Bruce: the New Testament documents

Sunday, April 8, 2018
    Commemoration of William Augustus Muhlenberg of New York, Priest, 1877
    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.

Quiet time reflection:
    Living Word, I thank You for Your written word.
