Jesus – The Imaginary Friend

Forget the fairy story. Many currents fed the Jesus myth, like streams and tributaries joining to form a major river. As Christianity cut its way through the centuries it became a very murky and dangerous torrent, sweeping away civilizations and all who stood in its way.

What DID the Early Christians Believe?
The Invention of Orthodoxy
Before 110 AD - Gospels unknown & uncited. A 'sayings' document probably exists. c.130 AD Papias writes a paragraph in a six-book work mentioning that the 'teachings' of Peter, recorded by Mark, and 'reports' by Matthew in Aramaic had been written, although apparently he doesn't trust them. c.140 AD - Marcion's proto-gospel appears. He attaches Paul's letters to an early version of 'Luke'. c.150 AD - Justin refers to several 'memoirs of the apostles' (i.e. gospels). c.172 AD - From dozens of contending stories, 'official' gospels numbered as 4. c.180 AD - Gospels finally given names.
