Re: The best evidence of a celestial crucifixion in Paul

Conclusions are usually based on evidence which helps dictate context, which is then explained in a credible Commentary. You have only supplied a personal opinion without even a possibility of substantiating it. All while offering no cross references to support any context. And dude, this phrase is ...

Re: Yahwist’s Parallel Formation Techniques

It is important to try to understand how the various stories were constructed and the interrelations. I'm not satisfied with the conclusions KLewis gives or implies but think listing and discussing them is useful. How much was influenced from Mesopotamian cultures? Quite a bit under Gunkel, and I h...

Re: Paul never attacked Paganism and this is strange

My point is that he never attacked the Paganism with the same insistence/violence he attacked the Judaizers, Is there a difference between ignoring and fighting perceived heretical traditions? Again, you seem to think Paul wrote alone, he did not write most of his text, even the 7 attributed epistl...

Re: Those stupid disciples!

In the "Denial of Peter" Stories: CW I view them in whole as fictional. These are things people far removed from Israel are quoting based on Hellenist who ""may"" have visited the temple 0-50 years after it fell during Passover. And anywhere from 35-65 years after crucifixion and the reported event...

Re: Those stupid disciples!

The Priests were given Settlements in Galilee and would rotate into Jerusalem for Mishmarot Service at appropriate times for their week's Service. I don't know if this is correct or not. So the Pharisees were a divided group, between the Hellenistic Pharisees who worked with Romans to oppress the A...

Re: What if Paul feared a minimal allusion to a historical Jesus?

It is not even known if there ever was a historical Marcion, let alone that he composed a Gospel. If the four Gospels we have today are derived from a purported Gospel penned by a purported Marcion, and this Marcion began his/her Gospel sometime after collecting (or composing) a handful of letters ...

Perhaps not fear, but smarts.
Exactly. And when I speak of Paul, I mean his community he was in at the time the epistle was written. They plural would have known better, And just kept combatting their perceived heretical traditions of other diaspora based theology.

Re: Those stupid disciples!

#1 you are implying that the "Aramaic traditions..." were rewritten texts #2 The Hellenistic Core was centered in the cities and Jerusalem. A little clarification on my hypothesis. #1 ------Not rewritten text, had that been the case we would have much more Aramaic transliterations. I do not see any...

Re: sentenced to death for atheism’

I cant stand these types of animals. when people refuse knowledge and reality in favor of mythology, by that I mean refusing facts no matter how well the evidence is. They are below the human race, They are dragging humanity backwards when we should all by moving forward together.
