When did Christianity Begin' is part of a series of articles regarding the history of Christianity. In this episode, we take up where we left off in my last post, entitled 'Roman Catholic,' about the year 630, and continue on to the year 787. King oswy of england (stained glass dated 1813). How did this happen? As the Arabian hordes swarmed out of the desert, Byzantium and Persia had recently devastated each other in war; so Christian lands were weak militarily. They were also not united as a Church, with many divisions among them doctrinally.

How we measure 'reads'. At once stimulating and even-handed, it places the development of archaeological thought and theory throughout within a broad social and intellectual framework.

Distinctive features of this book: 1. Comprehensive historical approach, with evidence from ancient Judaism, Christianity, and paganism. 2. Based on ancient archaeological and literary sources, including Dead Sea scrolls, abundantly quoted. 3. Focuses on the problems of the early churches. 4. Considers those problems as the source of gospel stories and "sayings of Jesus." 5. Applies advanced methods of biblical research. 6. Incorporates new research on the life and death of Jesus, and the origins of Christian baptism, the Lord's Supper, and Gnosticism.How did Christianity begin? What did Jesus actually say and do? Was he only a myth? Was he human or divine? What new information do the Dead Sea scrolls provide? Other Jewish sources? Christian writings? Greco-Roman archaeology? Etc. Here the author presents the conclusions to which the ancient sources lead. This book is the product of 50 years of personal research in libraries, museums, and archaeological sites. It is written for both scholars and the general public.

The author is not offering anything new. He merely repacks higher criticism and tries to sell it to his generation. Higher criticism relies on two sources: (1)Hume's argument against miracles; (2)denying the reliability of biblical documents (This book is principally against the reliability of the New Testament). The author repacks these arguments and tries to find the weakest link in Christian tradition, which is its Scriptures. The method employed is higher criticism. With regard to Hume's argument against miracles, I recommend "Hume's Abject Failure" by John Earman or "Miracles" by C. S. Lewis. Hume's argument states that the most absurd explanation is more probable than the miraculous explanation. If miracles are that improbable, then the miracles testified by Scripture is supposively discredited. However, Hume's argument also dispenses with all knowledge. It is a Pyrrhic victory since even the alternative explanations for the miraculous which Hume wishes to resort to become null and void as to viability. For, if uniform experience were against miracles, then you are begging the question. My uniform experience has been against seeing an elephant in America. According to Hume, the first time I see an elephant in America, I must disbelieve my perception of it since my uniform experience has been against it. That's crazy reasoning. And that is why it is circular reasoning. The second issue concerns the integrity of Scripture. I recommend John A. T. Robertson's book (a liberal theologian, by the way, so there is no right wing conspiracy here) "Redating the New Testament." Most ancient documents we have, such as Plato or Cicero, are copies that came over "500" years "after" the authors died. Yet, classical scholarship doesn't question their reliability. The New Testament are incredibliy reliable since they date within a few years of Christ's crucifixion. For example, Luke, who wrote Luke's Gospel, also wrote the book of Acts. The book of Acts is part two of Luke's Gospel. And the book of Acts is the biography of Paul. Paul died under Nero's persecution of the Christians. Nero died in 68 A.D. When Luke wrote the book of Acts, Paul was still alive since Luke didn't record Paul's death but addressed him as if he were still alive at the time the book of Acts was written. Therefore, the book of Acts was written before 68 A.D. Luke's Gospel was written before the book of Acts, so we know Luke's Gospel was written earlier than 68 A.D. All scholars agree that Luke relied on Mark's Gospel when he composed the Gospel of Luke. That places Mark's Gospel even earlier. So, we see that the New Testament documents which we have were written within a few years of Christ's crucifixion. Therefore, they are perhaps the most reliable documents in the classical world. Apart from the integrity of the institutions and subsequent members of the Christian church, we see that the Holy Scripture of the New Testament and the life, death and miraculous resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead is reliable testimony and consistent with Christian tradition for 2000 years. There may be different churches, but there is one Creed and one Gospel between them. The other matters addressed aren't worth refuting since Christianity stands or falls on Christ's resurrection from the dead. And the reliability of Scriptural testimony which testifies of that resurrection is as solid as anything can be. One can also note that the Talmud, written by hostile witnesses, tried to explain away the miracles of Jesus. You can hardly say Jesus did not exist or that He didn't perform miracles when hostile sources say you're the product of a Roman soldier and a prostitute and that your miracles have alternative explanations. The author conveniently ignores critical facts and betrays his own lack of integrity as a purported scholar. Once again, freemasons masquerading as skeptics try to attack the Christian faith. Don't follow Teeple into hell. It isn't worth it.

This is just another example of Mr. Teeple's solid scholarship. The title page lists it as "A Historical-Archaeological Approach" which indeed it is. He does an excellent job of taking the reader step-by-step through his various points and gives excellent citations for his copious sources. There is nothing earth-shattering about his ideas, though many Christians will find them disturbing. Most, if not all of his conclusions have been presented before by other main-stream scholars, but he does an excellent job of presenting them in a unified, well documented manner.
