Thomas L Brodie on Ehrman's 'Did Jesus Exist?'and oral traditions

Thomas L Brodie’s 2012 'Beyond the Quest for the Historical Jesus' has an Epilogue about Bart Ehrman’s 2012 'Did Jesus Exist?' in which Brodie says the key role that Ehrman attributes to oral tradition in the development of the narratives about Jesus does not correspond to any known model of oral tr...

Re: Why Jesus had to have brothers and a lot of sisters

If Jesus [came] from a perfect pious Jewish family ...then confuted [would be] the original Gnostic apostles who [had] preached that Jesus is the son of an alien god ( not the god of the Jews) . The entire process behind the Gospels is [according to Giuseppe] called "re-judaization" of Jesus: a new...

Re: 2018 Klinghardt books

... That Pauline influence seems limited mainly to scriptural quotations seems weird no matter what name the epistles may or may not have borne at the time, right? ... edited: I wonder if some or even many of the 'scriptural quotations' in [early] patristic commentaries are coincidences (or even if...

Re: 2018 Klinghardt books

Could it be that the Epistolarian hadn't received the name Paul yet at the time of Justin? I wondered that too, when reading Vinzent. Although there seems to be a lot of 'reading between the lines' and thus speculation, it would also seem worthwhile giving Vinzent's propositions the light of day, p...

Re: Markus Vinzent's 'Marcion & the Dating of the Synoptic Gospels'

Yes, more work definitely needs to be done on Paul and Justin Martyr. On the one hand, Justin seems to take after Papias in some way...

Markus Vinzent & Marcion and the Dating of the Synoptic Gospels

Thanks for the link. I had some free Amazon points and went ahead and ordered this book, which arrived just today. Now I can compare BeDuhn, Roth, and Klinghardt, for whatever that might be worth. You're welcome Ben. I went to a university library yesterday and read the start of Vinzent's Marcion a...
