This book gives you the complete text of the very first Bible ever written, the very fountain head of your own religion, and it is an eye-opener. This Bible wasn’t discovered in some cave but its uncovering is much like an archeological find. It was found buried between the pages of today’s Old Testament or Hebrew Bible/Torah, like the one in modern English you happen to have at home. What happened is remarkable.

The alphabet had been invented by the Phoenicians a few centuries before the time somebody decided to record in writing, for the first time, the beliefs of the Jewish people that had been orally transmitted from generation to generation for the better part of a thousand years. That person was Tamar, the daughter of King David who lived about 1000 BCE, and thus the name Tamar Bible. The identification of Tamar was covered in the author’s book “TAMAR, First Author of the Bible,” now revised and updated in a 2nd edition.

Jewish priests added to the Tamar Bible, taking care not to delete anything from that sacred Scripture. Sometimes the priests added a word here and there, and sometimes they added sentences, paragraphs or full chapters. Their additions were voluminous, burying the Tamar Bible in what has come down to us today as the Hebrew Bible and Old Testament and translated into modern English.

This book tells how the text of the Tamar Bible was excavated and it presents that text, word by word (in English translation). In excavating the text, not a single word was added or changed, and the order of words wasn’t changed. Thus, the Tamar Bible was just lifted out of your Bible and it is perfectly recognizable, fully coherent, and very readable -- proving that it was buried there and confirming that nothing had been deleted by the priests.

This book also describes the extraction methodology and provides some commentary that that is fascinating to follow, not as a complicated biblical puzzle but as a learning path through the Bible. Because the Tamar Bible was the first written Bible, it necessarily presents the original beliefs of the ancient Jewish people (or as close to them as we are likely to ever come), and those beliefs became the core of the Judeo-Christian tradition we know today. For the first time, we have a starting point that enables us to make out how the religion changed over the centuries.

Using this book as the starting point and comparing it to today’s Bible leads to the identification of a host of significant changes. For instance, in the Tamar Bible the Egyptians weren’t killed, plundered or plagued when the Jewish people exited Egypt, a matter that could have political significance today as biblical portrayals had in the past.

The original Judaism of the Tamar Bible is very different than the Judaism of today’s Bible. The original Judaism was a religion that had no restraints on personal freedom and the exercise of one’s free will: there were no laws of Moses, no circumcision, no dietary restrictions, no exclusivity, and no sacrifices, offerings, tithes or rituals. It was a religion where a non-violent God lovingly watched over His people and asked for nothing in return, made no demands and issued no commandments.

Uncovering the buried Tamar Bible is a significant find, just as discovering it in a cave would have been. The uncovering of the Tamar Bible in full detail is news, significant news, as meaningful as an archeological find. It is also a find that will enhance religious understanding and faith in all the Abrahamic religions, making the Tamar Bible must reading for Jews, Christians and Muslims alike.

About the Author:

Walter Lamp earned a Doctorate in Jurisprudence from the Yale Law School. He applies the same scrutiny to religious texts as he does to legal documents. A student of both the Bible (Old Testament and Hebrew Bible) and the Muslim Koran, he has written six books on Scripture. He lays out in plain and simple language what the Scripture literally says and only that. Not having a political or religious agenda, he shuns all so-called "interpretation" and speaks only to the plain words of the Scripture that is at the core of the religion. His books are unbiased guides, as a legal scholar would write. Lamp takes nothing for granted about a reader's religious knowledge or lack thereof. His books are easy to read in spite of their serious subject matter. Every term and quote is explained with clear citations to its place in the Scripture so that readers might check it out or read further in the Scripture they happen to have at home. His books are lighthearted in tone, like going on a romp through the Scripture, and you'll wind up being much more knowledgeable about your religion and your Scripture.
