Pre-Forum Conference: Evidence for Old Testament History

Are the historical narratives of the Old Testament a bunch of myths and legends concocted by Jews writing during the Babylonian exile, as sceptics say? What is the evidence for the historicity of history according to the Old Testament? This seminar will examine the internal and external evidence as it relates to the sweep of biblical history from Abraham’s Ur to Daniel’s Babylon. Come along and see the latest archaeological evidence relating to the Old Testament!

This Pre-Forum Conference will take place preceding the European Leadership Forum on Friday, 22 May from 15:00-18:00 CEST.
