Wording of this Handout:
It really happened.
It doesn't matter what the Bible says, there ail always be someone who will say it isn't true, yet over the years what the Bible has said has been proven true over and over again.
take the Hittite nation. 'Experts' said it never existed, yet the Hittite cities have now been uncovered.
Take the walls of Jericho. 'Experts' said they didn't collapse, yet the ruins have been found, exactly as the Bible said.
Take the man Pontius Pilate. 'Experts' said he never ruled in Palestine, yet his name has been found carved into the stone there.
Take the cities os Sodom and Gomorrah and the other three with them. All found, despite the skeptics.
take the resurrection. Even the Jewish leaders couldn't locate the body, so they had to use bribes and lies to cover their failure.
There isn't a statement anywhere in the Bible which hasn't been proven absolutely reliable.
You find his body and then I'll believe he is still dead!
The Bible says "And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other."
(Matthew 24:31 New International Version)
