Re: “Galilee” = Galatia ?

In addition, someone has argued that Jesus started the his preaching in Galilee because the Galilee was the last land to be converted to the Jewish God (among the Jewish regions), and according to the Pauline logic, the “last” will be the “first” to be saved etc. In all this, can a subtle competitio...

Re: “Galilee” = Galatia ?

Precisely, I don't understand why you repeat these things. Do you believe that I couldn't to find alone that your reference to 'Galilee' as 'circuit' etc?

Re: Was Jesus STONED and after crucified?

You should be thrown off the forum. This is offensive by you. When I would argue with a Christian apologist, I would like that he read OHJ of Richard Carrier so that at least he knows the better Mythicist arguments. This is the reason I like GakuseiDon in comparison to other apologists. But if you ...

“Galilee” = Galatia ?

Given what Dykstra, Adamczewski, R.G. Price say about Paul in Mark, no wonder if the same Galilee alludes to the same Galatia who was “purified” by Paul from the his “demonic” Judaizers.

Re: Was Jesus STONED and after crucified?

Where is the evidence that Gnosticism preceded more Orthodox forms of Christianity, and that Orthodoxy devolved out of Gnosticism? This is not precisely the argument of this thread. At any case, to answer to your question, the great mythicist Jean Magne has proved that the “fundamental exegesis” to...

Was Jesus STONED and after crucified?

Recently, Vridar has described the view of a French Mythicist, Marc Sthéphane: Before the gospel was written, the view of the death of Jesus that was set out in 1 Cor 2:8 aligned with the same narrative we read in the Ascension of Isaiah: the Prince of this world, Satan and his archangels, killed th...

Why Pilate? Because of "Messianization"

The author was writing for a Roman audience and decided to change the Jewish custom of hanging the body on a tree after death and place the crucifixion in a Roman setting: this further involved the need to have a Roman magistrate issue the final order for the crucifixion, and the name Pontius Pilat...

let's assume that Acts was correct, and Paul was a "tentmaker."
If they had the courage to reduce an anti-Moses (like Paul) to a “Second Moses”, then no wonder if they had also the courage to reduce an anti-creator to a “Second (Jewish) God” and so on.

“My God, my God, why have you CURSED me?”

In one manuscript line of the Gospel of Mark Jesus is said to have called out at his moment of death, “My God, my God, why have you cursed me?” — thus adhering to what Paul wrote about the fate of the Son of God; https://vridar.org/2018/10/13/jesus-from-a-corpse-hung-on-a-tree-to-a-man-slain-on-a-c...
