Re: Thomas Scott - Irenaeus Never Existed

Those damn authors of the DSS never dated anything. Eisenman and Wise, Dead Sea Scrolls Uncovered , p. 119: "...But what is unique about these fragments is that they belong to a select group of Qumran documents mentioning identifiable historical personages, as the Nahum Commentary does with Anitioc...

Re: Thomas Scott - Irenaeus Never Existed

It’s a fragment of Against Heresies. I realise that. I would like to know if it has been specifically dated and, if so, on what basis. I have recently been wondering if paleography of early Christian texts such as P Oxy 405 is a biased methodology b/c it is both self-referencing and based on assume...

Re: Was Romans chapter 13, versus 1-7 found in Marcion's copy of Romans

I am aware that Paul's Christology is often seen as a response to emperor worship and their claim to divinity. . Pray tell .... or Is this the 'tell' ? - ... Well, what does "this" tell you? To me the Christology does not appear to be a reaction to emperor worship, but the natural development of th...

Re: Was Romans chapter 13, versus 1-7 found in Marcion's copy of Romans

Was Romans chapter 13, verses 1-7 a part of Marcion's version of Romans? 1 Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. 2 Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointe...

Re: a new 'Mythicist' commentary on Mark

I think I figured out what the Blog was talking about. A comparison was being made between Matt 28:18 (not 10) and Dan 7:14. The Great Commission is well nigh universally recognized as an allusion to Daniel 7.13-14... But I, like Michael and you, am also not seeing where Matthew is using both the O...

Re: a new 'Mythicist' commentary on Mark

Ahh, -Matthew’s commission at 28:18-20 connects with poetic parallel to Matt 11:25-30 = notice how Matt 28:18f parallels Daniel 7:14 (= edothe, eksousia panta ta ethne) -Matthew 28:10b ( sic ) has combined BOTH the different wordings of the Greek translations of the LXX and Theodition lines of Danie...

Re: a new 'Mythicist' commentary on Mark

However, the PDF itself was never uploaded. So I've uploaded a PDF of it below in case Beverly, or anyone else for that matter, might find it useful. I find I now have 26 files of yours on my external hard drive. One of them is a spreadsheet, but the rest are in PDF. Eleven of them deal with Ignati...

Re: a new 'Mythicist' commentary on Mark

In “Introduction: part 1 ...” I like your section on Mt 28:18 and 2 Chron. 36:23 as you quoted both and put the Greek words you are comparing in brackets. However, you don’t continue to do this. This kind of multi language comparison is a tedious and drawn-out process (I know, I am in the process o...

Re: Josephus' astronomical signs

I am hoping someone has a full list of all the times Josephus makes reference to astronomical signs from the 2nd Temple period onward. I only recall these: Antiquities 17.6.4 - a lunar eclipse, c.4BCE Wars of the Jews 6.5.3ff - a star resembling a sword and a comet which stood over the city for an ...
