If Christ had written his teachings, would the interpretation differ?

    Jesus Christ (Hebrew name is Joshua) possessed the skill of a scribe and composed his teachings in written form, hence the New Testament, would Christianity be different historically as well as today? Keep in mind those writers of the New Testament who had interpreted Christ's words and incorporated their own judgements into what Christ had stated.

      Probably not.  The bishops and VIP's that assembled the bible put their own interpretations into the writings centuries after the original authors died.  No reason to think they would not have done the same thing with Christ's writings.

      It's highly doubtful that they would be. Working under the assumption that His work would not have been destroyed if they had been found, his words would likely have been written in Hebrew and as such subject to being translated and retranslated over the years as language progressed.
