Re: the critical text corruption spins you around again

Note that based on the above the qualitative Textual support strongly favors "home". First, qualitative is circular to the Critical Text methodology. Second, you seem unawares that the apparatus hides many Byzantine supports for textual variants, under a rigging concept that is in the introduction....

Re: Jesus is simply saying not to observe the traditions of the Pharisees

To call food kosher refers to its permissibility for eating by Jews as defined in the Torah , these laws are observed to the letter by pious Jews even today, These dietary laws , kashrut , was not the modification Jesus was opposing in Mark 7. The innovation of the Pharisees that Jesus found unacce...

Re: It's all yours (Was about a non-Nazareth indicator)

I think at this point you are leaving your own criteria behind. Sure, it "is reasonable that Mark was the main source for the other three canonical gospels". It's a judgment call. We don't have any solid evidence for this claim. This is even more true for the claim that "[w]e don't know of any gosp...

Re: Raphael Haim Golb

Thanks for the correction, Stephen, to my late-night posting. The large numbers should have been to the approximately 50 counts of various misdemeanors. Generally, nobody was hurt, a little sock-puppetry in action, stuff that was easily handled on forums. You and I were on one forum, and I liked you...

Re: Raphael Haim Golb

Well there is an FRBD archive online (bcharchive.org) and freeratio.org is gone, and I did not realize that IIDB was still accessible by anybody. Again, I want to emphasize that in your post nothing salacious connects at all to Raphael Golb . You reference other controversies with other people on ot...

Re: Herod and the slaughter of babies-- messianism too!!

Lots of fantasy here, which is ironic. Steven Avery is the only name I have used here. Years back on IIDB or FRDB I posted as Praxeus and signed Steven Avery. No sock-puppets, no sock-puppies.

Re: Raphael Haim Golb

I don't remember the posts on the forums being salacious at all, granted it was about 15 years ago. I remember a bit of confusion "where did that fellow come from?". "Who is that masked man?". Of course, even back then moderators had tools to do things like putting new posters on moderation, that pr...

Re: Raphael Haim Golb

Wait, Norman was never banned from nuttin. Some limitations were placed on Raphael, but I do not know if they are active. Of course, his lawyer might well advise him not to mix it up too much even if there is no court limitations that apply. My dad had a very sharp mind past 95, so there is no reaso...

Re: Why Are Historicists So Certain That Jesus Existed?

The problem here from what I can see is that "the writings", even if it is the text, does not mean that more than one writing applies. "I found the story of Huckleberry Finn in the writings of Samuel Clemens." - It might well be in only one writing where it is found, it is simply saying that Clemens...
