Can we get an original Bible in the house?

April 25, 2013

“The” Bible is the assembled canon of ancient books agreed upon to be considered “the” Bible only centuries after the time of Jesus and the Apostles. 

I think it may have been only in 325 AD that “the” Bible was invented by cobbling together the Hebrew Torah and the Writings and the Prophets and the Psalms and the New Testament, and throwing into the dumpster all the other books which the assembled bishops decided didn’t make the cut. 

Then they were able to announce – ta da! – behold, this is the Bible and yea I say unto thee that it is holy and thou hadst better not argue with us lest we have thee excommunicated.

All this was well before the Holy Qu’ran was compiled, so there is no reason why the Christians should pay any mind to it.

In those days they did not know about ancient scriptures from Babylon, Egypt, etc., so they can be excused for thinking wow, these Ten Commandments are really, really important, because they had never seen the Negative Confession of the Scribe Nepsani or the Code of Hammurabi so they could not guess how much of the Bible teaching is a knockoff of older documents.

They imagined that the Great Flood story was original because they had no knowledge of the Epic of Gilgamesh. 

They thought the story of Moses was true because they had no way of recognizing that it is just the retold story of Sargon of Akkadia. 

They did not see that the Book of Job may have been a Greek Tragedy.

So there is no such thing as “the original Bible in its original language.”  There is just a whole array of stories and ideas drawn from many sources.

    Say ye: “We believe in Allah, and the revelation given to us, and to Abraham, Isma’il, Isaac, Jacob, and the Tribes, and that given to Moses and Jesus, and that given to (all) prophets from their Lord: We make no difference between one and another of them: And we bow to Allah (in Islam).”” [2:135-136]

    “Without doubt, among men, the nearest of kin to Abraham, are those who follow him, as are also this Prophet and those who believe: And Allah is the Protector of those who have faith.” [3:68]

    “Say: “We believe in Allah, and in what has been revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham, Isma’il, Isaac, Jacob, and the Tribes, and in (the Books) given to Moses, Jesus, and the prophets, from their Lord: We make no distinction between one and another among them, and to Allah do we bow our will (in Islam).”” [3:84]
