Why Doesn't Paul Quote Jesus? (While Every Other "Early" Christian Writer Does)

Theoretically, it isn’t necessary to argue with Christian apologists about the historicity of Jesus, because their position is self-refuting. They base the reliability of the Gospels upon their supposed early date, or the early date of their ‘sources’, yet they also claim that Paul was writing too early to be aware of any written Gospels, which is why he never corroborates any of the stories from them. 1,175 more words

The Lost Writing of Jesus

“A teacher selects a pupil, but a book does not select its readers, who may be wicked or stupid; this Platonic mistrust persists in the words of Clement of Alexandria, a man of pagan culture: “The most prudent course is not to write but to learn and teach by word of mouth, because what is written remains” (Stromateis), and in the same treatise: “To write all things in a book is to put a sword in the hands of a child,” which derives from the Gospels: “Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.” That sentence is from Jesus, the greatest of oral teachers, who only once wrote a few words on the ground, and no man read what He had written.” 8 more words
