The four Gospels became a sort of “mini-canon,” a closed collection which would admit no other Gospels. Zindler’s appealing to Occam’s Razor and claiming his contrived, reworked, unattested history is a “simpler” view than the one in the Gospels is unreasonable to an excess.

Eastern Stages Metzger notes these three significant developments in the Eastern half of the late Roman Empire in the late 2nd century AD: Wells who brings up an issue we have covered hereissues of geography covered in the link above, points covered hereas well as this claim:.

The standard would render a great many geographical locations mentioned uniquely in single ancient authors “fictitious”. Again, such arguments are generally advanced only by the uninformed.


He could walk on water and held the keys to the gates of heaven. The box was actually two boxes, but a partition had been removed to make way for Lincoln’s full party. After the Jewish war with the Romans from AD it was necessary to re-settle Jewish priests and their zindller.
