...with the actual history of Christianity and the compilation of the Bible?
I don't think I'll be of much help with this question because I don't believe the bible was written to be taken so literally .. i think people take it so literally because they don't bother to question and think for themselves. I don't even think most Christians understand the time period it was written in and don't bother to look into it. To them it just simply is the word of God and that is it. I believe the bible is Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth .. like a guide book. When you purchase a guide book on vacation do you go to all the places or just pick out as many as you have time for? do you relive the events that took place or just read the quick version and move on? A bible is a tool to learn not something to memorize and regurgitate.

the lack of mention of significant incidents in Jesus's life--or events that occured in the Bible--being mentioned in either Roman records or the Talmud I'm going to tell you this--- my God wouldn't let anything be included unless it is necessary for our salvation. He wouldn't allow anything necessary to be excluded either. These things are accepted by faith, my relationship with my LORD is fact. I KNOW what He has done for me. You can debate the logic of Christianity all you want, but there is something about Jesus that continues to draw people to Him.

The fact that Jesus' life seems to be nonexistent from the time he was 13 till the time he's 30'ish. The fact that he does a lot of teaching, but little of what he says is actually recorded (in the Bible)...
His acts and teachings couldn't all fit into a book any more than every act I've committed could. His much more so, as He is GOD.
John 21:25~~And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.
