On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (03/05/20), Hank talks of the Old Testament canon, saying that it was cared for by a cadre of copyists who were commissioned to the solemn task of preserving the biblical texts. When you look at the Dead Sea Scrolls, they are an enduring testimony to the reverential awe with which they engaged their sacred texts. And as demonstrated in the film Fragments of Truth, we can be absolutely certain—with the same kind of certainty as with the Old Testament—that the New Testament is the infallible repository of redemptive revelation.
Hank also answers the following questions:
- How can I explain to people that the biblical flood account is not based on the Epic of Gilgamesh?
- How did they decide when the Bible was complete? Were there any books that were omitted?
- I’ve seen people using the terms ecumenicalism and syncretism almost interchangeably; what’s your take on this?
- I vaguely remember a verse from the Old Testament about God knowing us in the womb, do you know what verse this is?
