Re: Patristic One-Liners: Marcion

Fascinating stuff! There seems to be sufficient research in the above to warrant a book.

Re: A sad notice

Re: The "Sea" of Galilee as allegory of the hylic matter

Paul doesn't claim that he ascended to the third heaven, but rather that he knew someone who ascended to the third heaven.

Re: Lena Einhorn's ideas

"The arrest and trial of Paul are almost an exact repeat of what happened to Jesus (before the verdict), albeit spread out over a longer time: Both Jesus and Paul are arrested after having created a tumult in the Temple in Jerusalem. Both are taken to the Roman authorities, which – in both instance...

Re: Is it Fair to Say that Joseph of Arimathea Was Introduced to Prove the Empty Tomb Was Miraculous?

I've actually once ran across a business manager at one company I visited who confidently asserted that Jose...

Re: David Bentley Hart’s NT Translation "Recaptures the Awkward, Multivoiced Power of the Original."

"You come from a father who is the Slanderer; and you wish to do your father's wishes. That one was a killer of men from the beginning, and did not stand upon the truth, because truth is not in him.
