The First Apology of Justin

Justin Martyr was a Christian apologist who wrote c. 150-160. His three works are known as the First Apology, the Second Apology, and the Dialogue with Trypho. Irenaeus tells us that Justin wrote a work against Marcion, which is now lost. Some authentic materials are preserved in the fragments of Justin quoted by other writers, although some of these fragments may be suspect. The other documents listed - the Hortatory Address to the Greeks, On the Sole Government of God, and On the Resurrection - are of dubious authenticity. They may have been written instead by another Christian author, now unknown. It has been suggested that the Discourse to the Greeks was originally a Jewish treatise. [Justin] [Early Church Fathers]

Chronology of Christianity

Detailed chronology (1AD - the present).

Link: https://coursebible.com/timelines/chrono...

THE FORMATION OF THE CANON: THE NEW TESTAMENT

"The determination of the Canon of the New Testament was not the result of any pronouncement, either by an official of the Church or by an ecclesiastical body. Rather, the Canon was determined by the use of these books throughout all of the Churches during the first and second centuries. The establishment of the Canon was the process by which formal recognition was given to the writings of Scripture already recognized as authoritative."

Link: https://coursebible.com/christian-eviden...

TRANSMISSION OF THE BIBLE

"The accuracy of the present-day Hebrew version of the Old Testament is a result of the fastidious care with which the Sopherim and the Masoretes transmitted it. The Sopherim copied manuscripts of the Hebrew Scriptures from about 300 B.C. until A.D. 500. According to the Talmud, they came to be called "Sopherim" because, in their endeavor to preserve the text from alteration or addition, they counted the number of words in each section of Scripture, as well as the number of verses and paragraphs. The accuracy of the present-day Greek version of the New Testament has resulted from the comparison of thousands of manuscripts by textual critics who have been able to separate them into families on the basis of certain variations that each manuscript family has in common. The principles of textual criticism enable scholars to determine which versions of the text are predecessors of the others, thereby coming close to the original reading."

Link: https://coursebible.com/christian-eviden...

The Formation Of The Canon: The Old Testament

"The Hebrew Scriptures were recognized as authoritative at their inception, and were immediately accepted as such by the Jewish people. The acceptance of the Pentateuch, for example, is recorded in Deuteronomy 32:46-47, and in Joshua 1:7,8. As a matter of course, the Church of the first century regarded the Hebrew Scriptures as inspired. Jesus, in Luke 24:44, refers to the Law, the prophets, and the psalms (or the writings) as divinely authoritative and canonical. The Jews accepted all of the 39 books of the Old Testament as inspired. A confirmation of public opinion along these lines was made at the synod at Jamnia." Also mentions briefly about Philo, Josephus, and Origen.

Link: https://coursebible.com/christian-eviden...

Views Of The Bible Throughout History

"It is evident from the literature of the Christian Church from the time of the Apostolic Fathers onward, that the Church has always considered the Bible to be trustworthy in its affirmations about itselfl."

Link: https://coursebible.com/christian-eviden...

Miracles Throughout History

"Many people argue against the miracles of the Bible by asking why there have been no miracles since the time the Bible was written. However, there is an abundance of evidence that miracles have been happening throughout the history of the Church. Many of the other early church fathers referred to the operation of the miraculous gifts of the Spirit, and recorded other miraculous phenomena which took place in their day, including demonic activity."

Link: https://coursebible.com/christian-eviden...

Twentieth Century Miracles

"Miracles became so commonplace in the late twentieth century that the antisupernaturalistic world view that was predominant for most of that century eventually gave way to a less dogmatic consensus on this question among many scholars. A large proportion of these phenomena took place either in third world countries or among adherents of the Pentecostal and Charismatic movements. Those who attribute the miracles of these movements to demonic activity also acknowledge that they are miracles."

Link: https://coursebible.com/christian-eviden...

Christianity And Superstition

"In view of the evidence for these things, it would take more faith to believe that there is no God than to believe that He is responsible for these things. Medieval superstition may strain our credulity, but Christianity as it is presented in the Scriptures is not of the same class. The miracles described within the Bible are not fantastic stories. Rather, they fit within the context of history to such an extent that it would strain our credulity not to believe them."

Survey of Old Testament History

The Bible Knowledge Accelerator #4-The Spread of Christianity: Jesus dying on a Roman cross was not the end but the beginning. His followers were Jewish and would spread a message called the "gospel" meaning "good news" starting in Jerusalem and spreading to the farthest parts of the known world. Their message was: Jesus, a lowly Jewish carpenter from the despised city of Nazareth, was rejected by His own Jewish nation and crucified by the Roman governor was indeed the Messiah and the Savior of mankind, who rose from the dead and anyone who would accept Him would be forgiven of all sins and would rise with Him in glory. Those who spread the message were scorned by their own nation as well, and also by the Greek and Roman cultures who referred to the message as "superstitious rabble." Yet the message spread to all who had open hearts throughout the whole world and, as Jesus had promised, the Holy Spirit would enter into their hearts and lives. As Christianity spread the "Christians" were fiercly persecuted and shortly after the message went out it became a capital offense to be a Christian. Yet Christianity survived all the slander, hatred and persecutions and after approximately 300 years it broke the power of its greatest adversary in the world, the Roman Empire. Christianity was destined to spread and it would transform the whole Greco-Roman world.
