The Unshakeable Faith apologetics course contains a large section on archaeological treasures confirming the Bible’s historical accounts. Archaeology has confirmed the Bible’s historical accuracy to an amazing degree, in spite of the fact that most archaeologists have been infected with end-times skepticism. In this course we describe amazing artifacts in prominent museums and archaeological sites. In the context of this research we visited the British Museum, the Louvre in Paris, the Oriental Institute in Chicago, the University of Pennsylvania Museum, the Bible Museum in Brussels, the Istanbul Archaeological Museum, and many museums and sites in Rome, Israel, Turkey, and Greece. The accompanying PowerPoint/Keynote presentations (Keynote is the Apple equivalent of PowerPoint) contain high quality photos and video clips of the artifacts. These are also excellent tools for teaching Old Testament history, for they include actual statues and bas-reliefs of many kings and events and items illustrating cultural things mentioned in the Bible. These are like photographs from those ancient times.
The PowerPoint/Keynotes slides deal with ANCIENT WRITING (archaeology has disproved the modernistic view held in the 19th century that Moses couldn't have written the Pentateuch because writing didn't exist then), UR OF THE CHALDEES (Ur’s technologically advanced civilization, literacy, idolatrous tower, mass suicide and human sacrifice), EGYPT (the glories of the Pharaohs, Egypt’s religion, the Merneptah Stele), BABYLON (Nimrod and the Tower of Babel, the Babylonian religion, Gilgamesh, Nebuchadnezzar, Babylon’s glories, the destruction of Jerusalem, Belshazzar), ASSYRIA (Sennacharib, Shalmaneser, Tiglathpileser, Sargon, the palaces, the grand library, Assyria’s cruel and powerful military, the fall of northern Israel, the destruction of Samaria, the siege of Jerusalem, the fall of Lachish, the fall of Nineveh in fulfillment of amazing Bible prophecies), MEDO-PERSIA (Cyrus, Ahasuerus, Shushan the palace where Esther and Nehemiah lived and Daniel visited), plus the Great Isaiah Scroll found in the Dead Sea caves, Megiddo, Masada, Caesarea, the Siloam Tunnel, Nehemiah’s Wall, Pilate’s Court, the Temple Mount, the Southern Steps, the Temple Stones, and David’s Palace. The professional PowerPoint/Keynote presentations that are part of An Unshakeable Faith apologetics course consist of 1,850 slides dealing with archaeology, evolution/creation science, and the prophecies pertaining to Israel’s history.An Unshakeable Faith is available in print accompanied by a DVD containing the PowerPoint/Keynote presentations as well as in eBook and eDownload format from the online catalog at the Way of Life web site.
