Archaeology

Introductory article on biblical archaeology, addressing some common questions about the historical reliability of the Bible.
Old Testament scholar Thomas Finley examines LDS scholar Hugh Nibley's comparisons between the Book of Mormon and the Lachish Letters, written from the Jewish town of Lachish about the same time that the main Book of Mormon story line begins. Finley shows that Nibley's parallels do not support the historical authenticity of the Book of Mormon.
