I am back from the trip – It was fun, but I am burnt!
As for your last comments, I have responded to them individually, for your viewing pleasure (haha)
The bible was written an estimated 30-60 years after the death of Jesus
…The earliest NT writings are probably the books of James (43-58 AD), Galations (49-52 AD) and 1 & 2 Thessalonians (50 – 54 AD). The latest NT writing could possibly be the book of Revelation (96 AD) (which is apocalyptic in genre, not historically based on Jesus earthly life)
I personally believe the book was written prior to the fall of Jerusalem in 70 AD, but that is not allowing for a worst case scenario for your argument!)
So with these dates, your initial statement is invalid!
The NT was written an estimated 16 – 69 yrs after the death and resurrection of Jesus (27 AD)
