Re: Lee Harmon's solution about the enigma of John of Patmos in Clement

The fact is, Domitian reigned also for a short time in 70 CE. Revelation 1: 8 (RSV): [8] "I am the Alpha and the Omega," says the Lord God, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty. Suetonius, 12 Caesars , "Domitian": "With no less arrogance he began as follows in issuing a circular lett...

Re: How many times does Jesus get in a boat?

Another alternative popped into my head a little while ago: You are required to attend Temple Services in Jerusalem for Passover and the week following (The Feast, which Mark also gets wrong). Mark 3: 7 - 10 (RSV): [7] Jesus withdrew with his disciples to the sea, and a great multitude from Galilee ...

Re: How many times does Jesus get in a boat?

@Charles Wilson I'll just say this. Paul the Apostle did lots of traveling by boat around the Aegean Sea, going to and from Troas to Greece and various places. Paul's use of a boat makes a lot of sense. Yes, which makes this entry more than a little humorous: Polybius, Histories 150: "Their success...

@Charles Wilson I'll just say this. Paul the Apostle did lots of traveling by boat around the Aegean Sea, going to and from Troas to Greece and various places. Paul's use of a boat makes a lot of sense. Why was Jesus using a boat? The "Boat" is a Symbol. The Temple Complex - Antonia and the Temple ...

Re: How many times does Jesus get in a boat?

Eventually it was called the Lake of Tiberias almost exclusively (and refer also to John 6.1). John 6: 1, 2 (RSV): [1] After this Jesus went to the other side of the Sea of Galilee, which is the Sea of Tiber'i-as. ... [2] And a multitude followed him, because they saw the signs which he did on thos...

On Matthew 19: 13 - 30

Matthew 19:25-30 is an amusing piece of work... Matthew 19: 13 - 30 (RSV): [13] Then children were brought to him that he might lay his hands on them and pray. The disciples rebuked the people; [14] but Jesus said, "Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them; for to such belongs the kingdo...

Re: Did the Jerusalem church even preach Jesus Christ?

"Existence is not a Predicate". What is this "Jerusalem Church" I hear so much about? Where was it? Fourth Street and Main? Last I heard the Temple was in Jerusalem and things were pretty tight as to Zoning Regulations. Caligula wanted to put a statue of himself in the Temple and "The Jews" bared th...

NOTE: Corrected!

My deepest apologies, Bernard.
Within 24 hours I managed to reverse something plainly written.

I will endeavor to correct the Post as soon as I can.
