What is one contribiution sargon the great made to society?
Sarkon's achievements are shrouded in myths and legends, and little to nothing of the achievements or contributions to society attributed to him is based on established facts. But if the legends are to be believed, he was the first king to outgrow being only a local potentate and to establish an organized central government over a number of multi-ethnic countries.

Did Paul write 15 Epistles?
No. Thirteen epistles have been written by him or in his name. Hebrews was also attributed to Paul at one stage, but this is too clearly neither an epistle not a work of Paul. Of the thirteen episltes actually attributed to Paul, scholars believe that seven were written by Paul himself. These are Romans, 1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians, Philemon, Galatians, Philippians and 1 Thessalonians. Based on a computer analysis of the epistles attributed to Paul, A.Q. Morton believes that Philippians and 1 Thessalonians are not genuine, leaving just five genuine epistles. On the other hand, the Second Epistle to the Corinthians is thought to contain parts of at least three original epistles consolidated together.
Asked in New Testament
Did Saint Matthew write the first gospel?
No. Scholars have demonstrated that Mark's Gospel was written first, and that Matthew's Gospel was partly based on the contents of Mark's Gospel. Matthew's Gospel was originally written anonymously and only attributed to St Matthew later in the second century. However, scholars say that Matthew could not have been written by an eyewitness to the events it portrays. The disciple Matthew did not write any of the gospels.

Asked in New Testament
What is the oldest book in the New Testament?
A: New Testament scholars are generally agreed that Mark is the oldest of the four New Testament gospels, written around 70 CE. This view is supported by evidence that the other gospels are based, directly (Matthew, Luke) or indirectly (John) on Mark. The Epistles of Paul would be older than the four gospels, although scholars do not believe that all the epistles attributed to Paul were actually written by him or even in his lifetime. The earliest of Paul's epistles could be 1 Thessalonians, which is possibly the oldest book in the New Testament. Perhaps even older than the Pauline epistles is the Epistle to the Hebrews. Some scholars believe that Hebrews could be the oldest book in the New Testament, because they say that the view of Christianity in Hebrews is more primitive than in other books of the New Testament.

What is a sayings gospel?
A: The four New Testament gospels are examples of narrative gospels, as they tell a narrative, or story, about the life and mission of Jesus. A sayings gospel is one that contains little or no narrative, but describes sayings attributed to Jesus. It is typical of sayings gospels that there is no reference to the crucifixion of Jesus. Some scholars believe there were two very early strands of Christian faith. One was based on sayings and teachings attributed to Jesus, but with no tradition of the crucifixion and mission of Christ. The other strand being based around a a dying and resurrected Christ, without a sayings tradition. Two sayings gospels, the Gospel of Thomas and the hypothetical 'Q' Gospel, are believed to have been among the very earliest gospels ever written.
Which New Testament letters are attributed to St. Paul or one of his disciples?
Romans, 1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians, Philemon, Galatians, Philippians, 1 Thessalonians, 2 Thessalonians, Colossians, Ephesians, 1 Timothy, 2 Timothy and Titus are traditionally attributed to Paul. Most scholars believe that Romans, 1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians, Philemon, Galatians, Philippians and 1 Thessalonians were written by Paul himself. Based on a computer analysis of the epistles attributed to Paul, A.Q. Morton believes that Philippians and 1 Thessalonians are not genuine, but this is a monority view. Colossians, Ephesians, 2 Thessalonians, 1 Timothy, 2 Timothy and Titus, and possibly Philippians and 1 Thessalonians, were written in the name of Paul, probably by his disciples or successors.
