Dating the writing time

By these dates they argue that the New Testament documents, especially the Gospels, contain mythology.

The writers created the events contained, rather than reported them.

Daniel's words foretold of a Messiah that would be killed at Jerusalem before the temple and Jerusalem were destroyed in 70 CE.

Christians logically accept and believe that Jesus fulfilled these prophetic words.

Roman historian Colin Hemer has provided powerful evidence that Acts was written between AD 60 and 62. There is no mention in Acts of the crucial event of the fall of Jerusalem in 70. There is no hint of the outbreak of the Jewish War in 66 or of serious deterioration of relations between Romans and Jews before that time. There is no hint of the deterioration of Christian relations with Rome during the Neronian persecution of the late 60s. There is no hint of the death of James at the hands of the Sanhedrin in ca. At that time a new phase of conflict began with Christianity. Acts seems to antedate the arrival of Peter in Rome and implies that Peter and John were alive at the time of the writing. The prominence of 'God-fearers' in the synagogues may point to a pre-70 date, after which there were few Gentile inquiries and converts to Jerusalem. Luke gives insignificant details of the culture of an early, Julio-Claudian period. Areas of controversy described presume that the temple was still standing. Adolf Harnack contended that Paul's prophecy in Acts (cf. If so, the book must have appeared before those events. Christian terminology used in Acts reflects an earlier period.

Harnack points to use of always designates 'the Messiah', and is not a proper name for Jesus. The confident tone of Acts seems unlikely during the Neronian persecutions of Christians and the Jewish War with the Rome during the late 60s. The action ends very early in the 60s, yet the description in Acts 27 and 28 is written with a vivid immediacy.

In the United Kingdom, the date is written using the 'DMY' format, for example 21 October 2010 or if abbreviated, a stroke is used to separate numbers, for example 21/10/10 or 21/10/2010.

The time can either be written using 12-hour, for example 4.10pm, or 24-hour notation, for example 16.10.

Only a Being living outside the control of time can consistently reveal the future.

The Gospel of Luke was written by the same author as the Acts of the Apostles, who refers to Luke as the 'former account' of 'all that Jesus began to do and teach' (Acts 1:1).

The destiny ('Theophilus'), style, and vocabulary of the two books betray a common author. The significance of Gallio's judgement in Acts -17 may be seen as setting precedent to legitimize Christian teaching under the umbrella of the tolerance extended to Judaism. The prominence and authority of the Sadducees in Acts reflects a pre-70 date, before the collapse of their political cooperation with Rome. The relatively sympathetic attitude in Acts to Pharisees (unlike that found even in Luke's Gospel) does not fit well with in the period of Pharisaic revival that led up to the council at Jamnia.

Naturalists use 165 BCE as the date of authorship for the book of Daniel. Below are reference web sites that successfully defend that the book of Daniel appears to have been authored in the 6th BCE.

Even if we use 165 BCE as the date of authoring Daniel based on Naturalist bias, Daniel's 70-weeks prophecy contains a very accurate forth telling of the Christian faith. As you review the evidence presented at these web sites, keep in mind that we have shown that Naturalists are biased against the reality of prophecy.

You should not write in the 'dd/mm/yy' format (for example '09/09/15') because you are lengthening the day and month, whilst shortening the year.
