Early Writings Error

On the main page of 'Early Writings' you place the Talmud c. 217 CE. I think you mean the Mishnah

Re: Jerome on Galatians 3:6-9 (about Abraham)

This is scary cool. Bilingual Greek and Latin critical edition of the New Testament. I've got to put this in my bookmarks. http://books.google.com/books?id=AsdTQBSLw_MC&pg=PA103&dq=%22Marcion+de+suo+Apostolo+erasit%22&hl=en&sa=X&ei=f8k8U__fIOjP0gGDsIAo&ved=0CFoQ6AEwBg#v=onepage&q=%22Marcion%20de%20s...

Re: Jerome on Galatians 3:6-9 (about Abraham)

Hurray! In the future I think Schmid's Marcion und Sein Apostolos would likely have the original reference.

Re: Does Cephas mean a "pointed rock"?

I noticed this in Ben Witherington, hardly a hater of Christianity: As J. R. Mantey has ably demonstrated, there is no known example in contemporary Greek literature where petra means the same thing as petros. A petros is a small stone or piece of a rock, but a petra is by contrast a ledge or shelf ...

Re: The Strategy for Mythicists Going Forward

MrMacSon - if they 'moved away' from Judaism they began as Jews or proselytes. So what I say applies. Tenorikuma - that might apply for 'Christ' but not 'the Christ.' The Christ = the son of David, the redeemer etc. I don't disagree with Blood with respect to importance of the passage. I turned arou...

Re: Does Cephas mean a "pointed rock"?

In fairness, in some editions the physical 'front' of the book says only 'A Dictionary of Jewish Palestinian Aramaic.' It demands you actually open the cover and look in what is written inside to know what's what. The point is that most of these people have learned to play scholarly 'tricks' - you k...

Re: The Strategy for Mythicists Going Forward

It is almost certain the "Christian religion developed out of a pastiche of Jewish scriptural references", so why not have a narrative about a divine [human-god] being with a common Jewish name. But what kind of nutty people would care so much to build a narrative around Jewish scripture but be com...
