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...

... or ... 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...

Re: If anyone is new to Q and the Synoptic Problem

If anyone is new to the Synoptic Problem and needs an overview here is a link to an online copy of Mark Goodacre's "The Synoptic Problem: A Way Through the Maze". https://archive.org/stream/synopticproblemw00good#page/n0/mode/2up The digitizing of the book was done by Duke University, so my assumpt...

Re: Mark 16 and the silence of the women: The disciples redeemed?

"Someone you can ask" was meant in a general way by me. If you really want to look behind the story, you have a name as a lead in this case. What this exactly means depends on whether the story was real or it wasn't. Giving names to unique figures is usually done for a purpose though. The purpose i...

Re: Mark 16 and the silence of the women: The disciples redeemed?

It's simply what Mark said. To describe what the women are doing he used significantly the verb "watch" ( θεωρέω – theóreó) - 3 of 7 occurences in GMark – and in contrast to many many occurences of „looking“ and „seeing“. You may imagine that he never used „witnessing“ regarding the women. I guess ...

Re: Mark 16 and the silence of the women: The disciples redeemed?

Probably I'm discussing here because I believe that someone misunderstands Paul and Mark when he assumes that one of them may have been interested in historical evidence. My view is that both would invent a lot to prove that Jesus died according to the scriptures or because of our sins, but not the...

Re: Mark 16 and the silence of the women: The disciples redeemed?

I'm not even sure why we would have to argue over this point. It doesn't even touch your interpretation.
