Re: Vain Genealogies

Assume for a moment that Nicolaus of Damascus' "Assertion" that Herod's father Antipater came through the Babylonian Captivity was found in a Document that became the genealogy of "Jesus" in Matthew 1. Josephus, Antiquities..., 14, 1, 3: "But there was a certain friend of Hyrcanus, an Idumean, calle...

Re: Vain Genealogies

Actually, my Fog-Bound Brain (r) is pretty much backed up with a number of problems that usually haunt me from Physics to Bridge to Option Football combined with various itches I can't reach with either hand. Thank you DCH. In this case, it's finding the solution to the Lukan Genealogy from the rath...

Re: Vain Genealogies

Thank you, Nasruddin. That helps.
I am currently looking at Jeconiah in Matthew and an unexpected indirect note about Ezra in Luke.

Vain Genealogies

So let's compile the list of sections of AH 1 which do not appear in AV in order. 1. INASMUCH(1) as certain men have set the truth aside, and bring in lying words and vain genealogies ... I want to list a few quotes for an Overview of the Genealogy Question, esp. in regards to Matthew. I continue t...

Re: Can We Actually Date Patristic Texts With Any Degree of Accuracy?

It's a really big problem, since everything is based on the veracity of the Patristics There are other "Objective Markers" but things may not lead to Veridical Expressions either. The Mishmarot Priesthood was based on the 24 Groups listed in 1 Chronicles 24. Is this a valid Area of Study? A valid A...

Re: Mark is first, give him his due then.

Of Galba: Suetonius, 12 Caesars , "Galba": Accordingly his [Galba's] coming was not so welcome as it might have been, and this was apparent at the first performance in the theatre; for when the actors of an Atellan farce began the familiar lines "Here comes Onesimus from his farm" 36 all the spectat...

Re: Mark is first, give him his due then.

The man with the withered hand on a sabbath joke is hilarious, because the synagogue attendants are closely observing if Jesus will treat him on a sabbath in order to condemn him, but Jesus turns the joke on them because he doesn't lift a finger but instead he orders the man to show his hand and th...
