The Bible as History (2019 Edition)

The New Encyclopedia Britannica calls the Bible "the most influential collection of books in human history"

Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the United States, called the Bible "the best gift God has ever given to man ... but for it we could not know right from wrong".

However,during the 18th and 19th centuries, certain academically minded Christians began to question the Bible's historical accuracy. These scholars became known as "higher critics" and claimed much of the Bible was composed of legend and myth.

Even in the 21st Century, higher criticism is still taught in the seminaries of Christendom. It is far from unusual to hear prominent clergymen publicly disavow large sections of the Bible. One Anglican minister was recently quoted in an Australian newspaper as saying "... the Bible is just wrong! The history is wrong. The details are garbled".

Is this true?

How historically accurate is the Bible?

Can we base our faith and confidence on its historical reliability?

The TWO DVD ROM Collection: "The Bible as History (2019)" provides exhaustive evidence from reliable historical and archaeological sources that the Bible is completely accurate and totally reliable in every detail and in every statement that it makes.


The Double DVD ROM set presents its collections in SIX sections and includes the following:

Temple relief at Karnak, Egypt describing Pharaoh Shishaks invasion of Judea
"The Moabite Stone" in the Louvre Museum, Paris although a Pagan relic, features the Divine name repeatedly in reference to the Israelites, showing it was in common usuage in antiquity. 
The Priests at the temple in Jerusalem show Alexander the biblical prophesies predicting his rise to power. (Dan 8: 5 - 8, 21)
Tiberius Caesar : the Gospel writer Luke's remarkably detailed time line (Luke 3: 1 - 3)  
matched Tiberius 15th year with the start of Jesus ministry. All the Roman officials mentioned in the account are confirmed by secular historians.

The Arch of Titus in Rome, graphically illustrates the power of fulfilled Bible prophecy. Roman soldiers loot the temple in Jerusalem, a destruction vividly predicted by Jesus Christ 37 years previous. (Matt 24, Mark 13, Luke 21)
People and Cultures of the Bible
The Bible primarily focuses on the history of and God's dealings with the nation of Israel.

However, many other peoples and cultures which came into contact with the Israelites are of considerable interest to Bible students.

Sometimes the scriptures provide considerable details about the customs and behaviors of certain nations
(eg Canaan, Egypt, Babylon). Generally however, the details are scant, with only passing reference being made to the foreign cultures and lifestyles of the peoples that surrounded Israel.

The purpose of the DVD ROM  : "People and Cultures of the Bible" is to provide exhaustive background reference material from respected scholarly sources, which give insight into the surrounding nations that so often had such a dramatic impact on God's chosen people.

The Canaanites : "Did a civilization of such abominable filth and brutality have any right to exist? Archaeologists who dig in the ruins of Canaanite cities wonder why God did not destroy them sooner than he did"
(Henry H Halley :  Halleys Bible Handbook
p161) 
The Egyptians : Egypt and its inhabitants are referred to over 700 times in the Bible. They had a profound influence on the Israelites.
The Philistines : Occupying the coastal plain of Palestine, during a major part of the Hebrew Scripture period, the Philistines were one of the fiercest and most aggressive of Israel's enemies.
The Samaritans : were foreigners who were relocated by the Assyrians to the conquered northern ten tribe kingdom.They were despised by the Jews because of their "fusion religion", which mixed the writings of Moses with paganism and spiritism.

Above : a modern day Samaritan priest displays an ancient copy of the Samaritan
Pentateuch (the first 5 books of the Bible). 
Great Historical Characters of the New Testament
A faith building and confidence producing feature of the Bible record is its historical accuracy.

Nowhere is this more apparent than in the Gospels and the other writings contained in the Christian
Greek scriptures or the so called "New Testament".

This should not surprise us as "all scripture is inspired of God and is beneficial for teaching, for reproving, for setting things straight, for disciplining in righteousness" (2 Tim 3:16).

With such an accurate divine author, we can surely read the scriptures with confidence, knowing that every statement made is factual and completely reliable.

But what adds even more strength to our faith, is when we find outside sources, (many of whom 
bitterly opposed Christianity at the time the Christian Greek Scriptures were written), actually confirming the accuracy of the historical statements made in those sacred books!


The purpose of the DVD ROM  : "Great Historical Characters of the New Testament" is to provide exhaustive background reference material from respected scholarly sources, providing dramatic evidence that whenever a person, place or event is recorded in sacred scripture, every factual statement used by the inspired writer is 100% accurate.

The historicity of Jesus Christ is attested to by over 20 secular historians and writers who wrote in first three centuries of the                                     common era.
"Now in those days a decree went forth from Caesar Augustus for all the inhabited earth to be registered" (Luke 2:1)
Herod I or Herod the Great (74 BCE, - 4 BCE) is described by one historian as "a madman who murdered his own family and a great many rabbis".  This fits in well with the Bibles description of the psychotic ruler who lived at the  time of Jesus birth.
Paul at the Areopagus (Athens)  All the places and geographical locations Paul visited during his missionary journeys are accurately described the New Testament and are confirmed by 1st century historians such                as Tacitus and Suetonius.
Yosef Bar Kayafa, better known as Caiaphas (Greek Καϊάφας)  was the Roman-appointed Jewish high priest who is said by Josephus to have made a huge fortune by manipulating the procedures regarding animal sacrifices and currency exchange at the temple. He had much to lose from exposure by Jesus. His solution was simple ... kill Jesus! 

He was later assassinated by zealots during the Jewish Revolt (66 CE - 72 CE).


The description of the sect of  the Pharisees in the gospel accounts is confirmed by first century historian Josephus.The Pharisees were a political party, a social movement, and a school of thought among Jews. They collaborated with the Romans during the occupation of Palestine and benefited enormously from this arrangement both financially and in terms of political influence. Jesus however saw through their
hypocrisy and never missed an opportunity to expose them!
     Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus 
( 15 December  37 CE  – 9 June 68 CE), better known as Nero, was Roman Emperor from 54 to 68 CE. He was infamous for his savage and cruel      persecution of  Christians during his reign. .
