Re: The date of 2 Thessalonians.

I think we cannot rule out, assuming original letters that had been edited by a later (re-)publisher (as I do), you can have both 1) references that only make sense if the temple was still standing, and 2) others that mock Judeans and their sacrificial system, which suggests that the temple sacrific...

Re: Who is 'the Teacher of Righteousness"?

DCH (apologies to both SA & BCS for the silly connection, made for the purpose of making a little fun at the phenomenon of "parallelomania" in bib crit. I personally have been spared, although my forehead seems to be getting bigger over the ages, which I am pretty sure is not due to my head being o...

Re: Any theories as to who Marcus Pompeius is?

There is certainly something amiss here. Justin's First Apology is typically dated to roughy 155-160 ad, with Dialogue making casual reference to it. Yet the discourse contained therein is written to have taken place ca. 135-145 ad. Indeed, in chapter 80, Justin tells of Trypho his intent of record...

Re: Who is 'the Teacher of Righteousness"?

At least with Trumpism the underlying irrationality and appeal to disinformation can be explained as only a tool for something more core to human behavior (racism, sexism, greed, resentment, hatred of humanity, undesirable people who can't get laid etc). That I get. Will to power, the big lie - we'...

Re: Let the reader understand... Again

I do not think we can treat this "little apocalypse" (Mark 13) as virgin words of Jesus. I disagree with much of what you posted in the second column of your table, but with this opening statement I agree wholeheartedly. The Simon bar Giora/Ger stuff? No, mainly the stuff that equates, especially w...

Re: Let the reader understand... Again

I do not think we can treat this "little apocalypse" (Mark 13) as virgin words of Jesus. There is all sorts of evidence that suggests that the accounts were developed from earlier sources that in turn also exhibit signs dating them to after Jesus' death. We are already a generation or more form Jesu...

Re: Irenaeus on Galatians 2:1 ... "again" present or missing?

So we definitely don't have a Greek copy AH 3.13.3, right? My understanding is that there are Greek fragments of AH but none from this book. Harvey's edition of the book is online (I think you would actually have to download it from www.archive.org) and it will show you every Greek fragment, more o...
