WHY “THE GOSPELS WERE WRITTEN CENTURIES AFTER JESUS” IS COMPLETE NONSENSE?Sep 19th, 2016 | By Scott Sullivan
Have you ever heard someone say “The Gospels were written centuries after Jesus”?
I hear this all the time. And of course the conclusion we are supposed to draw from this claim is that therefore the Gospels cannot be trusted to give us accurate information about the life of Jesus.
But there is one small problem.
This claim is complete NONSENSE. This claim evinces a total ignorance of history.
No New Testament scholar believes this ridiculous claim, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t get asserted time and time again on the popular level.
