  6. “It must be extremely significant that, in view of the great mass of corroborative evidence regarding the Biblical history of these periods, there exists today not one unquestionable find of archaeology that proves the Bible to be in error at any point.” —Dr. Henry Morris

  7. The Flood — Genesis 7 and 8 88 different traditional accounts. A universal destruction of the human race. An ark or a boat was the means of escape. A seed of mankind was left. Wickedness of man brought about the flood. Some even mention Noah by name.

His place in history was severely questioned on this account.

  16. But in the years, 1842-1845, P.E. Botta, uncovered the tremendous royal palace of Sargon. Among the other things discovered was an account of the siege of Ashdod mentioned in Isaiah.

  17. Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the Lord by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the Lord stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and put it also in writing, saying,

  18. “Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia, The Lord God of heaven hath given me all the kingdoms of the earth; and he hath charged me to build him an house at Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Who is there among you of all his people? his God be with him, and let him go up to Jerusalem, which is in Judah, and build the house of the Lord God of Israel, he is the God, which is in Jerusalem.” Ezra 1:1-3

  19. “I am Cyrus, king of the world, great king. “I gathered all their former inhabitants and returned to them their habitations.”
