Four More Historical Champions

To the chorus of those who assert that Matthew was written within a decade of the resurrection and ascension, I have added four more voices: Samuel Ellwood (1709), Samuel Humphreys (1746), Thomas Horne (1825), and Arthur Carr (1898). An extended excerpt from Horne has been included, which provides a nice summary of dates which were advocated by scholars at the time, and evaluates both external and internal evidence. The other three authors don’t add much that is new to the dating debate, other than to demonstrate that there was a substantive number of authors since the 1600s who held to an early date.
