I found most preachers don't commonly preach out of the minor prophets, but that doesn't make them any less important.

What about the dozens of books that didn't even make it into the Bible? Are they less important? Of course tradition is part of what dictates what is or is not important to a religion... including which parts of the Bible are cherry picked by contemporary preachers and discussed most often.

They are unimportant because, at least in the case of the New Testament apocrypha, they were written, in some cases, centuries after the events of the first century. They're also so Gnostically weird and inconsistent with the rest of the books of the New Testament that they were rarely mentioned by any first- through fourth-century Church fathers as being canonical. So while Christians don't all agree on what belongs in the Old Testament, amazingly enough, all Protestant, Catholic, Orthodox, and Coptic churches agree on the twenty-seven books of the New Testament.

As for cherry-picking by contemporary clergymen, you're spot-on. I've seen the problem go both ways. Either they emphasize the social justice temporal duties of Christianity at the expense of the Gospel, or they neglect loving one's neighbor altogether.

ALL the books of the New Testament were written at least decades and in some cases centuries after the alleged death of Jesus. There are also many inconsistencies even within those texts. But... who got to decide which things should be gospel and canon and which should be considered "gnostically weird?" If one of those excluded texts was in the Bible and some others currently in the Bible were excised... then you would be calling those books weird. The current (rough) agreement by the 4 sects you mention is thanks only to the Council of Nicea, and there are plenty of other sects that don't agree, usually adding additional texts. Plus the Jews have a different list of what's included and what's not, and, as you can see if you follow the link at the top of this page, not even Protestants and Catholics are in full agreement.

Anecdotal aside... I'm in Israel right now. Have been here for a few months. I've visited FIVE different alleged sites of Jesus' baptism, three different alleged sites of where Mary heard she was pregnant, two different alleged sites of Jesus' birth... it's clear that they're just making this stuff up. Have also been to the "tower of David"... which is actually a Mamluk Islamic minaret, and his tomb which is actually the tomb of some wealthy Roman woman. We know for a fact some of these places are not what tradition maintains that they are... but people just want to believe anyway. It's remarkable seeing it up close and in real time. I've also visited the site where Muhammad flew up to heaven, though he was obviously never here, either.

@Kalbahamut..Odd though, that a fictitious person turned the entire world upside down. Odd to imagine that the apostles would willingly go to their deaths for something they know is patently false, a fairy tale they had a hand in writing. The gospel writers would never have portrayed themselves as the dense, simple minded people described in the new testament. Women would never have been written into the "script" as the first to arrive at the tomb charged with the task of going to tell the men. No one's calendar would be dated from his birth, and so on. In my opinion it is harder to believe that he didn't exist than it is to believe that he did. OK I'll stop. :)

Shiloh, fwiw, I also believe that there was a historical Jesus. However, the account(s) of his life in the Bible are obviously and demonstrably fiction. As are the myriad traditions springing forth from them. I mean, clearly, the man could not have been first baptized simultaneously in five different locations. Yet there are at least that many places claiming to be the one. None of the remarkably weak evidence you cite and that I've heard time and again before proves anything. None of the authors of the Bible died for the stories they wrote, so what are you talking about? We don't even know who they were, in most cases. The men who wrote these books were not the disciples that they're named for. They were not martyrs. Further, are you really putting forward that in order for someone to die for a religious belief, then that belief must be true? So you must also believe that the 9/11 hijackers and those fighting and dying for ISIS are on to something as well, right?

How many people have died for belonging to the Ba'hai faith? Or Falun Gong? Those are true religions, too? There are over a billion people who use a calendar that dates from Muhammad's emigration to Yathrib instead of the one that dates to the year 1 (though if Jesus was a real person it is more or less universally agreed that he would have had to have been born at around 3 or 4 BC. The 1 AD date was set in the Middle Ages. We know this for a fact. Nobody died for it. And it obviously wasn't set by someone who had any proof that Jesus was a real person). So does that mean that everything the Quran says about Muhammad is also true? Why does it matter that Jews are sexist and women are unlikely protagonists in the story? In the story of the tortoise and the hare, it's unlikely that the tortoise would win the race. Tortoises are much slower than hares. Does that mean this story is true? Because fictitious stories *only* include events that do not defy expectation?

It would be interesting to know what the life of the real Jesus, should he have existed, was like. But that's impossible. The oldest accounts we have are copies made centuries after he was alleged to have died, of manuscripts written at least decades after the fact, by anonymous sources who never met the man. The thousands of traditions we have accumulated cannot be trusted, and to the unbiased observer, this is plainly true. Just like I can walk through the streets of the old city of Jerusalem and admire the "tower of David"... which we know has absolutely nothing to do with David and is in fact a Muslim minaret built thousands of years later... I can also enter the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and understand that the traditions surrounding it and the events that are said to have taken place there are just as shaky.

Jenkins, stop applauding you look silly. Not long ago I was working as a college professor/corporate trainer/writer/tutor. Currently I am an unemployed vagabond.

For one thing, having more than one of these holy sites is simply because no one wrote down exactly where these things happened, (not to mention people can say it's wherever they want simply to make money) just because that's not what was important. What was important was the events that happened. And if you want solid, tangible proof, then I might ask if you have seen the skeleton of a man with gigantism, reaching over 8 feet tall, who had been killed by a large stone through his forehead, at the exact spot David was rumored to have killed Goliath? And the difference between the Apostles and the 9/11 hijackers was that the Apostles were there. Shiloh's point was that if Jesus was fictional, then the Apostles wouldn't have died for their beliefs, because none of this stuff would've ever happened. Sure there are fakes, and maybe we have no proof on some of these topics, but that's beside the point. Christianity is about faith. Belief in something that may or may not be true.

@Director: yeah. Nobody wrote it down. ::eyeroll:: or... it just never actually happened. Which seems more likely?
And no I have not seen Goliath's skeleton because that doesn't exist. What are you on about? That Internet photo hoax? Nor would the remains of a tall man that died by a blow to the head somewhere in Gaza be at all convincing of this story if it were discovered. That wouldn't prove anything other than sometimes people are tall, and sometimes other people hit them in the head with things. If anyone grabbed on to that and tried to assert that it was proof of the Bible, then I would humbly submit that this i just further proof that people are far too eager to believe in these stories based on nothing. Just how gullible are you?

@big your hope has been fulfilled and I have. I fully believed in the Bible and studied it carefully before I figured out it was total and complete baloney. Have *you* ever closely examined your most deeply held and cherished beliefs and then been forced to admit you were wrong because you had to acknowledge that the evidence supporting your side was simply inferior? If so, then come and talk to me about knowing the truth.

On the subject of admitting I was wrong, I said something above about the Council of Nicea choosing which books to put in the Bible. I misspoke. I meant the council of Trent. Though the Council of Nicea was also important and more evidence that (*obviously*) man has decided what Christians believe, *not* God, it had nothing to do with choosing which books of the Bible to make canon. My mistake.

I got 48/66, definitely need more time for this one... there are a LOT of books to remember and it really isn't that easy to remember them all... I think for Song of Solomon it should be acceptable to put Song of Songs, or Songs of Solomon, or Songs of Songs. Because that was frustrating and I couldn't get it right, so I missed that one. All the minor prophets were hard too.. there were soooo many of them! hahaha. can't believe how many i missed in the new testament as well.. I should have got that. But I don't work well under pressure. and I never learned the song at Sunday school, as I didn't become a christian until later... still wanna learn that one! haha

Pagan holidays have been celebrated on that date since long before Christianity was a thing. And since Christianity, as we know it today, is basically a Jewish death/apocalypse/personality cult co-opted and culturally appropriated by Romans to be a very Roman religion, and Romans were pagans, this is a very likely explanation. But we don't know 100% for sure. read

We just don't know the date of Jesus birth, and the early Christians were not very interested on it. It's not recorded any of the gospels or early church writings, who only focused in celebrating Easter. We can safely infer, though, that he was not born in winter, because the shepherds were sleeping in the open (Luke 2:8). Christians start celebrating Jesus birth by the third century AD. To place the birth of a saviour in the winter solstice fits nicely, as it is the "darker" point of the year and from then the days begin to get longer. For this reason, it was also the day chosen by many other religions to commemorate the birth of some of their gods.

According to the bible, Jesus was murdered when he was 33 and 1/2 years old. Since his arrest was effected sometime after he celebrated the last supper (Passover dinner) with his apostles, and as the Passover is always celebrated in either later March or early April, counting six months from April would bring us to October. Thus, it is likely that Jesus was born sometime in October, while it was still warm enough for the shepherds to be out in the field with their flock.
