Not all of them.


Well that ALSO really depends on exactly when the Historical Jesus story was first authored and then circulated for the edification of the Roman Empire. Serious evidence for this appears in the 4th and 5th century with the earliest Greek bible codices (Alexandrinus, Vaticanus, Sinaiticus).

The world's community of Biblical Historians use church dogma to date these relics.
None of these codices have been C14 dated. Why is that? Is it 2019?
What C14 did for the Shroud it can also do for the earliest Bibles.


Just dropping this here.

Exclusive: 'Dead Sea Scrolls' at the Museum of the Bible are all forgeries

Months of testing confirm earlier suspicions that the fragments were made in modern times. What happens next?
