Issues with John
John, as well as the Johannine epistles, belong to the post-apostolic period (90-150 AD) and are likely a product of the early 2nd century. John cannot be regarded as historically accurate as it exhibits clear inconsistencies with the Synoptic gospels, it’s contested authorship and devised structure. It is not until sometime after 140-170 AD that text from the forth gospel starts to be referenced in the writings of early Christian apologists. The issues of the Fourth Gospel in contrast to the synoptic gospels are documented. Critical Scholarship with quotes, references, and excerpts are provided regarding John. Contradictions of John with the Synoptics are documented on the Contradictions of John page. Embellishments of John with respect to the Synoptic Gospels are also documented.
