      Bob, we know that the gospels, canonical and extracanonical, attribute
      events and sayings to Jesus that are obvious inventions. It does not
      follow from that every word of the gospels is invented. Brian asked how
      likely it was that the gospel writers would invent/borrow things and
      attribute them to Jesus, and the answer is 100% likely, because we know
      it happened. The gospel writers made up stories and attributed them to
      Jesus, perhaps not every one.
