just an aside...

I have no idea why the gospel could be considered "good news"

the main point of the whole thing is that good people get nailed to trees for the benefit of tyrants. Not very inspiring if you ask me.

3. b
4. Heresay evidence may be given of what was said by another person in the presence of the other party. The other party can then if necessary give evidence to contradict what is supposed to have been said. Also, The Family Law Act provides that evidence may be given of what a child has said to a witness in proceedings. Other than that, hearsay is not acceptable in a court of law because it's considered unreliable.

I'm going to go with whoever got the answers right on numbers 1 through 3.

As to no. 4, I am going to take this answer:

Hearsay is an out-of-court statement, used as evidence in court, to prove the truth of a matter asserted. 

While hearsay is inadmissible, in general, did you know that there are 36 exceptions to the Hearsay rule???  :grin:

I just noticed that I didn't answer the question precisely, i.e., I didn't state why hearsay is inadmissible.

It's inadmissible because when people testify, their perception is tested as to memory, sight, sound, touch, etc.  If you only have the recipient of the story in court, not the actual witness, the attorneys can't test the memory, etc., of the actual witness, and the information obtained may not be reliable.

But to the best of my knowledge, there are NO exceptions to the double-heresay (don't know the technical term) rule. That is where is information is passed third or fourth hand. The exceptions are still all referring to second-hand information, I believe.

You naturally already know where I am going with this...

The proof is in the pudding.

No, I don't know where you are going with it except that maybe you are saying that by the time the bible was written, it was repeated so many times that how could anyone have possibly gotten it right.

However, there are exceptions to all hearsay, even third generation, fourth generation, etc. You have to take each example of hearsay and analyze it, standing alone, to see if it fits within one of the hearsay exceptions.

So let's say you have 4th generation hearsay. You analyze that first, and see if it falls within an exception. If so, it's admissible, and then you move to the 3rd generation, and if it falls within one of the exceptions, it's admissible, until you get to the first generation.

Does anyone know who wrote the bible? I apologize for my ignorance in this area, and I suppose I could go look it up, but I'm not going to do that right now. Maybe later. But if someone already knows how many generations out from Jesus' birth and death the gospels were written, and who wrote the chapters of the new testament, and things like that, it would be helpful.

1 is "B"
2 is ""D"
3 is trick question if I am not mistaken cause 1 apostles writiing were at the time they occured(I could be way off there ) , but all the rest were written after by other authors
4 Because hersey can not be proven with out the actuall persons involved stating thier side of said story .
Kinda like 99% of the bible kinda ironic huh ?
Yet look how many folks over the last several centries have been persecuted ,killed , stripped of their lives over who follows the word of god improperly from some other groups view of how worship is to be done .

I believe you are referring to the Gospel of John, in which case I'm pretty sure you're wrong. That was the last of the four main gospels to be written(about 100 years after Jesus' death), and therefore could not have been the apostle John. It is more likely that is was either some other guy named John, or some collaboration by followers of the that apostle.

"The Bible" is a pretty big work of literature with too many authors to name, many of whom are unknown. If you're just talking about the New Testament, I can be a little more helpful. The Gospel of Mark was the earliest of the four main gospels, and it was written sometime around 50 or 60 years after Jesus' death. The author did not know Jesus personally, but rather relied on the stories of Christians(and by then, many of these stories had most likely been blown out of proportion or even had been urban legends). The authors Matthew and Luke wrote their gospels somewhere around 70 or 80 years after Jesus' death, and also used the stories of Christians, as well as the Gospel of Mark and a certain source scholars have called the "Q source," which has been lost to history by now. The Gospel of John was written about 100 years after Jesus' death, and also most likely used the oral tradition of the Christians.

The reason it took so long(assuming Jesus actually existed) was because Christians believed that the end was near, and that their generation would not pass before Jesus had returned. But then more and more Christians passed away as time went on, so that's when the Gospel writers felt compelled to finally write the story down.

1.  The bible was not written in English
2.  Some words do not translate well
3.  The things you brought up
4.  Printing presses weren't around until the 1400's

Conclusion:

The bible is the word of God.  Those who penned it and copied it were guided by God's hand.  Every thing in the book is literal, except for what everyone personally determines to be a parable. 

Oh, and you will burn in hell if you don't believe me :devil:

My mother just took this quiz, she got the answer wrong in each category so I let her go back for second guesses... and then third, and finally she got the right answer through process of elimination. She's this big bible freak that goes to church many times a week and studies it... so, WTF?

Studying the bible and memorizing dogma are two completely different things.
