Contrary to the contentions of Wellhausen, who maintained, against archaeological evidence already available in his day, that writing did not appear among the Hebrews until the early monarchy; they had the means of producing written records at their disposal from very early times.
Moses who is credited with writing the Torah (Five books of Moses; Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy) was educated in the house of Pharaoh, he would have been literate not only in Egyptian but the surrounding cultures in his day.
In the book of Job, dated to the Patriarchal period (2100-1800 B.C.) before the time of Moses, Job refers to writing and the material on which one writes. Writing with an Iron pen upon stone and lead is clearly described; lead a soft material could be inscribed with an Iron stylus. Soft Clay was also a material used to write upon, preserving the words of the writer.
"Oh, that my words were written! Oh, that they were inscribed in a book! That they were engraved on a rock With an iron pen and lead, forever! Job 19:23-24
well now. I'll tell ya what. Moses was indeed in Egypt and was a very important figure, so I would say he may have been privy to the writing. The problem I find is that it was in heiroglyph(picture writing) with little or no script to enunciate at the time. Phrases such as you have shown were never rendered, even in the times the Greeks studied in Egypt(much later).
In all fairness, they may have been scripted in "proto-Semetic" such as was found in Ebla(in clay). If that were the case, there should be some remnant of those writings. So far there are none.
We shall see. I would be as excited as you if there was some found evidence..as there could be some tangible evidence to that part of history.

The Word of God is not accepted on evidence....it is based on belief..

You have the God given right to reject His Word...when you find evidence that any Word in the Bible is provable in a Court of Law...let me know...

Ok OX. You asked for it.

My people are ancient. I mean thousands of years. The "blood/cut" I was speaking of is that they are different. The blood is not red when exposed to the air-it is blue. We are different, we were/are hunted.
Yes-we are Pagan(heathen)(according to the "Abrahamic" followers). My mother, I and my siblings are red blood. We are intermingled, as are what is left of my cousins. We are highly intelligent, and extremely fast healing, but we are disappearing fast. As far as I know, all contact has been lost with any others of our blood (about 40 years ago).

You wanted to know.

Now you know.

You have posted lies....and posted lies...you have said over and over "Christ is God " God is Christ"...you have been shown, from Scripture, your Catholic Encyclopedia, your pope approved NABre over and over that you are lying...and you continue lying....
That's my faith. I don't say you guys lie just because you believe in certain aspects of Christianity. I say you lie because you knowingly post slander to falsely accuse us. I also believe you lie because you sometimes manipulate sacred scripture to mean something else that you could not possibly really subscribe too.
Example:'Christ is not God'. I don't believe for a second you really think that Ox. I think you're just playing around with Holy Scripture to taunt us. You couldn't be a Christian and go against God like that ..

Hey, by all means if you choose to believe Christ wanted us to go by our own interpretations in Bible Alone, than have at it. I would think you'd need to provide some scripture where He commands it, but oh well.

You conveniently forget: "... some of you will still be alive..."

In the Bible today, up means down, and right means left.

With that kind of twist and turn, anything in the Bible can mean anything you want it to mean.

If Jesus said "soon" but really meant 2000++ years, then how do we know what Jesus really meant about anything?

Well said Marge but they won't get it without explanation.
II Peter 3:8, "But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day."
Glad to help and God bless you.
So how do we trust any timeline in the Bible?

http://lightningfingers.tripod.com/theyearsin...

Do you believe that Adam lived 930 years and that Methuselah lived 969 years? Or should that be 930 thousand years maybe?

Well, here's a verse in Genesis that most people should have little or no problem with:

"Then the Lord said, "My Spirit will not contend with man forever, for he is mortal; his days will be a hundred and twenty years." (Gen. 6:3)

If we can accept 120 years as a logical maximum lifespan in Genesis 6
...then do you think they would have used a completely DIFFERENT measurement for years in Genesis 5 (just ONE CHAPTER before), when it says, "Altogether, Methuselah lived 969 years, and then he died" (Gen. 5:27)?

(Not to mention the long years of everyone else mentioned in Genesis 5!)

Do you think that in Chapter 5, years did not really mean years, as we know them today, but in Chapter 6 they DID?

How delusional is that? No, you just make up new "facts" as you go to explain the silliness. But in doing so, you destroy other Bible "facts."

Sure, sure, sure. All of mankind's gods throughout history are imaginary ... except yours of course.

If one Bible year = 1000 years, how long is 40 days and nights?

About 80 years maybe?
