The Bible and History

The Bible from a historical perspective, includes numerous fields of study, ranging from archeology and astronomy to linguistics and methods of comparative literature. Studying the Bible may provide insight into ancient and modern culture, mythology, and morality. Scholars also examine the historical context of Bible passages, the importance ascribed to events by the authors, and the contrast between the descriptions of these events and historical evidence of their occurrence to learn information beyond the literal information presented in the Bible. Historical analysis of the Bible includes questioning the historicity of the Bible, whether the Bible is an accurate history of ancient Israel.
