Bible FAQ: Did You Know...


Did you know that for a number of years, some skeptics actually disputed the New Testament accounts about Pontius Pilate? No hard artifacts existed at the time to confirm his existence and position, and later extra-biblical historical mention of him was suspected as having been improperly borrowed from the Christian scriptures and later creeds. Then, in 1961, archaeologists found a first century theater inscription at Caesarea Maritima in Israel, dedicated from "Pontius Pilate, Prefect of Judea," to "Tiberius Caesar." What the Bible had professed and preserved in scripture had achieved hard artifact verification nearly 2,000 years later. Chalk one up for God's people!
