All your life, dear reader, you have been seeking proof that the bible is true. Now you can put all those Satanic doubts behind you. You must read Archaeological Find Confirms the New Testament at the website of Answers in Genesis (AIG). It was written by Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo), the Australian entrepreneur who has become the ayatollah of Appalachia. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us:
The Bible is written as literal history. The people, places, and events in Scripture aren’t just made-up stories to teach theological truths — they really happened. Now, if the Bible is indeed true history, we’d expect archaeology to confirm the details of events recorded in Scripture. And that’s exactly what we see over and over again.
[*Begin Drool Mode*] Ooooooooooooh! [*End Drool Mode*] Over and over again! And now ol’ Hambo has even more proof. He says:
Recent excavations [Hambo links to this item in the Christian Post: First Century Synagogue Confirms New Testament Accounts of Jesus Christ] in the lower Galilee area of Israel have unearthed a synagogue. Synagogues have long been used, and are still used today, as Jewish assembly places for worship and religious instruction.
[*Begin Drool Mode*] Ooooooooooooh! [*End Drool Mode*] They found a synagogue in Israel! Let’s read on:
Jesus and later the apostles often taught in synagogues. Including this new find, only eight have been discovered in Israel dating from the Second Temple era (the time between the return from Babylonian exile under Cyrus, the Persian ruler, in 530 BC and the destruction of the second temple by the Romans in AD 70).
Hold on just a second. This may be the devil talking through us, but just because they found a synagogue, and Jesus is said to have taught in such places, we still need Hambo to connect the dots a bit more than he has so far. But we have faith in Hambo. He continues:
This new synagogue find “is the first synagogue discovered in the rural part of the Galilee and it confirms historical information we have about the New Testament, which says that Jesus preached at synagogues in Galilean villages.”
Hambo doesn’t explain the quote marks in that sentence, but he’s quoting the Christian Post. Here’s more:
The Gospels mention Jesus preaching and teaching in rural synagogues in small towns and villages along the Sea of Galilee [scripture reference], but such a synagogue had never been observed. This new find confirms that the New Testament writers accurately described the area.
Gasp! It’s true, it’s really true — there were rural synagogues in Israel! This is a game-changer! And now we come to the end:
The events in the Gospels and throughout the other historical portions of the Bible really happened. We can trust the details given to us in Scripture.
Your Curmudgeon is too overwhelmed to say anything. We’re hoping that you, dear reader, might add your thoughts about this historic discovery.
