Nobody may forget that in whatever language the Bible is inspired by God and as such protected by God's Power so that it can be useful for every person on earth for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, in such a way that the person dedicated to God may be capable and equipped for every good work.
The Bible never had the intention to be a day-to day factual record of historical events. Biblical archaeology as a historical discipline can contribute to our understanding of Bible history, though we may find lots of people who do not want to make use of those new scientific and archaeological findings and keep claiming that their English King James Bible is the only true and right bible in the world, as if God would only have privileged the English speaking people to come to know His Word..
