Bible Accuracy 9

Posted: October 19, 2017 in Bible Accuracy

As we read last week, the Old Testament was copied over and over by scribes.  The earliest textual evidence we
have of the Old Testament is the Dead Sea Scrolls, written between 300 BC to 70 AD.

Let’s review three books of the Old Testament; Isaiah, Psalms and Deuteronomy.  What is the differ-
ence between the actual events of these three books and the time of the Dead Sea Scrolls?

Isaiah took place around 740 BC to 686 BC.  The Dead Sea Scrolls were written between 300 BC to 70 AD, a dif-
ference of about 400 to 800 years.

Psalms (during King David’s life) took place around 1400 BC to 580 BC.  The Dead Sea Scrolls were written be-
tween 300 BC and 70 AD, a difference of about 300 to 1400 years.

Deuteronomy took place around 1400 BC.  The Dead Sea Scrolls were written between 300 BC to 70 AD, a dif-
ference of about 1100 to 1400 years.

Let’s compare the secular historic text from Bible Accuracy 7.  The difference between the actual
events to the earliest textual evidence is about 500 to 1500 years.

In comparison, the biblical historic text of Isaiah, Psalms, and Deuteronomy.  The difference between
the actual events to the earliest textual evidence of the Dead Sea Scrolls is 500 to 1400 years.

The secular text time difference and the biblical text time difference is about the same, 500 to 1500 years.  There-
fore, if we consider the secular historic text to be accurate, we must consider the biblical historic
text to be accurate.

Thank you so much for studying.  God bless.
