Joel M. Hoffman: The Bible's Cutting Room Floor

Did you know that the Bible with which we are familiar is not the complete story? Or that there are mistakes in the accepted version? And did you know that Jesus had a brother, James? Craig Barfoot talks to Dr. Joel M. Hoffman, author of The Bible’s Cutting Room Floor about how some theological writings were left out for political or theological reasons, others simply because of the physical restrictions of ancient bookmaking technology. At times, the compilers of the Bible skipped information that they assumed everyone knew. Some passages were even omitted by accident! The writings not included are more numerous than those that actually made it into the bible – The Bible’s Cutting Room Floor explains how the 150 Psalms are just a ‘best of’ collection.
