Re: "Nile shipwreck discovery proves Herodotus right – after 2,469 years"

Yeah I saw that. But is there any history of people thinking that Herodotus was lying about these ships? I believe the article said that dismissal of the truthfulness of Herodotus' account was the prevailing position until recently. I have a book on Herodotus as a Historian and my recollection is t...

Re: No Christology in the Q community

Philo of Alexandria wrote that in his day there were many Jews in Asia Minor. (Don’t have time to find the specific citation). That's in Philo, On the Embassy to Gaius , 33.245 "... vast numbers of Jews scattered over every city of Asia ..." and 36.281 "...of Judea ... the colonies it has sent out ...

Re: No Christology in the Q community

DCHindley, I am very surprised about how much you put into Q2 for Kloppenborg. I will look again at my copy of Excavating Q: The History and Setting of the Sayings Gospel and the notes I have made and come back with a fuller response tomorrow. Well, I'm sure I pieced it together from sources, which...

Re: No Christology in the Q community

If my memory is not faulty, Kloppenborg, in The Formation of Q: Trajectories in Ancient Wisdom Collections (1987 & later editions), had noted that the sayings in the material common to the Gospels of Matthew & Luke was basically of the type that was common to pagan wisdom saying collections of the A...

Re: Question regarding the Hebrew in Exodus 15

My understanding is that Elohim, the plural of El (god), has been used of the Judean God by Judeans since ancient times. I'm pretty sure that there has been a thread on the subject here, in the context of how the Canaanite god, El, got married to a female god. In time, this married pair of Gods morp...

Re: Did Paul know Jesus?

Dont know what happened to your original message above. Maybe you pulled it once you realized this was a can of worms. :scratch: I deleted it for no particular reason. Ahh, no sweat. I can be wordy, but a lot of that had been created around 1997 and updated in 2003, and again parts have been period...

Re: Did Paul know Jesus?

What this has-to-be-wrong hypothesis does is bracket off material that relate to Christ myth theology. The verses under scrutiny in this thread (1 Cor. 2:2; 2 Cor. 5:16) have been underlined (for whatever reason I cannot select a color). What this demonstrates is that the Christ myth interpolator h...

Re: Did Paul know Jesus?

In 1 Corinthians 2:2 Paul says he knew nothing except Jesus and him crucified. . . Perhaps 2 Corinthians 5:16 relates to this verse. 2 Corinthians 5:16 (Young's Literal Translation) So that we henceforth have known no one according to the flesh, and even if we have known Christ according to the fle...

Regarding the Great Bookshelf Collapse, upon further research this event has become third in it’s historical importance after the Destruction of the Library of Caesarea. In this library the Hexapla was allegedly developed comparing six version of the OT. The Hexapla project is currently underway in...
