Re: Marcionite agreements with Matthew against Luke?

Re: Marcionite agreements with Matthew against Luke?

Are there such things? The proposition of Klinghardt is that Matthew is derived from Mark and Marcion, and Luke is derived from Matthew, Mark and Marcion. If this is the case, I would expect to see cases of agreement between Matthew and Marcion against Luke. Does any such thing exist? I believe Ste...

Re: A strange anomaly in Mark 14:41

'Paul' (just as for Jesus in the Mark passages you quoted above) appears to me to have died (perhaps on the battlefield along with and perhaps right along side of Jesus, or perhaps even as Jesus himself), and in (ahem) "his" letters we hear the voice (logos, wisdom, spirit, Jesus) of Paul (through t...

The Gospels stories of Jesus must have been made up.
All stories of transcendent "god(s)" are made up.

Re: Barabbas is the link between Marcion and Jesus ben Ananias

Only John of Gischala seems to fit this description. nonsense. Are you a troll, :consternation: lsayre, or more simply a pious Christian? :confusedsmiley: Ah, the classic "Argument From Intimidation" which seeks to substitute moral judgment for intellectual argument, as if such a truly weak approac...

Re: Barabbas is the link between Marcion and Jesus ben Ananias

As I have written: reading Doudna's posts, I can’t help saying: that’s exactly what happened! :cheers: :thumbup: If Paul and Josephus/Barnabas were associates, whom among the associates of Josephus was Paul? Who did Josephus/Barnabas ultimately disagree with and come to loggerheads with, whereby th...

Re: Any account of non-Pauline "Christianity"?

What if Paul's Christ only became Jesus Christ after Jesus worshipers usurped his letters?

Re: The impact of Marcion...

Bernard Muller makes a strong case that the Gospel of Luke was written by a woman. Stephan Huller makes a strong case that Marcion was actually Marcelina. The Marcionites are presumed to have used a proto-Luke. From this might a case be made whereby Marcelina was likely the author of the earliest la...
