The Bible For Dummies
A Final Testament
The Greek word biblion means “book” or “collection of writings”.
The biblion called the “Bible” is a collection of scrolls.
They say the scrolls were written between 1400 BC and 100 AD.
They say the scrolls were written in the main by scribes and seers of
the Jewish nation, but four scrolls were written by non-Jews.
The Jewish nation is said to have come from Abraham and Sarah.
They were a couple of Chaldean drop-outs.
They lived a couple of thousand years before the birth of their most
famous descendant, the man from Nazareth, Jesus Christ.
Remove the first eleven chapters of the Bible, and what’s left is the
two thousand years of Hebrew history from Abraham to the ruin of the
nation peopled by his offspring in 70 AD.
Hebrews who survived were scattered into all nations.
It’s possible, though not certain, the writings began somewhere near
the five hundredth anniversary of Abraham’s death.
It’s also possible that written reports of Hebrew history didn’t show
up until one hundred or more years later, but what’s a century to people
living in the 21st century, four thousand years after Abraham died?
If written reports did begin five hundred years after Abraham died,
it would’ve been about the time Jews were released
