Canon Of The Bible
According to The Da Vinci Code, the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John were included in the Bible only because they supported the agenda of the Church leaders at the Council of Nicea. Furthermore, it is claimed that these Gospels are historically unreliable (pgs. 233-235).
The canonical Gospels easily meet all the tests for historical reliability.
First, since they were all composed before the end of the first century, they were written very close to the time of the events they record.
Second, they were so widely disseminated that we have literally thousands of copies of them, allowing us to affirm the accuracy of their transmission.
Third, though they were written by different authors for different audiences, they are internally consistent, providing a harmonious account of the events surrounding Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection.
- Fourth, they are externally consistent, with many of their historical claims corroborated by extra-biblical sources.
