Believe the Bible.
If you have much knowledge of the history of Biblical criticism, you know how many of the chest-thumpingly certain proclamations of its deriders now lie on the ash-heap — such as that the Hittites never existed, that Moses couldn't have written the Pentateuch because there was no alphabet in his day, and yadda yadda yadda.
My first thought when I read about the then-new Jesus Seminar was that it was cutting-edge 19th-century radical German scholarship. The Seminar thrived on the ignorance and philosophical biases of its supporters, and blithely wove historically nihilistic theories as if the previous century of archaeological discovery had never happened. (See more of my thoughts on this, here.)
In so many areas, the person who simply reads and believes the Bible may be behind the curve of the moment in society, but he is far ahead of the curve of the future. The facts always eventually swing around to affirm Biblical teaching.
So once again, a scholar in the British Museum cries out in delight when the translation of a cuneiform table hears out an almost incidental detain in the book of Jeremiah. He says, and I quote, "I think that it means that the whole of the narrative [of Jeremiah] takes on a new kind of power."
Well, no. Not really. "New" to you, maybe; but not new to the millions who have simply taken the narrative at God's Word for millennia. It just means that another discovery verifies the power with which the whole book (and the whole Book) has always spoken.
Do you want to get ahead of the curve, Doc? Believe the rest of it, now.
