The Nabonidus Chronicle

In Daniel 5 there’s a king of Babylon mentioned named Belshazzar. Historians had a record of all the kings of Babylon through history but Belshazzar was never mentioned. So, fairly, many concluded that the Bible had it wrong. Until 1956; archeologists discovered the inscription.

The Nabonidus Chronicle says that said that the King of Babylon (Nabonidus) had decided to join his troops in a distant battle. Before he left, he took his son Belshazzar and put him on the throne as king while he was absent.

“It may be categorically stated that no archaeological discovery has ever controverted a biblical reference.”
