Just wonder what your thoughts are on this.
Re: 1 Clement, I still think the ideas in "A Study in 1 Clement" are sound.

The Christian text might have been written in the 90s, or possibly later.

The editor may have combined it with a Jewish text in the mid second century.

What's the question? I feel as though the thread has already excavated my past thoughts better than I remember them myself. :D

Re: Why 1 Timothy 6:13 was moved to mention Pilate

One wonders why Paul didn't mention Pilate to a similar goal, at least to make it clear that the deity has shown himself in the recent times. Certainly one does! IMO the one passage that has bothered me the most, though, is this one (1 Cor 11): "23 For I received from the Lord what I also passed on...

Re: Why the Psalm 22:16 is genuine

What's the context for mentioning "who denies the authenticity of the psalm 22:16"? Who denies it, and why?

Re: “Let the flamen dialis shave only with a razor of bronze!”

Interesting. The possibility of a health benefit intrigued me: "Antimicrobial copper-alloy touch surfaces can prevent frequently touched surfaces from serving as reservoirs for the spread of pathogenic microbes. This is especially true in healthcare facilities, where harmful viruses, bacteria … The ...

Re: First Century Christian Writings Missing from our Forum's Website

maybe it was the other way around, and 4 Esdras was a Jewish Christian work that incorporated the Apocalypse of Peter I don't think so. Dear Peter , Can you please tell me why you think that the Apocalypse of Peter used 4 Esdras, instead of the other way around? I couldn't find any information as t...

Re: Rothschild: Is the Muratorian Canon a Fake?

"If the Muratorian Fragment is a fake, then its appeal to Pius may not reflect an actual fourth-century tendency, but a fourth-century tendency cropping up later—in the eighth or ninth century when the codex in which it appears was copied." Is this saying that it could be 8th century? Or that it cou...

If you're passing this through Google translate or something, here is what I said: I was joking a little. I said that I didn't see an explanation of the process by which Papias made the decision ...

Which is the difference between the title of founder of a Church (so old) at Corinth and the title of writer of a Gospel (so old) as Mark?

Please, explain me the difference and only then I can answer.
