Likewise many Christians have become so used to having Bibles that they have bought at a book store that they have almost no knowledge of where the present English translations of the Bible came from.The Bible comes from two main sources - Old and New Testaments - written in different languages.The Old Testament was written primarily in Hebrew, with some books written in Aramaic. The Pauline Epistles, the Gospel of Mark, the Gospel of Luke, and the book of Acts are all dated from 45-63 A. The Gospel of John and the Revelation may have been written as late as 95 A. There are over 5,600 early Greek Manuscripts of the New Testament that are still in existence.
Skeptics and liberal Christian scholars both seek to date the New Testament books as late first century or early second century writings.Scientists have found no physical evidence to support the claim that there was a massive flood that wiped out nearly all life from the face of the earth, and which would have caused substantial geological changes to the planet.What’s more, archeologists are aware of a number of ancient civilizations that survived through this period when the great flood was supposed to have occurred.In other words, if religious writings are continuously reinterpreted so that they conform to our ever deepening scientific understanding of physical reality, then of course science and religion will remain mostly out of conflict.As an illustration of Biblical interpretation adapting to science, consider Joshua -13, where the Bible says that the “sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day.” Many early Christian writers took this passage, and others, as irrefutable proof that the earth is fixed in the heavens and that it is the sun that travels around the earth.
