"...no new scientific revelation in the Bible."

"....there is no new scientific revelation in the Bible. By this we mean that no statements in the Bible offered the original audience new insight into how the material world regularly works or how the naturalistic cause-and-effect system operates. We need to affirm this both in terms of hermeneutical theory and in terms of what we actually find in the Bible."

-John H. Walton and D. Brent Sandy, The Lost World of Scripture: Ancient Literary Culture and Biblical Authority, p. 51.
