Substantial portions of the Hebrew Bible were created by means of literal cut and paste. Patches of text from pre-biblical manuscripts were carved out and then reassembled like a collage. Idan Dershowitz shows how this surprising technique left behind telltale traces that are hiding in plain sight on the pages of every Bible.
