Some of the points that this person makes…many New Testament scholars and professors are in agreement with, I see.
There have indeed been parts added to later manuscripts that have not been found in any of the early manuscripts we have, as he says…including the two examples he gives:
Mark 16:9-20 is a well-known one (most bibles have a notation stating to readers that this section was not found in any early versions)
Same with the “He who has not sinned cast the first stone” story…not found in early manuscripts, added hundreds of years later, I think it is.
And i think it’s general knowledge that there were many, many other gospels and books of scripture, as he said, that were followed as sacred text by Christians for the first 4-5 centuries after Jesus died…but not included in the canon in the 4th century because the councils voted against them…so that part is right.
I think another point he’s correct on is that there were some books in the canon that were included because they were thought to be written by someone, then later found not to be…like those six letters by Paul.
Most think “second” Peter and “first” Peter were written by two different people because their styles etc are so vastly different…and that the second one was not written by Peter.
But it was apparently common to do this in that era…to assign well-known names to writings so that people would read them and listen and believe the words.
(Ironically, several books left out of the canon because they were thought to be forgeries at the time were later discovered not to be forgeries! I can’t remember which ones, tho…I will check).
I’ve never heard of there being writings claimed by Mary, Jesus’ mother. If she did write something…well, that would be the biggest find ever.
To sum up, I think of the 27 books in the christian canon…the general consensus among scholars is that… 8 of the books are considered “anonymous” (including the gospels)…9 are written by the people who give their names in the text as the authors…and ten of the books are considered “forgeries” (six of paul’s letters, the book of acts, second Peter, the books of James and Jude…) where they say it’s written by someone, but they are not.
I’m not familiar with the other things he mentions.
Did you research some of the stuff this guy writes about?
What info have you found?
