Re: Was the birth story in Luke/Matthew originally referred to John the Baptist

Note this, Giuseppe. Simon Magus was said to have possessed the Name of God. Who else possessed the Name of God? The Angel who led the Hebrews out of Egypt in a pillar of fire, during the theophany, and Jesus/God’s Salvation Christ. Even Isu is a derivative of Ishu, the Man, the name of the Angel w...

Re: Was the birth story in Luke/Matthew originally referred to John the Baptist

It is incredible how Joseph D.L. continues to talk obsessively about Jewish archangels without be able to explain the case Barabbas. Barabbas is the only window we have to infer the identity of the enemies of our authors. Hardly we have something of more evident, as window of that kind, than Barabba...

Re: Was the birth story in Luke/Matthew originally referred to John the Baptist

Joseph D.L. you continue to ignote totally, entirely and completely the my strongest argument about Barabbas (see above). But while your ignorance of the point is not a novelty, I have fixed now the ignorance of perseusomega9 about the same point. If you are able to prove me wrong about Barabbas , t...

Re: Was the birth story in Luke/Matthew originally referred to John the Baptist

Barabbas refers polemically to the Son of Father of a totally different sect of Christians, i.e. gentile Christians who adored a Jesus who was not the son of YHWH and was rather an enemy of YHWH. Unless of course Yahweh is the Son of El Elyon, in which case Jesus is a theophany of Yahweh of grace, ...

Re: On the goodness of Pilate

If the pope was coherent, then he should edit and correct a lot of other NT passages where the creator seems to be really the killer of Jesus.

Re: On the goodness of Pilate

We all know the story about the Lord's Prayer. Instead of saying “lead us not into temptation”, it will say “do not let us fall into temptation” https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/world/2019/jun/06/led-not-into-temptation-pope-approves-change-to-lords-prayer The embarrassment would be ...

Re: Was the birth story in Luke/Matthew originally referred to John the Baptist

I see, you truly worship Richard Carrier. Anyone thing stated outside of what he believes must be wrong and therefore stupid. Wow, talk about free thinking thrown outside the window. Sorry, but this is not a political discourse. Richard Carrier has merely fixed the obvious thing: that for Paul Jesu...

Re: Was "Mark", just as Apollos, learned in paulinism?

Giuseppe -- Rather, this confirms that after the Herodians are overthrown and a ... no, no, you are totally wrong. Acts 6:14 fixes the point about the meaning of the destruction of the old temple, for the same story found so embarrassing by "Mark": For we have heard him say that this Jesus of Nazar...

Re: Was the birth story in Luke/Matthew originally referred to John the Baptist

Did I say that the baptism of Jesus by John was a problem? If so, I missed it. this your answer is evidence of real ignorance, without offence, but really really true ignorance. The entire consensus is already with me in recognizing the fact that the baptism of Jesus by John was a problem, for "Mar...
