ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the dates in which most of the Biblical texts were written. Texts within the Bible were dated according to their implicit references to externally datable events. Others were dated through theology or their attitude towards the cult as determined by a chronological scale based on Enlightenment notions about the evolution of religion in general. Biblical scholars also found that the books from Samuel through Kings were representative of typical Classical Biblical Hebrew of the First Temple, and used them to describe its lexicon and grammar.
