It Is Fact, Not Fiction

The Amazing Historical Accuracy of the Bible – Introduction

God has given humanity a limited number of books that are divinely inspired. These written works are now contained in one Book; the Bible. Since the Bible is the Word of God, it is the final authority for all matters of belief and practice.

We will now examine the accuracy of the contents of these books. Is the Bible historically accurate, or does it contain errors of fact? How does the Bible match up with known secular history? What role does the science of archaeology play in establishing the Scripture’s reliability? Does archaeology prove the Bible? Have archaeological discoveries provided any helpful information about the events recorded in Scripture? What do the facts say?

The evidence will lead us to conclude that the Bible matches up well with known historical facts. It will be shown that the findings from archaeology support the accuracy of Scripture, not only in its general statements, but also its accuracy in minor and insignificant details. In other words, the writers of Scripture were minutely accurate in everything they recorded. Thus, we are dealing with actual events, not mythology. This gives us every reason to believe that its message is true in all that it says.

The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture.
