Archeology And The Bible
(More To Be Added!)
Archeology helps confirm the truth and reliability of the Bible. In addition, the many fantastic finds bring new light to the people, places, cultures and times of the biblical period. Archeology proves the skeptics wrong and the Bible to be true.
There are two very important issues of significance concerning the Dead Sea Scrolls. The first area of significance is that in the past, skeptical scholars have assumed that the most ancient Biblical manuscripts, prior to the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls, were filled with errors and editorial changes. These critical scholars believed that since the Bible was hand-copied, the copies we have today would be very different from the original manuscripts. As it has turned out, the Dead Sea Scrolls have proven the accuracy of the manuscripts we've had all along. You see, the Dead Sea Scrolls are about 1,000 years older than the previous Biblical ancient manuscripts called the Apello Codex . So when scholars compared the Apello Codex text, dating back to about 945 A.D., with the Dead Sea Scrolls which dates to at least 100 years prior to Christ, they discovered only minor and insignificant differences. This confirmed the reliability of the Scriptures that we've had all along.
The second great significance of the Scrolls is when considering Biblical Prophecy. It's tempting for the critical scholars and lay people to think that the Biblical prophecies were written after they happened, making them "not" prophecies at all. The Dead Sea Scrolls proved that this was not so. The Dead Sea Scroll manuscripts, which are copies, are dated from 300 to 100 B.C. There is a complete Scroll of the Book of Isaiah, and a second which is almost complete. Isaiah has numerous prophesies that were fulfilled by Jesus including that wonderful prophecy in Isaiah, Chapter 53. Since the Isaiah Scrolls are dated to about 250 B.C., this confirms these passages to not only be prophetic, but they give further evidence that the Bible is true.

"Scrolls 2000 Years Old Prove the Bible"
Dr. Patton is the staff Geologist for the Qumran Plateu excavation in Israel, the site that produced the Dead Sea Scrolls some 2,000 years ago. These scrolls, perhaps the most significant archeological discovery of all time, have changed the way we view the Bible. Many have been led to believe that the original text of the Bible has deteriorated over years of copying and recopying. The Dead Sea Schrolls provide a test of that hypothesis, allowing us to compare modern versions with recently discovered manuscripts written over 2,000 years ago. Dr. Patton will take you to the same scene of the original caves where the scrolls were discovered with one of the Bedouins who made the discovery. This is a fascinating story with eternal implications. Dr. Patton has a broad educational background; four years at Florida College, Temple Terrace, FL (Bible); two years at Austin Peay State University, Clarksville, TN (Geology); two years at Indiana Univ./Purdue Univ., Indianapolis, IN (Geology); two years, Pacific School of Graduate Studies. He has worked as Geologist in US, Canada, Australia, England, Mexico, Peru, Bolivia, Cambodia, Israel, and Jordan. Dr. Patton has participated in dinosaur excavations in Colorado, Texas, Utah, Wyoming and Canada. He is credited with excavating the longest consecutive dinosaur trail in North America, totaling 157 tracks, extending over 500 feet. He is a member of the Geological Society of America and was a speaker at their 1997 annual convention. Dr. Patton lectures at universities across the United States. He has conducted up to twelve Creation/Evolution Seminaries a year for twenty five years. He has participated in numerous public debates on creation/evolution including radio and TV debates.

Influential archeologists in Israel are declaring that archeology has proved "the Israelites were never in Egypt, did not conquer the land in a military campaign and did not pass it on the 12 tribes of Israel," and "the empire of David and Solomon never existed." At the same time, other leading archeologists strongly disagree, assuring us that such claims "are either grossly misleading, illogical, disingenuous or all three."
Can the Old Testament be trusted for its historical account and does archeology provide evidence for its accuracy. What does the evidence say? Dr. Patton has personally investigated the claims and presents the evidence in a way that will allow you to draw your own conclusions.
