One of the questions I (Jeff) often get is “How do I know the Bible is true?” While there is an element of faith in believing, there is also a lot of archeological evidence that shows the stories recorded in the Bible are true. Here’s one story from Relevant Magazine:

This is a crazy story. Archaeologists in Israel were recently digging at the site of the ancient city of Tel Lachish located in the Kingdom of Judah. There, they uncovered what is believed to be a 2,700-year-old toilet like one actually described in the Bible. Seriously.

The toilet was found in a room of a multi-chambered gate, that may have once been a shrine. Nearby, were small altars to cult figures which appeared to have been intentionally damaged: their “horned corners had been smashed.” According to The Times of Israel, it looks like ancient Israelite rulers installed a toilet in the alter room as a way of desecrating idols to false gods. As it turns out, this exact scenario is mentioned in the Old Testament. 2 Kings 10:27 says that Israelite forces had previously “demolished the sacred stone of Baal and tore down the temple of Baal, and people have used it for a latrine to this day.”
