Ed Babinski writes:
"Lastly, Augustine and Basil are 4th century CE. At least 800 years or more after the OT was composed and formalized. Even several hundred years after the NT was composed."
We're making progress.
I have to admit, though, that placing the New Testament "several hundred years" before Basil is even earlier than the most conservative scholarship I've seen. Maybe Ed thinks the New Testament was written in prophetic anticipation. So, Romans was written before Paul's birth, but as if from Paul's perspective. That's a fascinating position to take on the origin of the New Testament, and it's one I hadn't considered before. I still have some doubts, but I have to give Ed credit for at least thinking outside the usual skeptical box.
