      The testimony of Eusebius that Hegesippus "lived immediately after the
      apostles" is hopelessly incorrect if the date I have found on the internet
      for the his birth (110 CE) is to be believed. This date has Hegesippus born
      40 or 50 years after the death of the apostles. By my reckoning this makes
      his writings at least 30 years after Acts, which I take to have been written
      ca. 100 CE. I can see no reason to trust the testimony of Hegesippus if it
      contradicts what we can deduce from Galatians, Mark and Acts.
