Quote from: Ecurb Noselrub on October 21, 2020, 05:00:02 PMIt is still held by many that Shakespeare did not exist or did not write what he wrote. Same for Homer. Me, I generally take it as it has come down to us, acknowledging that we will never know exactly what or who happened.

Quote from: billy rubin on November 05, 2020, 02:52:05 PM2 esdras identifiez the author, but protestants reject it1 The second booke of the Prophet Esdras the sonne of Saraias, the sonne of Azarias, the sonne of Helchias, the sonne of Sadamias, the sonne of Sadoc, the sonne of Achitob,2 The sonne of Achias, the sonne of Phinees, the sonne of Heli, the sonne of Amarias, the sonne of Aziei, the sonne of Marimoth, the sonne of Arna, the sonne of Ozias, the sonne of Borith, the sonne of Abisei, the sonne of Phinees, the sonne of Eleazar,3 The sonne of Aaron, of the Tribe of Leui, which was captiue in the land of the Medes, in the reigne of Artaxerxes king of the Persians.4 And the word of the Lord came vnto me, saying, 2 esdras is an apocolypze like the revelation, which identifies the author as john. the prophetic books generally identify the prophet. some of the psalms identify david as the author.its the NT that gets mostly vague. i find the gospels interesting becauze they only ascribe authorship by tradition. the eyewitnesses all wrote in the third person apparently and did not directly identify themselves."the disciple that jezus loved . . . " and so on.
