On several occasions I have stated that the synoptic Gospels were written before 44 A.D. I have been challenged by many atheists who assert that I am wrong; the synoptic Gospels were written late in the first century.
In an effort to give all atheists the opportunity to prove their claims, I am launching a formal challenge for any person to present evidence here at this article that the synoptic Gospels were written late in the first century.
If you believe that you can provide evidence that proves a late-date writing of these Gospels, I have five simple requests:
- Present the evidence here at the end of this article, at the comments section.
- Present the name of the scholar or source of the evidence.
- Present the actual evidence, not simply what a scholar has said or written in a publication—but the actual evidence that proves a late-date writing.
- Please do not present a link to a website, but present the textual evidence here at this location.
- If you are coming to this article from Twitter, please post your argument here, not at my Twitter feed. It is not possible to respond or debate this subject at Twitter, due to space limitations.
I will respond to every serious argument, and we can begin a debate of this important subject.
UPDATE: August 23, 2019
As Expected, There Have Been No Challenges From Atheists To Prove Their Assertion That The Synoptic Gospels Were Written Late In The First Century—Because There Is No Evidence To Prove This Claim.
