What I find interesting is that Paul

In reply to: Ancient Tablet Ignites Debate on Messiah and Resurrection

and I and Boyarin all see the "Old Testament" as "Jewish history". Happy
Daniel Boyarin, a professor of Talmudic culture at the University of California at Berkeley, said that the stone was part of a growing body of evidence suggesting that Jesus could be best understood through a close reading of the Jewish history of his day.
?Some Christians will find it shocking ? a challenge to the uniqueness of their theology ? while others will be comforted by the idea of it being a traditional part of Judaism,? Mr. Boyarin said.


Certainly Paul was comforted, some 2000 years ago. Consequently the Law has become our tutor leading to Christ, that we might be declared righteous due to faith. But now that the faith has arrived, we are no longer under a tutor. Galatians 3:24,25. The whole chapter is relevant to your post, especially since the congregations in Galatia were mostly [later] Gentile Christians.

Thanks for the link. I'll have to learn more about this 'ink writing on stone' business. Maybe the old saying isn't just proverbial. Happy

And perhaps not the last ancient

... tablet or scroll to be discovered. The Dead Sea Scrolls had quire an impact.

And much time and discussion was spent on what was and what was not to be included in both Testaments of the Bible.

Such as :The Infancy Gospel of Thomas (00:45)

I think it is interesting that writings about the early years of jesus were rejected because they were written too late for consideration. But is it possible the rejection came about because they tell of Him being a "brat" as a youngster?
