Re: John the Baptist was buried by the his disciples, whereas Jesus was not.

Interesting theory. Thanx. Since 2014 the Time Line has been tightened up quite a bit. Bilgah serves [Tuesday Night-Wednesday], [Wednesday Night-Thursday], [Thursday Night-Friday] to explain "Destroy this Temple and in three days I will build a new one...". Immer Consecrates the New Temple as it ro...

Re: John the Baptist was buried by the his disciples, whereas Jesus was not.

Aren't both the burial by the his own disciples and the beheading the particular signs of the relative importance of John, in terms of popularity, in comparison to an obscure Jesus? Acts 13: 24 - 25 (RSV): [24] Before his coming John had preached a baptism of repentance to all the people of Israel....

Re: If the Testimonium Flavianum is partially genuine, then Jesus didn't exist

My argument is that if the outsider Josephus noted a so little thing as the Christian hearsay about a HJ, then the silence of the insider Paul becomes virtually stronger (=more unexpected) against the HJ. Giuseppe (and PK) -- Consider: Acts 28: 3 - 6 (RSV): [3] Paul had gathered a bundle of sticks ...

Re: Patristic One-Liners: Marcion

Why can't Marcion have just been a cipher for Paul AND HOW IS IT A CIPHER ? Do you even know what a cipher is? Cipher - 1. a secret or disguised way of writing; a code. "he was writing cryptic notes in a cipher" Stephan Huller -- Your behavior here is appalling. See above. I was using "Cipher" in p...

Paul as Mucianus

It’s possible that Marcion is Paul / cipher for Paul You are onto something, PK. I believe that Paul is a cipher for Mucianus, Procurator of Syria. It's a short step to smear "Mucian" into "Marcion". Mucianus wrote Acta and Letters , since lost. Wonder what THOSE were about? I can certainly play "M...

Re: What Evidence or What Suggestions Are There that Jesus Was a Shapeshifter?

John 1: 31 - 34 (RSV): [31] I myself did not know him ; but for this I came baptizing with water, that he might be revealed to Israel." [32] And John bore witness, "I saw the Spirit descend as a dove from heaven, and it remained on him. [33] I myself did not know him ; but he who sent me to baptize ...

Annals, by Clement Mar Saba

Have people made the same sort of examinations with other authors? Actually, yes. Spend a good afternoon with John Ross Wilson critiquing Annals . For years, I worried about Annals and its authenticity. "After all, it was discovered in the 1500s when forgeries were rampant." Annals certainly helped...
