Looking at many other early writings for instance those in Babylon, Persia, Egypt and other early civilizations are composed of sheer nonsense and primitive superstition. The reason for the Bible's greatness lies in its unique authorship... It openly claims that each author wrote only as he was moved by the one divine author, the holy sprit. The Bible can be trusted in its history as well as its moral & spiritual teaching.The historical accuracy of the New & Old Testaments has been confirmed again & again by modern archeology.If this is true, it would be the oldest fragment of the New Testament known to exist.Up until now, no one has discovered any first-century manuscripts of the New Testament. In order for carbon dating to be accurate, we must know what the ratio of carbon-12 to carbon-14 was in the environment in which our specimen lived during its lifetime.
There was a time in educated circles that it was considered a mark of ignorance to believe the Biblical record.Voltaire died in 1778, but since that time the world has been flooded with millions upon millions of printed copies of the Bible in hundreds of languages and dialects.Even though it is an Ancient Book, the Bible remains up -to-date and completely relevant for us today. It has survived the examination of critics, it is truly the world's greatest book! "All scripture is given by the inspiration of God and is profitable..." (II Timothy )Of course the Bible does include the writings of many different men spanning across time.While Ben-Yosef and Sapir-Hen located camel bones that predated the 10th century, they believe that those belonged to wild animals from the Neolithic period or earlier.The archeologists said that the introduction of domesticated animals into the area ushered in dramatic changes to the local copper mining operation.
