Re: OT references in Mark

It's often said that certain parts of Mark show parallels with the OT. My question is how much OT references does Mark have? Is there any available analysis on this topic? There is a good Wiki-Introduction to the topic with a few links " Intertextual production of the Gospel of Mark " Two of our fo...

Re: Hermann Raschke's case for the Marcionite invention of John the Baptist in proto-Mark

Prof Vinzent here is 1000% right: Of course, Christian readers who are so used to the Synoptics’ accounts of John the Baptist may no longer feel this strange character of a delayed opening. In contrast, if we ask the question, could Mark have added this passage to counter one of Marcion’s challenge...

Re: Matthew 21.1-11, the jenny, and the colt.

Say what you will about S. C. Carlson, but he is pretty darned good at solving individual, longstanding problems in the New Testament texts. He posted two articles (a part 1 and a part 2) recently to his Academia.edu page, and I think he has figured out what is going on in Matthew with the triumpha...

this alleged French quote.
why "presumed"? It exists. Are you saying that I am a liar?
Oooh, the boys are very sensitive today ;)

No, I do not say that you are a liar, just that Couchoud misquoted Lidzbarski. Probably Couchoud's German was as good as my English :D

Re: Isn't he the "son of Mary", a code-word for Mandeans?

I was working from the French text Giuseppe provided. Giuseppe was saying something else still from what you provided from Lidzbarski. I know. Sorry, I didn't want to imply that you made a mistake. I just wanted to point out what Lidzbarski really said. It seems useless to me to discuss this allege...

Re: Hermann Raschke's case for the Marcionite invention of John the Baptist in proto-Mark

The Baptist Passage is an interpolation, according to Raschke, for the following reasons: βαπτιστής βάπτισις, βάπτισμα occur only in the interpolated passage and nowhere in the entire ancient literature. I always found Judith 12:7 very interesting. There the verb βαπτιζω is used. Obviously, it does...

Re: Isn't he the "son of Mary", a code-word for Mandeans?

Lindzbarski says the contrary, sorry. Your debate with another board member has almost allowed you to change the subject. Your citation of Lindzbarski DOES NOT support your interpretation. What he says in French is: 1. Miriai MIGHT come from Mary (Maria est peut-être le même nom que Miriaï 2. Miria...
