Re: Boanerghes = Dioscuri = the two thieves = Archons

That alone would not be so bad, because we all essentially do that. But you act as if you have uncovered, dare I say, the truth and ostensibly ignore any critical opinion as being worthless or uninformed. It is not true, since I don't go to write in the your thread by saying you that you are wrong ...

Why Pilate? Because of the his long rule

Because, after Valerius Gratus, he was the only Roman governor who ruled more time than any other Roman governor of Judea: Coponius : 3 years. Marcus Ambibulus: 3 years. Annius Rufus: 3 years. Valerius Gratus : 11 years. Pontius Pilate: 10 years. Marcellus: 1 year. Marullus: 4 years. Cuspius Fadus: ...

Re: Why Jesus was euhemerized according to J. K. Watson

Also the Mythicist Maurice Mergui argues an identical reason to euhemerize Jesus. A short synthesis of the book of Mergui in English is given here: By careful analysis, Dubourg and Mergui show that all the wordplays in the NT allude to passages of the AT or the Midrashs or the Talmud. According to D...

Re: John and not Jesus satisfied the 4000

If the original story had only seven breads that were given to the crowd to make them go along the "way" in all the directions of the world, then the interpolator had transformed this story in one where 12 breads were given to people to make them return to their places of origin, indebted to who gav...

Re: Boanerghes = Dioscuri = the two thieves = Archons

I like Price, but I'm not going to refer to him because what good would that serve my arguments? I don't like Carrier because his model is twisted and disingenuous. This is sufficient, in my view, to judge you (or better: any your reconstructions of the Origins) negatively. Any rational people can'...

Re: Pilate as a later addition in Mark

The Talmud knows the Gospels but not Pilate: But why does the Talmud insist on the strange detail of the herald announcing the execution forty days before it takes place? The plain answer it gives is to leave enough time for prospective witnesses in Jesus’ defense to come forward and to argue agains...

Pierre -E. Guillet. “Entree en scene de Pilate,” CahCercErnRen 24 (98, ’77) 1-24.Nothing in the Talmud or the genuine Pauline letters attributes a role to Pilate in the death of Jesus.

Re: Boanerghes = Dioscuri = the two thieves = Archons

Okay. Why is one thief saved because he accepts Jesus as the Christ in Luke? It is evident that you don't read Robert M. Price. In the his book Incredible Shrinking Son of Man: How Reliable Is the Gospel Tradition? , this scholar says that the Good Thief was invented by Luke to disconnect Jesus fro...

Re: Boanerghes = Dioscuri = the two thieves = Archons

You are totally wrong, as usual. Who insults/attacks Jesus is necessarily an euhemerization of archontic forces.
