Re: A New Explanation for 'Naked With Naked' in Secret Mark

My WAG is the opposite. I think the passage 14:51-52 came into Mark from a marginal note occasioned by its relevance to (ἔφυγον πάντες) all the disciples fleeing upon Jesus' arrest, all leaving him. That the young man (νεανίσκος) was clothed (περιβεβλημένος) in linen (σινδόνα) over his nakedness par...

Re: Discrediting Your Source. GJohn as Denial of GMark

Pro-Torah means Matthew is pro "Nomen" (Greek for Law) the opposite of "Antinomen." Antinomen is of course the Pauline position, which is associated closely with the heretical movements who rejected the Creator God, who was seen as one and the same with the God of the Jews, the Law giver. "Nomen" m...

Sorry Peter. I should have known. Yeah, Stephen tends to try and bully people. and uses rather crude language.

Re: Tertullian Accepts Paul had a Written Gospel, Matthew (!

Tertullian is referring to "his" Paul, as opposed to Marcion's Paul. The Catholic version of Romans declares Davidic lineage in the flesh for Jesus, which is drawn from Matthew 1:1. But Marcion's Paul does not have that Gospel, and his Roman's begins blandly almost identical to Ephesians (see Clabea...

Re: Discrediting Your Source. GJohn as Denial of GMark

Mr. Wallack, The premise you lay out is not correct. While you do lay out a few points to argue that Mark is the source which John opposes, you do not explore the other potential Synoptic Gospels, those of Matthew, Marcion, and Luke, as potential sources to compare and contrast the content of John t...

Re: Is Irenaeus citing from a Marcionite canonical text?

Stephen, The passages from Paul that Irenaeus quotes in this section are entirely the Catholic form, many of them not found in the Marcionite in any form (although a few are the same). It provides good ammunition to explain the reasons a Catholic editor would want to insert them. I think the "elder"...
