The Bible compared to other ancient writings

These ancient writings can suppliment or contradict the bible but gives some world view of the ancient world. Some are in the biblical canon while others are not. Have no time to critique them yet but hope to do it one day within my 100 years of possible existence:) Some used in  biblical commentaries. Just need to be farmiliar with the scholarly world. For those who have not read through the bible before, suggest you read it first before these non authoritative texts.
