Re: “In the flesh”: Recovering the lost grammar of Paul in Galatians in light of echos in Hebrews

Instead of "faith in”: Galatians 2:20 "I have been co-crucified with Christ, and I no longer who live, but Christ who lives in me. And so the life which I now live IN THE FLESH , in the faithfulness I live--that of God’s Son (νῦν ζῶ ἐν σαρκί, ἐν πίστει ζῶ τῇ τοῦ Υἱοῦ τοῦ Θεοῦ), who loved me and gav...

Re: How many times does Jesus get in a boat?

We know the author of GMark seem to have no idea what he was talking about. The Markan author believed the Decapolis was on the coast. Mark 7:31 And again, departing from the coasts of Tyre and Sidon, he came unto the sea of Galilee, through the midst of the coasts of Decapolis. There may be a lot ...

Re: How many times does Jesus get in a boat?

The use of the term "Sea of Galilee" appears to be evidence [among other things] that NT Gospel writers were non Jews and not familiar with the region. It's seems rather evident that non Jews (Strabo, Pliny) always used the term "lake" or "body of water" (1 Maccabees, Josephus, GLuke too) but not "...

Re: Papias and oral tradition.

While I have already agreed with you, Kunigunde, on the other thread, affirming that #2 on my list is the option I currently prefer , I wanted to be more specific here as to why I lean in that direction. Perhaps I can get some confirmation or disconfirmation for the idea. Most likely, no one receiv...

Unfortunately I can’t spell that name out, for that would get me evicted as being ignorant of the mysteries.

Re: What Are the Arguments for κύριος being 'the Name Above All Names' (Phil 2:9)

Some have proposed that the name given is the name Jesus. Moule suggests that "God, in the incarnation, bestowed upon the one who is on equality with him an earthly name which, because it accompanied that most God-like self-giving, has come to be, in fact, the highest of names, because service and ...

Re: Galatians 3:1 "portrayed as crucified"

In both Gal. 3:3 and the closing of the letter, there is an emphasis on visually seeing written letters--words portraying JC as having been crucified. The sentence would be very ironic if Paul had already used staurograms in his letters or other writings. Larry Hurtado wrote But art-historians typi...

Re: Galatians 3:1 "portrayed as crucified"

Why on earth then are so many translations so poor? The literal main meaning of "προγράφω" (pro-graphó) is "to pre-scribe". A public and written notice was a "προγραφή", especially the inscription on the cross of Jesus. Because the eyes are specifically mentioned in Galatians 3:1, the majority of s...

Re: Paul's Motive for the Jerusalem Collection

Paul's concern to raise a large donation from his flock in Galatia, Macedonia, and Achaia and deliver it to "the saints" or "the poor" in Jerusalem is a major preoccupation in his epistles (Galatians 2:10; 1 Cor 16:1–4; 2 Cor 8:1–9:15; Rom 15:14–32). This concern appears to have spanned his whole c...

Re: Do Fabulists Believe their own Fables?

Our own theories are just fables and we all believe in them. :cheers: If there is no difference between biography and fiction. If there are no facts. When ten of us are discussing with each other, there are often ten different opinions about what is the true fact. So nine out of ten must be wrong, ...
