About BGA

​

BGA stands for the Dutch foundation 'Bijbel, Geschiedenis en Archeologie' (in English: Bible, History and Archaeology).

​

It’s aims are to give scientific answers to Biblical criticism, especially where historical data are concerned, 

and to disseminate the information through scientific journals in the Netherlands and abroad.

​

The Bible is the true Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit. This holds equally for all historical accounts 

the Bible gives us.

​

Aims

​

The Foundation tries to achieve the aforementioned aims by:

​

    1.   Studying historical, religious and cultural relations between the people of Israel and neighbouring peoples 

           in Old and New Testament times.

​

    2.   Collecting source material for a reliable chronology of Israel's history.

​

    3.   Making texts accessible that may throw light on the backgrounds of Israel's early history.

​

    4.   Responding to (scientific) publications that are intended to throw doubt on Biblical accounts.

​

    5.   Issuing the quarterly magazine 'Bijbel, Geschiedenis en Archeologie', in Dutch.

​

    6.   Publishing articles on topical subjects within the scope of BGA on web-site, in English; editors: J.G. van der Land 

          and G.J. Doekes.

​

The Foundation bases itself on the truthfulness of the Bible, including all its historical details, as the Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit.
