O. T. Figure Named on 2600-yr. old Tablet

THE British Museum yesterday hailed a discovery within a clay tablet in its collection as a breakthrough for biblical archeology - proof of the accuracy of the Old Testament.

The cuneiform inscription in a tablet dating from 595BC has been deciphered for the first time - revealing a reference to an official at the court of Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, that proves the historical existence of a figure mentioned in the Book of Jeremiah.
While my initial reaction was "Wow, how cool is that !" I almost forgot how utterly possible this is for God. He is way cooler than I think.

No archaeological discovery has ever proven the bible to be untrue.
