Exaggeration?

(Ethnic Cleansing in the Bible #2)

Previous: Why did you write 'Is God a moral monster?'       Next: Cities or Citadels?

Is what the Bible says about the destruction of the Canaanites – commanded by God in the Old Testament – exaggerated for effect? This was a common way of speaking in the Ancient Near East, and everyone would have understood that it was not meant to be taken literally. There are some hints in the Bible's narrative that this is what is happening. 

Second video in the series 'Ethnic Cleansing in the Bible?' with professor Paul Copan, author of 'Is God a moral monster? Making sense of the Old Testament God.'

‘Astronomy leads us to a unique event, a universe which was created out of nothing, and delicately balanced to provide exactly the conditions required to support life. In the absence of an absurdly improbable accident, the observations of modern science seem to suggest an underlying, one might say, supernatural plan.’
- Nobel Prize-winning scientist Arno Penzias
