The World s Oldest Alphabet

For close to 150 years, scholars have attempted to identify the language of the world's oldest alphabetic script and to translate the inscriptions that use it, which were found in the Sinai Peninsula and date from 1842 to 1446 BCE. Until now, scholars have accomplished little more than identifying most of the pictographic letters and translating a few of the Semitic words. In The World's Oldest Alphabet, however, Douglas Petrovich presents a thorough, detailed defense of his bold new claims concerning these writings. Petrovich claims to have resolved all of the disputed letters and to have identified the language as Hebrew, which allows him to translate all of the inscriptions. Furthermore, he argues that they explicitly name three biblical figures and greatly illuminate the earliest Israelite history in a way that nothing else has, apart from the Bible.

Die Schrift gehört zu den ältesten Kulturtechniken der Menschheit. Die Herausforderung an die Gedächtnisleistung in Kulturen ohne Schrift wird mit der Entwicklung von Schrift abgelöst durch neue, revolutionäre Möglichkeiten, Wissen zu speichern und weiterzugeben. Aber wer entwickelt, wer nutzt diese neuen Möglichkeiten? Welche Funktion erfüllt die Schrift und wie verändert sie das Zusammenleben der Menschen? Ob Wortschreibung oder Lautschrift, Harald Haarmann schildert knapp und anschaulich, welche unterschiedlichen Schriftsysteme sich seit den ersten bildlichen Vorstufen vor 7 000 Jahren entwickelt haben und wie unser Alphabet entstanden ist. Dabei bietet er einen faszinierenden Einblick in die Kulturgeschichte der Menschheit und das Leben in längst untergegangenen Hochkulturen.

Reading the Bible in the 21st Century

Author: Roy Hanu Hart
Publisher: FriesenPress
ISBN: 9781525535536
Release Date: 2018-12-21
Genre: Religion

"Reading the Bible in the 21st Century" (RTB) is meant for readers who are prepared to read the Bible with 21st-century acuity. In order to understand Abraham, Moses, Jonah, Jesus and the many other familiar biblical figures, you have to be able to place yourself in their time and know where they are, that is, where the action is taking place. This is what RTB addresses. In addition, the characters encountered in the Bible do not do their thinking the way we do, strange as that may seem. RTB explains the archaic mind as modern psychologists, such as Julian Jaynes, have come to understand it.

Bisher diente biblische Archäologie zum Beweis der Heiligen Schrift. Die beiden international renommierten Archäologen drehen den Spieß um und lassen die Ausgrabungen eine eigene Sprache sprechen. Ihr dramatisch neues, archäologisch fundiertes Bild von der Geschichte Israels zwingt zum Umdenken. Der Auszug aus Ägypten, die Einnahme Kanaans, das Großreich unter König David und der Tempelbau in Jerusalem unter König Salomon galten lange auch bei den kritischsten Wissenschaftlern als gesichert. Neueste Ausgrabungen, bisher nur Experten bekannt, zeigen ein ganz anderes Bild: " Den Auszug aus Ägypten gab es ebensowenig wie eine "Landnahme". " Jerusalem unter David und Salomon war ein größeres Dorf sicher ohne zentralen Tempel und großen Palast. " Der Monotheismus hat sich viel später entwickelt als bisher angenommen & Das klar und anschaulich geschriebene Buch ist in zwölf Kapitel gegliedert: Auf die Nacherzählung der biblischen Geschichte folgt jeweils die archäologische Spurensuche. Im nächsten Schritt rekonstruieren die Autoren (Israel Finkelstein ist der Direktor des israelischen Instituts Tel Aviv) den tatsächlichen historischen Ablauf, um abschließend zu fragen, wann und warum die Geschichte aufgeschrieben wurde.
