Archaeology vs. The Bible

If you're looking for hard evidence for the biblical stories, the archaeologists have it - or more accurately, they don't have it. This video features Anne, a real working archaeologist who explains what archaeologists do and how they do it and what they find. And they find very
little of significance to support the Bible stories. King David existed, but he was only a two-bit chieftain, and the Exodus did not happen, and Joshua did not level the walls of Jericho. As for early Christianity, it was far from being a community united in one belief and spread by love, as
the Bible claims. (video produced by - used with permission)

Even the few allegedly sustained elements within the Bible are easily called into question by noting that the various historical murals and inscriptions attesting to similar events may well have been the source for the legends found in the Bible.
