Very interesting.<quoted text>
The Bible is significantly influenced by culture (even science is), therefore an understanding of the culture from which it originated is key to understanding it.
How much exactly do you know about Jewish thought and culture??????????
I always was told by creationists that the bible was the inerrant word of god.
Now it seems to be influenced by human culture.
In order to understand the eternal truth we FIRST have to investigate Jewish thought and culture?
