Aaron: "1. Most of the Gospel was written by the people who spoke the words orginally. "

Writers of the Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke, John
1) Do you know who wrote each of those books and when they lived, and whose writing they used as a source?
2) Would you agree most speakers in the Gospel
are not among those four names


Aaron:
" 2.Some of the books of the bible are LETTERS!!! Thus they can be assumed to be accurate. Since
it is written material. From Acts to Jude are LETTERS all 22 of them. A whole 3rd of the bible."

Why don't you capitalize "Bible?"
Agree most letters in the Bible are authentic.
But those are not "the Gospel" and most of their contents are indisputable as to accuracy, since they are about personal inspiration and such things. Their spiritual truths, in context, are not a waste of time to consider.

Aaron:
"3. The 4 Gospel books are all personal rememberances. The ORIGINALS."

Okay, with that answer you could easily be an admirer of Jesus, as were most historically significant scientists in the countries that invented the modern world up to the early 20th Century...but you can still have faith without insisting that statement your statement 3. is true. .

Aaron:
"4. In the Old Testament, many of the books are clearly written by the people who are the main
poeple with in them."

Fine...maybe...does this prove the quotes and events were a supremely representative account of their times? We're lucky to have them


Aaron: " 5.What knowledge do you posses to say that they are anything, but the originals.

It's widely known. Visit the library please, or online. Look for scholarly works. Thank you for asking.

Mike
