If even a hint of early Christian figures were referred to in the DSS, trust me, you would have heard all about it.

There is nothing.
Ok, but I believe I have heard it said?

Trust you? seriously? :D

Re: The Dead Sea Scrolls and Christianity

Personally, speaking as an amateur generally and as someone who has not studied the DSS in detail, I would opine that the suggestion that "original, Jewish 'Christianity' " was in some way (note my deliberate vagueness) related to the DSS seems essentially plausible. The suggestion (did Eisenmann go...

Re: The census tax & the date of the gospel of Mark.

'Mark' might have goofed (again) then? Engaged in an anachronism, yes. What does the "again" refer to, specifically? Doesn't he make a few geographical errors, such as pigs in Gerasa jumping 30 km (horizontally) into the sea of Galilee, or Jesus passing through Sidon on the way from Tyre to the sea...

Re: "furthest outreach of the matter" == "air"

I think maybe you're in the wrong thread. This one, which you started, was about earth vs air, not 'in human form'. :scratch:

Re: "furthest outreach of the matter" == "ai

All wrong, starting at the opening line. And at best very confused, or irrelevant, thereafter. Gosh, if you can't even read Doherty right, how on earth can you hope to read an ancient document? It's a concession. It's not the death knell for the theory. But if you can't even see it's a concession, t...

Re: How old are the questions re "this generation shall not pass till" all things fulfilled, etc?

This is what happened to the Jehovah's Witnesses when Charles Russell's predicted coming of Jesus did not happen. They spiritualized it. Indeed. 'When Prophecies Fail,' etc. Could I be cheeky though and suggest that you may have inadvertently just laid some groundwork for a possible celestial/spiri...

Re: "furthest outreach of the matter" == "air"

You are placing falsely on the mouth of Doherty words that he never said. Rubbish. The author of your favorite theory made a significant concession about the reading of one of the theory's important texts, which text Carrier had called 'a template for a celestial Jesus' (paraphrased). Accept it and...

Re: "furthest outreach of the matter" == "air"

This reflects the view of the Ascension of Isaiah: You shall descend through the firmament and through that world as far as the angel who (is) in Sheol, but you shall not go as far as Perdition You're aware even Earl Doherty now apparently accepts that A of I Probably says Jesus came to earth.
