If a tradition is not believed, or is considered unimportant, it will not be repeated. 253) was the head of the catechetical school in Alexandria after Clement. 263-339) was bishop of Caesarea and the first true church historian. He was the primary creator of the Vulgate, a key Latin translation of the Bible from Greek and Hebrew sources. He was one of the great theologians of the church, and he also reported on historical details.The traditions that get pruned will be those that are the least popular, but not necessarily the least true. He left there as a result of a conflict (more political than theological) with the local bishop, and founded a new school in Caesarea. He preserved much of the tradition that would have been lost otherwise. In this time (and largely under the influence of Jerome and Augustine) there were several councils that ratified the contents of the current Roman Catholic Bible.The church fathers did not have the current understanding of history and authorship. To determine New Testament authorship as best we can, we use the earliest of the patristic sources augmented by the internal evidence of the New Testament.
Before we can talk about what the New Testament says, we have to justify that what it says can be trusted.The writings of the church fathers are referred to as "the tradition" or as "patristic sources" in most discussions of this subject. All information from after this time either depends on earlier available sources or is suspect because we are unable to determine what the earlier sources are.For my purposes I will look at the most relevant information from before A. Unfortunately, the questions of New Testament authorship and dating are not cut and dried. There is substantial variation in the writings of the church fathers.Therefore, in order to keep the true story, it is critical that the tradition gets frozen before too much time has passed. Today's man is not so much more knowledgeable and less biased than ancient man. 213) was the head of the catechetical school in Alexandria. The Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke show dramatic similarities. We now know that the entire New Testament was written by first-, second-, and third-hand witnesses, in the range of 20-120 years after the death of Jesus.When we have many traditions available, we can use this model to analyze the relevance of each tradition. Especially for the ancient tradition, we can expect that the church fathers actually had information that is not available to us by virtue of how close they were to the events themselves. He should not be confused with Clement of Rome, one of the first popes. When displayed in three columns, with Matthew on the left, Mark in the middle, and Luke on the right (Gospel Parallels Throckmorton), it becomes apparent that there is a significant relationship between the Gospels. The Other Letters, written by various persons, some apostles and some not, (A. The majority of the New Testament was written by second-hand witnesses from 30-55 years after the death of Jesus.
We will learn that even in the most pessimistic, but rational, reading of the data, we come to the understanding that the authors of the New Testament are close enough to the events to be able to give an accurate picture of historical events.
