Bible History Online is a Christian ministry devoted to the teaching of the Word of God with a particular focus on the ancient world and the Bible. This navigational bar will take you where you want to go. Just click on one of the links.
The Bible Knowledge Accelerator programs are designed to be informational tools and are free to the public.

Welcome to the Incredible Bible download section. The study of the historicity of the Bible is a worthy endeavor and God's Word will always stand true. Keep in mind that this was the first BKA program so the graphics were intended for the Windows 3.1 user with 16 color capabilities. This program will be designed again from scratch in the near future.

This Bronze helmut which is now at the National War Historical Museum in Sofia, Bulgaria was found in a tomb buried along with its owner around 500 BC in Thrace, north of the Hellespont. The narrow eye sockets and overlapping nose guards were trademarks of Corinthian style armor found throughout the Agaean world. It was usually adorned with a crest of dyed horsehair. The helmut made it hard to hear and hard to see on either side but it protected the head. The rising power of the Persians with Darius and Xerxes provoked  mass production in metal working shops near the sanctuary of Hephaistos, the patron god of smiths. The short sword and the lance were the soldiers principal weapons during this time period.

Bible Knowledge Accelerator #1: Incredible Bible v6.23.95 

Site1  Download Size (822 kb)

As with anything in God's creation the deeper you search, the more beauty and perfection you find. Such is the Bible. This program focuses on a closer understanding of the wonder Book, its uniqueness in comparison to other sacred religious texts, canonicity, various names and divisions, ancient writing instruments, materials, and manuscripts, inspiration, and a brief history of pre-reformation translators, English translations, and some notes on modern Bible translations.

Skeptics for so long have said, "Moses could not have written the first parts of the Bible because writing was unknown at that time" (1500 BC). But recent discoveries in archaeology have changed the minds of those skeptics by uncovering writings thousands of years before the time of Moses. Sumerian writings dating as far back as 3500 BC (about 2000 years before Moses), the ancient Hieroglyphs of Egypt , and the incredible writings of the Babylonians dating almost as far back, have been uncovered. Writing was a hallmark of civilization and progress even leading to the development of the alphabet.

Note: There are many more programs that are being upgraded to Windows and will be available soon. Please be patient and pray that the Lord frees up my very busy schedule.
