On the 18th of September Dr Stephen Spence will talk on the dating of the New Testament documents. In other words, when were the books of the New Testament written? Sceptics tend to claim that the New Testament books were written late to enable legendary development whereas Christians tend to argue for early dates? Stephen Spence will outline the outline arguments on both sides and will also discuss other issues that affect New Testament reliability, such as the oral tradition and the authors’ use of prior sources.
