- Wise men came later, when Jesus was around 2 and living in Nazareth
- Nowhere does it say there were 3 kings

Is John’s Gospel Reliable? [12/18/2011]


 In a discussion Vocab had with the host of an atheist podcast, he was told:
my argument pushes for a historical Jesus and your argument is for a theological one. This is why such a conversation is nearly impossible. Additionally, monogenes only appears in John, and let's face it, that gospel is ******* trippy :) I much prefer the Q source (since historians don't generally regard John as a very accurate portrayal of a historical Jesus).

This power-packed edition of Backpack Radio is a response to the claim that the Gospel of John is unreliable as a historical document.
