According to C.G. Jung, (an early colleague of Sigmund Freud) the attitudes of the ego are invariably partial and prejudicial, even at the extreme utterly defective. In dreams, the unconscious presents to the ego alternative perspectives that compensate these maladaptive or dysfunctional attitudes....

Re: Papias and the disciples of the Lord.

Hegesippus on James may possibly be paralleled in Philostratus Life of Apollonius book one. And having said this he [Apollonius] declined to live upon a flesh diet, on the ground that it was unclean, and also that it made the mind gross; so he partook only of dried fruits and vegetables, for he said...

Re: eusebius and origen

Scrivener: We are thus warranted, as well from direct evidence as from the analogy of the Old Testament, to believe that Eusebius mainly resorted for his Constantinopolitan Church-books to the codices of Pamphilus, which might once have belonged to Origen. What critical corrections (if any) he vent...

Re: What can we say about the Ophites?

No he doesn't. He just speaks about Christians. No mention of 'Ophites.' Origen confirms this (6.24) After the instance borrowed from the Mithraic mysteries, Celsus declares that he who would investigate the Christian mysteries, along with the aforesaid Persian, will, on comparing the two together,...

The sect never existed. Made up Church Father nonsense and lies.
Assuming Origen is reporting Celsus more or less accurately, Celsus iprovides non-Christian evidence for the existence of the Ophites.

That's OK.
You believe then that the High Priest's house and the fire and all are accurate representations of the story that is stated and implied?
The story may not be accurate but I don't regard it as allegorical in the way that IIUC you do.

Re: The gospel of John an independent witness?

I don't think that the interrogation of Jesus is represented as taking place in the temple, if that is what you are suggesting. But I may be misunderstanding you. 1. Thank you for replying. 2. I am not implying that "The Interrogation of Jesus" takes place in the Temple. I am looking at possible Co...

Jordan Peterson

I've started this thread with reservations because I fear it will become an unprofitable political debate, but I am interested in members views about Peterson's Jungian interpretation of the Bible and other religious texts.
