    Harris' Intro to the New Testament

    Stephen Harris is not a credible author for this topic since he is obviously completely bias against the church. At the beginning of the book, I was excited because I thought I was going to gain some understanding of the history of writings; instead, Harris' bias deminished his credibility because he twisted the scriptures and excluded scriptures to convey his hatred and discredit the NT. For example, he states on page 171 that the concept of hell "is absent from the Hebrew bible and most of the New Testament, a few scattered references to it (primarily involving Gehenna or a fiery lake) appear in the Synoptic Gospel and the Book of Revelation". He apparently eighter is deliberately trying to deceive students or he does not know the history of the text because there are many references to hell in the Old and New Testaments. Deuteronomy 32 writes about culture of the Isralites at that time and how they worshipped demons instead of God and furthered made reference to hell. Some other reference in the Old Testament are 2 Sam. 22:6, Ps. 18:5, Ps.55:15, Ps.116:3, Ps.139:8, Prov.15:11, and many more. In addition, Harris states that Matt 5:22, 29-30; 10:28;23:15,33 refers to hell as a geographic location in Jerusalem called Gehenna. This is misleading students because these scriptures does not mention or cite this location Harris reference in his text. His inaccuracy is only one of the major errors in this text. How can students use this material to study the Bible when the author (Harris) is not honest. A writer should not try to discredit the history, but he should report what is there - (the evidence) even if that evidence opposes his personal bias. I strongly reject this book as a student's study of the N.T.
