Re: 1 Clement & the Gospel of Matthew?

[That does not jive for me at all. It would be like me praising the police force, in the present tense, for dutifully enforcing the Eighteenth Amendment (Prohibition). It reads to me more like praising the police for doing their eternal duties rather than specifically for enforcing only the Eightee...

Re: 1 Clement & the Gospel of Matthew?

But if that doesn't work for you, I recall that there is evidence that sacrifices continued to be made in Jerusalem after 70 CE. The people continued to bring sacrifices that were offered on a Temple Mount altar that had survived the destructive fire by the Romans. The Mishnah, a central code of Je...

Re: 1 Clement & the Gospel of Matthew?

For me it would be a matter of dating 1 Clement, and since I'm happy with c. 95 CE, then the question for me would be how many written gospels were there c. 95 CE. And the way I look at it is that the earliest references to written gospels we have (Papias, who I date c. 110 CE) mentions only two, M...

Re: Why 1 Timothy 6:13 was moved to mention Pilate

One wonders why Paul didn't mention Pilate to a similar goal, at least to make it clear that the deity has shown himself in the recent times. Certainly one does! IMO the one passage that has bothered me the most, though, is this one (1 Cor 11): "23 For I received from the Lord what I also passed on...

Re: 1 Clement & the Gospel of Matthew?

[P. Kirby once listed arguments for dating it to Nero's time] Does anyone know where I can find this? Maybe it is something he wrote on the old FRDB. On his Early Christian Writings page: http://www.earlychristianwritings.com/1clement.html , he cites Alvar Ellegård as having given a Neronian date. ...

Re: 1 Clement & the Gospel of Matthew?

I wonder if someone could help me out here. I'm sure that this subject must have come up before but here goes. In 1 Clement the author is talking at one point about the sacrifices in Jerusalem that are still going on, doesn't this imply a period before the Jewish Roman war? Lane, hopefully this has...
