The Kurkh Stele was found in Diyabakir, Turkey, in 1861, by John Taylor.  It dates from the time of King Shalmaneser III of Assyria (around 850 BC). It is covered all over in cuneiform text. It mentions king Ahab of Israel, who is also recorded in the Bible (1 Kings chapters 16 to 22). Ahab was a real historical person, confirmed here by the archaeological record.

With Ian Cooper, pastor of Tollgate Evangelical Church in Reigate, UK.

‘Although I was once sharply critical of the argument to design, I have since to come to see that, when correctly formulated, this argument constitutes a persuasive case for the existence of God.’ – Professor Anthony Flew
