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...

Re: Why Zebedee had to be left with hired servants

Hmm, now why did the old man not forbid them to go off with a complete stranger and that in dereliction of their duty to the father they had to honour? Because they were lousy fishermen(they were repairing the nets)and he was glad to be rid of them and already had the hired hands to make up for the...

Re: Guillet: the Pillars didn't know that Jesus was crucified

I am not sure what numbering system is being used here, but the reference appears to be referring to Book XLVII (= 47) of the Digests. It would make sense for the next number to refer to Title XX (= 20), but Digest 47.20 does not appear to have anything to do with the topic at hand. The English tra...
