Archaeology news: 4,000-year ‘evidence’ could prove Abraham was real, Bible expert claims | Science | News

But there are, of course, those who argue the Old Testament’s accounts of Abraham’s life are grounded in reality.

And there may even be archaeological evidence to support this claim, according to Tom Meyer, a professor of Bible studies at Shasta Bible College and Graduate School in California, US.

He told “Archaeological evidence has been unearthed that could relate to one of the most famous persons in the Bible: Abraham.

“The lack of archaeological evidence related directly to Abraham shouldn’t be a surprise since, according to the Bible, Abraham was a semi-nomadic, tent-dwelling shepherd; he never lived in a house with foundations, but travelled to different parts of Canaan during different times of the year 4,000 years ago according to Biblical chronology.
