For those not yet acquainted with this gentleman’s work, introducing the real Indiana Jones: amateur biblical archaeologist Ron Wyatt (June 1933–August 1999).
While Mr. Wyatt’s findings are in my estimation indefensible on every front, I believe I was personally led to this outreach for another far more important reason: attitude.
Little did I know when a friend of my mother first handed me a videotape entitled Ron Wyatt Discoveries back in the early 1990’s, that the discoveries unearthed would hit so close to home.
What I found alongside the many excellent and irrefutable archaeological findings, was one of the most sincere and gentle examples of a man anyone could hope to stumble upon.
As a new student of Scripture, I realized I had much to learn and much to grow into. Not much has changed today, and I’m forever thankful for testimonies and examples such as these. My hope is that you’ll be as equally encouraged as well.
But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence.
But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.
1 Corinthians 27-31
