Re: Competing Q Reconstructions

DCHindley, You should create a folder on google drive and upload them there. Then make the file read only for anyone with the link (if not PDF, say Word or XLS) Then all you have to do is provide a link. People can see it without downloading. It's much more convenient, especially when you are using...

Re: Philo and the Gospel

Philo, also, in the abundance of his compositions on the law of Moses which are in good repute by men of understanding, says in the book which he entitles thus, On the Worse Loving to Attack the Better, that “it is better to make oneself a eunuch than to desirously rage after unlawful sexual unions...

Competing Q Reconstructions

I was composing a reply to a Reddit post and wanted to give example comparative tables, so I saved three MS Excel spreadsheets as PDFs, and will post here so they can be accessed. Reddit doesn't seem to support tables. (Hindley, David C) Q as defined by Mack & Kloppenborg (2011).pdf Since this b...

Re: A Stylometric Analysis of the Mar Saba Letter

IIRC, there are also several treatises and letters preserved under the name of Plato, some of which are considered genuine and some are considered to be pseudepigraphic and exhibit traits of a later stage of Platonic theory. Of course, the true authors try to give the writing verisimilitude, and wer...

Re: The destruction of non-Canonical texts?

I'd sure like to have a chance to read the 'Book of Elchasai' (Book of Elxai) some day. Do you think that this book and others like it that were banned may yet exist as copies hidden within the Vatican library? Well maybe not the Vatican Archives (that would have stuff personal to the Popes). I do ...

Re: The destruction of non-Canonical texts?

Larry, If you do not have $140 for the very last hardcopy still on hand at Amazon, or $45 for an E-reader (not a PDF) version, there is a long and detailed discussion of Christian censorship of the Talmud, and censorship in antiquity, in Did Jesus Live 100 BC? (G R S Mead, 1903). He may have been a ...

Re: The destruction of non-Canonical texts?

I was trying to understand why we don't have so many of the referenced non-canonical texts available to be read. I presumed this might be to their ordered destruction. Apparently this is not likely to be the main reason, and therefore my presumption was flawed. There are probably several reasons fo...

Re: Ish(u), Ye(ho)shua, and the nomina sacra.

You might consider an "Interlinear" translation (Greek words as in text, with an English gloss directly under each word). Some are better than others. Avoid the ones put out by Fundamentalist and conservative Evangelical presses (interlinear English text will be whatever is in the KJV or NIV) but f...
