     | 1,555 views

    The New Testament is the best source of historical information from the time period of Jesus and it stands the test of scutiny. Therefore it is not only reliable it is the most reliable document of its kind!

One statement that I heard just recently is that the gospels were written as a way to communicate faith ...read more
