Far be it from us to refrain from adding supplementary information just because it deals with chapters we’ve long since covered!
For those who can always use a little reinforcement to their confidence in the authority of the Scriptures, consider this post from a blog I just discovered. The post caught my eye because a friend recently encouraged me to pick up a copy of Salman Rushdie’s The Satanic Verses–certainly an even more poignant selection of fiction in light of recent tragic events. The post is a response to Rushdie’s, and arguably countless others’, perceptions of the dating of the New Testament documents. Conventional wisdom assumes the date of the epistles and gospels lags so far beyond the date of the subject matter as to render them invalid witnesses.
