I may not be dating the church anymore (wink at Josh Harris), but I have continued my study on the New Testament and the historical dating of when the Scriptures were written.
I just came across a fascinating video series,by Xorosater, that attempts to answer when the New Testament Scriptures were written. I like the series because the video clips are short, but very helpful in illustrating the difficulties of finding consistent evidence that the New Testament writings we have today are actually from the first century.
When I first started reading writings from the early church (over 12 years ago), I was fascinated by the diversity and a little unsettled at how much they actually muddled the water about the authority of the Bible and which books should be considered scripture and which ones should not.
If this is a topic that interests you, check it out and let me know what you think. I still am a huge geek about the history of the early church and love the complexity and implications of this time period.
