Not only does Bible prophecy show that unbelief is unreasonable, but biblical archaeology has done the same. Today’s devotional points to one such piece of evidence. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
John 17:17 (ESV)
Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.
Robert Dick Wilson of Princeton Theological Seminary notes that “in 184 cases where the names of kings are transliterated into the Hebrew, the task has been done accurately. This means that for 3900 years the names of these kings have been faithfully transmitted. There are about forty of these kings living from 2,000 B.C. to 400 B.C. Each appears in chronological order ‘with reference to the kings of the same country and with respect to the kings of other countries…. No stronger evidence for the substantial accuracy of the Old Testament records could possibly be imagined, than this collection of kings.’ Mathematically it is one chance in 750,000,000,000,000,000,000, 000 that this data would be correctly recorded.” [Bernard Ramm, Protestant Christian Evidences, (Chicago: Moody Press, 1957), p. 24 citing R. D. Wilson, A Scientific Investigation of the Old Testament, p. 86]
