V.    TESTIMONY OF SECULAR WRITERS

    A.    Philo - Jewish philosopher
            "It was affirmed, that is, by Philo, who set forth an elaborate theory of inspiration, that every portion of every book was written under divine inspiration, and that knowledge of all matter which could not naturally be acquired by the prophets was communicated to them by direct revelation from God." (Gaussen)

    B.    Josephus - Jewish historian
            He wrote of the OT: "For we have not an innumerable multitude of books among us, disagreeing from and contradicting one another, but only 22 books, which contain the records of all the past times; which are justly believed to be divine. "
