I am not a scholar. I never finished college, and my view of the "Truth" is based on things which I have read. I have read Mormon, Baptist, JW, Christian Scientist, Jack Chick, and yes (pardon me for saying the "C" word) Catholic writing. Does anyone know when the books of the NT were written? Knowing this might have a real impact on the way we view some parts of the NT books. For instance, on one radio program I heard that since the Gospel of John doesn't re-present the "THIS IS MY BODY, THIS IS MY BLOOD" dialogue, then it really isn't that important. However, if it was written many years after the other three, and John wanted to more fully explain the true meaning of those words by writing, For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. Wouldn't this have an impact on the way we should look at his writings? Never having studied the early Church as some of you have, can you give me a time line showing when the books of the NT are believed to have been written?
