Archaeology and the Bible: Their Sometimes Contentious Relationship (7-3-21)
Archaeology has always been a fascinating discipline. However, its interaction with the Bible has not always been easy. Early excavators sought to use archaeology to prove the accuracy of the Bible. More recent approaches have sought to develop archaeology apart from the Bible and to then look to see where there might be correlations. The consequence has been that sometimes archaeology supports historical claims of the Bible, but at other times the results of archaeology contradict the Bible. In all of this, archaeology cannot prove (or disprove) the theological claims of the biblical text.
