It is a difficult, complicated, and much-debated topic in the field of biblical studies today. For example, archaeology has provided several similar creation and flood accounts from the ancient Near East that complement the Bible’s own account. Furthermore, archaeology has helped us reconstruct and better understand Jesus’ interactions with the Jewish religious sects of his day.
