Il Falso Testamento: Creazione, miracoli, patto d'alleanza: by Mauro Biglino

By Mauro Biglino

Che cosa ci rivelano gli studi di genetica sul racconto della creazione? Come si possono facilmente spiegare alcuni episodi di miracoli e guarigioni narrati nella Bibbia? Quali scenari si aprono se si scopre, da una traduzione attenta e letterale, che l. a. "gloria" di Dio period probabilmente una vera e propria arma fisica? Perché ci sono somiglianze così sorprendenti tra i comportamenti di Yahweh e quelli degli dei dell'era classica descritti nell'Iliade e nell'Odissea? Che cosa emerge da uno studio attento del presunto patto di alleanza tra Dio e gli uomini? E quale luce getta tutto questo sui Vangeli?

Questo libro è il nuovo sconvolgente capitolo dell'opera di rilettura che Mauro Biglino sta compiendo da anni sulle Sacre Scritture. Un cammino iniziato con le traduzioni della Bibbia compiute dallo stesso Biglino consistent with le Edizioni San Paolo e che sta suscitando l'interesse di un numero sempre crescente di persone in Italia e all'estero.

"Queste pagine proseguono il racconto di ciò che ancora non period stato evidenziato o, peggio, di ciò che è stato da sempre volutamente dimenticato – o variamente interpretato dagli esegeti-teologi – allo scopo di celarne i potenziali effetti dirompenti. Sono il frutto di un approccio multidisciplinare che spazia dalla genetica alla filologia classica, avvalendosi dell'apporto di diversi studiosi, e utilizzano una chiave di lettura che rivela una nuova visione di quella che potrebbe essere stata l. a. nostra storia. Una storia che, come appare ormai chiaro a un numero sempre crescente di ricercatori, andrà totalmente riscritta. Troppe sono le testimonianze del passato che urgono e spingono in questa direzione; troppe le domande e le incongruenze archeologiche, storiche, documentali che rimangono prive di risposte e di spiegazioni coerenti. Ho cercato di leggere los angeles Bibbia con los angeles convinzione che chi l'ha scritta intendeva raccontare ciò che aveva visto di personality o sentito narrare, con quella meraviglia e quello stupore che sono inevitabili di fronte ai contenuti che emergono. Meraviglia e stupore che hanno colpito anche me in questa ricerca che mi auguro appassionante e soprattutto a misura del lettore che si avvicini consistent with los angeles prima volta all'argomento."
