Jat robinson redating the new testament

Augustine tells us Matthew was written in Hebrew, and Tresmontant through the tool of retroversion(Greek back to Hebrew) demonstrates the Hebrew substrate of Matthew.Robert Geis in two of his works "Divinity of a Birth" and "Exegesis and the Synoptics" does a masterful job of filling out further Tresmontant's thesis, showing the bias in current exegesis and through his own mastery of Hebrew giving additional sure footing to Tresmontant's thesis.

Christianity is centred on the person of Jesus Christ.

John’s Gospel goes on to describe Jesus’ miraculous ‘signs’ and his heart-searching words that testified to His true identity as ‘the Christ’.

The Gospel ends with the words, ‘Jesus performed many other signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book.

"Thus Robinson accepts the reality of the God of the theists but has challenged our perceptions of who that God is (or where that God dwells)....

"The close marrying of God with ethics, morality and compassion leads one to emphasise this world rather than anything beyond this world.

The qualifications and authority of the author are obvious.

It's a book devoted to discovering the Hebrew that just might lie behind the Greek words of the gospels we now have. If you believe, as I do, that the gospels were written before the destruction of the Temple, the book will be eloquent for you in expressing this view and very logical in laying out the basis for it as well.Father Geis calls the current exegesis community "a cottage industry of Enlightenment prejudices." There is also Carmignac's fine work demonstrating the Hebrew original of Matthew, and it is a welcome complement to Tresmontant.For sure these works will not get the coverage they demand because they so effectively demonstrate the nonsense methodologies au courant in New Testament studies.John Robinson was born in Canterbury, England, the son of a Canon of the Cathedral.He read the classics and theology at Cambridge, and then entered Westcott House to prepare for ordination. He was summoned to Woolwich where he taught at Wells Theological College and then he moved to Clare College, Cambridge, where he became Dean in 1951.His first book, In the End, God, was published in 1950.
