truth of Christian faith is the resurrection of Christ, so in Christianity faith and history are intimately connected (see 1 Cor. 15). Archaeology is the study of the physical and material remains of past human cultures. As a record of the past, the Bible can and, has stood up to intense scrutiny and skepticism by those who question its reliability. No other book in the ancient world or religious text can even come close to the Bible in matters of historical integrity, manuscript, and archaeological evidence.—Ted Wright (from, Biblical Archaeology with Professor Ted Wright)
