Re: Jörg Rüpke on early Christianity in 'Pantheon: A New History of Roman Religion'

It seems a classically trained historian, looking at the products of biblical scholarship, finds 2nd century dating of Christian texts preferable to warmed over apologetics and their 'traditional' dates.

Re: Jörg Rüpke on early Christianity in 'Pantheon: A New History of Roman Religion'

My point is; the O.P. does not belong here on the Christian Text and History forum but rather the General Religious Discussion forum or even the Classical Texts and History forum. But to compare Mithraism to Christianity is as absurd as comparing Santa Claus to Jesus. " Had he [Rupki} not indulged ...

Re: Codex Sinaiticus - the white parchment Friderico-Augustanus

You would think a wealthy atheist/mythicist would jump at the chance to prove the Codex Sinaiticus is a fraud just like all of Christianity. I'm not sure how one possible forgery helps or hinders any mythicist case. Earlier manuscripts with variant texts are the bread and butter of mythicism, with ...

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

SA- do you no longer hold that Polycarp was Peregrinus with a dash of Ignatius? Or do you still think that theory holds true but as a man of many names he also claimed to be this Joseph?

Re: Kovacs's view about what the rulers knew

It is exhausting trying to understand your arguments. It sounds like you are trying to connect diminished eschatological hopes on the part of the author of the Ascension with the demons' not knowing who Jesus is in the Ascension , yet the connection itself eludes me completely. Also, lacking a stro...
