#51: A Capital in Jerusalem—And Just How Ancient are the Biblical Writings?

Aired Sunday, December 10, 2017   ·   10:00 AM CST   ·   34 minutes

It is a massive debate between the biblical minimalists and traditionalists. Just when was the Bible written? On the one hand, there are those that claim it was written just when it says—the traditionalists; and on the other, there are the those who claim it was written hundreds, if not a thousand years, later—the minimalists. Can we know?

On today’s program, guest host Christopher Eames finishes his series examining that question, in light of archaeological and textual evidence, with the third division of the Hebrew Bible—the Writings. He also discusses the rationale and significance behind the recent landmark US acceptance of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
