    If the Hebrew Bible is viewed as a work of literature, and not as a historical narrative, then the import of its stories and moral allegories can be appreciated. Genesis is the first book of the Hebrew Bible, but was added later than the other books of the Pentateuch. This segment of lecture 6 deals with Yahweh's demand that Abraham sacrifice his only son, Isaac, and compares Abraham's compliance with his pleas on behalf of the people of Sodom. Nowhere in the Hebrew Bible is homosexuality associated with the destruction of Sodom -- that is a much later addition within two books of the Christian New Testament.

    No volcanoes have been active close to the Dead Sea in the biblical time frame.

    Close to Israel, only Mt. Avital, in the Golan Heights in Syria, might have been active within the last 10,000 years.

    Mt Ararat in Turkey erupted around 2450 BCE.

    Damavand in Iran erupted in about 5350 BCE.
