THE IMPLICATIONS IF THE NEW TESTAMENT IS NOT TRUE A. THE NEW TESTAMENT IS A CAREFULLY ORCHESTRATED LIE. We have seen the great accuracy they used in describing events, places, and people (as confirmed by archaeology) - Lk 2. If the record of miracles and the resurrection is false, then they very carefully intertwined fact and fiction.

The so-called NEW testament is a sham, a hoax, a work of fiction ― a myth. It was simply a collection of writings, edited and reedited by the early church fathers from CE until when the NEW testament was canonized as the “official” religion of the literate, ignorant, subservient and poor gentiles in Rome and conquered territories.

The books of the Bible were written for a purpose. God does nothing in vain. John's gospel is his personal testimony to the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth. He wrote: "This is the disciple who testifies of these things, and wrote these things; and we know that his testimony is true.

According to Norman Geisler and William Nix, "The New Testament, then, has not only survived in more manuscripts than any other book from antiquity, but it has survived in a purer form than any other great book—a form that is % pure". The New Testament as true fiction: literature, literary criticism, aesthetics.

The True Authorship of the New Testament is the first book that explains the true authorship of the New Testament. It has been advertised and sold in magazines since and no one has claimed the $1, challenge the Foundation has offered to anyone who can disprove their thesis that the Calpurnius Piso's of Rome wrote the New Testament.

The New Testament Books Here are the books of the New Testament in the canonical order of the Bible, with links to the pages where you can find translations, the original Greek, commentary, and information on these books of the New Testament. The New Testament books were written by followers of Paul after the destruction of Jerusalem.

They were fashioned to support this new gospel, including statements added to make it appear that Jesus saw himself in the role as envisioned by Paul.

In this volume the late Dr. Henry C. Thiessen ably sets forth the conservative view of the New Testament. The author believes that the plenary inspiration of the autographs of the New Testament is the only logical view that can be held by those who accept the true deity as well as the perfect humanity of Christ.

For example, reading the books of the New Testament in the order in which they are now assembled means starting with the Gospel of Matthew. However, the Gospel of Matthew was not the first gospel to be written; because Matthew was regarded as the most important of the Gospels, it was placed first in the New Testament.From the s we have records showing that the New Testament canon consisted of 27 books—the same books we have today.
