Are the Miracles in the Bible Real?

Did you know that the walls falling down in Jericho is a historically verifiable truth? This isn’t some kind of fantasy conjured up by religionists over the years. Archaeologists discovered that in 1456 B.C. a catastrophic event hit the city of Jericho and the city walls came down.

Now, archaeologists call this “event” an earthquake, but that makes it no less of a miracle. Think about it: After six days of walking around the city, the Israelites walked around Jericho seven times on the seventh day. They blew the ram’s horn, they shouted, and all of a sudden, an earthquake happened right at that moment. Coincidence? Miracle seems like a better word.

It’s kind of funny how people labor to discredit the miraculous in the Bible. I’ve had people tell me that the crossing of the Red Sea wasn’t really a big deal because in that general location is a place called the Sea of Reeds where the water is very shallow, and the Israelites could have walked across the ankle-deep water. If that was the case, it makes it even more of a miracle because that means the whole Egyptian army drowned in ankle deep water!

So move away from the business of trying to discredit the Bible and just accept what it says as a revelation of the power of God.

    Nice! Or better yet that an earthquake caused a circular split that caused the walls that surrounded a city to collapse. It is odd how diligent folks will work to prove the biblical record wrong when believing is so simple and most times far more plausible.
