  1. In the commentary does he actually list the ancient sources that he alludes to in presentation? For instance, Acts matches other historical works, so in my mind I am thinking, “what works from that time and region do we have?” Do we have enough novels from that time and region to say they are all romance novels? Does he cite scholars outside the faith tradition? I want to believe much of what he says, however, I have been burned in the past with “christian” scholars cherry picking data to make the Bible seem more historical. I do appreciate about what he said about the difference between modern and classical history. Again, though, how do we know that? I have to take his word on it.

  2. Seriously?

    Isn’t it amazing a work written long after Paul’s letters would portray Paul in almost exactly the same way? And that the small differences fit how another person’s perception and memory would necessarily differ from the original? Amazing.
