Fifteen seasons of excavation at an enormous archaeological site in the Jordan River Valley have yielded remarkable evidence of an ancient city-destroying cataclysm. Could this be proof of the biblical story of Sodom? What does it mean for us today?
Is the biblical story of Sodom real or only a fanciful myth? When we examine the biblical evidence, it reveals a consistent story about a specific location—one that may prove to be ancient Sodom itself.
Sodom and its neighboring city of Gomorrah have long been seen as examples of God’s judgment on degeneracy and evil. With what could prove to be the discovery of ancient Sodom and evidence of its fiery destruction as described in the Bible, we should ask a key question: Are we returning to Sodom?
The pattern we see again and again in the Bible is that God sends a warning message before destruction. He doesn’t want to see mankind suffer; He wants us to repent of our sins—to change direction and seek Him.
