Digging Into the Documents and the Attempted Hijacking of Paradise 9/26/2015 - by Paul Ferguson PhD

Traditional liberal scholarship claims that the book of Genesis is a jumble of conflicting, contradictory sources. Genesis 1, they say, was written during the exile in Babylon by priests (ca. 586 BC). Genesis 2 was written sometime around the period of Solomon (ca. 950 BC). Genesis 1 was part of the "P Document" (Priesty Code) that runs through the whole book in various places. Genesis 2 belongs to the "J Document," which also goes through Genesis. It is called J because it prefers the divine name Jahweh (pronounced Yahweh).

Ezekiel 26:1-14: A Proof Text For Inerrancy or Fallibility of The Old Testament? 12/7/2009 - by Paul Ferguson PhD

This article seeks to give Ezekiel 26:1–14 a close reading. Special emphasis will be given to its literary structure and the use of metaphors. The history of Tyre will be examined in the light of archaeology and ancient records. It is our contention that when the passage is exegeted carefully and properly, these verses are excellent witnesses to the divine inspiration of the Bible. More liberal Biblical scholars, however, have seized upon these verses as a parade example of the fallibility of Biblical prophecy.
