Composed by eyewitnesses…

The bibliographical, internal and external evidence tests confirm the following: that the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John were composed by eyewitnesses on top of the events they record, that these works have a manuscript tradition that simply dwarfs any other works of antiquity, that they carry the evidence of internal consistency and personal attestation, and that they are supported by the soundest of external evidence from archeology.
