Re: The Gospel of Marcion Cannot Have Been Derived from the Gospel of Mark

4. The Hebrew Matthew that Jerome translated and said was used by Nazarenes was the Hebrew Matthew that Papias mentions. IIRC, Jerome made the claim to have "translated" Hebrew Mattthew, but you'll be pressed to find much in the way of quotations. I think the only thing he ever cites is one pericop...

Re: Did Irenaeus identify John with Jesus without knowing it?

Nasruddin,

I think he is making a distinction between a first generation apostle appointed by Jesus, or a disciple from his immediate circle, named John, and John the Elder from the 2nd generation of Jesus people.

Re: Why the Gnostics wanted that the Jews abandoned YHWH

G, I'm not sure why you defined Gnostics as "haters of YHWH." I think that all "big G" Gnostics had convinced themselves that the physical world was far inferior to the world of pure ideas, which was full of goodness, with the world of ideas and fullness having divine principals that were much super...

Re: Why 1 Cor 11:23-26 is an interpolation

ok John2, i recant. on reflection i think you're right i think as you say the bread reference may refer to the church and be an early witness to a more original eucharistic blessing Wheat was often used as a symbol. Ignatius, Ep. to the Romans, 4: 1b Suffer me to become food for the wild beasts, th...

Re: The Ploughman's Lunch fallacy.

I noticed that the ladies dresses seemed "French" and that the picknic basket held a bottle of wine, not a pail of beer. The lady is handing the smiling plowman a bag, which could contain any type foods, really. There are indentations in the dirt that suggest modern traction engines were in use, so ...

Re: Who is John Mark?

But what exactly was Marcion's gospel? That has never been clear to me. I know it was thought to have been a corrupted Luke in patristic sources, but there are arguments against that. And I recall seeing examples of other gospels besides Luke in reconstructions of Marcion's gospel. So this one seem...

Re: 1 Clement

Did you mean Justin Martyr? IIRC, he did not cite Pauline letters, although I think there were 2-3 proposed allusions, although weak ones. Some time ago I presented Seth Ehorn's case for Justin's knowledge and use of Paul based on his modified quotations from scripture. (I am not sure of this argum...

Re: 1 Clement

This shows at the very least that someone in the second century wanted to believe that the Roman church had preeminence in the first century. And that's quite incredible. We don't know whether Justin Martyr had access to the Paulina, an "orthodox" canon did not exist until 180 AD (?), yet the autho...
