We Hear You
ABR Website A Blessing
“Wow, I just stumbled onto this site and I am fascinated. I love archeology and finding the truths about Bible times and events. I am going to be a big viewer of yours. It is such a blessing that you all did this in a website. I am filled with joy."
A Question About Bart Ehrman’s Book, Forged
“A scholar has written a book called ‘Forged’ which claims the New Testament is a forgery. I know this is not true, but what is your opinion?”
A reply from ABR Director of Development, Henry Smith: I assume your email refers to Bart Ehrman’s latest polemic against the faith, Forged ? It has been thoroughly reviewed by Ben Witherington, NT Professor at Asbury Theological Seminary:
The online article is in 8 parts, and is lengthy, but I think you will find it worth reading.

Editor’s Note: The video to which you are referring was recorded in Utah in 2009. Dr. Wood spent several days there, presenting evidence at several churches on the reliability of the Bible with archaeological evidences. If you are interested in learning more about Jericho, we would highly recommend the DVD, Jericho Unearthed, which features Dr. Wood. It is available in our bookstore on the ABR website.
Lastly, our team plans to be in Israel from May 26–June 9, 2012, excavating at a site we believe is a very strong candidate fo...
