How do we know the Old Testament books are historically reliable.
There are many liberal scholars that would say that many of the Old Testament prophecies were written after the event that was prophecied took place. I am trying to come to grips with the reality of the Old Testament prophecies and believe so to speak, but this is just something that I have to know. What proof is…
They’re spiritual scripture . . . not historical documents. They are not reliable from a historian’s point of view.For instance, “historically” speaking, Moses was supposed to have written the first 5 books (Pentateuch) of the Bible, which includes the Torah (“the law”). But we now know that these books were actually written by 4 anonymous authors — each with his own style and approach. The books of the Torah are composed of diverse source materials that were then edited together by the 4 anonymous authors.As for the books of the prophets, they represent the poems, prophecies, and thoughts of those prophets but it’s not always clear whether a particular book was written by the prophet himself or by one of his disciples. A common view among scholars is that, in most cases, the original work was revised and reorganized later, before inclusion in the Bible.Crisis seems to precede the appearance of most prophets. Their messages were directed at their contemporaries and focused on religious truth, and renewal more than on predicting the future.Prophecies often help in dating specific prophetic books. If a prophet mentions a historical even in the present tense, it’s pretty easy to know the year of authorship. If he speaks in the future tense about a historical event, then the date is either earlier than that event or it may show that authorship was after the event, but backdated — depending on other evidence.Scholars tend to discount prophecy. Certain prophetic references, such as the succession of kings, is deemed to be post-dated. In addition to obvious internal evidence, scholars base their dating on linguistic analyses of the words and their style; as well as on comparisons to archaeological findings.Several professors of archeology claim that many stories in the Old Testament, including important chronicles about Abraham, Moses, Solomon, and others, were actually made up for the first time by scribes hired by King Josiah (seventh century BC). As far as archeologists can tell, neighboring countries that kept many written records, such as Egypt and Assyria, have no writings about the stories of the Bible or its main characters before 650 BC. This is pretty good corroboration of the professors’ theories.Biblical Traditionalists have a vested interest in maintaining the scriptural veracity of Bible authorships and dates. However, more objective scholars and archeologists find lots of evidence which does not agree.Expat4Cebuhttp://groups.yahoo.com/group/Rational-D…:-).
which books of the bible are in the torah.
and is there more to the torah that isn’t in the bible?
The Torah is comprised of the first five books of what Christians would call the “Old Testament.” Those are Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy.There are no other books in the Torah; however, the Jewish Bible is called the Tanakh. The word is actually an acronym for Torah, Nevi’m, and Kethuvim. The Nevi’im are the various prophetic books – Joshua, Judges, Samuel, Kings, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and the twelve so-called “minor” prophets (Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadaiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachai); the Kethuvim are the “Writings” – Psalms, Proverbs, Job, Song of Songs/Song of Solomon, Ruth, Lamentations, Ecclesiastes, Esther, Daniel, Ezra/Nehemiah, and Chronicles.They are in a different order than the Christians use them (I don’t know why they changed the order – you’d have to ask them).In addition to the Tanakh, we have many other writings. The Talmud is the one that probably the most people have heard of, but very few have ever seen. Most people assume it’s a single book, when in fact it’s a very large set of books – the usual English translation runs to 70+ books about the size of old-fashioned encyclopedia volumes; you can also get it on CD-ROM (much more convenient!). The Talmud is sort of analogous to decisions of the Supreme Court on questions of the U.S. constitution. When someone wanted to know how to interpret the law in a specific instance, the opinions of various rabbis over the centuries became part of the Talmud – and different rabbis had different opinions. It was sort of a centuries-long debate that finally got written down; it’s also known as the Oral Law, even though it’s BEEN written down.There are also rabbinic writings such as the midrashim (which are sort of like parables), the Zohar, the Shulchan Aruch (literally “the set table”) – the code of Jewish law – the Pirkei Avot (“Chapters of the Fathers” or “Ethics of the Fathers”) and many others. As you might imagine, in 3000 years, a lot of words have been written and collected, so there’s a lot “out there” to read.
Why so much war in the Old Testament.
In the Old Testament there is so much war and violence sanctioned by Yahweh. Is this the same loving God portrayed in the New Testament?
Let me just answer that in the following ways.(i)The Old Testament is being written in a context where warfare and military conquest were the norms in Ancient Near Eastern society-Many of the battles recorded in the Old Testament about the wars fought by people like Moses, Joshua or David are no different from the records of other Ancient civilizations about the battles that conquerors like Rameses the Great or Alexander the Great fought in Ancient times.(ii)The Old Testament is being written in a context of the Israelites being a conquered and oppressed people-The Old Testament was written during the context of the Babylonian Exile of the southern Israelite tribes and the Assyrian exile of the Northern Israelite tribes-Because of this context of a conquered and oppressed people it’s depiction of God is one who is a warrior that fights the enemies of Israel that have oppressed them.(iii)The Old Testament also advocates peace.-People who focus on the war like passages out of context often times ignore the many times in the Old Testament where it advocates peace.-There are about 200 verses in the Bible that speak about war. 400 that speak about peace and many of the peace verses interestingly are in the Old Testament.-In passages like Isaiah 2:4/Micah 4:3 it speaks of a time when “nations will beat their weapons into ploughshares for peace and where they learn war no more”-In the Psalms the Psalmists speak of how one should “turn away from evil, seek peace and pursue it”(Psalm 34:14) and how “love and faithfulness will meet, righteousness and peace will embrace”(Psalm 85:10).-In the Book of Chronicles King David mentions how he wanted to build a temple dedicated to God but how God refused stating he was a “soldier who shed too much blood” and how the one to do it had to be a man of peace(1 Chronicles 22/28:3)So there is more to the Old Testament than it’s popular caricatures. I mean Jesus’s teachings on peace and nonviolence in the Sermon on the Mount are actually rooted in the prophetic teachings and the teachings of the Psalms that you find in the Old Testament.
How many prophets were mentioned in the bible.
How many prophets were mentioned in the bible?
There are two types of prophets, major and minor prophets:Question: “What are the Major Prophets and Minor Prophets?”Answer: The terms “Major Prophets” and “Minor Prophets” are simply a way to divide the Old Testament prophetic books. The Major Prophets are Isaiah, Jeremiah, Lamentations, Ezekiel, and Daniel. The Minor Prophets are Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi.The Major Prophets are described as “major” because their books are longer and the content is considered more important. The Minor Prophets are described as “minor” because their books are shorter (although Hosea and Zechariah are almost as long as Daniel) and the content is considered less important. That does not mean the Minor Prophets are any less inspired than the Major Prophets. It is simply a matter of God choosing to reveal more to the Major Prophets than He did to the Minor Prophets.Both the Major and Minor Prophets are usually among the least popular books of the Bible for Christians to read. This is understandable with the often unusual prophetic language and the seemingly constant warnings and condemnations recorded in the prophecies. Still, there is much valuable content to be studied in the Major and Minor Prophets. We read of Christ’s birth in Isaiah and Micah. We learn of Christ’s atoning sacrifice in Isaiah. We read of Christ’s return in Ezekiel, Daniel, and Zechariah. We learn of God’s holiness, wrath, grace, and mercy in all of the Major and Minor Prophets. For that, they are most worthy of our attention and study.
how many dreams did daniel, in the old testament, have that are recorded.
How many books are there in the New Testament.
The New Testament was written by 8 men in a period of about 50 years: Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Paul, Peter, James, and Jude.At least 4 of these men were disciples of Christ.The Bible deals with the subjects of history, biography, poetry, speeches, proverbs, songs, parables, prophecies, romances, drama, tragedies, sermons, dialog, and ethical teachings.The English Old Testament in the Greek, or Septuagint, version is divided into 4 parts: The Pentateuch, History, Poetry, and Prophecy. The Hebrew is traditionally divided into 3 parts: The Law, the Prophets, and the Psalms. Jesus so referred to it in Luke 24:44.The New Testament has 3 main parts: history (the 4 Gospels and Acts), doctrine (in the Epistles), and prophecy (Revelation).The New Testament may also be grouped into 4 Gospels, one book of history, 21 letters to churches and individuals—or 14 Epistles of Paul and 7 General Epistles—and one prophetic book.That is 27 in all . . .
