I Don’t Remember the Score

Chalk up another point for the Bible in its continuing defeat of the skeptics of its content.  It turns out that archaeologists have found proof of Joseph in Egypt and confirmation of the Pharoah’s dreams as well.  This is a pretty fun read actually and yet another in a long line of “see I told you so’s” that the Bible has had through the ages.  According to the Middle East Media Research Institute, some coins were found buried in a box that contain a picture representation of Joseph along with his Hebrew and Egyptian names and dates when they were minted, which might give us a better idea of when the Exodus occured as well.  There are also proof of the dreams that Joseph interpreted according to the Bible:

“The researcher identified coins from many different periods, including coins that bore special markings identifying them as being from the era of Joseph. Among these, there was one coin that had an inscription on it, and an image of a cow symbolizing Pharaoh’s dream about the seven fat cows and seven lean cows, and the seven green stalks of grain and seven dry stalks of grain. It was found that the inscriptions of this early period were usually simple, since writing was still in its early stages, and consequently there was difficulty in deciphering the writing on these coins. But the research team [managed to] translate [the writing on the coin] by comparing it to the earliest known hieroglyphic texts…

Please understand me when I say that one of the reasons that I believe the Bible is the unflappable credibility it has shown when it comes to the truth.  There is yet to be a discovery that proves the Bible got the facts wrong and the number of people who have tried to claim the Bible was wrong about something only to be found mistaken themselves is truly more than I can remember.  So, I don’t remember the score, but count it Bible (one more) and skeptics (still trying to get one).

  1. I love this stuff.

    You and I don’t need any of this as reasons to believe in the Bible. But I gotta tell you … it just makes me smile and say: “Thank you, Lord!”

  2. interesting discussion over at http://blog.bibleplaces.com/2009/09/josephs-coins.html

    Scarabs or coins, it doesn’t matter to us. It puts Joseph where the bible says.
    Inaccuracy in the Qu’ran and book of Mormon don’t seem to matter to them. accuracy in the bible matters to me, and helps evangelize.

  3. I got a chance to check out the link that you left. It was a pretty good discussion. I want to see more details come out on this story at some point, especially the dating they were talking about. It might help put some more of those, who was the Pharaoh of the Exodus questions to rest.
