Re: The Skeptical Critical Commentary - Gospel of Mark

I think Paul speaks quite a lot about what "has been written" in scripture. If that is correct, then Mark is not completely alone in early Christianity. Agreed und Paul clearly attached authority to the scriptures. But my point is here a specific way of quotation of the prophet Isaiah (or the proph...

Re: 1:1-3 External Evidence

Good to see you again, Kunigunde. Thanks Ben. Nice to see you still here. One of the internal reasons to trust, that Mark 1:1-3 is imho probably original, should be the first part of Mark 1:2 and for the sake of the argument it plays no great role which textual variant is to prefer, even if I follo...

Re: 1:1-3 External Evidence

External Evidence : There is no direct External Evidence supporting omission of 1:1-3. But what are the qualifications for supporting inclusion?: 1) Large time gap between authorship and extant manuscript support - GMark authorship c. 100 and earliest extant Manuscript/Papyrus is Vaticanus c. 350, ...

Re: In P52 Titus (and not Pilate) crucified Jesus

Now that I see it again, it seems a Π (for Pilate) that seems to be divided (by the long time) in two (false) T, something as: Π ---> TT -----> T T ------> the first false T is survived, while the other false T is lost. I hope that the my explanation is clear. That's a very good idea! The other two...

Re: In P52 Titus (and not Pilate) crucified Jesus

http://www.tg0.it/articoli/2006/p52t.gif But note the last symbol: it is not a Π but a T . Isn't it? T for TITOΣ ? I.e. Titus . To the right of the sign (marked in red in the photo below), identified by you as a Tau, is still a stroke (marked with an arrow), which most likely is not an Iota. The wo...

Re: Tom Dyskstra on 'Q'

While I find Goodacre and Goulder engaging, I just cannot come around to believing that minor agreements outvote a major agreement. I assume that Goodacre and Goulder would agree with you. It's not a thing between major agreements and minor agreements, but between major dis agreements and minor agr...

Re: The Purpose of John Compared with Mark

. The purpose of this post is just to draw attention to an interesting indifference in GMark 15:6-15 (the Barabbas scene) and what John perhaps had to say about it. In the traditional iconography, both Jesus and Barabbas stood before Pilate and the crowd had to choose between the two candidates. Bar...

Re: “Prophesy! Who is it that struck you?” ...

So I take the "Prophesy!" part as being Mark's idea of something that correlates with the "mocking" part of Is. 50:6. I agree that there is an OT-allusion to Isa 50:6. But I assume that an expectable objection could be the following: According to such literary interpretations, the word “prophesy” h...

Re: “Prophesy! Who is it that struck you?” ...

Have you noticed something odd in the Diatessaron here: And they (the Sandhedrin) all said, Why should we seek now witnesses? we have heard now the blasphemy from his mouth. What then think ye? They all answered and said, He is worthy of death. Then some of them drew near, and spat in his face, and...

Is there an invisible elephant in the room? 1) “Who is it that struck you?” An argument against Q In a fine post two years ago over at Vridar, Tim Widowfield explained a "slam-dunk" argument against the existence of Q, but also the defense against this argument. Mark Goodacre puts it this...
