Worth A Few Minutes

Go read Tabletalk Magazine's piece, "The Gospel of Reality", by Gene Veith.

It contrasts the four legitimate Gospels against the inventions the media likes to hype, such as the Gospel of Judas. An excerpt:

The actual Gospels underscore the difference. Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John are realistic histories. They are not written in poetry — as were the mythic accounts of Homer and Virgil — but in prose, a style used for history. As C.S. Lewis has observed, if the Gospels are fictional, that would be a miracle in itself, since that kind of realistic prose fiction would not be invented for sixteen centuries."
