Archaeology News: Discovery Of Galilee Boat From Jesus' Time Proves Bible Accurate

The Bible is cherished by billions of people worldwide although not all study it as a spiritual or religious text. To some, the Bible holds a wealth of information about the ancient days of the Holy Land and its people. Tom Meyer, a professor of Bible studies at Shasta Bible College and Graduate School in California, US, believes the two are not mutually exclusive and that there is a growing body of archaeological evidence to support the Biblical narrativeOne such piece of archaeological evidence emerged in the Sea of Galilee in the late 1980s, according to the expert.

The Sea of Galilee, also known as Lake Tiberias, sits in the northeast parts of Israel between the Golan Heights and Galilee region.

Geographically, it is the lowest freshwater lake on Earth and the second-lowest lake after the Dead Sea.

Biblically, however, scripture says it has been the site of many key moments and miracles in Jesus's life.

Most famous of all, perhaps, was the scene described in the gospels of Matthew, Mark, and John where Jesus was seen walking on water.Matthew 14 states: "When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. 'It’s a ghost,' they said, and cried out in fear.

"But Jesus immediately said to them: 'Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.'"

Nearly 40 years ago, the Sea of Galilee came into the spotlight after a major drought struck Israel.

Professor Meyer told Express.co.uk: "Because of a record drought in Israel in 1985 to 1986, large portions of the bed of the Sea of Galilee were suddenly exposed to the naked eye.

"Amateur archaeologists and residents of the nearby Kibbutz Ginnosar on the northwest shore of the Sea of Galilee began to explore the newly exposed lakebed in search for any artefacts like anchors and coins that might be exposed by the drought.

"They stumbled upon an impressive discovery; the faint outline of a boat buried in the mud."Because there was a forecast of rain on the horizon, the local community came together to remove as much of the boat from the lakebed as possible.

Within the space of 11 days, the ancient wreck was excavated and moved to the nearby Yigal Allan Museum at Kibbutz Ginnosar.

Professor Meyer said: "Once they started excavating, their suspicions were confirmed; the wood’s structure was supported mainly by being immersed in the water and any evaporation would lead to its sudden destruction.

"So, the boat was shaded from sunlight during the day, and as soon as parts were exposed from the mud they were covered with wet sponges and sprayed with water until the excavation was completed.

"Then the team encased the entire boat in polyurethane to protect it while they floated it to the nearby museum."There, a conservation tank was constructed to store the boat until they could remove the polyurethane encasement and treat the boat so it could be displayed for the world to see."

Alongside the boat, the archaeologists unearthed 17 bits and pieces of ancient pottery, as well as a cooking pot and oil lamp.

Based on the boat's construction, experts have dated the discovery to between the first century BC and the late first century AD.

This was in part made possible by studying a mosaic found at the home of Mary Magdalene in Magdala.

Professor Meyer believes the mosaic, paired with the artefacts found within the boat, can "confidently be dated to have sailed the Sea of Galilee around the time of Jesus".He added: "The boat was primarily constructed of oak frames and cedar planking.

"It measures 26.5ft long, 7.5ft wide, and 4.5ft high, which would be spacious enough for 13 men (Jesus and the 12 disciples).

"'The Sea of Galilee Boat' is very likely the type of boat referred to in the Gospels in relation to Jesus's many travels and miracles around the Sea of Galilee.

"Obviously, there is no way of knowing that this particular boat played any part in these famous events, but it does allow us to better understand

Let's even leave the Galiee Boat.

The Events playing out on Earth Presently Before our Eyes Just as JESUS Christ said it would, is clear enough for anyone to know and Understand that the Holy Bible is the Word of GOD and that JESUS Christ is the Only means of Salvation.

No one on Earth today has an Excuse for not Believing in JESUS Christ as we are seeing Bible being Fulfilled Live before us.

Listen Folks,
Mary won't Save you,
Buddha won't Save you,
Mohammed won't save you,
Allah won't save you,
Dead saints won't save you,
The new age movement won't save you,
Religion won't save you,
Your works ( good things we do) won't save you

There is Only One Way through which we can be Saved.
There is Only One Name that Saves and One way to Heaven.
That way and Name is JESUS Christ .

I love that Man of Galilee
For He has done so very much for me
He has forgiven me all my sins
And sent the Holy Ghost to me
I love that Man of Galilee


Yes it's that Man of Galilee called Jesus!

It's this same Jesus that healed the sick!

It's this same Jesus that made the blind to see!

It's this same Jesus that made the lame to walk!

It this same Jesus that raised the dead!

It's this same Jesus that walked upon the sea!

It's this same Jesus whose voice the winds obeyed!

It's this same Jesus that died and resurrected from the dead on the third day!

It's this same Jesus that lives and abides forever!

It's this same Jesus that's coming back soon to take His people home as He'd promised!

But the important question is, would you be ready to meet Him in the clouds when He returns?

God bless.

I stand by Hopsin-

You gave me a Bible and expect me not to analyze it?
I’m frustrated and you provoked it
I’m not reading that motherfucking book because a human wrote it
I have a fucking brain, you should know it
You gave it to me to think to avoid every useless moment

The Spiderman comics also features New York and London. That does not make Spiderman a real figure.

The Harry Potter book as well contains some real life locations but we all agree it is fiction.


Your book may contain actual locations and objects, but that does not necessarily mean the stories and claims about the locations and objects are true.


The Bible is a book that has been edited, translated, re-edited and re-translated so many f*ckin times. It is a book filled with myths, contradictions and other sorts of superstitious nonsense. Discovering some boat out of the blue changes nothing.

Let's take a look at conradictions for example:

They won't because they think it validates their faith.

Watch how psychological bias comes into play among the so called freethinkers.
Because it doesn't fit their narrative from the same scientists they claim to believe, they will find some absurd narratives to continue in their delusion.

Yea. Only fools would doubt th bible words or God's existence. Na my Bible describe them so.

Just because many were born at the era when information and recordings became sophisticated , they tend to believe only those things seen , captured by the camera, etc as against the events which took place at the stone age. Whereas there are living things which had predated the arrival of our Lord Jesus on the earth in human body over 2k years ago and are still there till date. They can believe such things because they're still here as seen. The baobab trees in South Africa are estimated to be over 3000 years old and they still stand firm till date, Bible is so complete
