Re: Amos 4.13 in the OG.

and creates wind is κτίζων πνεῦμα this meant that the LXX of Amos 4:13, with its apparent references to Spirit and Christ became a central verse in the 4th century debate about whether the Holy Spirit was created or eternal.

Re: Secret Mark, GRS Mead and Morton Smith

As I started the pursuit of a copy of March's edition and translation of The Books of Hierotheos," I stumbled across this: (Merkur, Dan ) The Mystery of Manna: The Psychedelic Sacrament of the Bible (2000, pp 74-75) https://books.google.com/books?id=isUMf ... navlinks_s Merkur does not come across ...

Re: Origen's commentary on Matthew (for Andrew Criddle)

Hi Ben Sorry for the delay. I said that the Demonstratio had little circulation in the west because it does not appear to have been translated into Latin and the Latin fathers show little knowledge of it. Jerome mentions it briefly in Illustrious Men Eusebius bishop of Caesarea in Palestine was dili...

Re: Secret Mark, GRS Mead and Morton Smith

The Book of Hierotheos was translated and published by FS Marsh in 1927. In its present form it is generally regarded as later than pseudo-Dionysius. However the existing manuscripts may be a revised form of an earlier text. It is still disputed whether the Hierotheos who supposedly taught Dionysius...

Re: Does Acts 10:41 deny Acts 10:39 ?

The only point in Acts where it is claimed that the Apostles knew the “historical” Jesus: And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree... (Acts 10:39) Acts 10:41: He was not seen by all the people, but by witness...

Re: Eusebius as a forger.

Andrew Criddle wrote: At face value pseudo-Hegesippus' text of Josephus has Jesus referred to as more than human but not explicitly as the Christ. One should also note that pseudo-Hegesippus mentions John the Baptist after Jesus (as in our texts of Josephus but not in Eusebius) and that there is no...

Re: Why Papias is a liar about the connection Mark/Peter

The Church of Corinth claimed that it was created by Paul and Peter , when really it was created by Paul only. Idem for the Gospel of Mark. It was claimed in connection someway with Peter, when really it is so completely pauline and anti-petrine. There is clearly a pattern at work, here. Hence the ...

Re: Paul never attacked Paganism and this is strange

...unless this is evidence that the epistles were written in places very distant from Judea, where the existence of Paganism around was simply assumed without opposition. Digression: Stephen, I know we differ on this, and in fact many points, largely because we hold that the ethnic replacement of J...

Re: Eusebius as a forger.

I question Inowlocki’s interpretation of the evidence on the issue. The question is what sort of use Eusebius might have made of Origen. To say Eusebius was heavily influenced by Origen is an understatement, and many of his arguments were developments of ones found in Origen. In DE 3.5, prior to ci...
