Has archaeology proven the Bible? If so, how?
Yes, from the names of ancient kings and cities to the locations of battles and settlements, time and again the Bible has been supported by archaeological finds. For example, it was claimed that King David of the Old Testament was just a legend until archaeologists found tablets from a neighboring kingdom mentioning David, King of Judah. And the Cylinder of Cyrus, unearthed in 1879, gave evidence of Cyrus’ kingship and his rule. Furthermore, the Dead Sea Scrolls (found in a cave in 1946) are evidence of the truths of the Bible. Archeological finds are one of the great proofs of the Bible.
