Dig finds are backing up the Bible

‘Bible memory man’ Professor Tom Meyer said archaeological finds keep backing up biblical accounts.

Meyer (pictured above), renowned for his ability to recount entire Bible books from memory, has pointed to the finding last year in Jerusalem of a moat consistent with scripture’s words on King David.

Meyer, who is an author, public speaker and professor at Shasta Bible College in California, told CBN: “When they dug in Jerusalem, they found a giant moat – a moat that dates from the time of David, a defensive fortification right in the city of Jerusalem.”

It follows an earlier Jerusalem discovery also linked to King David.

“We found in 1994 King David’s name on a monument in the gate at Tel Dan, which is the north pole of Israel,” Meyer added.

“Ever since then, we’ve been getting these little drips and drops of information about King David’s kingdom.”

The other finds include confirmation of important biblical figures.

“Bible archaeology has given us a tsunami of evidence that we already know – that all these people existed. 

“But we have proof their names. I think 50 to 100 people [who are] mentioned in the Bible, that person’s exact name – King David, Isaiah, the prophet, King Hezekiah, etc. – we found their names and archaeological objects, which demonstrates the reliability and the accuracy of Scripture.”
