François-Marie Arouet (1694 – 1778), known by his pseudonym Voltaire was a French Enlightenment writer, historian, and philosopher famous for his wit, his attacks on the established Catholic Church, and his advocacy of freedom of religion, freedom of expression, and separation of church and state. “On the Interpretation of the Old Testament” by Voltaire is unique work in which the author considers and interprets all events that might have taken place. French philosopher Voltaire said that in a hundred years from his day the Bible would have passed into the mists of history as people became more liberated and enlightened. And today a group of people known as the Jesus Seminar tell us that huge sections of the New Testament are not genuine but were concocted by writers who weaseled their own thoughts into the canon. Read his work and make your own mind of such a specific issue.
