Re: About Jesus Bar-Abbas aka Joses Bar-Nabas the first collaborator of Paul

I've interpreted Jesus Barabbas (Jesus, son of the father) as being a duplicate of Jesus, but what makes you think that the double was meant to serve as a parody of Marcion's Jesus? It's true that twinning Jesus is somewhat in line with Marcion's dualism, but nothing about Barabbas himself seems pa...

Re: About Jesus Bar-Abbas aka Joses Bar-Nabas the first collaborator of Paul

Curiously, Adamczewski connects Bar-Abbas with Bar-Nabas. But Adamczewski is a Catholic priest, hence probably an apologist. He doesn't know Couchoud's argument about bar-Abbas as parody of the Son of Father. This only fact makes him de facto totally unable to interpret correctly the Barabbas episod...

Re: About Jesus Bar-Abbas aka Joses Bar-Nabas the first collaborator of Paul

It is interesting also the connection of John with the Wilderness, before, and with the Prison, after. Both Wilderness and Prison are allegories of Sheol . The Galilee was chosen because Isaiah 9:1-2 describes the Galilee as a Sheol. In the marcionite incipit Jesus descends to Capernaum = “Place of ...

Re: About Jesus Bar-Abbas aka Joses Bar-Nabas the first collaborator of Paul

Another scenario, slighty more probable: If the Paraclete is the Risen Jesus , then the prediction of the Paraclete coincides with the prediction of the same Entity who was seen by Paul. According to Marcion , only Paul ( SOLUS PAULUS! ) realized the true message of the Risen Jesus. Hence, only Paul...

About Jesus Bar-Abbas aka Joses Bar-Nabas the first collaborator of Paul

It is strange in Acts the fact that the first collaborator of Paul is just “the son of Paraclete” . “And Joses , who by the apostles was surnamed Barnabas , (which is, being interpreted, The son of consolation ,) a Levite, and of the country of Cyprus,” (Act 4:36) “Joses Barnabas” resembles just... ...

Re: The crucifixion's function is to claim that Jesus is Christ

Qumranic Evidence that the tau is the symbol par excellence of the Jewish Messiah, independently from Jesus: These shall escape at the end of the visitation, and they that remain will be delivered to the sword, when there will come the Anointed from Aaron and Israel. As it was at the end of the fir...

Re: The crucifixion's function is to claim that Jesus is Christ

The crucifixion was not connected with the Jesus cult, in a first moment, but that link was “read” in the scriptures, against the Gnostics: Trypho: Of what [signs] do you speak? Justin: When the people waged war with Amalek, and the son of Nave (Nun) by name Jesus (Joshua), led the fight, Moses hims...

The crucifixion's function is to claim that Jesus is Christ

The tau is the signature of the creator. Oh, that I had someone to hear me! I sign now my defense —let the Almighty answer me; let my accuser put his indictment in writing. (Job 31:35) “I sign now my defense” may be translated as: “I put my tau” . It represents also the end times. Hence the crucifix...

Re: Romans 5:6 : when is precisely the “right time”

Still: The main question I have for anybody who thinks that Paul did not regard Jesus' death as recent is this: what time frame does "the fullness of time" (Galatians 4.4) or "the right time" (Romans 5.6) refer to? What did Paul have in mind? Anything hazy here is simply out for me, because the text...

Why Galilee? Because of Sheol

Isaiah 9:1-2 9 Nevertheless, there will be no more gloom for those who were in distress. In the past he humbled the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, but in the future he will honor Galilee of the nations, by the Way of the Sea, beyond the Jordan— The people walking in darkness have seen a g...
