520    The ancient Israelites believed things that the writers of
       the Bible wanted them to forget: myths and legends from a 
       pre-biblical world that the new monotheist order needed to
       bury, hide, or reinterpret. Ancient Israel was rich in 
       such literary traditions before the Bible reached the 
       final form that we have today. These traditions were not 
       lost but continued, passed down through the ages. Many 
       managed to reach us in post-biblical sources: rabbinic 
       literature, Jewish Hellenistic writings, the writings of 
       the Dead Sea sect, the Aramaic, Greek, Latin, and other 
       ancient.
