Biblical Archaeology

Piecing Together the Biblical Past

Ted W Wright

Can we trust the stories recorded in the Bible as true, and historically accurate? Is there archaeological evidence for the Exodus? Did King David actually exist? What is the relationship between archaeological evidence and Christian faith? In this essay, Ted Wright, Executive Director of Epic Archaeology, outlines some of the key issues, ideas, and challenges of biblical archaeology. Included is an overview of archeology’s most important discoveries related to the biblical history and biblical text, as well as the most recent discoveries currently being studied. As biblical discoveries often come as media announcements with little context or explanation, this is an invaluable overview and guide to the field of biblical archaeology.
