Discoveries in Archaeology and other sciences continue to support the historicity of the Bible. Dr. Steven Collins said, “The destruction of Sodom is quite clear in Genesis Chapter 19.
Then the LORD rained on Sodom and Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven,
25 and He overthrew those cities, and all the valley, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and what grew on the ground. Genesis 19:24-25 NASB
The discovery of the ancient city of Sodom by Dr. Collins and his team is now called the dig at “Tall el-Hammam.” Dr. Collins and Dr. Gary Byers share the importance of these discoveries, and they explain how both the old and new testaments point to Jesus, the Messiah. .”It is hard for us to talk about God the Father because we cannot wrap our minds around Him. Jesus of Nazareth is the projection of God in the flesh, God who is with us. Jesus says if you have seen me, you have seen the Father.”
