But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased. (Daniel 12:4)
“The oldest hand-written passages from the Hebrew Bible identical to versions in use today have been identified by researchers using digital technology to read an ancient scroll.”
Many will find the above statement hard to believe, but archaeology is constantly making discoveries that support the Bible instead of falsifying it. In this particular case, it is advancements in technology that have allowed us to verify a scroll found in Israel in 1970. As the BBC article, explains, the relic was too fragile to unwrap so Israeli & US experts used a 3D X-ray to scan the scroll.
“Scholars say the text in Ein Gedi – in standard Hebrew – offer the first physical evidence of a long-held belief that the version of the Hebrew Bible used today goes back 2,000 years.”
“The text is “100 per cent identical” to the version of the Book of Leviticus that has been in use for centuries”
This is not good news for those who believe the Bible has been corrupted! As we cover in our article – Is the Bible reliable? – scripture can be trusted and has been proven to reliable is every way.
It doesn’t take much effort to find evidence to show the Bible to be trustworthy, but it does take an open heart. In these end times God is unveiling more evidence to us as the spiritual battle for our souls nears the climax. Have you met Jesus Christ at the cross of Calvary?
Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. (Matthew 24:35)
