"The sources of church history, the data on which we rely for our knowledge, are partly divine, partly human. For the history of the apostolic age, until about A.D. 68 or 69, we have the inspired writings of the Old and New Testaments. But after the death of the apostles we have only human authorities, which of course cannot claim to be infallible. We will follow the chronological record of events, dates, places and persons involved from the infancy of John the Baptist to the Death of John. This is the period dating from B.C. 4 or 5 to the Death of The Apostle John which happened in a period between A.D. 98-100.
