Prof. Lemche and historical sources
Interesting colloquium with Niels Peter Lemche these days on the biblical-studies Yahoo! group. The first question deals with historicity of the biblical text. NPL indicates some questions to be asked:
- Who is the receiver of this history?
- Why was it written?
- And of course, by whom?
- And how did they write history in ancient times?
