Short Talk

The History of Israel from Samson to Solomon

Date recorded: 22 May 2020 | Speaker: Peter S. Williams | Event: ELF Workshop


Are the historical narratives of the Old Testament a bunch of myths and legends concocted by Jews writing during the Babylonian exile, as ‘sceptics’ like Richard Dawkins say? What is the evidence for the historicity of history according to the Old Testament? This talk looks at three major figures from the early history of Israel, Samson, David and Solomon.
