Abstract

The extent to which biblical authors convey accurate scientific information about their world has been a topic of discussion from the first encounters between Greco-Roman authors and their Jewish and Christian counterparts. This article concentrates on: 1) the attitudes toward empirical observation and logical reasoning used by biblical authors in constructing their world view in an ANE context; and 2) the role of the Bible in discussions about science from antiquity to the present.
