Re: Raphael Haim Golb

DCH, you use "salacious" a lot. That pertains, afaik, to sexual type of vulgar content. Is that how you are using it here? Yeah, from what I remember the posts would make lewd comments about various people, maybe use course language, in imitation of a person of low moral caliber (more of a caricatu...

Re: Why Are Historicists So Certain That Jesus Existed?

I've attempted to compare the stories passed on to posterity about various figures mentioned by both Josephus and NT writers, with some interesting results: John the Baptist: [/b] Judean High Priest Ananus, son of Ananus: [/b] James the Just: [/b] Jesus the Christ of God: [/b] The Judean Tetrarch An...

Re: Why Are Historicists So Certain That Jesus Existed?

A historian enters the debate. Thanks DCH. Well, I'm probably a piss-poor historian. I always intended to get to Contr. Cels. 1.47 but I couldn't even get the mythicists to look up/let alone understand Eusebius, Book 2 chapter 23. Let's proceed, shall we? 1. Origen is quoting from Josephus (source ...

Re: Raphael Haim Golb

Is Norman banned from internet sites like this one? Possibly, but he's not banned from this one (as far as as I know, he's never signed up). Then by all means, invite Norman to join this forum. I have some questions I would like to ask him regarding James the Just and the DSS. :cheers: Let's mainta...

Re: Another Mythic Jesus proponent

Isn't it amazing how masturbatory this forum is? The facts are that no matter how stupid any single member of this group is he/she has likely read more books than 90 percent of the American general public. On top of that the books he/she has read is undoubtedly 'harder' than the books most of the o...

The attribution of the death of Ananus as the cause of the destruction is also in the Yosippon (perhaps not surprisingly). But it's there too.
Yeah, but I was trying to limit the field to those within a hundred years or so from Josephus' own times. So I leave out Jerome and all the others.

Re: Why Are Historicists So Certain That Jesus Existed?

John T Eusebius writes AFTER THE CITATION of Hegesippus: Josephus, at least, has not hesitated to testify this in his writings, where he says,516 “These things happened to the Jews to avenge James the Just, who was a brother of Jesus, that is called the Christ. For the Jews slew him, although he wa...

Bill Kennedy, a Law graduate student, put this paper online: https://www.academia.edu/35137959/The_Myth_of_Jesus_Examined This paper argues that Jesus never existed. I [Bill Kennedy, that is] first examine two prominent arguments that purport to establish his existence: accounts of the crucifixion a...

Re: King Dave's pavurcn's Top Ten Reasons The Shroud Is Authentic

"pure pareidolia" Maybe we should bring up the microletters ‎Jerry Vardaman has "seen" on various ancient coins, but which no one else apparently can? I fully agree. My only point was that you seemed to underestimate what they in their pareidolia are able to do. :D Actually ... I was aware. :idea: ...
