I am watching this documentary on the writing of the Bible. It's really good. I can find it free on Xfinity when I say it into the mic button on my remote. One interesting thing pointed out is that the books that are not included into the protestant Bible are not quoted by JESUS or any of the New Testament prophets even a single time. That is a strong argument of why they shouldn't be in there, but something I didn't really know yet. This documentary also talks about the Septuagint, which is a translation of the Old Testament historically proven to exist well before the time of JESUS. The documentary also talks about how the Bible leaves itself open to historical verification. An example of this is given in the beginning of Mark 2 where a paralytic man was lowered down into Pete's house and healed. A specific place is mentioned where this miracle happened. (Mark 2:1 New American Standard Bible -"When Jesus came back to Capernaum a few days later, it was heard that He was at home.") This documentary also says that there are people who believe that Peter is the source of Mark's gospel. I did not know about that belief yet.
Quote from the documentary: "If you get people to doubt the Bible then eventually you can get them to deny. They have to doubt first before they deny. Once they deny then you can get them to disobey. That has worked so well since the Garden of Eden the devil hasn't had to change his tactics, he still uses it."
Another thing I'd like to point out is that not only does the Arch of Titus historically document the Roman destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD, but also the city of Jerusalem used in one term or another is in the Bible over 800 times. I have a concordance and though I haven't counted, there is a very long list of references to find where the word Jerusalem is in the Bible. The city of Jerusalem has a long and well documented history with the nation of Israel.
