The Bible's Internal Proofs of its Authentic History Probably no historical record has been more scoffed at than the Bible.
However, the facts show that if it weren't considered a book of religion and it had only recently been discovered by archaeologists, it would be proclaimed the most significant find in all history.
Consider the well-documented historical accounts of what happened when the king of Assyria attacked Judah during the time of King Hezekiah, then compare that to the Bible's historical details as found in account at Second Chronicles 32.
Notice that the Gospel writer Luke wrote in the book of Acts (in Chapter 2, verse 29): 'It's good to speak to you openly about the patriarch David; for he died, was buried, and his tomb is still with us to this day.' Yet, many modern critics claim that David never existed!
Why would anyone say such a thing when there is no proof at all that he is fictional?
– things that nobody would be interested in today – and ask why anyone would make all of this up. Also realize that each of the names actually meant something in Hebrew, so they weren't just a jumble of sounds.
Consider the fact that few would question the authenticity of the Tomb of King David (although the current location is questionable), since it is so well documented by known accurate historians, such as Josephus.
For its details as to family lines, lands of occupation, life spans, and events should provide positive proof to even the most skeptical observers that its accounts are genuine and accurate, because no one would go into such minute detail if they were simply creating a forged document.
Take for example the genealogies found at Genesis -, 10:1-31, -32, 14:1-8, , -24, 25:1-4 & 12-19, , 28:6-19, 36:1-4 & 9-43, 38:1-5, 46:8-27, 48:7, Numbers 1:1-42, 2:5-32, -60, and 27:1, just to start with.
The details in these accounts prove the Bible to be a compilation of amazingly accurate historical details.
Also, read the genealogies that start in First Chronicles, and you'll find many names of ancient people who went on to found cities and countries that we're still familiar with today.
Look at the long lists of names of people, then see who their fathers were and who they descended from, the things they did, etc.
And look at the meticulous records of the people who served in the court of King David, as can be found from 1 Chronicles 23 to the end of that book.Who they were, where they were from, to whom they were related, and what their positions were, is all listed in great detail.
