Was Pontius Pilate real? A common argument against the accuracy of the Bible and its characters is “Science has disproven the Bible.” However there is a science that has continually confirmed Biblical history over and over again. The field of Archeology which seeks to uncover the mysteries of the past and confirm the known record continues to unearth evidence of people, cultures and events from the Bible. One of these discoveries was made as recently as 2018, confirming the existence of Pontius Pilate and King Herod. In this lesson Michael shows how this discovery was made and explains the significance of this discovery.
