Dating the Acts from II° CE thanks Eusebius

Post by Giuseppe » Sun Mar 22, 2020 2:22 am

Eusebius says that the synods were created in 160 CE the first time against Montanus's heresy.

Acts 15 knows already the synods:

The whole assembly became silent as they listened to Barnabas and Paul telling about the signs and wonders God had done among the Gentiles through them.

Hence Acts was written around 160 CE.
Nihil enim in speciem fallacius est quam prava religio. -Liv. xxxix. 16.
