45. I thought I made it clear
Edited on Sun Apr-25-10 08:02 PM by zeemike
no one could have witnessed the generations of Jesus in the gospells...but relating what you do know to be accepted fact is not the same as an eye witness account but is often found in the account....that does not prove that what WAS witnessed is not true.

But what about the good case I just made that it could have been written down at the time but that no copy of the original survived....which is the case for the vast majority of documents produced at the time.
One could make the assertion that Mathew was not a tax collector because there is no record of it too.
Or that Mathew Mark Luke and John never existed...because we don't have the documents to prove it.
And the same is true of Plato or Socrotees....we do not have the original in their own hand.

Now if you have convincing proof that the wittinesses never wrote it down in their lifetime I am listening.
