Bible - Jesus in the Old Testament  

According to Christians, Old Testament prophecies were fulfilled by Jesus Christ in the New Testament

Identifying the New Testament (NT) authors can help determine this claim. Who wrote the NT, and is it possible, Jesus was 'inserted' into the text to make the NT appear more authentic, credible and acceptable to new Jewish-Christian converts?

1 New Testament (NT) Was God-Inspired
NT authors were 'inspired' by God to write His words, independent of the OT. Most traditional Christians hold this view.

2 New Testament (NT) Copied Old Testament (OT)
NT authors copied OT verses and edited them to fit the Jesus narrative. The NT was written by 'anonymous' authors many years after Jesus' crucifixion. A few modern Bible scholars hold this view.
