Re: A sad notice

His last posts about whether he actually believed in God, about the nature of the universe and an answer to the theodicy question look, in hindsight, a bit foreshadowing.

Re: The Story of the Savior/hero as an Allegory

There seems to be some debate about some of the Psalms being influenced by Egyptian hymns to the sun god and Yahweh having solar aspects. I personally suspect that Yahweh is an amalgamation of different gods or that he took on the roles of other gods. So the "Yahweh lives" in Psalm 18 could possibl...

Re: 2018 Klinghardt books (& some commentary on Markus Vinzent's ideas)

My translation says Heilmann says (italics mine) "Aland only presents the model for Gospel creation presented by Klinghardt". In German, flexible word order allows for stressing a specific meaning. Here it is stressed that Aland doesn't go much past a simple description of Klinghardt's position and...

Re: New Testament -- which are the mythicist texts? Analysis of Carrier OHJ

He also refers to the Pauline letters having "no knowledge of the Gospels or anything in the" which is a standard understanding, but then notes "with the possible exception of the eucharist, which one could argue reverse causation for". 1 Corinthians 11:24 has eucharisteō, but what he means by reve...

Re: Lena Einhorn's ideas

I had just been typing this and leave this here for the moment: "To add to my last post, I'd like to point out that the parallels to the Egyptian, to Jesus ben Ananias or Simon bar Giora are in no way competing. Quite the opposite: only if you make use of all of them, you get to cover most the gospe...

Re: Lena Einhorn's ideas

the trial of Jesus in the gospels seems to be based on the trial of Jesus ben Ananias in Josephus. Ulan, my aim is not to put down other theories on the identity of the Historical Jesus. I just have one comment: most of the theories put forth hone in on one or two, or perhaps three, similarities --...

Re: Lena Einhorn's ideas

The identification of Jesus with the "Egyptian" has a few good points going for it, but it kind of ignores the other parallels. The first one that many have pointed out is that the trial of Jesus in the gospels seems to be based on the trial of Jesus ben Ananias in Josephus. Not quite as clear, but...

Re: Lena Einhorn's ideas

Given I adorned this thread with my computer issues, I could as well say a few words regarding the video. I'm not sure whether I said something during the last discussion, and I had read the paper before, but I guess that doesn't matter. First, I like the general idea that the stories that are told ...

Re: Lena Einhorn's ideas

Ulan, it looks like the sound only uses the right speaker during that time, so it is a problem with your left speaker. If you go into your Settings for your PC and select your 'Sound' option, and then 'Balance', I think you'll find that the Balance scale is set all the way over to the 'Left' speake...

Re: Lena Einhorn's ideas

Hi Lena, the quiet section starts at 3:09, after you mention the Testimonium Flavianum, and sound comes back at 13:35, when you talk about Ginea. If I use my headphones, I can hear that your commentary is still there, just very quiet, but with my desktop loudspeakers, I don't hear anything during th...
