Many aspects of the Bible have been verified by thorough investigation. Of course the Bible cannot be proven in a strict scientific sense like the Law of Gravity, and much of its historical background of course cannot be repeated. But the evidence supporting the Bible is both strong and sufficient. Such evidence can never itself 'prove' anything because, the Bible itself explains that the heart of man is the key issue. If a person has a right attitude then the promise 'seek and you will find' (Matthew 7 v7) applies.
Personally, I think one of the strongest evidences relates to the way in which the Bible describes the world that exists and in particular the nature of man. Much sin and wickedness is described. This is how things are still today. Murder and strife among men, and deception etc etc still abound today together with wars. The Bible does not gloss over or ignore human failure. Even great church leaders like Peter are shown to be human and needing rebuke. (Galatians 2) This is how it is today.
Hundreds of Bible Prophecies have been accurately fulfilled. Many were written hundreds of years prior to the events they describe. One relates specifically to our modern world and I believe to the medium of the Internet which has a massive amount of knowledge in it.
'But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end:many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.' (Daniel 12 v4) Men are also being transported 'to and fro' with great rapidity unthought of in Daniels's day.
