In the case of the new testament?7) Are the documents self-consistent or consistent with other documentation that report the same event?
A resounding **no**.
One of many reasons why the bible cannot possibly be Divine in any way-- too many inconsistencies.
Example: name the players who attended Jesus tomb, on Easter.
Can you do this?
No-- in the examples where this Wild Tale is told, the players are radically different.
Different people attend.
That's a pretty glaring contradiction right there.
The last words of Jesus, right before he dies.
What are they?
Answer: contradiction again!
