One of my readers who follows the work I do closely, has done a fine overview of the recent book, REBOOTING THE BIBLE PART 2.
I appreciate the kind words, but especially his taking the time to provide a quick recap of what the books communicates.

This book is so very important. In Rebooting the Bible Part 1, S. Douglas Woodward does a masterful job of documenting and explaining how and why the Masoretic text that is used for the Old Testament in our Bibles, was corrupted by the Rabbis at the beginning of the second century A.D. They changed the Messianic prophecies that would point to Jesus being the Messiah. They also altered the chronology of both Genesis chapters 5 and 11, so as to shorten the timeline from Adam to Abraham by almost 1400 years. They believed this would disqualify Jesus of Nazareth to be the Messiah. The Septuagint (LXX), which was created almost 400 years earlier, does not have the corruptions that were put into the Masoretic text. This is all summarized quite well in the first 2 chapters of this book, Rebooting the Bible Part 2.
Once you’ve got a hold of the fact that there is a missing 1400 years in the chronology of Genesis chapters 1 to 11, it changes so very much of this important Biblical history. The corrected chronology starts to align with the science of archeology and also Egyptology. This book casts new light on the creation of Adam and Eve, the meaning of Cain and Abel, the fall of humanity, Nimrod, Peleg and the dividing of the nations, the tower of Babel, and the flood of Noah. Wow! That’s a lot! It addresses common misconceptions that are held about this ancient history. I found Rebooting the Bible Part 2 to be very interesting, in fact fascinating. It has many pictures, graphs, tables, etc. that really help in telling this so very important story. There is a ton of detail here, but Doug Woodward has a way of presenting this important information in a very easy to understand way. If you are a truth seeker, get this book. You won’t be disappointed!
