Not sure if this should be its own article. Maybe it can be joined with either the summary of the NT, or with the summary of Luke? Unless I'm missing your point, which is likely today. --WaitingforGodot 11:33, 16 July 2008 (EDT)
If it is its own article, could someone who knows about it explain the authorship debates surrounding the rest of the books of the bible (whether the authors are actually who the tradition states, whether the authors were actual apostles, whether the author of Revelations was on mushrooms or ergot...). Otherwise I say merge. WazzaHello? Is there anybody in there? Just nod if you can hear me... 13:24, 22 June 2009 (UTC)


There's nothing about Paul's letters. Aren't some of them fakes or something? Real first name and last initial (talk) 13:38, 1 November 2010 (UTC)

Jews speaking Greek?[edit]

Removed from the artile: "If he is supposed to be a Jew, but writes like an educated Greek, it is a huge red flag regarding the authenticity of the claim to authorship." - not if he were Hellenized - that is, had adopted the language and culture of the ruling class.
