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.
