Re: Raphael Haim Golb

I don't remember the posts on the forums being salacious at all, granted it was about 15 years ago. I remember a bit of confusion "where did that fellow come from?". "Who is that masked man?". Of course, even back then moderators had tools to do things like putting new posters on moderation, that p...

Re: more on probably-fake scrolls

But notice that these forgeries are perfectly ordinary. Nothing new or outlandish. Just a money making enterprise. Whoever produces them do seem to have a good handle on writing ancient Hebrew, no grammatical mistakes or new controversial variants, etc., which suggests someone with an academic or a...

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.
