Finkelstein and Silberman note that most scholars regard the core of Deuteronomy as being the “scroll of the law” in question, and regard it as having been written not long before it was ‘found’, rather than being an ancient missing scroll as characterised in the Bible;  Deuteronomy is strikingly similar to early 7th century Assyrian vassal -treaties, in which are set out the rights and obligations of a vassal state in this case Judah to their sovereign in this case, Yahweh.

But when the Babylonian faction eventually won the Assyrian civil war, they set out to forcibly retake the former Assyrian tributaries. Dever’s review noted that the book had many strengths, notably archaeology’s potential for re-writing the history of “Ancient Israel”, but complained that it misrepresented his own views and concluded by characterizing Finkelstein as “idiosyncratic and doctrinaire”; Finkelstein’s reaction was to call Dever a “jealous academic parasite,” and the debate quickly degenerated from that point.

Judah, as a loyal Egyptian desentefrada, resisted, with disastrous consequences: Fortunately, the book bilia not achieve its goal: The Bible Unearthed begins by considering what it terms the ‘preamble’ of the Bible—the Book of Genesis —and its relationship to archaeological evidence for the context in which its narratives are set. The Book of Kings, as it stands today, seems to suggest that the religion of Israel and Judah was primarily monotheistic, with one or two wayward kings such as the Omrides who tried to introduce Canaanite polytheism, the people occasionally joining in this ‘apostasy’ from monotheism, but a close reading and the archaeological record reveals that the opposite was true.
The methodology applied by the authors is historical criticism with an emphasis on archaeology.
