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? Would love to read some o...

Do the gospels refer to Jesus returning?
No. As far as I know that is later tradition.

Re: Paul as Combatant in 1st Century BCE

Ben, I haven't, despite recent (self inflicted, ouch!) setbacks to my current model, completely given up on an early date for Paul.

By the middle of the 1st century, it was nearly entirely Gallic, with smaller detachments of Numidians and maybe some local cavalry types of whatever theater they were operating...

Re: Paul as Combatant in 1st Century BCE

Just came across this. Name change on enlistment https://www.romanarmytalk.com/showthread.php?tid=30469

It makes sense and could explain how a Jewish man could acquire a Roman name.
