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.
