DOES THE BIBLE TELL TIME? WHEN DID THE FLOOD AND THE TOWER OF BABEL OCCUR?

The following article is taken from Chapter Two of Rebooting the Bible, Part Two. The topic focuses on which ancient source supplies the correct, authentic timeline of Genesis 1-11, that tells us the biblical witness for all the great storylines of the opening chapters of the Bible. The Protestant and Catholic Bibles rely upon the conventional Jewish version, The Masoretic Text (MT). The Greek Orthodox Bible (and the Bible used by the early Church for its first 500 years) builds upon the Septuagint (LXX).  When analyzed closely, we see there are dramatic differences in the timelines for when the Flood … Read More

Why the Book of Jasher Doesn’t Get the Account of the Tower of Babel Right

ANNOUNCING:  REBOOTING THE BIBLE, PART 2, IS NOW AVAILABLE ON AMAZON.

FINALLY, the book is published and available.  For now, it’s the printed version only (Kindle is about one month, in time for the 4th of July).  The format is 8.5″ by 11″.  I had to make the difficult decision to go with a larger format.  The reason, there are over 90 photographs and charts, many with tiny details you’ll want to see.  This would only be plain to see in the larger format.  (I’ll eventually have to redo RTB-Part 1 to the same size format, when I do an … Read More

Was the Tower a Ziggurat?

This article is from the new book, Rebooting the Bible, Part 2.

I’ve missed my date to publish by today.  Too much editing to do!  But it will pay off in the end.

So allow me to treat my followers with an excerpt from the Chapter on the Tower of Babel.  I go deep into the meaning behind the Tower. In this article I introduce the notion of the Cosmic Mountain and the connection between the Tower, sacred mountains, mounds, and monuments.  The pattern is fascinating, and the meaning revealing.

Expect the book within a week!


We cannot understand the … Read More

IS GENESIS 1-11 HISTORY OR MYTH?

This article is drawn from my new book, Rebooting the Bible, Part 2.  This is cut from the Introduction and simplified a bit to focus just on the issue of why historical truth matters even in the first eleven chapters of Genesis, which is often the most likely section of Scripture to be labeled “myth.”

The revised date for the book being available is now Memorial Day weekend. May 23-25. Only the last chapter, indexes, and a couple of small appendices are left to complete.  If you haven’t read Rebooting the Bible, Part 1, I do encourage you to get
