D., using Irenaeus as the primary source, name one commentary which cites all three of Irenaeus’ relevant quotes concerning the dating of John's Revelation to justify its date. The noted author, and Christian Lecturer-Evangelist, Josh Mc Dowell, in “Evidence That Demands A Verdict” and “He Walked Among Us” (San Bernardino: Here’s Life Publishers © 1972, 1988, respectively) points even the casual lay person to 3 points of interest in considering the N. Dating.1) Over 40 years ago, William Foxwell Albright dared to tell the world, in 1963, that all the books of the New Testament were written no later than the 80’s A. “…The blessed Apostle Paul, following the rule of his predecessor John, writes to no more than 7 Churches by name, in this order: 1) to the Corinthians, 2) to the Ephesians, 3) to the Philippians, 4) to the Colossians, 5) to the Galatians, 6) to the Thessalonians, 7) to the Romans.
