Re: BeDuhn's & Klinghardt's solutions to the Synoptic Problem

What MrMacSon said: Jason Beduhn and Matthias Klinghardt both presently propose that 'Marcion's Gospel' preceded both Marcion and Luke and was, in fact, the earliest Gospel written. However, here is what BeDuhn says in the article you quoted: The agreement between Klinghardt and myself that Marcion’...

Re: Trypho Says Christians Invented Their Christ?

"I approve of your other remarks, and admire the eagerness with which you study divine things; but it were better for you still to abide in the philosophy of Plato, or of some other man, cultivating endurance, self-control, and moderation, rather than be deceived by false words, and follow the opin...

Re: Is the lack of demons in OT unusual?

Stefan, Let's not import too much of our own worldview when interpreting theirs. Mainly the Jewish scriptures speak of angels who have some powers on the authority of the one (God) who sends them. It speaks very little about how physical changes (weather, illnesses, etc.) occur. While the pagan worl...

Re: Is it Fair to Say that Joseph of Arimathea Was Introduced to Prove the Empty Tomb Was Miraculous?

I think Joseph of Arimathea = Josephus Bar Mathea = Flavius Josephus, and the entire story is a fictionalized drama spun off of the real event wherein Josephus asked for three crucified friends to be cut down, and one lived while the other two died. Someone (John2 perhaps?) posted this connection h...

Re: Jesephus (sic) - hints of a messiah/Christ in the writings attributed to Josephus

MrMacSon is concerned that following DCH's heretoforthwith admissions that DCH may have some charges to yet answer., viz. - DCH does not maintain such a diary, because DCH is lazy. DCH does not maintain such a log, although DCH does justify DCH's decisions in the [unverified] reports DCH submits. M...

Re: Jesephus (sic) - hints of a messiah/Christ in the writings attributed to Josephus

MrmacSon, DCH has previously posted, some years or so now in a thread about the Acta Pilati , that these note-books spoken about, called Commentarii/ὑπομνήματά, were the personal property of the office holder, and served as defensive evidence should any legal charges be filed against the person. The...

Re: Works of Irenaeus of Lyon and Origins translated into Latin are reliable?

The thing your teacher seems to be asking you is whether the clause "for they know not what they do" is a secure reading. It is not supported by Irenaeus, or Marcion. The phrase "And Jesus said, 'Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do'" is bracketed in Nestle-Aland 27 as an interpolat...

Re: Jesephus (sic) - hints of a messiah/Christ in the writings attribute to Josephus

it's interesting Josephus is narrated in the third person. I believe that the use of the 3rd person would come from his use of diaries in which he had recorded his official acts and decrees. This kind of diary was common, and expected, of any official with jurisdictional authority in the Greco-Roma...
