Re: How does the mythical Jesus thing hang together?

Gday all, اَلسَّلَامُ عَلَيْكُم‎ You are the one who wrote the nonsense about writings in the Christian Bible are historical evidence of Paul not realising that the Christian Bible claims the Lord Jesus was on earth. Hmmm, are you saying that Paul DID realise that the Christian Bible claims the Lord...

Re: How does the mythical Jesus thing hang together?

Gday all :) Well, you have fatally trapped yourself. 'Fatally' ? Are you going to kill me over this ? If writings in the Christian Bible are historical evidence of Paul then based on your flawed reasoning the very same Bible would be historical evidence that the Lord Jesus Christ was on earth. Oh, s...

You have no historical evidence whatsoever that there was an actual person called Paul who really wrote Epistles to anyone at any time.
Apart from the historical evidence of numerous ancient letters attributed to Paul, to various people and churches.

Re: How does the mythical Jesus thing hang together?

Gday all, I strongly disagree with Doherty's argument that the Jesus in the Epistles under the name of Paul was believed to have never been on earth. The teachings in the Christian Bible is that their Jesus was the Lord from heaven who was born of a woman, was crucified in Jerusalem, raised from the...

Re: How does the mythical Jesus thing hang together?

Gday all :) Oh my goodness. No, you are quite correct. I cannot prove to you that there are no fairies at the bottom of my garden. Sheer dogmatism on my part. It's a strange world - I just saw this story about the resurgence of the Fairy Investigation Society : The rise, fall and rebirth of the Fair...

Re: SKULL as vault of the heavens as place of the crucifixion

Gday Guiseppe :) Have you looked into the Skull of Macroprosopus from the Qabbalah ? Marilynn Hughes in The Voice of the Prophets: Abridged Lesser Known Texts connected it with Jesus Christ in a note : "In the cranium” (or skull), BGVLGLThA. Begolgoltha, or in Golgoltha. In the New Testament it is w...

Re: How late might the gospels be?

Gday neilgodfrey :) Granted the lack of evidence for Hadrian erecting a temple/placing of image in temple, I had somehow for some reason understood that Hadrian promoted himself as a reincarnated Antiochus Epiphanes and that plausibly had something to do with the rumours and "fake news" of a repeat ...

Re: How late might the gospels be?

Gday neilgodfrey :) Does Detering say that Hadrian tried to place a statue on the Temple Mount? He doesn't say 'statue' explicitly, but he does refer to arguments over erecting : a temple to Zeus, the image of the emperor. It is most often thought that the Roman emperor Hadrian (117-138) provoked th...

Re: How late might the gospels be?

Gday Ben C. Smith :) I was refering to Hermann Detering's argument that this is about Emperor Hadrian trying to place a statue of Jupiter in the (ruined) Temple, which sparked the Bar Kokhba revolt of 132-135 AD. https://web.archive.org/web/20080227161050/http://www.radikalkritik.de/Mk13%20JHC.pdf I...
