The Bible is unique in preparation, circulation, translation, and preservation. The Bible is by far the most published book in the world. It was the first book ever printed on a printing press and has dominated the presses ever since.
It was written over a period of fifteen hundred years by a great variety of men who were inspired of God. Also it has been translated into over a thousand foreign languages which are spoken by well over ninety percent of the world’s population.
In five years from today, there is a real possibility that it will be so in all known languages. We all know that archaeology has independently confirmed the historical accuracy of the scriptures. And not only have nearly all of the locations and traditions that are mentioned in the Bible been confirmed by field workers in the Middle East and researchers that study ancient histories, but specific events cited have often been shown to match in great detail.
The Associates for Biblical Research has extensively excavated Jericho. One of the fascinating features about this city is that the walls appear to have fallen outward. While an invading army would typically hit the walls inward upon the debris, the Bible says that God caused the walls to fall flat, so that the Israelites could go straight in. Skeptics once believed that the book of Daniel was in error when it discussed Belshazzar ruling Babylon.
The dynasties were revealed on cuneiform tablets excavated from ancient Babylon and Belshazzar did not show on the list. Yet Unger’s Bible Dictionary tells how a later find revealed that the sovereign, Nabonidus, traveled extensively and in his absence left his son Belshazzar to rule as co-regent.
That is why, in seeking to offer the ultimate reward to anyone who could interpret the mysterious message of doom, Belshazzar offered the position of “third in the kingdom” (Daniel 5:7). He could do no more since he was only second himself. Sir William Ramsey is regarded as one of the greatest archaeologists ever to have lived. Skeptical of the authorship and accuracy of the gospels and Acts, Ramsey set out to investigate.
Yet he concluded after thirty years of study that “Luke is a historian of the first rank; not merely are his statements of fact trustworthy, this author should be placed along with the very greatest of historians.” (Ramsey, W.M., The Bearing of Recent Discovery on the Trustworthiness of the New Testament, 1953, page 222.)
Is the bible worth of your consideration in scientific matters? Of course, and here listed below are the biblical facts. Evolution or Creationism both are a matter of belief. The fact is that Evolutionists have far more faith in their system of accidental assembly, than those who believe that God created all things in an orderly fashion.
The fact is the Bible is scientifically accurate. There has never been an irreconcilable discrepancy between scientific facts or laws and the scriptures. And the following facts are the proofs. Jeremiah 33:22 claims that the stars of the heaven are innumerable. Hippocrates, before the invention of the telescope charted and numbered one thousand and twenty-two stars.
Kepler later recounted and revised the number. Today scientists agree with Jeremiah. There are billions just in our galaxy. It is fascinating that the Bible makes the number of stars roughly equivalent to the number of grains of sand on the seashore (Genesis 22:17; Hebrews 11:12).
Carl Sagan also compared these two, leaning towards the number of stars being greater. Amazingly, the latest estimates of the gross number of sand grains are comparable to the modern estimated number of stars in the universe. Judges 5:20 mentions “the stars in their courses.
