Great Cities of the Bible

(Nineveh)
The Bible is always historically accurate and reliable.

Nowhere can this be seen more clearly than on the many 
occasions where the scriptures discuss specific people and places.


Critics and cynics have long challenged the existence of cities, towns and places mentioned in the scriptures.

Yet modern archaeologists repeatedly unearth evidence confirming the Bible record ... confounding the speculations of scholars.

A classic example of a great Bible city whose very existence was challenged for decades was Nineveh, the proud capital of the mighty Assyrian empire.

Up until the early 19th century, no archeological evidence  had ever been found to prove that Nineveh existed. Infact very little was known about the Assyrian empire outside of the Bible
record. Skeptics sneered, claiming Nineveh belonged to the age of fables and was no more a real
city than Camelot. 

However, in 1842 the French Consul General, Paul-Emile Botta began to investigate vast mounds that lay near the junction of the Tigris and Khosr Rivers, close to the Iraqi city of Mosul.

His archeological expedition eventually led to the discovery of the magnificent palace of Assyrian King Sargon II. 

A few years later (in 1849), British adventurer Sir Austen Henry Layard unearthed the Kuyunjik mound nearby and found the lost palace of Sennacherib with its 71 rooms and colossal bas 
relief's.

Nineveh had been re-discovered!


Of course, none of these discoveries came as any surprise to sincere bible students.

They believed the Bible when it referred to Nineveh 23 times and Assyria 132 times in the Hebrew
Scriptures alone. 

"Great City of the Bible" confirmed once again the unerring truth of the Bible statement:

"Let God be found true though every man be found a liar"  (Rom 3:4)


The purpose of this DVD ROM (computer use only) is to provide exhaustive reference works and multi-media material to help us learn more about the many cities, towns and places  mentioned in the Bible.

Paul - Emile Botta (top left) and Sir Austen Henry Layard (bottem right) confounded Bible critics when they discovered the ancient ruins of Nineveh between 1842 and 1849.
Babylon was a city-state of ancient Mesopotamia, the remains of which are found in present-day Al Hillah, Babil Province, Iraq, about 85 kilometers (55 mi) south of Baghdad. All that remains of the original ancient famed city of Babylon today is a mound, or tell, of broken mud-brick buildings and debris in the fertile Mesopotamian plain between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers.

The first reported archaeological excavation of Babylon was conducted by Claudius James Rich (shown below) in 1811-12 and again in 1817
(Ancient Babylon)
First Century Jerusalem from the North, with Herod's temple and Fort Antonia  clearly in view.
The apostle Paul visited the ancient city of Athens in about 50 CE on his second missionary tour..
Towards the end of the first century, Jesus had to warn Christians in Ephesus "not to lose the love they had at first" (Re 2: 1- 6)
The Phoenician city of Sidon was the frequent subject of warnings from Jehovah's prophets. (Isa 23:4,12  Jer 25:17, Eze 28: 20 -24, Joe 3: 4 -8), Zec 9: 1 -4) . These prophecies were fulfilled with devasting accuracy as secular history confirms Sidon was demolished time and again at the hands of Babylon, Persia, Greece and Rome.
