"Did the writing of the Bible begin as far back as the 10th century B.C.E., during the time of King David? That is four centuries earlier than Biblical scholars currently believe - but an inscription recently deciphered by a scholar at Haifa University indicates that for at least some books of the Bible, the answer may be yes." - Haaretz Forget 'deciphering'. Honest. I just wish everyone understood what we know - and do not know - about the history of religious texts. Lots of folks believe the 'bible' was handed down to that guy with the Egyptian name at the same time he received the 'ten' or is it 'eleven' commandments.? (which ever of the 'ten commandments' you wish to give priority to). This is to say that educated people, with a good knowledge of scripture, understand that there are BIG questions whether God gave it all down in one belch, a little over 100 surahs, or whatever was endorsed as true at the Nicea Council. I am always willing and eager to learn more.
