Skeptics and critics of the Bible argue that it cannot be trusted because it wasn’t written until approximately 100 years after Jesus. They claim that since it was written so much later, it contains inaccurate information and legends that grew up around Jesus.

Without having the space to go into all the dates and details, just let me say that the overwhelming evidence is that the majority of the New Testament was written within years of Jesus’ death and resurrection and not a century later.

There is also both biblical and extra-biblical evidence that the gospels were written by eyewitnesses to Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection.
General consensus among New Testament scholars is that all of the New Testament, minus a couple of books, is that it was completed before AD 70.
The argument that it was not written until 125 AD is an erroneous assumption about a gathering of early church leaders called the Council of Nicea.

In the September 19 message, we will dive in a little deeper to the happening of and results of the Council of Nicea. When the evidence is weighed, the reasonable verdict is that the Bible is the G.O.A.T. and also an I.R.A. worthy of our best investment.
