Most people think of the Bible as single book but it is in fact a library of many books. This lecture series will follow the history of the Bible from the modern translations of today back in time to the most ancient sources that began to become the Bible. These sources will include the Dead Sea Scrolls, and other ancient authors, and archaeological finds. The Bible will be considered like an archaeological site as we peel back the layers to find its foundations. This second lecture looks at the History of the Hebrew Alphabet, the Tripartite Canon and ancient Bible translation.
