Archaeologists Discover Evidence That Bethlehem Existed Centuries Before Jesus

It is always good to have confirmation of what we already know in our hearts to be true. 

The coin-sized remnant of the seal proves that Bethlehem - first mentioned in the Book of Genesis - “was indeed a city in the Kingdom of Judah, and possibly also in earlier periods”, he said.

Yet another confirmation of the historicity of the Bible.  This post led me to purchase and read James K. Hoffmeier’s “Israel in Egypt:  The Evidence for the Authenticity of the Exodus Tradition.”  This is a heavy but fascinating read.  It turns out that in Genesis and Exodus there are lots of authentic Egyptian words and references to Egyptian places and events and habits which can be confirmed by Egyptian archaeological research as belonging to the second century BC.

This illustrates the silliness of 19th century liberalism, which still permeates many archeological academic establishments today.  They *assumed* that everything in the Bible was incorrect until proven otherwise. 

But anyway, nice to see the accuracy of the biblical record regularly confirmed, as this is.
