Re: George Solomon: "Mark" (author) confused the Samaritan Prophet with his Jesus of Galilea, hence SUB PONTIO PILATO

A genuine jem of the book: The children of those who were witnesses of the facts did not entirely misinform those who gathered their statements and put them in form, and the error in the chronology, which ascribes the main event to the era of Pontius Pilate, is easily accounted for by reference to t...

George Solomon: "Mark" (author) confused the Samaritan Prophet with his Jesus of Galilea, hence SUB PONTIO PILATO

I have found today a great book ! :cheers: The author is George Solomon and a good resume is made by the Mythicist J.M.Robertson : Over a generation ago, Mr. George Solomon of Kingston, Jamaica, noting the general incompatibility of Josephus with the gospel story and the unhistorical aspect of the ...

Re: "son of Joseph" mentioned in the Josippon appears to confirm Hierocles about Jesus

What you are ignoring (probably because you are a Christian apologist and I don't like to talk with Christian apologists in my threads ) is that there is a lacuna (a gap) in the Josippon in the quoted passage: So the Josippon : In those days, there was fighting and dissension in Judea between the Ph...

Gryan, what does these references mean? Are you assuming that the reader is unable to find them alone? Are you a troll?

"son of Joseph" mentioned in the Josippon appears to confirm Hierocles about Jesus

So the Josippon : In those days, there was fighting and dissension in Judea between the Pharisees and the 'brigands of our people' who followed the son of Joseph , etc ...[ lacuna ] Eleazar, who committed great crimes in Israel until the Pharisees overcame him." This appears to confirm what the Paga...

Re: Gerasene demoniac and conversion of Paul: one and the same episode?

The only difference between John Cantlie and Paul is that the first, after the capture, started and ended as an ISIS propagandist, whereas Paul, after the capture, started as a propagandist pro-Jesus and ended, after the release (and even more so after the Roman victory), as a propagandist of a new ...

Re: Gerasene demoniac and conversion of Paul: one and the same episode?

A modern Paul is the journalist John Cantlie.

Just as John Cantlie knew ISIS, so Paul knew Jesus.

Gerasene demoniac and conversion of Paul: one and the same episode?

In Acts, one time on three, all the soldiers going with Paul are overcomed (Acts 26:14), just as him, by the light of Christ. In the exorcism of the Gerasene demoniac, the entire Legion of demons is defeated. Both Paul and the Gerasen, after the miracle, are invited to enter in the city/region. Thi...

Justin witness of a crucifixion in outer space

Justin doesn't say who crucified the Logos on the cosmic X in his reading of Plato. He says simply: " He has X -ed the Son of God in the universe" (1 Apology 60:1-5) It is very probable that the other Christians (who, independently from Justin, "read" that same crucifixion in Plato) gave a name to t...

Re: Zebedee = Saphat

the same midrash from OT requires the identity Zebedee == Saphat. And Elias departing from thence, found Eliseus the son of Saphat , ploughing with twelve yoke of oxen: and he was one of them that were ploughing with twelve yoke of oxen: and when Elias came up to him, he cast his mantle upon him.
