Bible written and compiled by NON-PROTESTANTS

This thread could lighten up the tone.

OK. So it should be read like on of those "National Inquirer" headlines. Lots of drama!

"Bible written and compiled by NON-PROTESTANTS!!!"

Eveyone goes, "HUUUUUHHHHHH!!! OOOOOOHHH!!!"

But we all know it is obvious because there were no Protestants alive and there would not be for ___________ years (that's the trivia question--two points).

Basic thought:

Does modern Protestant thought, in and of itself, contain assumptions that are 'alien' to that of the Biblical authors and compilers?

Put another way, are we predisposed to misunderstanding scripture because of our more recent and 'reactive' theological tradition ?

1) IF NOT...INDICATE WHY.
2) IF SO...WHAT ARE THEY AND HOW DO WE ADDRESS THEM?

I know it sounds 'odd.' But I wonder what people think.

To narrow the scope we can focus on NT era as a contrasting era of authors and compilers. (ie: "...the New Testament is hidden in the Old Testament and the Old Testament is revealed in the New Testament...").

PS-Got to have the word 'alien' in all National Inquirer headline.

Great points so far by thewill
