Re: What do you all think of this guy?

Christian2, sorry I didn't know you are a believer - I would have if I'd looked at your older posts. But sometimes when a poster asks many questions and I see their profile lacks a description of their belief, I'll just ask the question. It's hard to remember every poster's history. Not a problem. :)

Re: What do you all think of this guy?

Christian 2 - you ask a lot of question about what others think about this or that related to Christianity. I see your profile shows no indication of what you believe, faith-wise. Are you a follower of Christ? Yes, I am a follower of Christ; my nickname should tell you that. It is worth noting that...

Re: An earlier date for the Gospel of John

Both Revelation and the Gospel of John have arguments for their dating that include arguments from silence concerning key events that would seem inconceivable to have been left out. The horrific persecutions by Nero, the destruction of the Temple in 70 AD. The author of John identifies himself as a...

Re: An earlier date for the Gospel of John

Well, did John write revelations Before or after The Gospel? Add to that the fact that the GOJ was not written BY John, but by his followers, then the question isn't just when John passed it on but also when they wrote it down. Bart Ehrman does not think the Apostle John wrote Revelation. https://e...

An earlier date for the Gospel of John

http://www.ristosantala.com/rsla/Nt/NT07.html

Have any of you read the book: "Redating the New Testament" by Robinson

The above link explains the logic for an early date for the Gospel of John.

What do you all think?

Thank you.
