Het Konstantyn besluit wat in die Bybel moet wees? Hoekom is die ander geskrifte oor Jesus nie in die Bybel nie?

Lee Strobel ondervra vir sy boek, “A case for Christ” vir Craig A. Evans, ‘n hoogs gerepekteerde Bybelse skolier en geskiedkundige wat selfs ‘n paar lede van die skeptiese Jesus seminaar onder sy onderskrywers het.

Lee Strobel: What about the allegation that the reason we don’t have any competing gospels from the first century is because they were gathered and burned?

Craig A. Evans:”For crying out loud, the Christians had no control over the city. They couldn’t command or coerce anyone to burn anything. The idea that there was some sort of culling process or or purging that took place in the first century is really absurd.”

Lee Strobel:”How about the claim that we see in The da Vinci Code that Constantine collated the books of the Bible in the fourth century and burned all the alternative gospels?”

Craig A. Evans:”That’s just nonsense. The idea of Constantine telling Christians what ought to be in the Bible and gathering up gospels and burning them- that’s fictional material in Dan Brown’s book. It isn’t legitimate history written by people who know what they are talking about.”

En hoe vergelyk die 4 evangelies met die ander geskrifte oor Jesus, wat ook evangelies genoem word? Weereens is professor Evans aan die woord:

If one examines all the evidence fairly and completely, then it’s a logical conclusion that the canonical writings have an exclusive claim to being connected to the gospel. For crying out loud- the gospel of Thomas doesn’t! And would anyone claim that the so-called gospel of Peter- found in the coffin of a monk in the ninth century – has any connection with Peter? Come on!

If you had ten documents and you arbitrarily selected four of them and said only they have a connection with the apostels, and you didn’t have any reason for saying that – then that would be prejudice, I agree. But if you go through all ten and then discover that you actually do have credible historical evidence for four of them as having some kind of apostolic connection and the others not a chance- then it’s not a dogmatic, prejudicial assertion. It’s a reasonalble and considered conclusion., based on the evidence.

…Matthew, Mark, Luke and John were earlier than all these other gospels, and they have credible connections with the first generation,apostolic, eyewitness sources. The only way to deny that is to say well, I don’t care what the evidence says, I will instead rely on my own intuition and guesswork and preference. Now, I call that dogmatic and prejudiced!

Kortom, 4 evangelies word vertrou,oor 4 evangelies betroubaar is.

4 Berigte, een storie: Feit of fiksie?

Kyk net watter nonsens praat die liberale media nou al weer!

A Southwest Airlines Boeing 737 rests in the middle of Central Ave. Saturday, Dec. 10, 2005 in Chicago. The jetliner, trying to land in heavy snow slid off the runway Thursday at Midway Airport, crashed through a boundary fence and slid out into the street, hitting one car and pinning another beneath it. A child in one of the vehicles was killed. (AP Photo/M. Spencer Green)
– What we know from this: there were only 2 cars, 1 boundary fence and only 1 child was hurt/killed.

A snowy runway caused a Southwest Airlines Boeing 737 to skid off the runway in Chicago Thursday evening. Nobody on the plane was seriously injured, but a 6-year old boy was killed as the plane skid onto the intersection of 55th Street and Central Avenue, and hit the vehicle he was traveling in.
– This one must be false because it only mentions 1 vehicle being hit (the last one had 2) and nothing about going through any fence, but we know there were fences from the first report.

Southwest Airlines jet sits on a roadway after it crashed through a security wall the evening before at Midway Airport in Chicago, Illinois. US authorities launched an investigation after the jet skidded off a Chicago airport runway and into a street where it hit two cars and killed a child

– This also must be made up because it says the plane went thru a security wall, not a boundary fence like the last one said it did? If a plane went through a brick wall it would have exploded or at least caught on fire don’t you think? Ah you are thinking a boundary/security wall what’s the difference? Well one is a fence the other a wall. This whole situation sounds like it was made up from the start.

A Southwest Airlines plane bound from Baltimore, Maryland, sits on a road along Chicago’s Midway Airport December 9, 2005, after crashing through a safety barrier while trying to land during a snowstorm in Chicago on December 8, 2005. (Frank Polich/Reuters)
-This story doesn’t mention that someone was killed in this crash. Which is kinda important don’t you think? It talks about a safety barrier not a wall, it also doesn’t talk about any cars being hit. So were NO cars hit? This story totally contradicts ALL the others. What liars these Reuters guys are.

Is ek ‘n mal heks wat kyf oor die media? Nee. Die openingsin is ‘n manier om jou knoppies te druk, om aandag op “Neil” se stuk te vestig. En “Neil” is ook nie ‘n mal ou wat regtig uitvaar teen die media nie. Gaan kyk op sy blog waarom hy hierdie dinge gesê het.
