Where did Mark and Luke get information about life of Jesus to write Gospel? There is a very large field of study that attempts to put forth various theories of authorship by writing styles, word usage, and quite a bit of conjecture. We do know of the twelve immediate disciples of Jesus. We also know of seventy others that were sent out on a particular ...

I can scarcely disagree with Affable Geek when he says everyone had an agenda. I am also very much in agreement with his assessment of Tacitus, Flavius Josephus and later Christian "historians." Therefore, I do not propose to reiterate the reasons those historians can not be regarded as entirely reliable. Where I may, with respect, disagree is in the ...

Keep it simple!!!! The fact of the matter is in any multiple witness testimony is always going to differ slightly, because of our own individual take on things. In a court case it would be highly suspect if multiple witnesses gave identical testimonies, as opposed to similar testimonies. Both criminals, rebels, outlaws...
