This Week's Quote
“The old Wellhausen-type view is ruled out by the horde of contrary facts unearthed since 1878 and 1886. We have here [in Scripture] the Canaan of the early second millennium and not of the Hebrew monarchy period, in any wise. The oft-stated claim of a ‘consensus’ that the patriarchs never existed is itself a case of self-delusion on the data presented here, and (if one may be forgiven for saying so) in fact, a ‘con-nonsense-us’!”
