Re: On the difference between pre-70 Christians and post-70 Christians

. . After the 70 CE, the maximum triumph of evil was not more the Death of the Messiah, but the same destruction of the Temple by Romans . . There certainly were pre-70 AD Christians. The First Epistle of Clement also may've been written pre-70 AD according to Thomas J. Herron. https://books.google...

Re: Gerasene Swine (again) as Gentiles

Not sure I agree with your etymology, giuseppe. Besides, the safety of the reading Gerasene is shaky, although the scene could have occurred in the geographical vicinity of that town due to the steep slope to the Lake of Galilee. Since all the towns of the Decapolis region were established by Alexan...

Re: On the difference between pre-70 Christians and post-70 Christians

I'd say the major difference between pre-70 Christians and post-70 Christians is the spring in their step, although that goes for most in their 50s, and the kinds of undergarments the men wear (tidy-whities/boxers vs Depends incontinence protectors). DCH
