Re: Did the author of the Earliest Gospel hate the god of the Jews?

M. David Litwa has written an article about the Gnosticism, You Are Gods: Deification in the Naassene Writer and Clement of Alexandria His conclusion: To close: just as there is widespread recognition in the study of Jesus and Paul that the “Judaism vs. Hellenism” divide has collapsed, so there is ...

Re: The Beginning of the Rabbinic Tradition

Regarding the reference to "our" forefathers in Ant. 13.10.6, that this refers to all Jews (like in the passage in Against Apion I cited above) and not just the Pharisees seems clear enough to me because Josephus puts this word in the mouths of the Sadducees, but when he is speaking for the Pharise...

Re: The Beginning of the Rabbinic Tradition

Stephan, I am reminded of the debates that went on in the Academy over Plato's unwritten doctrines. Different scholars inferred them from other writings of Plato, and a few believed that their teachers had also preserved some unwritten doctrines, or at least what they believed were Plato's unstated ...

Re: Whatever happened to ... the "Journal of Higher Criticism"?

I vaguely recall on the Bible Geek Price mentioned something about some authors no longer giving permission and that's why you can't find some articles online at the legacy JHC...vaguely That may be true. Them wer' days of excited exchanges, and some of the authors perhaps had regrets. Still, to le...

Re: On the Longer Ending

That is exactly as I understand it. Poison and venom are not the same thing. Venom requires entry into the bloodstream. Boyscout to Troop leader: Sir is that snake poisonous TL: No it is not. BS: grabs snake, gets bitten and starts howling in pain BS: I thought you said it wasn't poisonous. TL: It'...

Re: Whatever happened to ... the "Journal of Higher Criticism"?

I am attempting to find an article from the Journal of Higher Criticism: Rainer Reuter, ‘Introduction to Synoptic Work on the New Testament Epistles’, Journal of Higher Criticism 9.2 (Fall 2002), pp. 246-58 as listed in the bibliography of On the Historicity of Jesus by Richard Carrier http://www.r...

Re: On the Longer Ending

A few random potential parallels to the longer ending: Eusebius, History of the Church 3.39.9: That Philip the apostle lived in Hierapolis together with his daughters has been made clear before. But as regards them let it be noted that Papias, their contemporary, mentions a wondrous account that he...

Re: Early Church Father quotations or allusions to the 'Question of Paying Taxes' pericope? (Mark 12:13-17 and parallels

I'm currently researching what I can about this pericope. I've analyzed Matthew and Luke's alterations to Mark's version, the abbreviated scene in the Gospel of Thomas, the Papyrus Egerton 2 version of the story, and Marcion's version of it (partially quoted by Tertullian). Now I'm looking for othe...

Re: After the 70 was the Christianity more (and not less) judaized?

I confess that I am partial here to the problems of the our same time: what some call an "invasion" of Europe by the Islamic refugees and the relative problems of integration, the populism, racism etc. The wars in Syria and in Libia may be compared to the Fall of Jerusalem since both the events pro...

Re: I Think Clement's Argument in QDS is Starting to Make Sense to Me

Well because my argument made sense to Andrew I thought because one person got it everyone was on board. All the terms connected with χράομαι throughout the section should be render as 'thing' or 'things' which allows the juxtaposition (which Andrew notes Clement already draws our attention to in L...
