Re: Whose farewell speech is this?

We see that the time frame is identical Identical is what identical does . In the movie My Cousin Vinny , the prosecutor says: "The tire tracks are identical !" Yet they are not identical, because the prosecutor did not consider every bit of evidence (signs that one set of tire tracks indicated a P...

Re: The Clementines Explain the Early Appeal of Christianity

The truth is like a Clementine: If you remove the peel, you taste the sweet stuff. If you try to eat the peel, you taste the sour stuff. However, pinch the removed peel next to an open flame, and the juice bursts into flames. Pinch the sweet segments, and the flame is put out. This is deep and profo...

Re: The Earliest Gospel was not written by a Jew

That means he suspects that they had, and still have, subversive intentions, and consequently deserve to be marginalized. He did not feel this way about Judaism or the Pagan faiths, established in antiquity and not tainted with subversive motives. Since the ''Galileans'' are the same Judaizers fled...

Re: The Earliest Gospel was not written by a Jew

Maybe the following writing should be changed to "Against the Gentiles", no? It is, I think, expedient to set forth to all mankind the reasons by which I was convinced that the fabrication of the Galilaeans is a fiction of men composed by wickedness. Though it has in it nothing divine, by making fu...

Re: Springtime for Tiberius

There is an interesting online article about the evidence for copper drachmas that were, for whatever good reason they had, called "silver." This "silver" (copper) drachma was worth 29 copper obols, which was a little different than the prevailing rate for both silver and copper drachmas, 28 obols. ...

Re: Rechabites and James the Just

I think it is obvious that a LARGE number of obscure posts have either been based on, or could easily be answered, by what has been relayed above by Mead. Since none of the obscure posters seems to credit Mead as the source of their speculations, it goes to show just how thoroughly the POVs expresse...
