Re: I would like someone to inform me about Laparola.net/grego if this site is reliable

Hi, I would like someone to tell me if the laparola / greek site is a reliable site of textual criticism, since I was analyzing lucas 23,34 and after church fathers I could not find their quotes in the works, these 2 fathers of the church are marciao and Clemente alexandria follow the print Good qu...

Re: The closing chapters of 1 Clement

This board and its predecessors (Free Ratio DB and Internet Infidels DB) *used* to be keen on looking at the source texts rather than argumentation by citing authorities about content & dates, but that does not seem to be of interest in this thread. i think it's of interest. I appreciated the table...

Re: The closing chapters of 1 Clement

Hi all, I notice that the Roberts-Donaldson translation of 1 Clement (found on EarlyChristianWritings.com ) concludes at chapter 59, whereas Lightfoot and Hoole's goes all the way to chapter 65. I think I recall reading somewhere that some have proposed the final 5 chapters are a later interpolatio...

Re: Question on GMark's Adoptionism vs. the Empty Tomb

I take it, you were raised as an atheist? No, I was not. My parents were Christian. I went to church on Sunday. My siblings and I had 12 years of Catholic school education. I went to an all-boys high school. We had a picture of Jesus on the wall near the stairs at home; maybe you've seen it before....

Re: Question on GMark's Adoptionism vs. the Empty Tomb

If his article was published in 2002 it must have been written in something like 2000. That's 18 years ago. He doesn't even look 38 now. But still, he was 20 when he wrote that? It was based on this webpage (2001): https://infidels.org/library/modern/peter_kirby/tomb/ There were several trips to th...

Re: Codex Sinaiticus - the white parchment Friderico-Augustanus

For the Codex Sinaiticus not to under go such testing is inexcusable, (barring lack of funding). Speculatively, here are three reasons manuscripts might not get tested: 1) Inertia, property rights, and a philosophy of custodial duty that tends towards conservation. 2) Limited upside. Acceptable con...

Re: Could 'Irenaeus' Have Been Julius Sextus Africanus?

Cest . 5.51 refers to Aelia Capitolina as "the old home" ( arxaia patris ). I presume the implication is Aelia Capitolina was Africanus' home/birth place. If so, what would his parents' ethnicity or religious have been, beyond 'Gentile'? It would be good to be able to discern what religion/s many o...
