Biblical Less-Than-Truths

The authorial authenticity of the Bible has come into question from time to time and it appears there has been additional research concerning who deserves credit for some New Testament pieces.

Most scholars (and many regular literate citizens for that matter) have known for a long time that there are a host of inconsistencies and historically unsupported claims and events in the Bible.  Some recent research has revealed that there are many books who’s authorship is incorrectly credited to the scriptural authority figures, such as Paul and Peter.  Apparently there are several books written by these figures, penned many years after their deaths.

It’s definitely an interesting issues.  For Christian fundamentalists, there is of course wide-spread refusal to acknowledge this research or its findings as legitimate.

An article discussing this research, found at the Huffington Post, can be read here.
