Re: Scribes in Matthew and in the rest of the NT.

Matthew can certainly badmouth "the scribes" with the best of them, but perhaps, in light of these two anomalous passages, there may be something to the notion that Matthew has a special relationship to the scribal profession or knows scribes among his fellow believers. What do you think? Any other...

Re: Jay Raskin's case for interpolation of John the Baptist Passage in Josephus

I see too much Christian providence, here: John's death is connected someway with Herod's affairs with his wife. A typical clue of the Gospel story on the Baptist's death. Proving the passage is an interpolation. I find it not suspicious. It was a royal palace on the way to Nabatea (Phasaelis) and ...

Re: Jay Raskin's case for interpolation of John the Baptist Passage in Josephus

A very very good question: Why does Herod send someone to Machaerus which is under the governance of Aretas and the Nabateans? How is it that he has the power to have somebody put to death there? Isn't it a strange coincidence that Aretas' daughter wants to be sent there? me actors of the Gospel dr...

Re: A Proposal that the Longer Ending of Mark is Dependent on the Gospel of Luke

... an already composed summary to an already composed gospel. Summary is an apt word. Hi Ben, Mark 16.9 backtracks chronologically ("when he had arisen") to refer to the time of the resurrection, which would come in between 15.47 and 16.1. (Yet 16.9 uses a different expression, interestingly, than...

Re: A Proposal that the Longer Ending of Mark is Dependent on the Gospel of Luke

What speaks for it ( besides my previous observations ) or against it? ... - Later Mary Magdalene ... My conclusion has always been the author of the long ending knew about Luke & John's gospels. And that's the more natural and simple explanation, as I see it. In conclusion, I agree with Bernard, b...

Re: Joan Taylor's Golgotha: A Reconsideration of the Evidence (1998)

The Single Most Important Factor Pointing to Authenticity On re-reading the paper, I realize that the factor that Taylor identifies as the single most important one supporting the theory that the tomb under the Church of the Holy Sepulchre is the actual tomb of Jesus is not any of the points I disc...

Re: Evolution and the Gospels

Why is Mark necessarily more important than this: I have no idea what this question is supposed to mean. It seems to me that "our" question is rather the following. Why are the claims of Irenaeus necessarily more important for an understanding of developments in the textual history of the gospels t...

Re: Evolution and the Gospels

So now that KK has made it clear that she has no curiosity for how things were established with our gospel, only that they were established as such and we should move on an accept it as the only productive way to spend time in this field (I hope I am summarizing her POV correctly), Oh Stephan, I ju...

Re: Why the birth story was not added to Mark

. My dear Giuseppe, it does not make the impression that you are convinced of the thesis by Couchoud and Stahl with a cool head :ugeek: No, (like a donna fatale) this thesis turned your head and you're hopelessly in love. How could it be possible that I can convince you :scratch: that „she“ is not a...
