Re: Jesus Naked in the Gospel

But this would contradict the references to the Psalm about having his garments divided. John 19: 23 (RSV): [23] When the soldiers had crucified Jesus they took his garments and made four parts, one for each soldier; also his tunic. But the tunic was without seam, woven from top to bottom; Observan...

Re: Evidence that Irenaeus knows the meaning of Barabbas ("Son of Father")

Moreover, the only thing that distinguishes Christianity as a distinct sect is its ability to abandon temple cult, which required a messianic sacrifice or equivalent to replace the temple role in Passover and especially Yom Kippur (just as Hebrews 9 explains). Josephus, War... , 7, 1, 3: Hereupon T...

Re: Evidence that Irenaeus knows the meaning of Barabbas ("Son of Father")

What IS ALREADY in evidence in Barabbas, and you (idiot) can't never deny it, is that nobody knows who is the "Father" of Barabbas. Any idiot who claims to know who is the Father of Barabbas is precisely just a colossal idiot, one without a bit of evidence about the identity of the Father of Barabb...

Re: Was the resurrection of Jesus similar to Lazarus's resurrection ?

It's such a mess, and I don't get paid to keep up with this. >:S 1. I agree. We should all get paid for all the Good Work we do here, like a Small Bidness Grant or a Bailout like with Wells Fargo, Division of Satan's Bank. 2. "Ah feeel yer PAYNE." Actually, it's worse than that, in that there are 2...

Re: Was the resurrection of Jesus similar to Lazarus's resurrection ?

I fully admit that the texts themselves note a three day period, but how this is calculated is a matter of dispute. The Lazarus episode is in all probability based on the festival performances, in which case the four day discrepancy would be readily observable. Tuesday night to Wednesday Wednesday ...

Re: Question for Ben

https://www.studylight.org/dictionaries/hdn/j/jairus.html OK, OK, OK. Another Trail to follow. Something's going on here, tho' for now, I know not what. In Younan's Peshitta Interlinear, "Jairus" is rendered "Yoarash" in Mark, and then "Ruler of the Assembly". Again, as our Esteemed Ben states, "You...

Question for Ben

Josephus, Antiquities... , 17, 3, 1: "When Archelaus was entered on his ethnarchy, and was come into Judea, he accused Joazar, the son of Boethus, of assisting the seditious, and took away the high priesthood from him, and put Eleazar his brother in his place..." Ben -- Is there a reasonable way of ...

Re: Evidence that Irenaeus knows the meaning of Barabbas ("Son of Father")

Charles, Barabbas is based on the scapegoat of Leviticus 16 : [box]Moreover, when fixed to the cross, He had given Him to drink vinegar and gall. Hearken how the priests of the people gave previous indications of this. His commandment having been written, the Lord enjoined, that whosoever did not k...

Re: Evidence that Irenaeus knows the meaning of Barabbas ("Son of Father")

Because Barabbas is defined as rebel and killer. Once again, you've completely misunderstood the Barabbas story. Once again, the story is found in Josephus and it involves the Parthians, their search for a King and a woman named Thermusa ("Musa" in the Wiki-P article). Once again, She arranges to h...
