There is an unbroken chain of writers discussing the New Testament that goes back to soon after the Gospels were written.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.The authors must have clear links to the eyewitnesses (or be eyewitnesses) to reduce the possibility of communication mistakes.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.
Some of Paul's letters, for example, seem to indicate he left Rome and travelled westward to Spain in a "later" career - other sources say, no, he was beheaded in 62AD.
New Testament (n.b., this is a "higher chronology" than you will find elsewhere = dates are earlier; numbers in bold represent the traditional New Testament English order; parenthetical bold numbers are the traditional order in the Bible overall): series (wherein a verse by verse exegesis of the entire book).
Original translations of specific verses from throughout the Bible can be found in the Translation Index.
This area of discussion is one where charity, grace, and humility are called for above all.
