Anyone who has even a rudimentary grasp of Greek knows that ‘James’ did not write the Book of James. Rather, it was Ya’acov, or Jacob. The name wasn’t changed to James until the 16th century if I am not mistaken. Typical tampering by scribes, but we’ve talked about that before.
So, yesterday I was not overly surprised when a friend stated that the Gospel of John was not written by John, but has rather been mis-attributed to him by church fathers. Still, I wanted to look into it deeper, so I asked them to send me a link for consideration.
The following article is long, but I find it compelling and worthy of further study. Understanding a change of authorship in no way undermines the content, however it continues to bring into question the traditions we have been given by our fathers. Please take the time to read and consider this information and then post up comments and thoughts after processing!
