Re: a new 'Mythicist' commentary on Mark

I think I figured out what the Blog was talking about. A comparison was being made between Matt 28:18 (not 10) and Dan 7:14. The Great Commission is well nigh universally recognized as an allusion to Daniel 7.13-14... But I, like Michael and you, am also not seeing where Matthew is using both the O...

Re: a new 'Mythicist' commentary on Mark

Ahh, -Matthew’s commission at 28:18-20 connects with poetic parallel to Matt 11:25-30 = notice how Matt 28:18f parallels Daniel 7:14 (= edothe, eksousia panta ta ethne) -Matthew 28:10b ( sic ) has combined BOTH the different wordings of the Greek translations of the LXX and Theodition lines of Danie...

Re: a new 'Mythicist' commentary on Mark

However, the PDF itself was never uploaded. So I've uploaded a PDF of it below in case Beverly, or anyone else for that matter, might find it useful. I find I now have 26 files of yours on my external hard drive. One of them is a spreadsheet, but the rest are in PDF. Eleven of them deal with Ignati...

Re: a new 'Mythicist' commentary on Mark

In “Introduction: part 1 ...” I like your section on Mt 28:18 and 2 Chron. 36:23 as you quoted both and put the Greek words you are comparing in brackets. However, you don’t continue to do this. This kind of multi language comparison is a tedious and drawn-out process (I know, I am in the process o...

Re: Josephus' astronomical signs

I am hoping someone has a full list of all the times Josephus makes reference to astronomical signs from the 2nd Temple period onward. I only recall these: Antiquities 17.6.4 - a lunar eclipse, c.4BCE Wars of the Jews 6.5.3ff - a star resembling a sword and a comet which stood over the city for an ...

Re: Why Mark had to be called Mark

Isn't this the work where the narrator falls asleep in the orchard of Agrippa? Naaah! You're thinking of 1 Baruch from the Apocrypha, mate. 2 Baruch is not among the books of the Old Greek. This 'un is in Syriac, and there are fragments from the Armenian IIRC. The Greek fragment I had mentioned was...

Re: Why Mark had to be called Mark

How about the traditions he is said to have relayed? The 2 Baruch thing is suggestive, and I agree there is something going on between Papias and 2 Baruch (whether directly or indirectly), but the only hard datum I can come up with for dating 2 Baruch is that it was written after 70. Scholars have ...

Re: Why Mark had to be called Mark

If you have Papias in the late 1st century to early 2dn century, and Paul in the mid to late 1st century BCE, Papias would have elders galore. I am not sure exactly where to put Papias chronologically. Dating him to the reign of Hadrian depends upon Philip Sidetes having quoted him accurately about...

Re: Why Mark had to be called Mark

If the rabbinic sages (the more outstanding among their peers) differed in their interpretive opinions or even facts of the matter, can we not also expect that Christian elders might pass on unwritten traditions that differed in lore or facts. What else can one expect? The problem with this view is...

Re: Why Mark had to be called Mark

Gentlemen, Just a side comment here, so feel free to ignore. Members of this board should be, and most are, aware that in rabbinic Judaism (based in Jamnia soon after 70 CE) there is a tradition that besides the written books of the Law there was also Oral traditions pertaining to the matters writte...
