Show About Bible History Online (148k)
Bible History Online has been providing information and insights
into biblical history since 1995.
We affirm that the Bible is about God's activities in history. It deals with
actual people in an actual geographical area during actual specified historical
times who had contact with other actual peoples and empires whom we know of from
historical sources outside the Bible. We believe that knowledge of the
historical background of the Bible is essential to a comprehensive understanding
of the Scriptures.
Recent archaeological discoveries as
well as comparative historical research and philological studies, along with an
analysis and interpretation of the Old Testament text have made possible a
fuller and more reliable picture of Biblical history than in previous eras.
With the advent of the computer and Internet age, the Lord has allowed the study
of the Bible to be greatly enhanced, bringing the images of the past as well as
the work of devoted teachers and scholars right into our homes. Bible
History Online hopes to assist and encourage all those who humbly pursue and
correctly handle the word of truth. (2 Tim 2:15).
"Bible History Online represents a body of work produced from a lifetime
of passion for Bible history. I started this website in 1995 to provide
an online resource for students of the Bible and history. This site is
not meant to be a complete examination of subjects but a place to find
maps, images, helpful tools, and basic information about people, places,
and events in the ancient world. If Bible History Online serves to help
anyone in their passion and conviction that the Bible is the written
Word of God, and Jesus is the Word of God "made flesh", then I will
rejoice." - Rusty Russell
