Lesson 6 - Abraham, Archaeology and History - Part 1


What evidence do we have of Abraham’s life outside of the biblical accounts? Not surprisingly, the answer is “None,” if we are seeking direct evidence. We have no birth certificate, marriage certificate or newspaper obituary. Such did not exist in his day. Interestingly, some scholars regard this lack of direct evidence as substantiation to their theory that Abraham was a fiction, not a real person. Yet, the absence of such information is not odd. Should such information ever be found, that would be the oddity.

Join Mark Lanier as we work through Abraham’s life, adding information and insight we get from various archaeological finds.  We begin our story in Genesis 11:27 and follow through until Genesis 25:11.
