Are you ready to listen to some of the best Christian thinkers in the world talk about today’s biggest issues? Every week, MyFaithRadio puts out a new episode of the Jeremiah Johnston Show and you can tune in Saturdays at 11 AM (CT) to hear about Biblical history, apologetics, Christian values in our day-to-day lives, and much more! Recently, Jeremiah has hosted a string of guests whose names you might recognize:
Eli Shukron, a renowned Israeli archaeologist who discovered the Pool of Siloam. Check out the episode here!
Dr. Craig Evans, a New Testament scholar who has lectured at some of the most prestigious universities in the world. Check out the episode here!
And author Jerry Jenkins, who wrote the Left Behind novels with Tim LaHaye and worked with Billy Graham in the writing and compiling of his memoirs. Check out the episode here!
These episodes are a great way to learn and get inspired! But how is Biblical archaeology tied to our faith in this day and age? Well, on the show, Dr. Evans put it like this:
“To deny the existence of Jesus, not only do you deny literature – Christian, Jewish, Greek, and Roman – but you have to ignore archaeology as well. If the writers of the gospels didn’t know what they were talking about, how did they get so much right?”
So Biblical archaeology proves that what we believe is grounded in historical facts. Many skeptics today try to claim that there is no real evidence that Jesus was who he claimed to be and that the New Testament writers made up their accounts to fit their beliefs. But as Dr. Evans points out, there are other sources that confirm, not only the historical fact of Jesus having lived but the accuracy of the contextual facts mentioned in the Gospels. So when people come to us and ask, “Why are you a Christian?” Biblical archaeology makes it easy for us to respond. “Because I know the Bible is true, and history proves it.”
During the course of each of these interviews, Jeremiah Johnston asked his guests about their upcoming travels to Israel.
