Re: Greek/Syro-Phoenician Woman as Linguistic Commentary

Mark 7: 25 - 26 (RSV): [25] But immediately a woman, whose little daughter was possessed by an unclean spirit, heard of him, and came and fell down at his feet. [26] Now the woman was a Greek, a Syrophoeni'cian by birth. And she begged him to cast the demon out of her daughter. Note that this is in ...

Re: Those stupid disciples!

Re: Those stupid disciples!

Thank you for the Clarifications, outhouse. I apologize for the mis-characterizations. As we have disagreed through the years, so it appears now. Life's tough sometimes.

Re: Could the Emperor Maximinus Prescription of the Acts of Pilate Have Been 'Positive' - i.e. to Support a Particular S

Note: Will not Post 2 Attachments inline. Will Post Continuation in next Post. There appears that there was a Calendar War that may have been cut short by the Roman Intrusion.
