Proverbs 8:34-36 Blessed is the man who hears me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at my door posts. For whoever finds me finds life, and will obtain favor from Yahweh. But he who sins against me wrongs his own soul. All those who hate me love death.” Psalm 84: 11 For Yahweh God is a sun and a shield. Yahweh will give grace and glory. He withholds no good thing from those who walk blamelessly. 12 Yahweh of Armies, blessed is the man who trusts in you. 1 John 5:5 Now who is the one overcoming the world, except the one believing that Jesus is the Son of God?

Archaeological evidence of Gallio who tried and judged St Paul as told in Acts 18:12. Luarvick (Own work) [CC BY-SA 3.0 ( or GFDL (], via Wikimedia Commons
These REAL Bible discoveries continue to pop out of the earth with staggering, amazing, mind blowing archaeological evidence proving the Bible.
Many of these Bible discoveries were discovered before our parents, or in some cases our grandparents were born, yet so many of us are still not aware of them, because they are kept silent or hidden out the way, and we do not always learn about them unless we seek and then we find, just as Jesus told us.
Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.  Matthew 7:7. KJV.

Just as there was no evidence outside the Bible of the famous fifth governor of Roman Judea, Pontius Pilate, who was famous for the trial and crucifixion of Jesus in Matthew 27:2.
Until the Pilate stone inscription was discovered in 1961 with Pontius Pilate's name.

The Gallio Inscription.
We yet again have an archaeological discovery of a collection of nine fragments discovered in the 20th century at the Temple of Apollo in Delphi, Greece, (Image above) with a man named Gallio who tried and judged St Paul.
St Paul is well known for writing half of the new testament Bible as told in Acts 18:12.
And when Gallio was the deputy of Achaia, the Jews made insurrection with one accord against Paul, and brought him to the judgment seat.

Claudius Caesar.
The archaeological evidence was written in 52 CE by the famous Roman emperor who was Claudius Caesar, as also told in the Holy Bible of Acts 11:28.
And there stood up one of them named Agabus, and signified by the spirit that there should be great dearth throughout all the world: which came to pass in the days of Claudius Caesar.

This archaeological discovery of a man named Gallio as told in Acts 18:12, and Claudius Caesar, as told in Acts 11:28, is again absolute proof both lived, who are recorded in the new testament and are historical records which establish the dates of St Paul as told, and confirmed in the book of Acts.
Archaeology certainly proves the Bible.
I pray the archaeology that proves the Bible will help to bring you to faith in Jesus Christ, follow Him and be saved. Amen.

Delphi Inscription
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Delphi Inscription, or Gallio Inscription (IG, VII, 1676; SIG, II, 801d),[1] is the name given to the collection of nine fragments of a letter written by the Roman emperor Claudius c. 52 CE and discovered early in the 20th century at the Temple of Apollo in DelphiGreece.[2][3]
The reconstructed inscription begins thus:
Tiber[ius Claudius Cae]sar Augustus Ge[rmanicus, invested with tribunician po]wer [for the 12th time, acclaimed Imperator for t]he 26th time, F[ather of the Fa]ther[land...]. For a l[ong time have I been not onl]y [well-disposed towards t]he ci[ty] of Delph[i, but also solicitous for its pro]sperity, and I have always guard[ed th]e cul[t of t]he [Pythian] Apol[lo. But] now [since] it is said to be desti[tu]te of [citi]zens, as [L. Jun]ius Gallio, my fri[end] an[d procon]sul, [recently reported to me, and being desirous that Delphi] should retain [inta]ct its for[mer rank, I] ord[er you (pl.) to in]vite well-born people also from [ot]her cities [to Delphi as new inhabitants....][4]
The reference to proconsul Gallio in the inscription provides an important marker for developing a chronology of the life of Apostle Paul by relating it to the trial of Paul in Achaea mentioned in the Acts of the Apostles (18:12-17).[5][6]
