Re: Where it is said that the rock where Andromeda was bound is a crux?

It seems that a Latin poet wrote so but I don't find the reference. Thanks in advance if you find it. Sorry, I had previously posted that link to a versified English rendition of the Andromeda/Perseus drama before I realized it was a modern version dependent on undisclosed sources. The Jewish Encyc...

Re: Epiphanius on the Ebionites

Not under the name "Ebionite," but since that word means "(the) poor" then you have Paul being given the instruction to "remember the poor" (τῶν πτωχῶν ἵνα μνημονεύωμεν, "tōn ptōchōn hina mnēmoneuōmen"). Then why didn't they call themselves something based on the word that Paul, James and Jesus use...

Re: Was Jesus of Nazareth an Arab?

It actually does not make any difference to me whether one wants to demonize or glorify "Arabs" (there I go scare quoting again). It was more about casually accepting identification of Jesus as somehow of likely Ituraean stock because of the province he resided in, and then casually say "then [he's]...

Re: Was Jesus of Nazareth an Arab?

I am a bit surprised by your portrayal of Galilee as populated by ethnic Ituraeans, and then equating Ituraeans ethnically with "Arabs." That's 19th-early 20th century thinking, that is, corny and cliche. I think you'll find a more cautious, less colorful, portrayal of this region and the Ituraeans...

Re: How Jewish Was Herod?

Evie Gassner's web article uses some loaded language ("forced to convert," etc.) that is biased against Herod the Great. The picture she used to portray Herod makes him look shifty, too. Herod did obtain many concessions from the Romans for his subjects of Judean identity, but he adopted a decidedly...

Re: Sacrifices without a temple and the date of pseudo-Philo (for John2).

John2, I think semiopen was being facetious when he said that. Christianity has long faulted Judaism for their desire to fulfill Mosaic law in a temple as opposed to a tabernacle, which includes the sacrifices, rather than worship Jesus without them (hence the "moron" statement), and so Christians m...
