Re: How "Synagogues" judaize a mythicist Logion

I have answered so to Neil: There are several reasons to think that the earliest Jesus myth is the most obvious orthodox one: that Jesus came from heaven, was crucified on earth, descended beneath the earth, then ascended back to heaven. I invite you to review this position. Particularly, in light o...

Re: How "Synagogues" judaize a mythicist Logion

THe following Mark's passage, removed from various Judaizing interpolations, is directly derived from the Naassene hymn: In those days, as there was a great crowd, without anything to eat, he called the disciples and said to them: "I have compassion for the crowd because they have nothing to eat, an...

Re: How "Synagogues" judaize a mythicist Logion

The demonic Archons of 1 Corinthians 2:6-8 are euhemerized in the Gospels as Pharisees , more than as Romans. If Jesus expels little demons only from Galileans, then this means that in Judea, and particularly among sinedrites , the powerful Archons work still behind the sinedrites. They are inside t...

Re: Why 1 Cor 11:23-26 is an interpolation

The prediction of his own death is implicit in the Last Supper. In this way, Jesus could be considered as the voluntary sacrificial victim and in such measure he could be accepted by the Jews, otherwise much reluctant to accept a Messiah-who-doesn't-save-from-Romans. Hence, all the Gospel passages w...

Re: How "Synagogues" judaize a mythicist Logion

And in one place, Moses writes , "He [=YHWH] made the devil a serpent for those whom he has in his generation" http://gnosis.org/naghamm/testruth.html Why did the Gnostics call the Serpent "Joshua"? I see the following similarities between the OT Joshua and the Serpent: Both were exalted by Moses a...

Re: How "Synagogues" judaize a mythicist Logion

When the Risen Jesus shows his wounds, it is not to prove that he is risen, but to prove that the following two claims are not mutually exclusive: He is the Jewish Christ; He is crucified. The point is that Paul also shared a similar interest: ...but we preach Christ crucified , a stumbling block to...

Now concerning the Eucharist, give thanks this way. First, concerning the cup: We thank thee, our Father, for the holy vine of David Thy servant, which You madest known to us through Jesus Thy Servant; to Thee be the glory for ever.. And concerning the broken bread: We thank Thee, our Father, for t...

Re: How "Synagogues" judaize a mythicist Logion

Not only that. The same legend of Jesus descending in the Sheol was designed to make the point that, being the OT rehabilitated as holy book coming from the supreme god (identified now with the Creator), then the "Just" people of OT - Just according to the old Law - deserved salvation by Jesus, too....

Re: How "Synagogues" judaize a mythicist Logion

Today I learn a new suggestive explanation of docetism. One of the Gnostic arguments addressed against Jews is that the supreme god can't be represented, differently from YHWH who is described again and again in the OT. Hence, an invisible god is the supreme god, while a visible god is a false god. ...

Re: How "Synagogues" judaize a mythicist Logion

According to a Cathar legend, when Adam was expelled from Paradise, he wanted, according to God's command, cultivate the land. Then Satan remembered him that, since the earth was his own property, Adam had to subscribe a written document with Satan, by which he promised to give under the Satanic rul...
