When the Pharisees told Jesus to silence His followers for proclaiming Him the King of Glory, Jesus said, “I tell you that if these should keep silent, the stones would immediately cry out” (Luke 19:40). Archaeology is a sought-after adventure. Some enter this field studying antiquities, to disprove the Bible. But when many brush the dust of the earth from their knees, they confess that Jesus is Lord! The very rocks do cry out that Jesus lives. (…) Scores of archaeological findings have been made which confirm in clear outline or in exact detail historical statements in the Bible.
