If Jesus never wrote anything why is the New Testament the basis of Christianity?


If Paul wrote 2/3 of the New Testament is Christianity not a Pauline invention since Jesus wrote none of it?

    This is an interesting take on the subject. I am not a disbeliever in reincarnation, but I can see your point and respect your perspective. Being a Christian, I accept the truth that Jesus is a resurrected being who plans to return and claim kingdom.

    But God does want us to read the bible. He has important messages in there for us like the ten commandments. The words of Jesus are profound and if we are to live by these words we have to know what they are. Just my two cents.

    @tsmog, I see a simpler question of why the New Testament is the basis of Christianity while pondering the egg and the chicken or a haiku poem and an image becoming a Haiga poem. ... Why not post it?? Too simple for you right?

    I believe I understand. I ponder Luke 6:12 offering knowledge Jesus Prayed all night? By whose witness? And, 6:15 foreknowledge to the reader of a act of later at the time of choosing that person of that act - Judas. A spoiler? Version vs. Text?

    @TheDwet, You can't be serious. Do you need attention that much? How in Heaven's Light did you reach such a conclusion; that my question somehow was directed toward you. But, you weren't the only one to go off the deep end on this one. You need Jesus

    Good points. Marco Polo never wrote his tales. They were written by a fellow prisoner whose name I cannot even remember. But we remember "Marco Polo" about whom the tale is told
