Ancient Bible Archaeological Treasures

I don't know about you all, but I love archaeological discoveries. They get me excited because they help us peep into the past--sometimes the very far off and long-ago past. You have to know that I just love history--all aspect of history--so this really fascinates me. I remember spending hours in the British Museum in London because it was so marvelous. I wish we had its like here in California, but we do not.

I came across this article, Top Ten Archaeological Discoveries of the Twentieth Century Relating to the Biblical World, written by Keith N. Schoville who is the Professor Emeritus of Hebrew and Semitic Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. It was fascinating. There are things you expect to see there, the Dead Sea Scrolls, for example, but I did not know anything about a good number of these discoveries and it is worth the read.

I love it when the discoveries of man bring to life the glories and truths of God. I hope you enjoy the article!
