comment Is Belief in the Historical Accuracy of Gospels a prerequisite to Christianity?
Weren't there other texts from that era? I hear about gospels of everyone from Judas to Mary Magdalene from time to time. So isn't it possible that the 4 gospels agree so well because some later fallible humans picked the 4 that agreed and discarded the rest?

I think much doubt can be found/encountered in the fact that even if you completely believe in the divinity of Jesus Christ, the stories of his life and times have been passed down to us via your everyday fallible human being. It seems natural to assume that things could be lost/distorted/misinterpreted over 2000 years of history; the fear is that some of those mistakes/errors may affect some fundamental tenet of the faith.
