Rabbi david wolpe dating
To date, only a tiny fraction of archeological sites related to the Bible have been excavated.
This thin archeological record means that any conclusions are based on speculation and projection. Yet that has not stopped some archeologists from making bold assertions.
Interestingly, the Torah is unique among all ancient national literature in that it portrays its people in both victory and defeat.
When Los Angeles Times reporter Teresa Watanabe writes that "the rabbi was merely telling his flock what scholars have known for more than a decade" (emphasis added), she is revealing her anti-Biblical bias.
Archeology is a new science, and the record is far from complete. The Times writer makes other mistakes, such as reading the Biblical text without the accompanying Talmudic explanation.
