Dr. Josh Bowen, an Assyriologist, author, & host of the Digital Hammurabi show explores the history of the Old Testament with me to learn how historically reliable the Bible actually is. Are there contradictions in the Bible or historical errors in the Old Testament? Who even wrote the Pentateuch? Was Daniel a real prophet or was his book written after the events he allegedly prophesied? How do we know when Daniel was written?
Did the story of Jericho really happen? Did Joshua actually destroy Jericho and invade Canaan, or is the Biblical conquest of Canaan actually true? Is the Bible historical? If not, how much of the Bible is true and how much of the Bible is myth or legend. In this episode of Nothing Fails Like Bible History, discover just how much of the Biblical story of the conquest of Canaan is fact, supported by archaeology, and how much is fiction – either debunked or unsupported by the archaeological evidence.
