Biblical Archaeology: Philip's Tomb and Gobekli Tepe
7 Aug 2011
I had heard the news that Philip the Apostle’s tomb had been found a few months ago, but I held off being excited because I know how those discoveries are often recanted later. As it turns out, it’s may not be the Apostle’s tomb, but Philip the Evangelist. Either way, it’s still an exciting find if true, because finding the tombs of people who are mentioned in Scripture still serve to provide more evidence for the reliability of Scripture.

Another find that has been revealed over the last couple of weeks has been equally as interesting. It’s that of Gobekli Tepe. Gobekli Tepe is being heralded as the oldest “Temple” ever found, predating Stonehenge by some 6,000 years. If true, it would provide more evidence that religion has always been a part of mankind’s life, and not something invented later on as part of culture. Stand to Reason has posted a short article on this, along with an interview of Ben Witherington regarding the ramifications for secular understandings of religious history. I highly recommend you follow the link STR provides in the article called Philip’s Tomb and listen to the interview; it’s only about 18 minutes.
