First hand accounts of Peter's and/or James' interactions with Jesus: their accounts of events and places those events took place; and/or . Paul or Mark recounting first-hand accounts of say Peter's, James', etc. experiences with Jesus: having recounted events and places to Paul. (interestingly, Pa...

Re: Proofs That Jesus Did Not Exist

The mistake that Believers make of course in thinking that they have proved that Jesus existed is that their evidence does not support their conclusion. Faulty reasoning, to the point of being laughable Joe. "Proved" is not really a historical context, and factually all of the NT and non biblical e...

Re: Revealing the son in Paul (Galatians 1:16)

Your missing context altogether which is "in his conscious mind" "in my heart and soul," seems more likely.

Re: Was the original Eucharist the giving of the prohibited fruit by the Serpent-Jesus?

If this scholar's view is correct, then I was right, when I said again and again in this forum that Jesus, when he is called "carpenter and son of Mary '' by the blind people of Nazareth, was considered by them the demiurge son of Sophia. Its nor correct, it is absurd. You have no way in hell to su...

Re: Jesus Carpenter “read” in the Platon's Symposium?

Context of tekton as used, in this time and place, by Markan authors, was that of displaced agrarian peasants forced off their lands many due to not being able to pay their rent/lease/taxes, and ended up doing what they could by hand on a day to day basis. They are said to live a life below that of ...

Re: Dating Paul's Conversion c.36 C.E.

I do not think that Judeans resident in the Diaspora were disposed to be too strict, as inscriptions record many many cases where synagogues and Judeans of the Diaspora got along very cozily with pagan patrons, even letting them equate the Judean god with some local god. Of course the local Judeans...

Re: Dating Paul's Conversion c.36 C.E.

Where I really blame your failure is in that the anthropology of this time period, which shows these were all very violent people, who did terrible things in the name of religion. While I do not use Acts, its descriptions were never vilified as rhetoric, or as lies or exaggerations, its reporting o...
