“Why are so many loath to accept that the Scriptures are true? It can hardly be because archaeology contradicts it, for most of what the spade has dug up in the Middle East for a century and a half has time and again confirmed their historical accuracy to an amazing extent. Nor can it be because the Bible is characterized by vague generalities or has a fairy- tale quality about it, for it is in all things so specific and concretely to the point. It often contains particulars that no fiction writer would ever have included, since some of them are so repetitive that the casual reader finds them boring. Such are the chapters in Exodus that tell exactly how the ancient Tabernacle had to be constructed and describe its many sacrifices. Then there are the many lists of names, names, and more names in tedious genealogies, which crop up from time to time in both the old and New Testament. No, let us candidly admit that most often the reason why people reject these books is because they blend their historicity with the actions of God and emphasize our moral responsibilities as well as the fact that each of us has a heaven to gain and a hell to shun”
(Edwin de Kock, Use and Abuse of Prophecy, 86-87)
