Re: Godfrey schools Mark on how to write a gospel

The astonishment of the audience is expressed by the word ἐξεπλήσσοντο which in fact is a strong word expressing actual shock. In my translation this would lead to a more critical outlook where the audience is in fact questioning his right to teach here because he does not have permission like the ...

Re: Godfrey schools Mark on how to write a gospel

Thank you very much for this, Martin. I made the "Mistake of the Rewrite" (as seen in Luke, just below). The Woman with the 12 Year Issue of Blood touches Jesus' clothes. I wrote in haste. Luke 8: 43 - 48 (RSV): [43] And a woman who had had a flow of blood for twelve years and could not be healed by...

Re: Godfrey schools Mark on how to write a gospel

Luke 4:36 significantly changes the public reaction in Mark 1:27 so that the people are solely amazed at Jesus’ authority over the demon; in Mark the power over the demon is only one instance of something much bigger that awes them all. NG-- I ask for a little forbearance, plz. I don't even disagre...

What in your mind does it identify the historicity question with other questions about early Christians?
Carrier has nothing - no-thing - to stand on in regards Historicity:

Re: Was Papias before our Mark?

The surprise in the diaper is found in places like...oh, I don't know... The Book of JOHN maybe? Mark committed no error while he thus wrote some things as he remembered them. For he was careful of one thing, not to omit any of the things which he had heard, and not to state any of them falsely This...

Re: The Canon

Didache, Ignatius, Polycarp, Shepherd of Hermas, gThomas...Are you supposing that there might not have been any Christian texts published, bought, and sold in the 2nd century? *** I'm not sure what you're suggesting and/or asking. Could you put it more directly? Of course. I do not doubt that there...

Re: The Canon

I could have expressed this better. I didn't mean to attribute to Trobisch the false notion that no collections existed prior to the first edition of the NT. Obviously there was Marcion's Bible, and much other Christian literature. VICTOR CONSTANTINUS, MAXIMUS AUGUSTUS, to Eusebius. I have thought ...
