Subject: RE: Test Your Knowledge of the Bible
I think it's important to realize that the books of the Bible were written without the baggage of being "Bible." They were the best efforts of the writers to tell the story as they understood it. As time went on, they were generally accepted as descriptive of what people believed, and then were accepted into the "canon" of Scripture.
The books of the Bible weren't written with intention of being authoritative - they just were, what they were.
