Biblical Archaeology: Proof of the Philistines


Another archeological find supports the Bible:

Ancient Philistine Dig Supports Biblical Account
CBN – July 25, 2011

TEL ES-SAFI, Israel — Archaeologists in Israel have uncovered an altar in the ancient city of Gath, home to the Israelites’ arch enemy the Philistines.

CBN News was at the dig site when the excavators uncovered the first horn of the altar. The find is revealing a great deal about the culture of Israel’s ancient foe — and the accuracy of the Bible.

The Bible tells about the Philistines throughout much of the Hebrew scriptures that we commonly refer to as the Old Testament.

This is interesting as we get closer to the end that archeologists continue to find more evidence of biblical peoples, figures, and events.

Of course, for those of us who believe the Bible, no further proof is needed. But for some who have heard statements from pseudo-archaeologists that deny the biblical accounts, it may be helpful for them to realize that as time goes on, more and more archaeological evidence surfaces that supports the Bible.

Bible prophecy has proven trustworthy and will again.
