Dr. Robert Dick Wilson (1856-1930), a graduate of Princeton University at age 20, spent 45 years of his life making a scientific study of the Old Testament. He was one of the most brilliant language and Bible scholars of all times. In order to accurately understand the Bible, Dr. Wilson not only mastered Hebrew and all related languages, but was fluent in every language into which the Bible was translated up to 600 A.D.  His primary goal was to be qualified to speak with authority in matters relating to the text of the Bible. Wilson wanted to “reduce Old Testament criticism to an absolutely objective science; something that is based on evidence and not opinions.” One of the many areas he researched was the records of the 29 kings of Egypt, Israel, Moab, Damascus, Tyre, Babylon, Assyria, and Persia which are referred to in the Bible and found on monuments.

After studying documents that were up to 4,000 years old, he found that the Bible correctly named every one of these ancient kings, placed them in the correct country, and listed them in correct chronological order. No other document even comes close to the accuracy of the biblical account. Since the original names in the Old Testament frequently carried specific meanings, all that is connected with them has tremendous significance. Robert Wilson's painstaking work formed the foundation for proving the accuracy of these Old Testament passages. Dr. Wilson concluded that the Bible's perfect accuracy reflects the absolute truth of Scripture and a Mastermind as its author.
