Another amazing archaeological discovery has been made in Israel helping to confirm the historicity of the Bible. There have been many similar discoveries made in recent years, everything from seals belonging to Isaiah, jailors of Jeremiah, the Pontius Pilate ring, and a clay impression made for Jezebel. The newest addition to this list was found in excavations in the Western Wall area of Jerusalem. It is amazing that such discoveries are still being made in such a highly trafficked area but has apparently been overlooked until now. The Governor’s Seal Ancient documents were formalized by an impression made by a… Read More »

Pontius Pilate was the Roman prefect of Judea at the time of Christ’s trial and execution. This fact alone has guaranteed Pilate’s infamy throughout all time. There are few historical artifacts related to Pilate including a ring which might have belonged to him, and the so-called Pontius Pilate Stone which bears an inscription including his name. There has been little uncovered archaeologically related to this man of such importance. The recent discovery of a road in Jerusalem made by him comes as a welcome addition to discoveries related to this historical figure. The Jerusalem Street Archaeologists have identified a street… Read More »

An agnostic is somebody who states he “does not know” about the existence of God.  Being an agnostic means you accept the possibility that there might be a God but remain unconvinced of his existence. The term was originally proposed by Thomas Huxley in 1869 who said, It simply means that a man shall not say he knows or believes that which he has no scientific grounds for professing to know or believe. The basic idea of Huxley’s objection is that the existence of God is unknowable – it is not possible to say without a doubt whether God either… Read More »

Probably no assertion of Christianity is as offensive to more people than the assertion that Christ is the only way to God. It is an integral part of Christianity because it is so clearly stated in Scripture. It is difficult to be a Christian without also believing in the absolute uniqueness of Christianity to bridge the gap between God and man. Such a reality is explicitly detailed in Scripture, so if Christians believe in the truth of Scripture, they also believe in the truth of this exclusivity claim; there is no other way to God. Christ was very clear when… Read More »
