Over the past three decades, archaeologists have made great strides in recovering the lost world from the Old Testament.Dozens of excavations in Egypt, Israel, Jordan and Lebanon have changed experts in understanding ancient Israel and its neighbors, as well as their vision of the Bible’s greatest tales.Yet, until now, the public has been largely unaware of these discoveries that help separate legend from historical truth.Here, at least two of archaeology specialists, bring a new light on how the Bible came into existence.They affirm, for example, that the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob never existed, that David and Solomon were not great kings, but obscure to their leaders, and that the Exodus never happened.Instead, they propose a new historical truth: the Bible was created by the people of the small, southern nation of Judah in a heroic last attempt to keep their faith alive after the disappearance of the greatest, richest people of the nation of Israel in the north.It is in this truth, not in the myths of the past, that the real value of the Bible is evident.
