How Many Books Did The Apostle John Write

If there are no flaws in the bible, why do Matthew, Mark, Luke and John all differ on.

1. How many women visited Jesus tomb?2. Who were the messengers at the tomb?3. Where did Jesus appear to the 11?4. Who did Jesus first appear to?

The bible is what is called “Faction” A fictional story set in a factual time and place. Thus the time, place and real historical characters are all correct but the fictional characters and stories are not!Not one word of it is contemporary with the period and was not written until several hundred years after the period the story is set in!! How did the apostles write their books more than a hundred years after they would have been dead?

How do we know that the bible is true.

what if it was a made up story? Like how modern day authors are writing stories; mathew mark luke and john were just authors?im catholic. I start to think “How did God get here?” ok God-then jesus- then us. How did God get here? Where did he come from?i have soooooo many more questionsim 13 and…

The Roman Emperor Constantine produced the bible and he was a pagan not god!!! He also organized Christianity into the Holly Roman Catholic Church!! Not in Israel or any of the countries of supposed origin but entirely Italian!!Not one word of it is contemporary with the period and was not written until many years after the period the story is set in!! How did the apostles write their books long after they were dead?What a wonder full disinformation and deception campaign he waged against his Christian enemies – so good in fact that Christians are still following the deception to this day!!!

How many of the Epistles did the New Testament include.

The New Testament contains 22 epistles – 13 epistles written by Paul, and 9 written by others. The New Testament also contains 4 Gospels and the Acts (of the Apostles).* Historical Books – Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Acts* Pauline Epistles – Romans, 1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, 1 Thessalonians, 2 Thessalonians, 1 Timothy, 2 Timothy, Titus, Philemon* Non-Pauline Epistles – Hebrews, James, 1 Peter, 2 Peter, 1 John, 2 John, 3 John, Jude, Revelation

How could the apostles of Jesus have written the Gospels if they were ignorant.

“Unlearned and ignorant men,” according to Acts 4:13 (King James Version)

They were “unlearned and ignorant” only in the eyes of their enemies. The account shows that they are called this by the Jewish religious leaders of the time, who had been through the prestigious theological/seminaries of their time: rabbinical schools.(There are various levels of Greek to be found in the Greek Scriptures. It’s funny that some of the highest quality of Greek is to be found in the books of James and Jude – Jesus brothers.)The Apostles most probably all knew how to read and write, and probably knew Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek. They were quite capable. Jesus’ three and a half year ministry was an intense training session for the disciples. Ignoring many of the worthless things taught in the rabbinical schools, Jesus’ instruction focused on the Scriptures, preaching and teaching techniques, and how to be a better person.Likewise, Jehovah’s Witnesses are dismissed as “unlearned and ignorant” by the scribes and Pharisees of today: the religious leaders of Christendom. There are many capable men and women to be found among Jehovah’s Witnesses. Just look at the high quality of the New World Translation. Also, the Watchtower and Awake is produced by a department that contains about 70 people. They produce high quality reading materials. Last I heard, not one of them has a degree in English.

How was the Bible found.

I heard that one of the apostles John ate it. Is it true? If not, how was it found?

The book today known as “The Holy Bible” was originally not a single book. It is a collection of about 24 books written between 13th century BCE to 5th century CE. The answer isn’t accurate because some aspects of the canonization of Bible are disputed. Moreover, different sects like protestants did not include all the texts that Catholics did or the Orthodox Christians did. That’s why there are so many versions. And there’s old testament and the new testament.So the correct question would be how or when was Bible canonized?A. Since there are different versions, so no straight answer. But the early versions of Bible on which the modern versions of Bible are based were compiled between 200BCE and 200CE.For those who answered ‘Dead Sea Scrolls’. That was a rediscovery of the original texts, mainly Hebrew Bible in the modern times (mid 20th century). That doesn’t mean we didn’t have Bible before that find. It is noteworthy that the finds did add some new psalms.

JW or any Christian: What Bible Version did the Apostles use & how do we know.

I was reading the book “Bearing thorough Witness…” [well, its been a while] and i cant find the reference to the bible Version the Apostles use.In summary: I know that they quoted the Septuagint, and they quoted something out of the OT. However in the OT the same passage is written…

The Septuagint version was widely used in early christian times, however Jesus read from scrolls, the new testament wasnt completed till 98 ce.This was when 1,2,3, John and the Gospel of John was written.The scrolls were kept in the temple, this is where you will find the original texts.The bible that has been translated that is the most accurate one today is the”New World Translation Of the Holy Scriptures”The reason for this , unlike other translations the NWT publishers have gone back to the oldest available copies of the original scrolls, spread throughout the world.While other translations go back to a previous translation.

When was the last book of the Bible “Revelations” written.

When was Revelations written? And does it belong to the original Books of the Bible, or was it written much later? How valid is the book?

The apostle John himself tells that at the time of seeing these visions he had been banished to the isle of Patmos “for speaking about God and bearing witness to Jesus”(Rev.1:9)John was banished toward the end of Emperor Domitian’s reign,which ended in 96CE,right after which John was released.So quite possibly it was in that very year that John had the visions he recorded.The Book of Revelation tells of Jehovah’s judgments upon the wicked,it commends God’s servants for their endurance,relates their coming off victorious and describes the eventual destruction of all the incorrigibly wicked and the final triumph of righteousness.In many respects Revelation happily compliments the Book of Genesis.Just as Genesis 1:1 speaks of the creation of the heavens and the earth,so Revelation 21:1 speaks of a new heaven and a new earth.As Genesis Chapter 3 reveals how sin and death entered into the world,Revelation makes known the end of these.And as Genesis mentions a tree of life and a river issuing forth from Eden,so Revelation speaks symbolically of trees of life and a river of water of life issuing forth from God’s throne.It is a valid and vital book contained within the Inspired Holy Writings.

How many think that the one who wrote Revelation was not John the Apostle, read on below, if interested..

The author of the book calls himself John (Rev 1:1, 4, 9; 22:8), who because of his Christian faith has been exiled to the rocky island of Patmos, a Roman penal colony. Although he never claims to be John the apostle, whose name is attached to the fourth gospel, he was so identified by several of the early church…

Isn’t it a bit academic to worry about it now? It was accepted from very early in the piece as from The apostle John, so how can we decide at this distance whether they were right or wrong?Secondly, does it really matter which of a hundred John’s may have written it, as long as the content is correct, and you at least seem to be accepting this fact!.Regardless of which John actually wrote it, it has stood the test of time and is still not only relevant, but correct where it can be tested. That is most important isn’t it?

How do people know that the book of St. John was written after the book of Revelation.

I’ve heard it said that the book of St. John was written after John wrote Revelation. I’m just wondering how people have come to that conclusion.

IN RevelationThe apostle John names himself as the writer of the book and designates the place of writing as the island of Patmos, where John was in exile at the time for being a preacher of God’s Word and a witness of Jesus Christ. (Re 1:1, 9) The time of writing was possibly about 96 C.E.Gospel of John;It is generally thought that John had been released from exile on the island of Patmos and was in or near Ephesus, about 100 km (60 mi) from Patmos, at the time he wrote his Gospel, about 98 C.E. Roman Emperor Nerva (96-98 C.E.) recalled many who had been exiled at the close of the reign of his predecessor Domitian. John may have been among these. In the Revelation that John received on Patmos, Ephesus was one of the congregations to which he was commanded to [email protected] need to check your reference. There is no Book of Benjamin and we most certainly do not believe there is.

  1. it lines up with history.other writings tell about humans in the bible. archeology backs the bible up. science backs it up.

  2. God was the original author of Revelations !I think it is because Paul’s writings mention a man who was taken up into the 3rd Heaven and heard things he was not allowed to repeat.John was told not to write certain things.[15] But when they had commanded them to go aside out of the council, they conferred with one another,

  3. Our observation of anything is subject to our experiences. Is the glass half full or half empty? Two seemingly opposing views – which actually mean the same thing.I saw a Josh Mcdowell seminar a while back. I don’t remember all the details, but there are a few basic things that can help us know.Its called ‘dictation’ scribes if you remember the term were used since before time to ‘write’ important letters, books etc for themSome look at as a dream book. John was in a trance like state when he saw this vision or asleep. This is what God wanted John to write and tell about. Future events. His and ours.

  4. http://www.josh.org/site/c.ddKDIMNtEqG/b…The Book of Revelation was written about the year AD 95 by John while he was in exile on the Isle of Patmos. It is an original book according to the Nicene council, and in my humble opinion, despite the differences that people have concerning it’s interpretation, I find it to be very valid in that everything that is outlined in that book for the last generation (which I feel we’re living in now, but that’s another story)is readily able to be fulfilled in our eyes and our hearing. We have more knowledge in this day we live in to be able to understand the prophecies, but we have to read and study it from a first century perspective to try and understand the validity of the things John was shown in that vision. Remember, John never saw ICBM’S, computers, tanks, planes, atomic bombs and etc., yet there are several passages of Scripture in both the OT and Revelation that when read with a bit of “first century understanding” can reveal the possibility that John saw these things coming to pass and thus encoded them “accidentally on purpose” because of his lack of understanding and of God’s command that the book be “sealed” until the generation that would see the restoration of Israel would be able to understand it’s prophecies and prepare their souls.

  5. Do some research and you will find that most of the stories were stolen from pagan religions.The Apostles did not use any version of the NT, as it hadn’t been written yet.Matthew a tax collector.

  6. Suggest you divest yourself of the Roman Church and its heresies and start reading a proper non-Roman Bible.

  7. They were ignorant to hellenism as the hellenists were ignorant to the gospel of Jesus Christ.

  8. Something that awesome is not just found.Not like aliens dropped it off in the desert for humans to find.

  9. Yeah…Why don’t you try putting the WHOLE verse in there?…Rev 1:1 The Revelation (A great revealing for the end of Days ) of Jesus Christ, which “God gave unto him“, (Did you we get that? “God gave to Christ”) to shew unto his servants things (His followers) which must shortly come to pass; and he (Jesus) sent and signified (Indicated) it by his (Christ’s) angel (Did we get that? “ gave Christ’s Angel”) unto his (Christ’s) servant John: (Did we get that? It’s finally given to John !”) Verse 2 Who John bare “record”( Did we get that ? John recorded it ! It what? “ of the word of God” ! ) and of the “testimony of Jesus Christ”, and of all things that he (John) saw. (And those visions John saw were given to him by God !)[7] And when they had set them in the midst, they inquired, “By what power or by what name did you do this?”Jews have the Torah, most of which is the Old Testament in “The Bible”3. Cause you can just READ the BIBLE…. STUDYING the HOLY BIBLE shows you want the WISDOM that ONLY GOD can GIVE YOU.

  10. Yes, a given passage from the Septuagint, and one translated into English directly from the Hebrew (or Aramaic) is different. The Septuagint was not the best translation anyway, and if we translate the Septuagint into English, it has gone through an extra step that a direct translation has not. So, things are different.There is a lot of “trash talking” goes on, people speaking wild speculation as if it were fact.This is might be the seminar I saw, or something similar, but I can’t view it on my mac.

  11. But, yes, dictation is the answer…and no…the apostles themselves probably didn’t write the gospels. Neighter Luke nor Mark were apostles.

  12. I don’t think it really matters either way, so I tend to ignore such controversies. If God wanted us to know for sure, He would have had the disciples put copyright dates on the manuscripts or found some other method to let us know.

  13. God is eternal he has no beginning or end. This universe had a beginning and therefore is not eternal. Nothing in this universe can just begin out of nothing and have no purpose, its scientifically impossible. Therefore something which is eternal has to exist or nothing we know could exist.

  14. The book of Revelation was written in about 90 AD, which is about 15 years after the last Epistle (I think).

  15. Josh Mcdowell has studied this a lot. His book “Evidence that Demands a Verdict” addresses this much better than I can, as do many of his other works. Here’s some of it.

  16. 4. Which occurrence states “this was the first appearance”?The atheists websites that they promote endlessly here are full of it.

  17. To your question whether or not it belongs to the original books of the Bible, the answer is yes. This book is very valid.

  18. Do you say the same thing for the works of Plato? Do you know that there are only 7 actual texts of Plato that are at least 1000 years old? And that the oldest that they can find dates to over 1200 years after his death, do you question the authority and accuracy of them?Luke a physician.grace2u

  19. Paul’s writings were within 10-20 yrs of JESUS death burial and resurrection and before the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 A.D..Chances are he was writing of John’s experience on patmos when he wrote Revelation.

  20. Suppose a red Toyota Camry drove past. One person says, “a car went by.” Another says, “a red car drove by.” A third says, “a Toyota drove by.” According to you, for some reason, that car must never have existed and never drove down the street.

  21. The bible is, by standards I can only explain inadequately, the most historically sound document we have. More so than the works of Homer. It has to do with the dates of and number of original manuscripts. Josh McDowell can explain it a lot better than me.I ask the same question, but replace the words big bang with god.

  22. Revelation was written approximately around 95AD by John the Apostle when he was on the Isle of Patmos. It was wriiten to the early churches in Asia and to all believers everywhere.challenging question. I heard a talk on the subject some time ago, and it struck me at the time that the argument was weak. I don’t know that ‘know’ is an appropriate description.

  23. 1. Cause they are THREE different PEOPLE who WRITE things DIFFERENTLY.The first Bible found was the King James version in a whore house in New Orleans…Correction, in a whore house in Egypt

  24. John’s Gospel was written with the Logos in mind while revelation is apocalyptic writing, most likely written by different people. Also Johns gospel was more than likely written by more than one person none of which were named John, but ya never know, there could have been a John in there

  25. 600 years after the Resurrection of Jesus, Mohammad a prophet of God wrote the Quran/Koran which refers back to Jesus.Ignorance could be fatal. Read this article on why many will not understand the BibleSeems a bit selective in acceptance based on the hard facts, now doesn’t it?

  26. I once asked why MORE apostles of Jesus didn’t write any documentation of their story (knowing full well that most Christians are oblivious to the existence of the nearly 200 gospels that were not canonized by the church), and was told that they were illiterate. Hmmm. Very curious that the ones who apparently DID write the story were all rural fishermen, save Luke the doctor (who wasn’t even an apostle). Of course, we know that the synoptic gospels were not actually written by the men they are attributed to at all. But don’t try to tell the Christians here that.

  27. I’ve heard Jehovah witnesses say that to justify the book of Benjamin. It makes no sense considering that Revelation says not to add to or take away from that book and the book of John already has information of the end times in it. John had to be written first.

  28. Dude, no one but Christian fundies of various sects believes that there are no flaws in the bible, and those fundies won’t be convinced by the contradictions you mentioned, so really don’t bother.

  29. they were all jewish and followed the torah and the talmud, it was paul not jesus who said you don’t have to be a jew first to become a christian , the new testament was not written until 250 years later

  30. …It does not matter what or which language God used as God created all languages.. When God wanted to relate a message to human kind, that message came in whatever language most convenient and men wrote it down in their own language for others to read..It was written before 70 A.D. because the destruction of the temple is not mentioned. The book is very valid in that it has some 400 verses half of which are direct references to OT prophesy.

  31. [9] if we are being examined today concerning a good deed done to a cripple, by what means this man has been healed,Mark was a customs official and would have known short hand very well.You know, christians ask how an athiest can believe in the big bang just happening for no reason.The gospel of John was completed in 90AD; Revelation was completed in 95AD.The entire creation story was also stolen from the Sumerians.Well, people like Matthew, Mark, Luke, John etc were just authors elaborating on a story line made up by Paul. Sequel after sequel after sequel. You just need to realize that some parts of the bible might not be true because they were written by people. Most parts of the Bible are true. You just need to learn how to apply it’s stories to your life to become a better person. If you search hard enough, you will find G-d. I’m only 16 and I’ve found G-d. I was searching for Him too when I was your age.

  32. If you have a short attention span, skip the first five minutesSo,

  33. Noah’s Ark was stolen from the Sumerian story of gilgimesh.For a while it was in a big box in the temple in Jerusalem

  34. It was written around 90 to 95 A.D. It is one of John’s writings and it belongs to his group of writings. There is much validity to it. It is a book of mostly prophetic events most of which have not occurred as yet. Since John was the last of the twelve then it shows that there is some validity to it….The sum of this is Jesus Christ will testify if needed to all of what happened here and the visions John saw! Please understand , I am not “taking away” nor “adding to anything” . Only commenting on what actually happened in the first two verses of Revelations..What I find amazing is that there are today over 5900 hand written manuscript of the holy Bible, with the earliest copy of the New testament PROVEN to be dated to 120 AD? That is only 50 years after John wrote it. Out of those 5900 manuscripts, do you know that each and every one are exactly the same? Word for word, but some claim it is not accurate.[13]3. At which of those appearances does it say it was the only appearance?www.oneheartbeataway.org

  35. I moved the pillow, and there it was!

  36. If they are aware, how do they view these documents: When the bible was canonized, the gospel did not met the standards.. e.g. probably some heretical verses seeped in. The infant Jesus spoke right after he was born – accdg to some arabic infancy gospel, yes. Do they believe that the infant Jesus was capable of miracles? – yes, as shown in their lives while in Egypt hiding from Nero. There are coptic churches across Egypt that are still preserved as resting place of the Holy Family. e.g. church of St Sergius in downtown cairo. In summary, some heretical verses seeped in the gospel, thus was disqualified from canonicity.

  37. Ever do the exercise “whisper down the lane”? Same thing

  38. Also, from a book I used to have but can’t find, there are old testament assertions that have been proven true in the milennium.

  39. it was not found.[10] be it known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, by him this man is standing before you well.There are the same number of stars as there are grains of sand on the planet as best as we can calculate. The bible said as much in the old testament. Many other old testament statements match up to recent scientific discoveries.

  40. ca va -> it is -> es ist does not look the same at all.

  41. No one knows who orginally wrote the bible.theological affinities, they are talking about the same religion, of course they had the same ideas. There is no way those were written by the same person though

  42. Jesus, and the Apostles did quote from the Septuagint. The Bible as we know it now of course did not exist – it hadn’t even been written yet!John did not eat the Bible, he ate a little book in Revelation 10:10. The Bible was not found it wasThe only possible conclusion is that every single differing account is correct. Yay! Religion has freed me from thought process!!Where my crackers? I’m hungry for Jesus.

  43. It is my understanding that males Jews at that time learned to read and write at the synagogue, and studied the Torah. The Romans must of thought they were ignorant, as they probably didn’t speak great Italian, and didn’t study at a Roman university. They were probably most shocked at the boldness, which was only typical of university graduates. Rhetoric was learned at college. The apostles probably didn’t know anything about philosophy, which was a popular topic among the Romans at that time. Philosophy is the antithesis of revealed religion, and was denounced in the New Testament. It is sad that over the next few hundred years, philosophy would supplant many Christian beliefs, as the Romans embraced Christianity, and looked at it through philosophical eyes.

  44. There are some who claim that the Book of Revelation was written around 68 or 69 AD. This would make Revelations come before quite a few books of the Bible. Some who use this earlier dating believe that the prophecies of John were all fulfilled in the destruction of Jerusalem, and no further fulfillment is to be expected. However, this is not the Mormon view. If all the prophecies were fulfilled then it would mean that nothing in Revelations refers to the end times, and that would change your opinion about the end times. Others believe that Revelations was written around 95 AD. If this late date is accepted then it may possibly be the last book written, though some believe the gospel of John and 3rd John were actually written later than that. It doesn’t really matter, unless you are of the opinion that Revelations was the last book of the Bible, and this proves that the canon of scripture is closed and the Book of Mormon could not possibly be true. But this position fails on many other levels, and was certainly not the intent of statements made in Revelations.

  45. [12] And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”They may have been “unlearned and ignorant” but most Jews of the day were literate in Hebrew.

  46. How about the accuracy and correctness of Aristotle? Once again there are only 5 manuscripts and the oldest, written 1400 years after he had turned to dust.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SekR-QHCX…When the Titanic sunk, out of ALL the survivors only ONE man reported that the ship broke in two. Even the other survivors said that did not happen. It wasn’t until the wreckage was found that he was vindicated.

  47. Jesus Christ established His Catholic Church in 33AD. The Bible was not compiled until the 4th century. Is the Bible the “pillar of truth” in the Christian religion? No. According to the Bible Itself, the Church is the “pillar of truth” (1 Timothy 3:15), not the Bible. Some “Bible” Christians insist that a “pillar” (the Church) was created to “hold up” another structure (the Bible). They claim the Bible is the structure being held up according to this passage. Well, if that is the case, how did the early Church “hold up” the Bible for the first three to four hundred years when the Bible Itself didn’t even exist? Also, even if the Church is only a “pillar” holding up the Bible, doesn’t that mean that the Church is the interpreter of Scripture rather than the individual? Did the early Christians have the Bible as we know it? No. The Bible as a whole was not compiled until the late 4th century and then it was compiled by a Catholic saint (St. Jerome) at the request of a Catholic pope (St. Damasus I). So how were the early Christians saved if they did not possess the entire written “Word of God” to follow His teachings? Well, naturally, they were the Body of Christ and were taught through “oral” teachings by the Church, not by writings.

  48. [5] On the morrow their rulers and elders and scribes were gathered together in Jerusalem,I would have absolutely no idea how they formed the conclusion that one was written before or after the other though. But it doesn’t really matter if it did.

  49. found?Oh, surely you’re not implying they were all *liars*!?The Old Testament was collected together as it was written and preserved through copies by the nation of Israel. After the New Testament was written, the Bible was compiled and preserved through copies by the church, the Body of Christ.

  50. Interesting to read a rehash of the situation yet again. But how does affect one’s daily life?

  51. There were two women who visited Jesus tomb. The messengers were angels. He appeared in the upper room. He first appeared to Mary Magdalene.

  52. There were strict standards in how the bible was copied from person to person, if even a letter was miswritten, the whole parchment was scrapped. Teams of people, not one person, were responsible to make sure everything was done right.Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated, common men, they wondered; and they recognized that they had been with Jesus.The bible is a collection of stories. No one person or group of people sat down together to write it. Their way they told story and how it was passed on and interpreted makes them different.1. None of them claim to be an exhaustive list.It was written about 78 AD. It is valid, because it was written by the last living apostle, through the Revelation from God. How valid is it? Read it carefully, then take a look at the Middle East today. It will either scare you sh!tless, or thrill you, depending on if you are right with God, or not.

  53. The Church put together “The Bible” from the collection of authors (Old Testament, Torah), New Testament from the various apostles. Much of what is written in the New Testament was predicted in the Old Testament.ca va -> gooten tag works, but[14] But seeing the man that had been healed standing beside them, they had nothing to say in opposition.

  54. Ask any cop. Eye witness testemony is the worst. Any cop worth his salt will tell you, if you have 10 witnesses to a crime you will have 10 distinctly different stories. Which is why forensics is so important to them.Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus. (ACTS 4:13)nice try.Truth is that it is a series of made up stories. No other book of the time period talks about jesus other than the bible.[11] This is the stone which was rejected by you builders, but which has become the head of the corner.[16] saying, “What shall we do with these men? For that a notable sign has been performed through them is manifest to all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and we cannot deny it.well if you read the 3 letters of John, just because it was written after revelation doesn’t mean it is less authentic and real. The letters don’t go against God’s will but just announce his love more. The book of Revelation is a revelation of the time John was in and a prophesy of the future, and of the past, so it is most important to be the last book of the bible.

  55. They were not ignorant, they were perceived as such by the men who were persecuting them and putting them on trial.The Chuch has always known that St. John the apostle wrote both books.They had scrolls that were rolled as the Jews have today that contained the Books of Mosses, most of the Prophets, and also writings from the Northern tribes we do not have. They were located in the Synagogue and parts were copied for their personal use.

  56. bible is not true because it was written manny years after jesus the only true bible is Barnabas it it not published because it give that god is one no Trinity and give that a prophet will come ( muhammad) and Jesus was not killed and so on

  57. According to greek philosophers they were ignorant.Christians would prefer you use whatever version says the worse things about groups they don’t like and are bigoted against like gays and other minorities. Oh and it also has to allow for plenty of picking and choosing.

  58. An example – When someone in Quebec greets a friend, he says, “Ca va?” It basically means how are you, but literally it means “it is?” So, if we than translate that to a third language, say German, hello is gooten tag (good day); “it is” translates to “es ist” which is not a greeting!And as for the OT, just the scrolls. That is what they had back then, they all still were familiar with Hebrew, so no need for translation.

  59. It was created from a number of different stories. Constantine was the first to really push for a unified standard bible.

  60. 2. Angels. They had the appearance of young men, so that description is not a “contradiction”.… To many this does not mean to much but it is really important.. Rev 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. 20 He which testifieth (Christ) these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. 21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

  61. We do not have historical documents that contradict the events of the bible. Jesus was a real man, recorded in non-Christian historical documents.The Bible was written by many different people.If there are ten witnesses to any event, you will get ten different views. No two people think exactly alike.[6] with Annas the high priest and Ca’iaphas and John and Alexander, and all who were of the high-priestly family.Um, I have a Bible right next to me, and there are a ton more around the world.

  62. Clearly, in verse 5, “rulers and elders and scribes” are making the observation that the Apostles were not full time synagogue leaders, who were the only ones who had an “education” in that culture. Text without context is a pretext. Your question is lame.
