Re: Dating of the Fourth Gospel: Nongbri

^That's a bit over the top. Nongbri's statement here is fair. His point is that evangelical scholars try to draw more from P52 than is justified. Heck, it even gets a mention in the 'Case For Christ' movie in order to justify the reliability of the text.

Is Jesus's "getting angry" in Papyrus Egerton 2 the same greek word "ὀργισθεὶς" as the textual variant of Mark 1:41?

Mark 1:41 contains an infamous textual variant. Jesus's response to a leper's begging to be healed is described in some manuscripts as σπλαγχνισθεὶς (being moved with compassion), and in other manuscripts as ὀργισθεὶς (becoming angry). I'm looking at English translations of Papyrus Egerton 2's scene...

Early Church Father quotations or allusions to the 'Question of Paying Taxes' pericope? (Mark 12:13-17 and parallels)

I'm currently researching what I can about this pericope. I've analyzed Matthew and Luke's alterations to Mark's version, the abbreviated scene in the Gospel of Thomas, the Papyrus Egerton 2 version of the story, and Marcion's version of it (partially quoted by Tertullian). Now I'm looking for other...

Re: The best case for Jesus's historicity: Mark Craig

Does anyone know if this book is just a reprint of Craig's 2015 'The Historical Jesus', or are they too totally different books?

Terullian and Irenaeus text recommendations...

I'm looking for some sort of book / series of volumes in English of the writings of Tertullian and Irenaeus that includes a scripture index and perhaps a mini running commentary. Something along the lines of the well known Hendrickson edition of 'The Complete Works of Josephus'. Any recommendations?

Re: does jesus' family think that he is mental?

Michael BG wrote:The problem with this is that the context is likely to have been added by Mark.
But Ehrman is talking about the way the verse reads in the Gospel of Mark, so for the purposes of his argument it's irrelevant whether this is an addition by a Markan redactor to something that no longer exists...
