Is It Time to Throw Away Your Bible? The Exodus from Egypt 6/30/2014 - by ABR Staff

For decades, scholars have continually argued that "there is no evidence for the Exodus" in Egypt. Aside from this being an argument from silence, archaeological research in Egypt has revealed numerous evidences consistent with the biblical account from the time of Jacob, Joseph and Moses. Dr. Wood outlines some of the work being done in Egypt and how the skeptical arguments do not hold up to scrutiny.

Biblical Archaeology in 2010: Going Strong Still! 6/10/2010 - by Brian Janeway PhD (c)

ASOR's annual meetings are its focal event of the year. Approximately 750 scholars, students, and interested members of the public come together for three intensive days of academic lectures, poster presentations, business meetings, evening receptions, and general conversation. This past year they were held in New Orleans, Louisiana. Some of the sessions are directly related to the Bible; for example two sessions on the exciting new finds at Khirbet Qeiyafa, which are associated with the reign of King David...

Is Biblical Archaeology a 'Farce'? 11/22/2009 - by Rick Lanser MDiv

As ABR approaches it, so-called "biblical" archaeology is simply applying valid archaeological principles to the archaeology of the lands discussed by the biblical writers, without the anti-Bible preconceptional bias that taints the research of so many archaeologists.

Biblical Archaeology in 2009: Still Going Strong 6/6/2009 - by Brian Janeway PhD (c)

This review of biblical papers delivered at the 2008 ASOR meetings clearly shows that biblical archaeology is anything but dead, even if scholars are uncomfortable with the term itself. Indeed, it illustrates the central role that the Bible continues to play in the history and archaeology of the region; a source unmatched and unrivaled in its rich detail and description of life in antiquity...

Does Biblical Archaeology Exist? 4/18/2007 - by Brian Janeway PhD (c)

It will come as news to Bible and Spade readers that, in fact, there is no Biblical Archaeology. From Ronald Hendel’s perspective, Biblical Archaeology and Santa Claus exist only in the imaginary world of the infantile or the untutored...

Relearning Old Lessons: Archaeologists Fail to Use Sound Reasoning 8/23/2006 - by Brian Janeway PhD (c)

This story is one that has been repeated time and again throughout more than a century of excavations in the Holy Land. It involves a tendency to make claims based upon incomplete evidence and fails to account for the principle that absence of evidence does not equal evidence of absence...
