Timothy R: I've not been swayed. All the questions up there are false especially the part where the gospels don't agree. Luke was a doctor so he took more notes and wrote more things down than all of the disciples did. I did know about the Easter name though. Also, a phenomenon like the darkness and the earthquake and the temple, was seen by all the temple guards, pharisees and Romans, who wouldn't report any of that to pilot especially since he was the final decision maker in the whole crucifixion. Even though all of the gospels, minus Luke, do not say how many women went to the tomb, that doesn't matter, He did rise from the dead and people over the ages have taken that and twisted it into their own stories and accounts. The BIBLE, was NEVER changed from their meanings from the Greek, Roman, and Hebrew texts when translated by my so many Great Granpa's ago, John Reynolds, when he translated the official English text for the King James Version. Everything in the gospels MUST mirror everything prophesied in the Old Testament. Another thing is, the disciples had lost all their hope and were fearing for their lives since Jesus had died. The one they had followed and staked their lives on. Jesus said Peter would deny him 3 times before the cock would crow, and he did and it was recorded. Oh, and there is a way to know that the gospels were all preserved.

Timothy R: This is as twisted a quiz as you can ever get. No disciple would have staked their claims that Jesus rose again had He not appeared to them. They didn't believe the women, they called them Jokers. Not to mention, it's impossible for the disciples to even steal the body. 1) There's a HUGE GIGANTIC stone in front of the tomb with a seal from the governor, that no one may enter or go out. That boulder is huge, and for the disciples to move something that big without some sort of help is impossible. 2) There are Roman Guards there to block the way and only something supernatural like the angel could stop them, which one did. 3) The pharisees have already gone all out to call Jesus a liar, b/c they specifically knew he said he'd rise again in three days. And they bribed the soldiers telling them to say the disciples took the body, while they were sleeping, which we already know is impossible, and that they'd take care of the rest. (They'd have to be some heavy sleepers)

Skycomet: Tim... the disciples didn't write the gospels. The earliest OFFICIAL gospel was Mark which was written sometime after 65 AD.... and the others came later. The writers of the gospels are unknown to this day, and it should also be noted that the gospels were added to and edited multiple times, for a couple centuries. They're really NOT reliable sources of info on the life of Jesus at all. If you want to learn about Jesus, I would suggest you look at a variety of different sources about him, Josephus, Eusiebus, the Gnostic Gospels, the Sepher Toldoth Yeshu. It gives a fascinating look into different interpretations of Jesus.

Skycomet: Also, Tim... not all the gospels say that the women told anyone. The original version of Mark [the oldest gospel] says that the women "left and told no one."

Yes, Josephus' mention of Jesus was probably a later Christian "perfection" of the original document. But, given that he knows basically nothing about the real origins of the Jesus myth, it is best I don't overload his circuits. If I expose him to alternate versions of Jesus, even the Toldoth Anti-gospel, it is likely that will start the deconversion process [as it did with me] - I have been working on him for two years. By bringing up problems with literalism from time to time, I am attempting to place doubt or at least nagging questions in his head. If you have any advice on how to do this better, I would much appreciate your help. ^_^

Wow, so you have taken him on like some kind of project - lol. He is lucky you care enough to do so. It is good at least you have gotten this far with him. I saw something funny posted on TA yesterday that your FB exchanges with Tim remind me of. Maybe you might try this on him (lol):

I think the word  you're looking for, Jennifer, is "interpolation".  Many scholars believe interpolations were injected into Josephus passages about Jesus.  Overzealous scribes have been known to inject their own words, while transcribing, to surreptitiously enhance the credibility of Jesus.  But there doesn't appear to be a consensus about possible interpolations.  Josephus himself is considered a reliable source.
Fantastic replies, Sky! I'd like to know if he says anything back lol
Sky - You sure do know your stuff. Way to go! I hope Tim is not sitting in a corner somewhere right now, crying because of all the doubts you put into his head lol.
