Re: "The Simontic Problem". "Mark's" Negative Casting of Pet

I love the author of Acts. You can count on him :mrgreen: Acts 19.13-16 "Then some of the itinerant Jewish exorcists undertook to invoke the name of the Lord Jesus over those who had evil spirits, saying, 'I adjure you by the Jesus whom Paul proclaims.' Seven sons of a Jewish high priest named Sceva...

Re: Empty Tomb in Mark's gospel not written by original auth

Nevertheless Bernard has made a very strong case. Almost all points speak in his favour and I'm sorry that I haven't honored that. I'm a little bit obsessed by Mark and I hope that can excuse me. All aspects to argue against Bernard lay on the dark side of Mark as I would call it and that can't be i...

Re: "The Simontic Problem". "Mark's" Negative Casting of Pet

The third scenario is not possible. So it's seems true that Mark was mocking the pillars. From this point of view it`s easy to say that the “little one” in Mark 9.38-42 is Paul (Παῦλος = „little”). I don't know that up to now.

Re: Empty Tomb in Mark's gospel not written by original auth

We all know that there is a structure in Mark on which he speak with his readers. Look at Mark 13 how he rings the bell: "watch out", "when you hear", "when you see", "let the reader understand", "i have told you everything", "truly I tell you" and so on. So I think that in Mark 13 he gave the instr...

Blood wrote: We have evidence that Mark's ending was re-written twice, so I don't think suggesting an earlier re-write should be very controversial.

Mark 15:40-16:8 is original and nobody can change my opinion about that :goodmorning:

Re: "The Simontic Problem". "Mark's" Negative Casting of Pet

Time to test drive the new table feature here with a summary of "Mark's" use of "rebuke": Thanks Joe, nice table Perhaps the pillars could be mocked as a stand-in for a group that claimed them as founders, figureheads, or important characters in the allegory. third scenario: There is a historical c...

Re: Weirdest NT passages

1. Cor 6,9-11 Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you.

Re: Historicity of Jesus - the Talking Points

But the Gospel of Mark was written in the 1st/2nd AD and refers to Pilate, a figure of the 1st AD. It may still be a work removed from the description of the real world even then, but it is in that case a good question why it would choose to refer to the end coming in the lives of some of those sta...

Re: Historicity of Jesus - the Talking Points

And so, without further ado, let's get into some of the basic talking points, trying to go over as many as possible briefly. For the Historicity of Jesus (3) In the synoptics ( Mark 9:1 etc. ) and John (the 21st chapter), as well as in similar more-developed echoes in 2 Peter, there is reference to...
