    No ones knows who actually wrote the scrolls referred to as the book of Mark and Acts and most believe that biblical scrolls were written long before Greek Mythology.

    Could have been since the people who wrote the NT were leading members of the Roman government.

    No. Though the uneducated would like to pretend that it's true.

    I don't think so, , imo, one thing is sure , if the authors knew the original apostles, then they were inspire by the gospel, and since many do believe the gospel of mark was written the first century, it might be the most basic truth

    No.  And no one "wrote" myths.

    Every claim of christianity was from some earlier mythology or other.

    There is not a single thing about christianity that is original.  Even their good/bad guy Jesus is just a fictional copy of some earlier fictional character, or several as it were.

    A - Not as far as we know

    and

    B - Homer wasn't really "a writer for ancient Greek mythology". Rather: he employed certain aspects of ancient Greek mythology (which wasn't ancient to him) in his poetry...as have very, very many poets over the centuries.

    No.  They were accounts of Jesus' life and the things the apostles did after His resurrection.

      It's a well established fact  that Jesus existed.  You just sound foolish saying that.
