IF the NT were a false document, i would have been proven false and abolished before the end of the second century.
manuscripts of the new testament date back to the year 100.
not even 70 years after the events described. to say that the new testament is entirely or even mostly false would be the same as saying that today we could write that the holocaust never happened and that hitler was a generous german leader and everyone would accept it without opposition.
if the new testament were false, the jews and other non-christians would have opposed the stories and had them destroyed rather than re-written (almost 15,000 times, more than any other peice of ancient literature) and widely distributed.
if you believe it was all made up, then test this. write a book about WWII and omit the holocaust and hitler's hatred of the jews. if it becomes widely accepted, then you may be right.
