How the Bible Became the Bible Lecture 6 10 20 2016

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 sixth and final lecture looks at Israelite and non-Israelite archaeological sources which provide background and perspective on ancient Israel and its origin.
