This reminds me of the reliability of scripture. The Bible is not out to mislead us. It is verifiable and factual. While the Bible is primarily concerned with a spiritual subject matter, namely the Glory of God through redemptive history, when it talks about people and places, those people and places are REAL! We do not have to sift through legends or myth, this is talking about reality. It is so great when archeology confirms what we read in the pages of our bibles everyday!
Keep diving into your copies of the WORD!
