Re: On the hypothesis that the Gospel Jesus == Jesus ben Saphat

[T]his kind of (deliberate?) confusion by Christian part is more probable with the document known as "On the Priesthood of Jesus" , than with a Jewish document as the Josippon . I think you mentioned this source "On the Priesthood of Jesus" but I am not sure if it is supposed to be an ancient sourc...

Re: On the hypothesis that the Gospel Jesus == Jesus ben Saphat

The hypothesis that Jesus b. Tebuthi == Jesus b. Sapphat is corroborated by this further evidence: “On the Priesthood of Jesus” aka “the Confession (or, Apology) of Theodosius”, is a 7th-8th CE story of Jesus being selected and registered as a priest following debate concerning Jesus’s paternity an...

Re: On the hypothesis that the Gospel Jesus == Jesus ben Saphat

I see no Jesus b. Saphat in that list of Jewish High Priests. Although I'm pretty sure that you already know this (IMO, you usually have everything worked out in your head before you post), but if anyone else is curious, there are no HPs by this name: High Priests: Appointed by Herod the Great (37 ...

Re: Of Nazirites & Naṣoraeans.

Do you have the 2002 article he references in which he apparently makes this argument? If so, what does he say? Kokkinos wrote to me "Unfortunately, my article on the city of Mariamme does not exist in electronic form, so you have to order it from an academic library. " Yes, Some years ago I also a...

Re: Romans 10: Jews don't know the Lord...

DCH, Very well done! That is exactly what I mean all the time. The nr.2 is Paul. The nr.1 is the interpolator. This happens all through the letters of Paul. It will take a 100 years or more to sort it out. If it will be done, we will have the original letters of Paul back! You are in good company. ...

Re: Sleeper awake!

... I'm somewhat stumped by the discussion surrounding John 1:18. If I get this right, the Orthodox traditionally consider it a gnostic corruption of the original text..? No, I do not think so. There was some resistance about John in some quarters, because it uses the term "Paraclete" which was the...

Re: Edwin Yamauchi's "Pre-Christian Gnosticism" book (1973)

I'm halfway through Pre-Christian Gnosticism and it is painfully obvious Yamauchi is determined to cast the impossibility of Gnosticism before Christianity. Axe-grinding, noisily. A defender of the Christian exceptionalism, I suppose. What are the thoughts of this Forum's readers on Yamauchi's text...

Re: Romans 10: Jews don't know the Lord...

Well, I still think that there are two conversations going on in Romans chapter 10. Below I provide them side by side and with all the quotations from the books of Jewish sacred writings as found in the Lxx (Law) & Old Greek (all the rest of it). Look for definite articles, and lack of them. Yes yes...

Here was my amateur summary of the 2018 book that featured a translation of the reconstructed text w/o any critical notes or apparatus (except the table someone mentioned): http://earlywritings.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=4706&p=94519&hilit=The+Oldest+Gospel%3A+Klinghardt#p94519 I think this corre...

Re: Marcion Bible website of Klinghardt and Co

Last I heard, Klinghadt had not yet published anything significant in English. DCH David, Now there's this: https://www.amazon.com/Oldest-Gospel-Formation-Canonical-Gospels/dp/9042943092 Amazon warns only 20 left in stock, which sounds like it really has been published. I don't think it's made it i...
