Dating of the gospels
However, the Bible does describe three kinds of relationships with the opposite sex and gives certain characteristics of each relationship (there are others such as parent/child and sibling, but they don't clarify the issues of dating).
One kind of relationship the Bible describes is friendship.
Begotten means "come from" without necessarily being created. What is His name, and what is Cyril of Alexandria (376-444 AD) says, Indeed, the mystery of Christ runs the risk of being disbelieved precisely because it is so incredibly wonderful. He who was above all creation was in our human condition; the invisible one was made visible in the flesh; he who is from the heavens and from on high was the likeness of earthly things; the immaterial one could be touched; he who is free in his own nature came in the form of a slave; he who blesses all creation became accursed; he who is all righteousness was numbered among the transgressors; life itself came in the appearance of death.
Prov.17: 17 says, “A friend loves at all times.” Prov.18: 24 says, “There is a friend that sticks closer than a brother.” Prov.27: 6 says, “When a friend rebukes you, that rebuke can be trusted.” Prov.27: 9 says, “The pleasantness of having a friend springs from his earnest counsel.” Prov.27: 10 says, “Do not forsake your friend.” These verses bring out the fact that the Lord blesses friendship and encourages us to develop them.
Sad to say, some Scripture scholars would have us believe that the only thing we can know for certain is that Jesus existed.
Even the pagan Roman historians could tell us that. Therefore, to answer this question we must be clear on how the Gospels were formed and what constitutes authorship.
Also, in our culture, through "dating" people will often find a life partner and marry.
How men and women view a "date" and "dating" can have a profound effect on their future.
