Tillotson: fact or fiction?

Monday, May 23, 2022
    Commemoration of Petroc, Abbot of Padstow, 6th century
    [Jesus:] “But this has all taken place that the writings of the prophets might be fulfilled.” Then all the disciples deserted him and fled.
    —Matthew 26:56 (NIV)
    It is by no means necessary to salvation to believe that St. Matthew wrote ... the gospel, but only to believe what he wrote.
    ... John Tillotson (1630-1694), Works of Dr. John Tillotson, v. IX, London: J. F. Dove, for R. Priestley, 1820, p. 231 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 26:54-56; 21:42; 22:31-32; Mark 12:24; 2 Tim. 3:16
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have made the truth about Jesus available to us all.
