Doctrinal and Mission Statements
WE AT BIBLE HISTORY ONLINE BELIEVE ...
That the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are
verbally inspired of God and are without error as originally written, and that
they are the authoritative Word of God; the only infallible rule of faith and
practice for the Christian life.
In one God, eternally existing in three Persons:
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and we believe that these three are co-eternal and
of equal dignity and power.
In the deity of Jesus Christ; His miraculous conception
by the Holy Spirit; His virgin birth; His sinless, perfect life; His vicarious
and substitutionary death through the shedding of His blood on the Cross of
Calvary; His bodily resurrection for our justification; His ascension to the
right hand of the Father; His present ministry as High Priest and Advocate; and
His personal and imminent return, "Our blessed hope;" and we believe that all
things shall finally be subjected to Him.
That man was created by and for God; that by disobeying
God, he (every person) became a sinner and thereby incurred spiritual death
which is separation from God, and physical death as a consequence; and that all
the human race are born in sin and are sinners by nature and practice.
That the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins, according
to the scriptures, as a vicarious, substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who
believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood.
In the present ministry of the Holy Spirit indwelling
all believers and thus enabling and empowering the life and ministry of the

everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting punishment of the

Our mission is to publish online
historical and archaeological information and discoveries
relating to the written history and inspired revelation contained in the old and
new testaments of the Bible.
Thanks to Archaeology, our certainty
of the accuracy of the Bible in the light of historical evidence has been
immeasurably enhanced. Ever since the American scholar Edward Robinson laid the
foundations of Biblical archaeology with his work in Israel in the nineteenth
century, the study of Biblical history and ancient studies has seen
After thousands of years, the
forgotten world of the near east has come alive to us again. The rulers
and peoples of the lands that stretched from Mesopotamia to Asia Minor to the
Nile are speaking to our modern world through their unearthed writings and the
very stuff of their lives.
One can learn about recent
excavations in Mesopotamia uncovering the dynasties of Ur, the Biblical hometown
of Abraham, who is the central figure in the Old Testament. Abraham is
still today celebrated as both the father of Arab and Jewish people and the
first patriarch of the nation Israel.
Israel's history recorded in the
Bible touched the greatest empires in the history of the world including Egypt,
Assyria, Babylon, Persia, Greece, and even Rome. Cities referred to in the
Scriptures, like Nineveh, Ashur and Babylon, along with their monarchs, palaces,
and royal homes, their city gates and walls, their sanctuaries and temple
towers, have been discovered and excavated.
The annals of the warrior kings of
Assyria and Babylon, written on cuneiform tablets, have been found in the
thousands confirming what has been handed down to us in the Hebrew Scriptures in
the books of the Kings and the Chronicles. Archaeology has brought us closer to
the Elamites, Horites, and the Hittites of Scripture. The Philistines can
be seen in living shapes imprinted on Egyptian temple walls. What an
opportunity for us today! We are alive in a time where modern archaeology
has illuminated for us as with a powerful searchlight, the scenes of the ancient
world, helping us to understand what the Bible has to say in its historical and
Ultimately we pursue our mission to aid students,
parents and teachers of the Scriptures with Biblical and historical information
for the purpose of furthering the gospel, the saving grace of Jesus Christ.
"The Bible was written in an
environment that is
now unfamiliar to most of its readers. The individual realization of the modern world with
its new facilities, products, and problems is quite different from the social and economic
conditions described in the Bible. Some of its language is puzzling, and can easily be
misconstrued if one does not have some explanation of the ancient background."
