Josephus, Antiquities..., 15, 9, 3:

Re: Tinker Tailor Soldier Forger

Matthew 18: 1 - 4 (RSV): [1] At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, "Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?" [2] And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them, [3] and said, "Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingd...

Re: The Pre-Existent Marcionite Interest in Timothy

Don't disagree a bit! Note also that in the "Wolf, Wolf!" Judaic Passage the woman's name is "Miriam": "Immar-Yah-Em" => possibly "One (Acolyte) of the Lamb of Yah's/God's." The other: "Mary" => "immar-Yah", more directly "Lamb of Yah/God" I think this means is that the early movement was more Jewis...

Re: The Pre-Existent Marcionite Interest in Timothy

In other words, everyone accepted Paul's connection with Peter at Rome. The Roman community used the gospel of Mark which as we know was written as a gospel of Peter. they're saying there was some original, perfect church and then due to a mistake by a female leader the orthodox church sprang up. I...

Re: Why 1 Cor 11:23-26 is an interpolation

Dio, Epitome 64 : "As often as the moon shone out (it was constantly being concealed by numerous clouds of all shapes that kept passing in front of it), one might have seen them sometimes fighting, sometimes standing and leaning on their spears or even sitting down. Now they would all shout together...

Re: How "Synagogues" judaize a mythicist Logion

There was a Priest of Immer who was a "Seditionist". His character was rewritten into the savior/god "Jesus". .... The Romans took a Story that was viciously, virulently Anti-Roman and Anti-Herodian and turned it into a Pro-Roman History of a fictitious character. The Metaphysics came later and was...

Re: How "Synagogues" judaize a mythicist Logion

This is a record of VIOLENCE, not Metaphysics. Understand the Violence first and the Metaphysics will be seen for what it was. That is equivalent to make you a mere fan of scholars à la Brandon or Aslan: Jesus existed and was a seditionist. Hence it escapes me why Neil placed you among "mythicists"...

Re: How "Synagogues" judaize a mythicist Logion

1. My Dad used to have his shirts euhemerized at the Dry Cleaners back in the 1960s for 79 cents a shirt!!! 2. The "Holy Spirit" represents Domitian. The genius of the NT is that there was so much left in the texts that was contradictory. "Let the believers work it all out so they say that they unde...
