That's all entirely false. You're not understanding my position. My objective was to seek to date the historical sources which are independent of the church and which corroborate the church dogma that the NT was a product of the 1st century (or 2nd). If you think that objective is an invalid historical investigation then you had better state your reasons.There is no justification for.your assumption thatJewish sources were any more reliable than Church ones or.any less.bias. .
You seem to have a double.standard, accepting Jewish sources at face value, but hyper skeptical.ld Christian ones.
Yet you accept whategrr Jewish writers wrote. You clearly have 2 standards, which makes you anri-Christian, not just skeptical..
On another issue you complained that Drews was certainly wrong to contemplate Jewish influence on the NT. This is based on your chronology for the NT before the 189 CE appearance of the Mishna. Do you happen to know the chronology that Drews had hypothesised for the authorship of the NT?
