Nevertheless many extinct languages are in effect purely written, since the written form is all that survives.

 Wasn't the New Testament written hundreds of years after Christ?
Though some say that the New Testament was written 100-300 years after Christ died, the truth is that it was written before the close of the first century by those who either knew Christ personally, had encountered him, or were under the direction of those who were His disciples.
