Day 1 continued
One more comment from Day 1. A stone with Pontius Pilate's name was discovered in Caesarea in 1961. This is the only archaeological evidence for the existence of Pontius Pilate. One of Lon's favorite phrases was -- the more they dig, the more the Bible proves to be true.
I didn't need archaeological evidence to believe the accuracy and the perfection of the Bible. But it's still fascinating to learn about discoveries like this one. The original stone can be seen in the Israeli Museum in Jerusalem. The pictured stone is a replica.
Today I'm so thankful for God's Holy word that comes alive before our very eyes.
