Re: Great moments in textual transmission.

A few years ago, I had to check out "My god, my God, for this was I spared ?". It's a popular translation in the Aramaic population though some say it makes little sense. For the record, I must say that it makes perfect sense and should probably be the chosen Translation. However... Lamsa uses this ...

Re: Late dating of Mark: How far would you go? And what are your arguments?

From a smart phone Since Holy Spirit is Domitian it should be few years after his death after “Damnatio” or whatever they called it. Verginius Rufus dies and is memorialized by Pliny the Younger and Tacitus. Verginius was involved with the “Empty Tomb” Comedy - See “Death of Otho”and Brixellum. Not ...

Re: Paul baptizes “twelve”

2nd attempt. Off the radar for awhile, using a smartphone
Like the Lictor above.
If “Paul” is built around Mucianus, “12 Disciples” may be 12 Legions. See Tacitus Histories,Book 4 and Acts

Re: Raschke's argument for John the Baptist Passage interpolated in Josephus

I agree generally to the Interpolation charge. simple agreement doesn't suffice. I want to know why precisely you think that the Baptist Passage is an interpolation. The Time Line and the Statements give a completely different STORY to John. As I said: I agree generally to the Interpolation charge....

Re: Is "blasphemy against the holy spirit" a Markan invention?

DM -- Don't misunderstand here. You may be correct. All I am suggesting is that the Hasmoneans set up the Judaic Worship by controlling the Temple Worship Apparatus, even to the point of giving Galilean Settlements to the Mishmarot Priesthood. Their Rotations from these Settlements is not in questio...

Re: Raschke's argument for John the Baptist Passage interpolated in Josephus

Note, please: I agree generally to the Interpolation charge. The problem is to figure the Story once you filter out the Interpolation: Matthew 11: 11 (Moffatt): [11] I tell you truly, no one has arisen among the sons of women who is greater than John the Baptist, and yet the least in the Realm of he...

Re: Is "blasphemy against the holy spirit" a Markan invention?

Re: Is "blasphemy against the holy spirit" a Markan invention?

Stefan Kristensen -- I enjoy your reasoning on this. It makes sense in an Apologetix (R) kinda' way. The Christian must find a way of incorporating the HS into his World View and this gets the Job done without all those messy Jewish Things. Notice I haven't mentioned Vespasian or Titus or Domitian i...
