Hey Sal thanks, very interesting. I just skimmed through the article. It certainly is an imaginative read if nothing else. As an analogy I think it is great but as to its theological weight? I doubt it. 😀

Here is an interesting verse for his collection. ‘6For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.’ 2 Corinthians 4:6

Can we understand the Bible better than they could back then?

This is also an interesting question. As it relates to fulfill prophesies that certainly is true, e.g. Daniel’s coming Medo-Persian, Greek and Roman empires. It is also true for thing related to sciences such as reproducing after its own kind. For homiletic exposition are more difficult even after we discover the historical and culture context of a passage. It is often difficult to capture the flavor of the exposition.
