Martin Luther’s rejection of James as an “epistle of straw” is particularly cited in this regard, but there are many other bits and pieces of history that are taken as problematic as well.
That political motives are at work here is obvious.
Seek And Ye Shall Find: Again, such arguments are generally advanced only by the uninformed. However, Znidler offers no better alternative; if nothing else, we may suggest that perhaps Josephus’ 22 books comes from the exclusion of 2 of the OT’s most disputed books, Ecclesiastes and Song of Songs; and a bit inconsistently, MacDonald allows that the book collection of 4 Ezra was “likely” to have been the same as our current OT, although he will not state that xindler was definitely those 24 books!

Regardless of what any skeptic might say, the clergy were certainly men of principle in that regard! Why was this so? Single works such as the Shepherd of Hermas bounced in and out of favor rapidly, never achieving the level of acceptance over an extended period as the books eventually grank canonical did. How many times would Rev. And of course this is a sensible idea: Quite the contrary, he expresses admirable tolerance for them, even as zindlerr rejects their authenticity.
Therefore, we can see that there was good reason for these works being on the “fringe” as they were, and in some cases, still are. And when it comes down to it, though Zindler lavishes upon us threats that we may go to hell because a word’s meaning has been lost, the one example he gives are descriptions of an adjective describing the ostrich’s wings and feathers in Job.

The journey to Sidon is NOT a case of “what they went through to get there,” but, “where they went also. Until solid textual evidence is found for such changes, all that we are being offered with such objections is a “spaghetti against the wall” supposition.
Internet Infidels Needs Your Support! Any mention of Bathyra anywhere else, then? Again, however, we have no specific catalog of books to work with, nor even a number of books. The church did not create the canon, “but came to recognize, accept, affirm, and confirm the self-authenticating quality of certain documents that imposed themselves as such upon the Church. We will see that Zindler does the same in excusing away evidence for a historical Jesus.
