Re: Bob Price makes the same my point about Mark 8:27-30!!!

BTW, above I should have more properly stated that: Judas (being one of the 12) knew that Jesus had proclaimed (to exclusively the inner circle of ...

Judas knew that Jesus was the Messiah, and by implication, the king of the Jews. Judas spilled the beans. Therefore Pilate knew, as did Caiaphas. This I believe is the essential viewpoint of Bart Ehrman.

Re: Bob Price makes the same my point about Mark 8:27-30!!!

I would go even farther and excise Peter from these verses. The "they" in verse 28 corresponding with the "them" in verse 30. 27 And Jesus went on with his disciples to the villages of Caesarea Philippi. And on the way he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that I am?” 28 And they told him: "You...

Re: Romans 10.6-7, Jonah, and Moses.

FWIW I think Origen offers some insight as to what the Marcionites saw in the passage: Consider, however, whether all men have in some way part in Him in His character as Logos. On this point the Apostle teaches us that He is to be sought not outside the seeker, and that those find Him in themselve...
