Re: “Abba, Father” as two distinct deities, not one

But what does it take to disprove the theory? I am just curious. If I say 'I expect to uncover a buried treasure in my backyard.' And then I dig up my backyard and there is no treasure. At what point do I have admit I was wrong there is no buried treasure in my backyard? What does it take?

Re: “Abba, Father” as two distinct deities, not one

So you thought that the Marcionite name of the thief was BARABBAS. You develop or accept a theory which assumes that the name of the thief was BARABBAS THEN you find out that Tertullian reports the name as 'BARRABAS.' THEN you subsequently make up a whole load of excuses. Why isn't one of the possib...

Re: “Abba, Father” as two distinct deities, not one

So you have nothing whatsoever to say regarding the reading BARRABAS in the only report we know has anything to do with the Marcionite reading of the passage and its implications on whether the Marcionites called the man bar Rabbas or bar Abbas? Really? That's very convenient. Following your consist...

Re: “Abba, Father” as two distinct deities, not one

The Vulgate reads 'Barrabas' for instance Mark 15:7: Erat autem qui dicebatur Barrabas, qui cum seditiosis erat vinctus, qui in seditione fecerat homicidium. From Jerome, On Matthew 4, commentary on Matthew 27.16 (de Santos 25): Iste [Barabbas] in evangelio quod scribitur iuxta Hebraeos filius magis...

Well that's an important revelation. A conspiracy theorist buys into a conspiracy theory. Sound the bell.

Re: “Abba, Father” as two distinct deities, not one

I am just saying Giuseppe - be careful when you start behaving like a religious fanatic. The reason religious zealots are reprehensible IMHO is that they aren't engaging the evidence. It's not a fanatical belief in God that is the issue. It is a fanatical belief in anything including some stupid the...
