Focus on the Accuracy of the Bible - Part 1
What you'll discover
This Tour is the first of a series of Virtual Bible Tours based on the resources of the Louvre Museum.
Focus on the Accuracy of the Bible – Part 1
(Language of presentation: French)
The Bible has survived time, detractors, attempts to corrupt it, and accusations of inaccuracy…
During this visit, evidence of the Bible’s accuracy will be presented alongside the archaeological resources on display at the Louvre Museum.
Focus on the Accuracy of the Bible – Part 1 focuses on the evidence of the accuracy of the Bible in connection with the Empires of Accad, Assyria, the Kingdom of Moab and the mighty Egypt (covering parts from the 3rd to the 1st millennium BC).
What does the Akkadian Empire, the first and oldest kingdom discovered so far in Mesopotamia, reveal about the relevance of the Bible?
How do the remains on display in the Louvre’s superb Khorsabad Court confirm the accuracy of the Bible?
What do the Louvre’s resources reveal about the divine name, Jehovah?
In its ancient form, the tetragrammaton (composed of four consonants) survived on a 3,000-year-old stele which, after its destruction, should have disappeared forever… How did it come to us? And how does this stele confirm the accuracy of the Bible?
It was not until the 19th century that cities such as Babylon, Akkad, Uruk, Nineveh, Calah and Ur were among the remains uncovered during archaeological excavations.
Biblical history and chronology take us to the end of the 3rd and beginning of the 2nd millennium BC, a period when these cities were flourishing and some had already reached their climax.
As a faithful witness, the Bible places events, cities, kings and kingdoms in a precise and relevant context, although the details of their history were not the object of the inspired account.
Come with us on a virtual tour of the Louvre and examine some of these amazing ‘Silent Witnesses’ in their historical and biblical context and, above all, appreciate the Bible for what it is: the most reliable of resources, an account inspired by God.
The evidence is there, and our aim is to bring it to you!
