    atheists claim that the gospels are fiction, or myth. One specific argument they present is that the authors of the gospels actually intended for them to be read as fiction. This idea however, seems not only to be a bit far fetched, but also lacking substantial evidence for it. Parallels can be seen all throughout the world; some are related while others are merely an accidental byproduct. Dennis MacDonald, a member of the Jesus Seminar, “argues that the Gospel of Mark, upon which he believes…

    of Jesus, specifically in the Gospel of Mark, He is called many different names. We know from Angel Gabriel’s appearance to Mary that He is the Son of God, but there is a deeper message. Having been raised Roman Catholic and attended a Catholic school since pre-k, I have always had my times where I doubted who Jesus truly was.
