Re: BeDuhn's & Klinghardt's solutions to the Synoptic Problem

On a general point. I think we should distinguish between two claims. A/ the plausible claim that Marcion's Gospel is a very early witness to the text of Luke, a text which was in flux in the second century and hence Marcion's Gospel may at many points preserve the original text which has been alter...

Re: Is Celsus simply possibilist about a historical Jesus, but not really "historicist"?

Celsus seems to accept that a historical Jesus existed. He appears to be more dubious as to the historical basis of the miracle stories about Jesus.

Re: Is the lack of demons in OT unusual?

The OT is clearly hostile to dealings between the living and the dead. See the witch of Endor narrative.

Re: Works of Irenaeus of Lyon and Origins translated into Latin are reliable?

Just for the sake of the spirit of the discussion, here is an analysis of the Latin translation of Irenaeus' AH 3.16.9 compared to Luke 23:34 Vulgate: Irenaeus, AH 3.16.9 (Harvey) [/b] Irenaeus, AH 3.16.9 (ANF vol 1) [/b] 1 Peter 2:23 (Vulgate) [/b] 1 Peter 2:23 (Douay Rheems) [/b] qui cum vapulare...

Re: Works of Irenaeus of Lyon and Origins translated into Latin are reliable?

If Origins should be Origen then the Latin translations of Origen are of doubtful reliability.
Most of the translations were made by Rufinus c. 400 CE and it is clear that Rufinus updated and censored Origen in order to conform to late 4th century orthodoxy.

Re: Irenaeus Says that the Valentinians Used the Johannine Prologue Rather than the Gospel of John as Such

We know from Origen that the early Valentinian Heracleon wrote a commentary on the Gospel of John. (The Gospel not just the prologue.)

Re: "Eli eli" at the ninth hour is a prayer? (Mark 15:34)

Origen makes a connection with the parable of the vineyard with the 11th hour = the resurrection Interesting, thanks. Do you remember where?

Re: Philip

I think it unlikely that Paul would have been given authority to persecute Christians over positions that were only objectionable to the Pharisees.

Re: What are the oldest manuscripts we have of modern liturgies used in the Catholic, Orthodox, and non-Chalc. churches?

The Apostolic Tradition attributed to Hippolytus probably dates from the first half of the third century.
There is a fragmentary Latin Manuscript dating from the fifth century.
