Transcript: 20 Archaeological Finds for the Old Testament (with Titus Kennedy)

Full text of a discussion titled ‘20 Archaeological Finds for the Old Testament’ with Titus Kennedy.

What are the top archaeological discoveries that support the Old Testament? Do finds both illuminate and support the reliability of the Bible? In this video, Sean McDowell talks with field archaeologist Dr. Titus Kennedy about 20 discoveries that span the breadth of the Old Testament Scriptures.

Listen to the MP3 Audio here:


SEAN MCDOWELL: Does archaeology support the Bible? If so, how? Today our guest is Dr. Titus Kennedy, a professional field archaeologist and author of Unearthing the Bible, and a colleague of mine, an adjunct professor at Biola University Talbot School of Theology. What we’re going to do is look at 20 archaeological discoveries that offer insight into ancient biblical culture, and each in different ways which provide support for the reliability of the Scriptures.

We will look at each of these briefly with the goal of providing an overview of the entirety of the Old Testament so you can have a macro perspective of the kinds of findings that corroborate key people, events, and stories in biblical history.

Dr. Titus Kennedy, thanks so much for joining me today.

DR. TITUS KENNEDY: Thanks for having me on the show, Sean.

SEAN MCDOWELL: Yeah, I’ve really been looking forward to this one. I’ve been reading your book. It’s fantastic. But before we jump into it, because what we’re going to do is we have 20 finds, and basically I’m going to ask you for each one of these. What is the find? You’ll give me a brief explanation. I’m going to follow up and say, why is this find significant for biblical history or biblical reliability?

But before jumping in, we’re focusing on the Old Testament. We’re going to come back later and focus on the New Testament, on the Gospels, and the person of Jesus. But give me a sense, because you helped me pick these 20 archaeological findings. Why these 20? What big story do they kind of tell when taken together?
