Re: Hermann Raschke's case for the Marcionite invention of John the Baptist in proto-Mark

Does Prof. Vinzent also say something about the fact that the Gospel of Marcion did exactly the same thing and Marcion's Jesus even quoted from the Hebrew Bible? Look at Ben's fine reconstruction of GMarcion! Attested are the wilderness, more than a prophet, the messenger, the fore-runner and the B...

Re: Hermann Raschke's case for the Marcionite invention of John the Baptist in proto-Mark

Prof Vinzent here is 1000% right: Of course, Christian readers who are so used to the Synoptics’ accounts of John the Baptist may no longer feel this strange character of a delayed opening. In contrast, if we ask the question, could Mark have added this passage to counter one of Marcion’s challenges...

Re: Hermann Raschke's case for the Marcionite invention of John the Baptist in proto-Mark

Note that also in Couchoud's reconstruction of the Evangelion the term "Son of Man" occurs: He was taken to the Sanhedrin, where he was asked if he was the Messiah. He replied, "If I tell you, you won't believe me. But soon the Son of Man will seat at the right hand of the Power of God. " "So, they ...

Re: Hermann Raschke's case for the Marcionite invention of John the Baptist in proto-Mark

So Prof Vinzent: The ‘Son of Man’ who can forgive sins, is the hot topic of this story, and, as the counter argument reveals, it remained Marcion’s view that this title worked against its Old Testament figure of Daniel and human insights. It should not be taken allegorically, and, therefore, was not...

Andrew is Hadrian

It seems that Hadrian protected the Christians and supported the Christian cult. Aelius Lampridius vita Alex. Severi c. 43: (Severus) Christo templum facere voluit eumque inter deos recipere, quod et Hadrianus cogitasse fertur, qui templa in omnibus civitatibus sine simulacris iusserat fieri, quae h...

Re: Hermann Raschke's case for the Marcionite invention of John the Baptist in proto-Mark

Robert Gundry is the Christian apologist I have referred above, even if probably Raschke meant a his precursor who did the same kind of argument. His view is reported here: In Mark 14.61b-64 the Jewish authorities accuse Jesus of blasphemy: 61b Again the high priest was questioning Him, and saying ...

Re: Hermann Raschke's case for the Marcionite invention of John the Baptist in proto-Mark

What is Resurrection from the Dead? the disciples ask now, of course, because they cannot imagine that he could die at all, because they are not convinced of the suffering of the Christ, as he has just appeared to them, now that he has revealed himself to them as Son of God, even less. (11) contrad...

Re: Hermann Raschke's case for the Marcionite invention of John the Baptist in proto-Mark

(10) Aus dieser Situation ist die Frage der Jünger klar: «Was soll dies Auferstehen von den Toten bedeuten?» Sie wissen natürlich, was Auferstehung im vulgären Sinne ist, aber was soll sie bedeuten im Angesichte der Tatsache, daß Jesus Gottes Sohn ist, wie sie soeben von Gott selbst vernommen haben...

Re: Hermann Raschke's case for the Marcionite invention of John the Baptist in proto-Mark

Tangential to the true identity of John the Baptist in proto-Mark, is the true identity of Jesus in proto-Mark. 61 But Jesus remained silent and gave no answer. Again the high priest asked him, “Are you the Messiah, the Son of the Blessed One ?” 62 “I am,” said Jesus. “And you will see the Son of Ma...

The centurion is Hadrian

Why the Latin centurio and not the apt Greek term ? Because the equivalent Hebrew term is spoken andriōn . Aramaic kintriōn means "the Ruler". So, if he is a positive character, then he is Hadrian, the first Emperor supportive of marcionite Christianity. While, if he is a negative character, he is t...
