Re: Resource for Mythicist and Response Documentation

Re: Resource for Mythicist and Response Documentation

I'm confused about what you mean Chris. If I were writing a novel thesis on the book of Acts say under interpolation or redaction theories, why would Pervo's criminality need to be mentioned if I cite his work with respect to a particular interpretation of a passage in Acts? If I was writing a histo...

Re: Top suspects that could have invented the historical Jesus?

I think you're over emphasizing that point though. The simpler matter is how the author of Hebrews is responding to critics of his temple theology about Jesus and how Jesus can't offer sacrifice in the temple because he's not a Levite.

Re: Top suspects that could have invented the historical Jesus?

But even I agree with you and Kryvelev that Hebrews doesn't say that Jesus is stricto sensu Melkizedek. Hebrews says only that Jesus shares a feature with Melkizedek that is not an eucharistic episode, that is not, according to you , the absence of genealogy. So, what is the Jesus's feature shared ...

Re: Top suspects that could have invented the historical Jesus?

. In short, interpolation theses have absolutely no justification. While I whole heartedly agree that any hypothesis of an interpolation at any given point sans manuscript evidence is speculation (which doesnt mean it's wrong), I fail to see why accepting the manuscript as uninterpolated isn't also...

Re: An Aquila and Marcion question

Oh thanks!

I'm wondering if some of the readers took that rendering and interpreted it as vehemence?

Re: An Aquila and Marcion question

Hoffmann in his Marcion On the restitution of Christianity , tells us that Marcion was very literal in his interpretation of the OT. He goes on to say this seems to have been a characteristic of Pontian Jews because contemporaneous with Marcion, Aquila had made a new translation of the OT into Gree...

Re: An Aquila and Marcion question

I'm only finding one instance of Aquila in the book In only one law did the lawgiver directly interfere in religious matters. Justinian stated in a law from 553 (No. 66) that Jews were allowed to read their holy books in the synagogue in any language they wished, but if they chose to use a Greek tex...
