When a man says to me, “I don’t believe the Old Testament,” he makes no impression upon me. When he points out something there that he doesn’t believe, he makes no’ impression upon me. But if he comes to me and says, ‘I’ve got the evidence here to show that the Old Testament is wrong at this or that point’–then that’s where my work begins! I’m ready for him!
—Robert Dick Wilson (October 11, 1930, American linguist and Old Testament scholar, who devoted his life to prove the reliability of the Hebrew Bible. In his quest to determine accuracy, Wilson learned 45 languages).
