This latest issue of Bible and Spade is, once again, packed with material that will equip the Christian to defend the faith and challenge unbelief. Four main articles highlight this issue:
1. Contested Conflagration: Joshua and the Conquest of Hazor by Cambria Jones. Cambria outlines the basic archaeological, biblical and historical arguments with respect to the city of Hazor, destroyed by the Israelites during the conquest, showing that various theories concerning the dating and destruction require correction and the Bible's chronology and historical content is trustworthy.
2. Is the NT the Word of God? by Jared Compton, a PhD candidate in NT studies at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. Jared answers four basic questions: Can we trust our translations? Can we trust the Canon? Can we trust the Apostles? Can we trust Jesus? The answer to all four is a resounding 'YES'!
3. Turning the Cannons on NT Canon Criticisms by ABR Director of Development, Henry Smith. This article is the first in a series dealing with the issue of NT canon, a popular topic today. Foundational to our understanding of canon is OT structure and development, something almost totally ignored by modern day canon studies.
4. David: Man or Myth? by Mike Caba, outlines the major evidences found outside the Bible in the archaeological record that confirm the historicity of this momentous figure in the history of redemption.
