WHAT ONE BOOK HAD THE GREATEST INFLUENCE ON THE NEW TESTAMENT?

Without the Greek Septuagint, The New Testament Might Have Been Written in Aramaic

There was one book which existed prior to the New Testament that was enormously influential in the development of the Christian Bible.  It is the Septuagint.  This book was not just “the Old Testament” – it was how the religion of the Jews was understood around the world by religious Jews during most of the so-called ‘Second Temple Period’ – for 350 years – from 280 B.C. to 70 A.D.

While Rome was politically in control of Judaea, the language used there was not Latin.  Instead, the … Read More

WHY IS THE GAP BETWEEN THE OLD AND NEW TESTAMENTS DIFFERENT FOR CHRISTIANS THAN FOR JEWS?

Most of my followers know that there is a period of over 400 years between the writings of the Old and New Testament.  In reality, it may span almost 500 years. The last Old Testament prophet was Malachi who wrote approximately circa 450-400 B.C. (and by the way, he may have been Ezra according to some scholars). The first New Testament book was written about 50 A.D., or slightly before, either by Paul, James, or John Mark.  This period is also known as the “Second Temple Period” in which numerous apocryphal and pseudepigraphal writings were written.  And, also, the story Read More

THE DISCOVERY OF THE LOST HEBREW BIBLE AND THE HIDING OF THE LOST ARK OF THE COVENANT

What does the Bible say about how close we came to losing almost all of the Old Testament? It tells us, in essence, we were down to one copy hidden in the Temple 600 years before Christ. Who found it? And what happened? And what does it say about where the Ark of the Covenant was hidden? And who hid it?  These topics are covered in brief in the following extract from my latest book, A Biography of the Christian Bible.

SHOOT THE MESSENGER! SO WHY DID I SAY THAT THE KING JAMES BIBLE (AND ALMOST ALL OLD TESTAMENTS) HAVE SOME SERIOUS FLAWS?

Summary: I’ve been called many names since I dare to assert that the King James Bible has flaws.  After all, isn’t it based on the “received text?” And doesn’t mean that it is inspired such that it is inerrant? I don’t think so. What the authors originally wrote were moved by God to compose what He wanted – inerrantly. But through the years changes were made, including the corruption of selected passages of the Old Testament by the rabbis of the second century A.D. Protestant Old Testaments, the Catholic Vulgate’s Old Testament, and the Hebrew Bible – the Biblia Hebraica, Read More
