Re: Was James the 'brother of the Demiurge'?

Mark 6:3 3 Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James , and Joses , and of Juda , and Simon ? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him. Jesus is identified with the same attributes by which a famous Messianist was identified (by the same [ key-names ...

Re: Pope St Clement 1

And let us not forget that there is a Hermas mentioned in Romans 16.14, too. and in Acts 14 after Paul had faith-healed a lame man, he is called Hermes - Acts 14:12 (NIV) - 11 When the crowd saw what Paul had done, they shouted in the Lycaonian language, “The gods have come down to us in human form...

Re: Pope St Clement 1

I have seen the Clement from the Shepherd of Hermas and Clement of Rome united as follows. The Shepherd was probably written in Rome; Clement of Rome, of course, hails from Rome. But the Roman letter to the Corinthians does not attribute itself to Clement or to anybody in particular; the Clement in...

Re: "him who judges justly" is allegory of the demiurge: Pilate

I'm sorry, my dear friends, but you seem not see the my point. There are two lines of inquiry of the Earliest Gospel: 1) the traditional line (of which even the 'radical' view of Joseph is a mere instance) that assumes that Jesus (I mean: in the Earliest Gospel with narrative form) is the son (adop...

Re: Pope St Clement 1

I also wonder about the significance of the mention of a Clement in the Shepherd of Hermas , at the end of Vision 2 - 4[8]:1 Now, brethren, a revelation was made unto me in my sleep by a youth of exceeding fair form, who said to me, "Whom thinkest thou the aged woman, from whom thou receivedst the b...

Re: Pope St Clement 1

Interestingly, 'Clement of Alexandria' (Greek: Κλήμης ὁ Ἀλεξανδρεύς; c. 150 – c. 215) was also named Titus Flavius Clemens (ie. the same name as the late first century consul some have speculated might have been Pope Clement (Latin: Clemens Romanus ; Greek: Κλήμης Ῥώμης; died 99) ). The Clement fro...

Re: Pope St Clement 1

For posterity, the genealogy for T. Flavius Clemens, consul 95-99 AD/CE , is confusing, largely there was a Titus Flavius Sabinus who was 'father of the martyred Clemens' (and elder brother of the Emperor Vespasian) and also a T. Flavius Sabinus who is said to have been 'the elder brother of the mar...

Re: Pope St Clement 1

The Catholic Encylopedia page for Pope St. Clement I also says - Basilica ... The lower church was built under Constantine (d. 337) or not much later. St. Jerome implies that it was not new in his time: "nominis eius [Clementis] memoriam usque hodie Romae exstructa ecclesia custodit" ( Illustrious M...

Pope St Clement 1

The online Catholic Encyclopedia has this - Martyrdom Of the life and death of St, Clement nothing is known. The apocryphal Greek Acts of his martyrdom were printed by Cotelier in his "Patres Apost." (1724, I, 808; reprinted in Migne, P.G., II, 617, best edition by Funk, "Patr. Apost.", II, 28). The...
