No problems, some stuff on the web about older texts than in the Bible:
Babylonian Enuma Elish - http://www.mindspring.com/~mysticgryphon/enuma.htm
(thought by many to be the basis of the Genesis creation myths)
Sumerian Epic of Gilgamesh -
http://www.ancienttexts.org/library/mesopotamian/gilgamesh/ (the oldest
instance of a flood mythos, probably the basis of the flood myth in Genesis)
The Egyptian Book of the Dead - http://www.lysator.liu.se/~drokk/BoD/toc.html
Information about the Egyptian pharoh Akhenaten who introduced the earliest
recorded form of monotheism, which may have formed the basis of Judaism -
The Cretan texts haven't been fully translated and seem unlikely to offer
major works like those above, but echoes are to be found in Greek mythology
(particularly the tale of the Labyrinth and King Minos).
