    I don’t understand how the oral stories that lead to the gospels could have changed so much if they were being told and passed down by Jewish preachers who committed themselves to memorizing it, please explain

      That’s the subject of my entire book Jesus Before the Gospels. The story tellers decidedly did not memorize the stories.

    Speaking of being full, I noticed that the new testament scriptures frequently Reference old testament scripture passages.
    The New Testament authors were highly educated being fluent and expert in Greek and Jewish scriptures. Developing and justifying the new Christian theology Independently by different authors in Different locations without Supervision is really quite amazing. Do you agree?

      I don’t think it’s amazing they used the Jewish Scriptures to inform their understanding of Jesus — as Jews, that’s the kind of thing they simply would have done. It would have been amazing if they did so and independently came to the same conclusions!
