CQOD: 03/30/08 -- Bruce: the New Testament documents
Christian Quotation of the DayMarch 30, 2008
Christ is the end of the law so that there may be righteousness for everyone who believes.
-- Romans 10:4 (NIV)
The evidence for our New Testament writings is ever so much greater than the evidence for many writings of classical authors, the authenticity of which no-one dreams of questioning. And if the New Testament were a collection of secular writings, their authenticity would generally be regarded as beyond all doubt. It is a curious fact that historians have often been much readier to trust the New Testament than have many theologians.
