“The longer the gap between the start of an oral tradition and the time its information is finally written down, the more unreliable that information is. Personal experience shows us just how garbled facts can become when a single person or day comes between us and an incident, let alone many people or months. In the case of the Bible, hundreds of years seem to have come between the incidents related in the Old Testament and the time they were written down. Decades elapsed between the time Jesus lived and the time the four Gospels were written.”
