Re: Joan Taylor's Golgotha: A Reconsideration of the Evidence (1998)

The Single Most Important Factor Pointing to Authenticity On re-reading the paper, I realize that the factor that Taylor identifies as the single most important one supporting the theory that the tomb under the Church of the Holy Sepulchre is the actual tomb of Jesus is not any of the points I disc...

Re: Evolution and the Gospels

Why is Mark necessarily more important than this: I have no idea what this question is supposed to mean. It seems to me that "our" question is rather the following. Why are the claims of Irenaeus necessarily more important for an understanding of developments in the textual history of the gospels t...

Re: Evolution and the Gospels

So now that KK has made it clear that she has no curiosity for how things were established with our gospel, only that they were established as such and we should move on an accept it as the only productive way to spend time in this field (I hope I am summarizing her POV correctly), Oh Stephan, I ju...

Re: Why the birth story was not added to Mark

... but I am defending here the priority of proto-John ... No problem :-) But ... I am sometimes a little disappointed with interpretations, including the one by Couchoud and Stahl, whether from the conservative or liberal camp or from mythicists, where neither the pericope itself nor GMark as a wh...

Re: Why the birth story was not added to Mark

. My dear Giuseppe, it does not make the impression that you are convinced of the thesis by Couchoud and Stahl with a cool head :ugeek: No, (like a donna fatale) this thesis turned your head and you're hopelessly in love. How could it be possible that I can convince you :scratch: that „she“ is not a...

Re: Why the birth story was not added to Mark

Hi Giuseppe, I want to make sure whether I have understand the thesis. So check it out please. It cannot be assumed that the Barabbas incident is a historical account. One of our main reasons is the improbability that both „our“ Jesus, who is the son of God the father, and Jesus Barrabbas, who is th...

Re: Why the birth story was not added to Mark

The thesis: something as proto-John preceded all our Gospels. ... The proof: The only Gospel where Jesus proclaims himself totally identical to his Father is the Gospel of John: cfr John 10:30, 14:11, 14:9,23. The idea is totally foreign and alien to Judaism. It looks a bit circular. 😉 What is the ...

Re: Why the birth story was not added to Mark

Can you persuade me, by giving all your possible alternative interpretations of Barabbas (ignoring the boring Leviticus 16), that I am wrong about Barabbas ? Hi Giuseppe, probably not ;) But I take a look at it over the weekend. Could you please explain the thesis again? Have a nice weekend, Kunigu...

Re: Why the birth story was not added to Mark

I am sure that prof Vinzent will give great insights about new readings of Mark as reaction against Marcion, on a level of subtle irony of the kind alluded partially by Irenaeus (see above). :D I, on the other hand, seriously fear :( that Prof Vinzent will shatter his last scientific reputation :to...

Re: Evolution and the Gospels

What I call a logical error is the stance that this position ought to be the default . Many on this forum treat it as such, either not realizing that they are doing it or not recognizing that it is a logical error to do so. That's just a misunderstanding on your part. I have no problem with your po...
