Mr.Vishal Mangalwadi. The Bible- All Tales of Book are Lies says Archaeology.

OLD TESTAMENT Has 3 Branches- Torah(Law), Nabiyam (Prophets) and Ketubim(Writings)- using the first letters Hebrew Bible is named TANAKH.

Jesus the hero of Gospel tales refers only Law and Prophets several times; i.e., Writing portion of Collections (include Daniel etc.,) were not part of OT Canon .

  Bible As Literature, Oxford University Press, written by 3 Professors John.A.Gabel, Charles B.Wheelr and Antony.D.York. How was Hebrews living during OT times.
//The small Corner of the Eastern Mediterranean, we have to keep reminding ourselves that it take up only Lower Third of that coast- particularly speaking was the Whole World to them.// Page-77

With Just a Few Exceptions, No Canaanite Or Israelite City before the Roman Period occupied more area than that of an American University Football Stadium, most Villages were hardly bigger than the Playing Field itself. King’ David’s Jerusalem is estimated to have measured about 300 x 1300 foot. Inside the City-walls houses would be crammed together according to no particular pattern, leaving room for Passages but not for Streets. Before the Greek Period there were no Public Building of the Kind that we take for granted, provided by the Municipal Government. Pages- 87,88 Bible As Literature

Foreign Countries appear in the OT only as Military Allies or Enemies of the Israelite or as the Habitat of Alien Gods; otherwise, not a Slightest interest is shown in them. Page-77 The Best Opportunity for Economic Development, it might seem was One they never took; Commerce by Sea with Mediterranean always at their door, the Israelites stubbornly remained a Land Locked People. They were effectively Shut off from the Coast at first by the Philistines, but the warfare between the two, more had to do with the Philistines attempt to expand toward the east than with any desire of the Israelite to gain access to Sea. Although the Palestinian Coast has no natural Harbors south of Carmel, this need not have been a Permanent Obstacle. The Israelites were Content to Let others – Phoenicians and Egyptians conduct their Merchant Shipping for them, almost as though they Believed the Covenant Language in its Narrowest Sense as a Promise of Land and Nothing Further. It is clear from their writings in the OT THAT THE SEA WAS ALWAYS to them, had no significant part to Play in their Thought. Pages 86-87.

 New Catholic Encyclopedia Vol-5 page-745 “Mention of the Red Sea in the Exodus context is a misnomer to be attributed to early Septuaginal editor. One has to glance at any map to see the complete lack of relevance the Red sea has to the entire narrative of Exodus. The Hebrew term Yamsup signifies Reed sea. ” New Catholic Encyclopedia Vol-5 page-745
