The Historical Reliability of the New Testament in the Light of ArchaeologyOn the whole archaeological work has unquestionably strengthened confidence in the reliability of the Scriptural record. More than one archaeologist has found his respect for the Bible increased by the experience of excavation in Palestine. Archaeology has in many cases refuted the views of modern critics. Millar Burrows, Professor of Archaeology, Yale University[1]Charlotte Allen observes that Archaeology, which was then a young science, was by and large ignored by the academic biblical scholars of the [nineteenth] century. For the great German exegetes of the era a voyage to Palestine was beside the point, as the life of the historical Jesus was for them solely a matter of interpreting texts.[2] Today, scholars know that archaeological data can be a valuable aid to interpreting texts, as well as providing independent adjudication of a texts historical veracity.Allen affirms that archaeological excavations in the Holy Land have tended to support the historical value of the Gospels, at least as sources of information about the conditions of their times.[3] As Nelson Glueck states, on the one hand It may be stated categorically that no archaeological discovery has ever contraverted a biblical reference, whereas on the other Scores of archaeological findings have been made which confirm in clear outline or exact detail historical statements in the Bible
